Maybe, but that seems overly sophisticated for a $200 minifridge. I've seen $1500 high end side by sides have that, but never in anything less. I think you're overestimating the amount of engineering Oster put in to this product.
@ Inferno: Yeah I've heard some less than stellar things myself, but now that it's up and running again things seem to be going well with it. We'll just see if it lasts, I suppose. There's a number of guys on this forum who've had good luck with them, so only time will tell.
