Do you like it. My kegerator went kaput 2 months ago and just got the go ahead to install a new one but finding reviews of any kegerator has been tough. Wanted to see what other's experience has been like.

Thinking about this one (link attached)


Does that really say $1500?

That better pour your beer and bring it to you.


I've had an absolute kick ass year. While doing my research

There appeared a huge difference between prices. Haiers were listed at 700 for a double tap and I wanted to if there is a difference. I also think paying more up front can save you money in g the long run. IA just confirmed what I was thinking.


The difference is the front venting.

It's the same with full size refrigerators. Built-In requires front venting, and makes them much, much more expensive.

This is (part of) the reason that Sub-Zeros are so expensive.


I'm happy with my Haier.

I bought a two tap Haier (which I've since added a third tap to) a little over 5 years ago and have never had a problem. I'm not sure what you are looking for but mine is rear vented so you cannot install it like the one you have linked.

Also, I don't have any experience with the one you linked so I can't compare the two.


That's about right for a quality front venting kegerator.

You can save nearly $1000 by getting a rear venting, cheaper unit, but you can not install it underneath a counter.

A Summit will last forever.

The nice thing about having a Summit or a Marvel (I have a Marvel) is that if the compressor does go kaput, each company has a robust service network and a qualified repairman is never far away... One does not have to discard the kegerator for such reasons.
