I wanted a small chest freezer with vents on the side instead of the back & an indicator light that shows it’s on and working. This fits the bill. I’ve had it for about 3 weeks.

We've only had this freezer for about three weeks now, but so far it is working as advertised. We put a thermometer in the freezer that goes down to -20 degrees F and with the coldness dial turned to about 3/4 of maximum the thermometer has been at -20 the whole time. The unit occasionally makes some odd gurgling noises but it is not very noisy overall. I can't speak to long-term reliability but initial performance is as hoped.

Great little chest freezer
I have only had this freezer for a few weeks, but so far it works great. It is small but actually has more room inside (plenty for me, a single lady) than my bigger, old antique freezer. I was worried at first because after you close the lid, you cannot immediately pull it open again, and I thought it was getting stuck because of a problem with it. But I Googled this problem and discovered other people had the same problem and one good reply indicated this means the lid has good suction, something to do with warm air going in and creating a vacuum. You just need to wait a good minute or two, then it opens easily again.

3.8 Chest Freezer - Liking it so Far.
We're happy with it so far. Nice and compact. It's not too loud, but you do need to get used to the sounds it makes, unless you put it in a room you aren't in often.

    Great temperature control and quiet operation
    I purchased the subject freezer in March this year for additional storage/backup for my 20 year old fridge freezer, as additional insurance for the pandemic. Delivery was fast, only a minor paint scratch on one side, runs quiet and keeps good temperature control. I used it for about 4 months with no issues. Given the great operating performance, in July I ordered another one for ease of defrost use, product rotation and additional storage/ backup if needed. At about 5 1/2 months I unplugged unit #1 and found only a small buildup of frost that amounted to about 75 ml of water. I plugged unit # 2 in just after and it got to freezer temperature within 2 hours. I found that in both units the thermostat dial can sit around the 9 o'clock position to maintain a freezer temperature of around -16 C (reading via a fridge freezer thermometer placed inside). I set up both units just off my kitchen so I can monitor the operation and hear when the refrigerant in moving through the unit and know that it is operating. Compared to my fridge, both units are about 70% quieter. Unit #1 was manufactured in China 2018-09 and unit #2, that I purchased in July but didn't use until about 2 weeks ago was manufactured in 2020-05. I have found no obvious difference in appearance or operation between the two. The white colour coordinates well with my 3 white kitchen appliances.
