Default A couple Kegging Questions

Hey all, I am in the process in building a kegerator, well just getting started, but I want to use the mini fridge method, A keezer isnt really an option.

Anyways I am planning on buying cut handle kegs, and saving a few bucks to spend else where. Anyone have any reason I should be weary of these?

So i was planning on getting two of those, and finding the appropriate fridge to accommodate both.

Next question, I am planning on trying to find a fridge that will fit a 2.5 gallon keg on the hump. Anyone ever do this? I want to buy the tower, but if there really is no way to get a 2.5 gallon keg on the hump then I dont want to bother buying the extra tap.

I am planning on getting this one from adv. in home brewing. Only concern is it doesnt look like you can upgrade to perlicks?

One last question, any recommendation on a fridge? Any thoughts?

I bought some of those kegs, they seemed to be a decent deal. Be aware some of the poppets are a bit worn and you might get some of the plastic type check valves which are expensive to replace if they break. They all hold pressure well thanks to new seals and keg lube. I bought 5 of them for 180$ so I cant really complain.
I'll keep them for awhile before I upgrade to nicer kegs. I know I can at least make my money back with these.
