Default B-Day Kegerator??

My wife asked me what I want for my birthday, so I suggested a dual-tap kegerator (we'll see if it'll fly). I've been bottling for years, so the idea of kegging seems pretty enticing. Instead of taking a guess on which dual kegerator might be best, I'd rather stand on the backs of giants, and draw from this forum's vast breadth of knowledge. A "plug and play" pre-fab unit is preferable over building my own since I have enough projects going on. If you were in my shoes, which unit would you choose?

I've built my own, but I also have a store bought. Are you looking for cheap, or high quality? I own a danby chill-n-tap that I upgraded to a 3 tap tower and I love it.

I was in the same dilemma back in March. I did a ton of research and looked around. I called the manufacturers and bothered them trying to get a better deal. Here is what I got, and I LOVE it. it will actually hold 3 cornies plus a few bombers and a six pack if positioned correctly. I put two on tap and have a third in there either cold conditioning or on a cobra tap, until I can get an extension for the top of the tower and add a third.

You can look on the websites and everything, but buying it from Ebay with the buy it now feature is the cheapest with shipping and everything...

Good luck and congrats!
