    Has a serious Learning Curve, if you have never used one! It works great, but getting the pressure and temperature settings correct took an entire 15.5 gallon keg (which I actually froze the beer and ruined it)! Temp came set at 4 and is now a 2 1/2 (I would highly recommend starting there). Also start the pressure regulator slowly and have a few before making any adjustments (I actually did this to fast also and spiked my pressure at 30+ psi, which then takes a long time to come back down). Right about 10 psi works great!

    This kegerator was an exciting, long desired gift. Unfortunately, this particular unit is loaded with problems. The temperature control range swings 10.0 / 11.5 degrees. The tap handle sticks. And the pressure regulator does not respond to control. Best Buy has been very gracious in allowing time flexabilty in returning the unit for a full refund.

    I was very happy with my purchase. The price was the lowest I could find and it works quite well. Free home shipping was an added bonus. Very simple to put together. The only issue I have is with the CO2 regulator. It is very finicky and I had to set it very low so there isn't a ton of foam in my beer. It makes for a slow pour, but you get used to it

    I purchased this unit due a 20% discount that Bestbuy was running. Delivered to my door in 3 days. Went and purchased a keg and filled the tank that it came with. Got the keg and tank home and was literally pouring beer 10 minutes later. The regulator can be a little tricky to adjust just perfectly but once the tank chills to an even temp, the pressures have maintained. So far I have had 10 pours on this unit and all of them have been great.

    This is my first kegerator so I can't attest to how well this performs to higher end models. However, I must say that finding a name brand stainless steel kegerator for less than $500 is difficult. I bought this on sale at Bestbuy. It works great! Assembly was easy. The unit did come dented on the door, but it was so minor it didn't feel worth taking back. It cools the beer to 34 degrees at the 5.5/6.0 setting. Keeping beer cold is key and keeping CO2 levels in check is key in reducing foam. Unfortunately, I had about 3 lbs of CO2 leak out. It was my fault for not putting the supplied O ring on the keg coupler and I don't believe I fully twisted the keg coupler properly on my second keg. However, CO2 is cheap ($15 at local paintball supply in the Atlanta area). It's only a pain in that I live 30 min from my supplier. So make sure your connections are tight and secure. The best way to check for leaks is with soapy water and by weighing the tank (it weighs 8.14 lbs, so just add 5 to that for a full tank weight excluding the regulator and hosing). A 5lb tank should last about 6 half kegs or 17 1/6 kegs (I get the 1/6 kegs to change it up more often and to save my back hauling it upstairs). So, I think the 5 lb tanks works out great. If your beer is too foamy just increase the temperature dial number on the back of the fridge (lower temp) and lower your CO2 (using less is better, right? @@@@@@@ . You may also want to consider using keg lube on your O rings and invest in a cleaning system (I use it after every 2 kegs). I recommend Brew Clean by Keg Connection and Petro Gel food grade lubricant. I don't see the need for a tower fan for this unit. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
