Default CO2 in or out of keezer?

In the early buying/researching phase of building my first keezer.... I've read good and bad, or at least varying opinions about putting the CO2 tank in the keezer versus out. What's the general consensus? Pros and cons of both?

no difference really as far as I know, I keep it inside for the ease. But then again, maybe I should be corrected here.

Funny you bring this up as I was thinking the same. I will now have to put mine outside due to space constraints. I just checked the MSDS for Co2, and it said the maximum temperature you can store it at is 125º, just in case anyone was wondering.
