Craigslist.com is a very good place to start. People sell them for cheap and usually work very well. Sometimes usable ones can be had for free.

I found a brand new one for about half price on eBay. It takes a while though. I was obsessively refreshing for about a month.

Are both of these gone? The 15.1 c.ft one seems to be a decent deal.

Shipping on a single item that large is going to be spendy. This is an instance where buying locally is going to be cheaper than ordering on the net.

One must be patient when looking for a deal. Keep your eyes on the paper, craigslist, etc and be patient.
