I bought this fridge for my son's "man cave". It's a little room so the small size is perfect. His previous dorm fridge was bulky with a freezer section that required constant messy defrosting. The Edgestar keeps soda cold as well as cheese and snacks with no mess. The best thing about it is the interior design. The flat metal racks instead of the more common curved ones allow full use of the space. The glass front door and black surround give it a modern, clean appearance. There are definitely cheaper beverage fridges at the big box stores but this one was worth the price for the features.
