Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mikemx5419 Great kegerator for the money...
As I stood in the the store debating to buy or not buy I read online reviews on how terrible this product is... Not getting cold enough being the main issue... Although their packaging could use work I see no issues with the temp.. It took me a few days to get the temp where I wanted it but I could freeze a cup of water on the medium setting. A couple small dents in the door not really a show stopper for me... Other main complaint issue with instruction manual... Honestly I put mine together without ever opening it so not sure what kind of folks are having issues.... EBay the co2 tank and put your $$ towards a 10 or 20# tank of course it will have to sit outside the unit but there is no restrictions on where you bring your gas line in the coils are easily seen inside the fridge... Buy this product without worry! Cheers!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oregonlivin1970 5 stars for sure!
Not sure what the bad reviews are about for this system. It comes with everything you need, except for the bottle not being full with CO2, and a keg. I paid $298.00 for this thing, and it is awesome. Keeps my B.L. pony keg @ 36 F, with cooling to spare. The instructions are easy as pie, if you can read english and have half a mechanical brain. It's defiantly not rocket surgery your performing here. It's simple to put together, and nothing leaks, and no dents in my sheet metal. Like any thing, it takes some adjusting to get to pour with a low head, but that's the fun part. Just by it, you wont regret it!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ryan GET IT ON SALE!
I saw this unit drop to $300 after Xmas and ended up passing, but found it on clearance a month later for $200! It doesn't get ice cold, but that's OK because I don't drink watered down domestics. I have a quart of water in the back next to the CO2 tank reading 38F on the max setting. The beer coming out of the tap is reading 46F, which is fine by me. The beer in my fridge is ~40F and that's almost too cold IMO. The unit had some damage on the bottom and I almost brought it back but I don't think it will cause any serious issues. The tower is kind of weak (seems loose) but it looks like I'll be able to install an aftermarket one pretty easily. It basically just screws onto the part that connects to the hole on top so hopefully I can screw a different one on. As far as size, I can easily fit three 3gal cornys plus the CO2 tank with one corny on the compressor hump in the back (needs a bit of support) or minus 2 cornys and replace w a 6.5gal carboy. It came with a 2.5# CO2 tank which was nice, also a dual gauge regulator which I have yet to test (I have a taprite) and a sanke (D type?) keg coupler (wont be using but seems sturdy). This is my first kegerator and I am so far pleased with the purchase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wadeisarunner pretty good item
This is an average item. It takes some time to figure out exactly which accesories are required to buy. While it is a Kegger and there are so many out there to pick from, this is an average one and for the price, it does it's job. Home Depot did a nice job of getting it to the warehouse (free shipping) and helping me to load it up to my truck. All a good experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CharlesFinley Great kegerator for a great price
We took off standard tower and replaced with a three faucet tower. This refrigerator can accommodate two 1/6 kegs or three kegs (two 2.5 gal corny kegs plus one 1/6 keg). This refrigerator could also hold two 5 gal corny kegs plus one 2.5 gal keg. Keeps beer cold and each to switch over to a three faucet tower. Overall, great product at a great price. Well worth the investment.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kayakguy40 Works as advertised but be aware of a few things
This unit is pretty straight forward, it keeps beer cold. I use mine in a garage without AC, not in direct sunlight. It keeps a solid 43 to 45 degree temp. I'm sure it could go colder in my house. For the price and value I took the opinion I was buying a keg sized fridge that just happened to be supplied with a bottle, tap and regulator. It works but be aware of a few things.
1. go ahead and buy a 20lb bottle from Airgas or your local gas/wielding supply store. It lasts longer and almost no one has the 5 lbs for exchange. Not much money, I think I exchanged mine for $24. Do this when you order the unit because they don't ship bottles with CO2 in them and you'll have one ready go when it arrives.
2. This unit comes with a standard "D" sankey (tap) which is for American beers, if you like European beers those kegs require an "S" sankey, Germans use an "A" and Guinness uses a "U".
3. very important- test your system for leaks. While $15 to 20 for CO2 isn't the end of the world if there is a leak it can get pricey and inconvenience as most suppliers aren't open on weekends. I used a 5 gallon bucket full of water and immediately noticed a leak from the PSI gauge itself, not the connection. I turn the system off between pours while I'm waiting on another gauge to show. If the new gauge from Igloo leaks, I'll go and buy a nicer quality regulator from a supply store.
All in all, I'd rather they sold unit without the tap and bottle for less money but its still a good value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bobby32 Perfect for Rec Room
Whether you are putting a keg in this or not, the storage capacity is great. I have faced no issues with this item so far. It has been a great addition to my man cave.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Terrible Quality, have to return it.
The CO2 tanked leaked out after three days. When I assembeled it per directions I used Snoop to leak check my connections. On second CO2 fill I found leaks from the factory regulator at the dial gauges and the pressure release pin.
The tank twist valve does not seal closed under normal hand pressure.
The fridge makes very strange sounds and doesn't get under 43 degrees. And thats inside the house in December.
This is my first kegerator and it stinks! I am just going to build my own with quality parts.
