I was looking to purchase a good quality freezer that would fit into a specific small area. When finding the SPT 3-cubic feet freezer at an affordable price and that would fit into that space, I was excited. I ordered the freezer and within several days it was delivered to my home. The freezer was packaged with great care and arrived in perfect condition. It was easy to unpack and set-up. It took only a couple of hours to reach the proper temperature to begin using. The freezer is much more quiet than I thought it would be. The design of the front door rather than flip-top makes it so easy to access the inside baskets which hold a great deal of frozen foods. I am enjoying this freezer and would highly recommend this to those in need of a smaller size freezer.
The freezer arrived very fast and is quietly humming. It is so quiet that I have to check it's actually working. It is! The freezer's size is exactly what I needed as an extra space for big family gatherings and for freezing big batches of soups for the winter. I like the pull-out baskets and the key (curious grandkids all over the place). If SPT would find a way to put the temperature control knob somewhere on the front of the freezer and not at the bottom on the back it would be a perfect product.
This freezer is perfect. Whisper quiet, small footprint, but the drawers hold MUCH more than a shelf would. Curtails all the oddly shaped things that slide around and get lost in the big bin of a regular refrigerator freezer. You can easily see what you have. The electrician who added an outlet for us asked where to get one for himself. And the packaging was unique--the bottom of the outside box was taped to the rest of the box, making unpacking a breeze for someone who is just over 5 feet and hates wrestling packing boxes. And the foam insulation to protect it was attached to the inside of the box--again, making unpacking and recycling easy. Shipping, usually $2.95, was a special for $1 and it came in 4 days! Compare that to the $70-$170 shipping charges other vendors wanted. This was perhaps the best Overstock purchase we have made.
Purchased for child who went to college and had to share 1 refrigerator with 3 room mates. Paired it with a mini refrigerator and it was well worth it and provided the extra space needed for the budget conscious college student. After the second child is thru with it, will use in the garage at home for some extra freezer space that is sometimes needed when family comes to visit.
Good little freezer although it needs defrosting on an almost constant basis. Keeps food frozen, run quietly, unobstrusive. Delivery by UPS was a nightmare, as they dumped it in my carport upside down and the driver wouldn't stop to talk to me.
I have had this freezer for a little over a month. Easy to unpack and set up. Got cold fast and stayed cold. I have it in my pantry under desktop. I like that it has removable drawers/baskets rather than shelves but wish bottom had a solid insert, as we I put bagged freezer meal (chili) in there unfrozen it sinks around the basket and if I don't position right it can interfere with drawer/basket below. Bottom basket/drawer is half as deep as the rest due to the freezer engine being behind there, so while appears to be nice deep drawer top to bottom back to front it is shallow. I didn't give excellent/5 stars as temperature control location SUCKS, it is on lower back of the unit. The lock location also sucks as it is at the bottom of the door so my husband refuses to bend down to lock and whines about me locking it. Overstock had the best price I found at time of purchase. As long as it last many years then I will saw the price is fair.
had a top loader previously and it was always breaking my back. do not get me wrong this is not a huge freezer, probably get more room in the top loader. but it is compact.so, so quiet! freezes great, immediately and in my tiny kitchen gives me exactly what I need .LOVE LOVE the pull out drawers. I am a single widow with a live in "hungry' SON AND A NEARBY DROP IN Daughter
I make a lot of green smoothies, etc., and my freezer was getting a little chaotic with bags of frozen ingredients, and it was driving my engineer husband crazy! We got this freezer for me as a birthday present after I searched around for one that was compact enough to fit in a vacant spot at the end of our cabinets. I LOVE it! I think my husband was doubtful about it's usefulness, since it was "only 3 cubic feet" -- he was envisioning a larger chest freezer. It is absolutely perfect for my needs. It has four levels of removable baskets that swallow up a very impressive amount of food, and the slide-out baskets are very convenient for organizing things and you don't have to worry about creating a deep frozen abyss of forgotten items you have to dig through. Our kitchen is somewhat open to our family room, so I had some concerns about whether it would be loud. When I first fired it up, I was worried, because there was a quite, but high-pitched tone coming from it, but that must have just been a function of the initial cooling phase. After starting it at level 6 of 6 for the initial cool-down, I've backed it off to 3 and it had no problem freezing a bowl of water, so I've loaded it up (with plenty of room to spare) and it's been great. It'll click on for a little after I've opened it, but other than that, I don't notice it running. It does have a lock on the bottom of it, but I tried using that the other day when my three-year-old felt he could help himself to ice cream, and it didn't really seem to engage properly -- it's just a rod that slips down into a bracket with a hole in it at the base of the unit, and it seemed like it was slipping out of there. I didn't mess around with it to see if I could adjust it so it worked better because I don't plan on using it. LOVE this little freezer -- exactly what I wanted. Thanks Overstock and other reviewers!

I was originally aprehensive about buying a large electrical item online. However, after making the decision, I was quite pleased that I did. The freezer is exactly what we needed to store extra items found on sale and to keep extra things we enjoy, like ice cream, on hand. The only complaint, although minor, is that the door is hard to open and causes the freezer to slide on my tile floor. However, I put some rubber grip under the front legs and that helped immensely.
