Default Question about converted pin lock to ball lock kegs

Cornykeg.com sells converted coca cola pin lock kegs. they are a bit shorter and wider than standard ball lock kegs and about $40.00 cheaper than ball lock kegs sold by my local HBS. So aside from that has anyone bought these kegs from them? Issues, pros/cons? any information is appreciated. Thanks.

I use them, they're fine. However, I have never used Pepsi ball locks, so I don't have a comparison. Mine came pretty clean, new poppets, no leaks.

Other than that, most of Cornykeg.com's conversion don't have the pull ring pressure relief valve, if you are into that.

I prefer ball lock. I think it comes to personal preference.

I have two that I bought from cornykeg and two regular ball locks. No real difference besides the dimensions and the keg lid.

I've bought 8-9 from them. Never had a problem and the prices are pretty nice.
