    Looking at the advert:

    A glass door so that I can ensure my keg is there? Ummmm..ok.

    FYI: 1/6 barrels are generally in the ballpark of 12 packs in terms of cost per oz...just saying.

    Cool air is everywhere! (Except the tower where all of the warmest air collects)

    My personal opinion is that this is the kiddie-pool version of the real deal. Take your $426.55 and double it by folding it in half and walking away from this toy.

    Sorry, maybe I should have clarified that I am looking for a home for homerewed cornys.

    yeah, ice ace hit it on the head.
    will this unit work for your corneys? sure. is it a good deal? absolutley not.

    personally, i think this $426 deal is the answer to the question nobody was asking. but if it is something that looks like the sun and the stars to you, go ahead and buy it.

    If that unit can only fit one corny keg which it seems to be the case then it surely is not worth it. For around that price you can build a beautiful keezer that holds 4+ corny's. Find a cheap chest freezer either on craigslist or on sale at Home Depot/Lowes and you're well on your way.

    you can find plenty of full sized kegerators that hold 3 cornies for about the same price. You can also build your own out of a chest freezer for less than that. Looks like Edgestar hired a marketing person from the old AB team. They like to throw you a bunch of facts that sound good on the surface but really are quite meaningless and useless. "This is the famous Budweiser beer. We know of no brand produced by any other brewer which costs so much to brew and age."
