Default Is this a good deal?

It seems kind of high to me. I have been wanting to get into kegging but don't really want to spend the money unless the right deal comes along. I don't really know a lot about so I am not sure what I would be spending.

No, that is not a good deal. Looks like it holds only 1 keg. Even if it held 2 it wouldn't be a good deal.

I don't like buying HomeBrew equipment from people who 'Love Homebrewing'. There is a reason that guy is upgrading.

Agreed. Not a good deal. You'd be better off buying a kegging setup from kegconnection.com, Rebel Brewer or the like and then finding an old fridge/chest freezer for sale on CL.

I would stay away...i bought my 2nd kegerator on craigslist for $175...it fit 2 kegs and the guy gave me 2 tanks. You def want one that handles 2 kegs so you can get a dual draft tower...and before you know you'll be buying another so you can have 4 on tap!
