You should be able to fit at least two cornies in there. Probably two 5 gallon and maybe a 3 gallon on the hump.

It will need a new tower with two or three taps. Adding a splitter onto the gas line is a no brainer.

Not to horrible a price, I guess. Best bet would be to wait until after the holidays. If they have one in the store, they will sell it cheap.

Read the reviews and they look terrible.

I have been actively shopping for a kegerator myself. Walmart has one at $297.

The model numbers of the Home Depot one and the Walmart one are the same (KRS-2100), and the reviews on both sites are definitely a turn off.

Would probably be better to get the $117 Walmart Igloo fridge and build your own.

I bought a Danby with the SS door for 339, I added longer serving line and changed the hook ups to the screw on type so I can swap between homebrew kegs and commercial with ease! Good buy.

I want to upgrade the faucet also lol

$300??? For that price most people should be able to get a large chest freezer or fridge off of CL and convert it into a 3-6 tap (corny kegs) kegerator. I could only see this as being a good deal if you have zero skills with basic tools or need a slightly smaller footprint.

My last kegorator I had over 700 into it :0 and the freezer was free lol. I vowed next one would be turn key with minor upgrades and would be kept in the house vice the garage. I would bet you could not build one for cheaper (than 300) using new parts. I would bet if you shopped smart you could ring in right at 300 minus labor.

It looks like the older version was better than the current one. The recent reviews are all bad (one star for the 2012 reviews). I agree that you can probably build a better system for $300 (without kegs) without much effort.

BTW, anyone else notice it comes with a 2.5# CO2 tank? Plus the cheap faucet doesn't help. Not to mention it doesn't say what the tower is made from (chrome plated metal or plastic?)...

I actually have that one, add the tax and you got it for the same price I did. No complaints here. I didn't buy it from home depot but my brother in law and I both have them. It took me about 10 minutes to convert it to corny. The only problem is it comes with a smaller gas tank and a crappy gas line. No problem though go to your local brewing supply store and they could help, they usually have the parts in stock to change it over, extra gas lines, and a little bigger gas tank.
