Default Commercial kegerator suggestion

A friend of mine is looking to buy her signifcant other a commercial kegerator for his birthday and asked me for advice. My experience in this area is restricted to homebrew rigs, and therefore I have little to offer. She wants to spend under 1k$, including a full keg of good beer. Any suggestions of good brands/vendors or which ones to avoid?

Can't speak for vendors - but BevAir makes bullet proof kegerators. Mine finally died...at 22 years of commercial service. They are expensive however for the capacity you get.

At that price you're pretty much stuck with Sanyo AFAIK. I like the True brand but they're approx 1.4k
