I got one of the 7 gallon carboys for christmas, and while it's pricey, it works great. Easy to clean, no light entering, not going to shatter like glass. I also got a couple of the 2L growlers and they work great. Can be a little difficult to pour from or fill but really solid. I like the cap with the post. I can pour straight from the tap and then put it on the CO2 for a hour to re carb.
