I didn't want to pay a huge amount of money on one of these. I also was worried to pick up the sometimes offer of refurbished. Sometimes those work out sometimes not. This provided an option and I went for it a decent price as these items go and not as heavy or big as some of it's similar sisters/brothers out there. This one is under 30 pounds and I can manage it on the go. I bought it to be able to make ice to keep our coolers in ice while camping and on the road. As it makes up to 10 pounds or more over night. Now the cube sizes aren't all that selective. And they are quite similar in size with little difference but I'm after the ice. I wish it made solid cubes but none do that I looked at anyway. Also if you are in a humid area the ice seems to melt quicker than when it's drier air. So living mostly in the Northwest this is a rare issue for us. It doesn't get a lot of use just seasonal. Also we purchased a portable freezer that Overstock sells too from Overstock because you could get the warranty. I did not buy the warranty for this item. The freezer being roughly 4 times more expensive I did. It's now 1.5 years later and no problem as of yet. We camp with others with campers so often have power to keep it making ice. Can make ice in a motel room too. And with our portable freezer we could keep ice made with this frozen for cooler giving a day or two off from need to make more. But turns out we are using the freezer more often as a fridge. Who knew. I think overall this is a nice less heavy ice maker that does the job we expect from it and so happy campers. I'd like to plug it into the car 12Volt system and need to see if that's possible at some time. It might be or might not be as they make all sorts of gadgets that allow you to do that sort of thing safely. The portable freezer came with both cords to do just that.
