Insignia™ - 5.0 Cu. Ft. Chest Freezer - White Model: NS-CZ50WH6SKU: 8390036 Review:
Purchased June 22, 2018
Things to take note of: After purchasing, let the unit sit upright for the good part of a day- allows cooling system fluids to properly settle. Before plugging in, make sure the freezer adjustment control is set to off. Plug the unit in any 15 amp receptacle. Do NOT use a GFCI receptacle on any freezer or refrigerator, as sudden changes in current, as when the compressor turns on and off may trip it, and say goodbye to your food. Once plugged in, adjust control to 6 o'clock (medium). This seems to be plenty cold for this unit. Check the temperature with a freezer guage, under $10 most places.
The unit does come with an on indicator with a nice blue glow. Note, don't get too caught up in getting a larger freezer because it is only $20 more. Go by what you need. I can see I will almost never fill this freezer, and an empty freezer serve no purpose. I put a 25 pound turkey on the bottom, and I'm guessing I could fit five more. Perfect size and will fit in tight places; 28.75" Wide x 21" Deep x 33.5" High. Unit is quiet most of the time. A slight but noticeable hum when compressor kicks in- not a distraction.
Keep in mind that all of these promotional freezers are coming off the same assembly line in China regardless of brand. Best Buy purchases container loads just like Haier/GE and Frigidaire do. That is why the models look virtually the same. It is also why availability is hot and cold. Best Buy can't simply stock these all of the time, because of changes in cost. Containers come in, and they quickly sell out, so there are delays in availability. Get one while they have them!
