This Keg fit perfect into our renovated basement bar space. We've used it a few time so far and everything works well, looks nice and appears to be of good quality so far. Our male guests were very jealous and wanted to know where it came from.

Great addition to our Browns bar
We bought the Dansby as a replacement for a much more expensive unit and I will say that it has out performed the old on tremendously.

Great kegerator....but Home Depot experience was pretty bad
I love the kegerator, works great...especially after a few mods. No temperature display, but a quick fix by adding an indoor/outdoor digital thermometer with a probe inside the unit. Just be sure to put the probe in a cup of water so you are measuring the liquid temperature not air temperature. I used the gel from an ice pack in a small container for a more permanent solution. Holds the temperature pretty well, generally fluctuates between 34-36 degrees at about half power. I also added a homemade tower cooler. You will get quite a but of foam on the first pour without it. Now for the bad stuff... I ordered this online for in store pickup. It came in quickly, but when I went to pick it up at the store I noticed a large hole in the box. Checked it out and found a pretty major dent in the back of the unit. Customer service agreed to take off 15% which I was satisfied with. Started loading my jeep and noticed parts missing...no tower, regulator, co2 tank, hoses, coupler...it was a dented fridge with a hole in the top that's it. Brought it back inside and waited over an hour while they searched the store for another box. They couldn't find anything so they had to give me my money back and re-order. They agreed to give me 15% off the next one, and free shipping to my house because of the inconvenience. The second kegerator comes directly to my house, again quickly...box was in much better shape but there was a small dent on the side. Then I opened the box and found all of the parts just thrown in the fridge. Regulator was damaged, drip tray missing leveling feet, co2 tank holder completely crushed. All of the parts were included, and although damaged everything worked. I called Home Depot online and they agreed to take an additional 15% off due to the damage. I'm disappointed with the packaging/shipping quality. This is probably more Danby's fault than Home Depot. I am satisfied since Home Depot tried to make things right and took some money off.

Does it's job
When I received this product the outside box was beat up pretty bad, but the box inside was in good shape. The only thing that was damaged on the unit itself was that the backing part on one of the shelves was snapped off. With that said, I don't care about this since I won't be using them anyway. The only reason that I mentioned it was I know there are some people that would really care about something like that. I put it all together with no problems, other then re-drilling a few holes, it was very easy to do and there were no leaks with it after hooking up my first 1/2 barrel to it. You need to have a stand alone thermometer to get the temp set right, it had no problem getting the temp down and keeping it at 34F. Over all I would say that this is the best value out there. I have been using it for about 3 weeks now with no problems. I would defiantly recommend this to a friend.

Product simple and straight forward in setup and usage
Kegerator is a must as beer is better by draft. Especially for those who spent time in Europe and appreciate a good beer. Nice to be able to chill my beer where I want it instead of freezing the wife's produce in the fridge.
