Compact design, not bad for the price

I've had an Edgestar for 4 years and it serves me well. At first it wouldn't get cold enough which is a common problem with this model, but with help from the forum, I took care of it. There is a topic that contains step by step instructions on how to adjust the temperature range of the thermostat.

For someone who has space restrictions, this is likely the smallest unit you will find anywhere that can still fit a 1/2 barrel. Keep in mind that will only be with the CO2 bottle mounted on the outside rear (hardware included). However, you can reduce the overall footprint further by using smaller barrels (1/6 or 1/4) and stowing the gas cylinder inside.

This unit also comes with everything required for it to be used as a normal mini refrigerator if for some reason you no longer wish to dispense draft beer. There are 2 shelves, and a plug for the top if you should wish to remove the tower.
