Default kegerator

I am working on my kegerator and I have the CO2 done (three way manifold)
now I am looking for ideas for the taps. What do you think of Perlick and the Vent-Matic both SS. I will use 7' of 3/16 line for all three taps. The kegerator should fit six cornys (with some mods to the inside of the door).
thanks for any input.

I know this is about the faucets but you also mentioned the inside of the fridge. With my old fridge I used a sheet of white board material which I purchased from Lowe's on the cheap. Here is a picture of my fridge with the white board installed, made a big difference in the space inside and shouldn't change the efficiency of the fridge either.



Another plus is it allows you to write the details of each tap (if you have more than one) on the inside of the fridge.

What is the difference between the Shirron/Perlick faucets and the regular cheaper faucets? I know that materials are probably different but the the cheapy ones come in stainless as well. What does forward sealing mean exactly?

The 12 pack of "Big K" Soda might have been a big clue to the fact that I am generally really poor and in college. The Bud in the fridge is not mine but either a roommates or someone who left it behind at a party. Being a MN native I generally go and pick up a case of Grain Belt Premo.
