Pros: Great workmanship Cheap price compared to others Extremely good communication by Dave
Cons: None that I can see so far
Recommended? NoDave answered all my questions, worked with me on free shipping and threw in a free thermometer. Some people may be leery of sending a check to pay (no PayPal or credit card options to keep cost down for distributor) but it is still all through the eBay umbrella and he has outstanding reviews and testimonials, worry not.
Well worth it and highly recommended

Pros: Easy to dumb Crap out, 1/2" valves make for quick kegging, easy to clean and santize.
Recommended? Yes$299 on ebay, I paid $150 on craigslist
I love this my conical, I am currently looking for another one. Its cleans great with Starsan, its not to heavy to move around, seals good, makes filling the keg easy and quick. I dont have to rack to secondary, all I do now is take off the air lock, put a little bowl under the bottom value and open it slowly until mostly liquid comes on, then close the valvue and replace the air lock. Now i am into my secondary fermentation.
Pros: Stainless steel with a thermometer for a good price.
Recommended? YesBought in Sep. of 2009 from Homebrewhousediscount on ebay. Has worked well for over 15 batches. Dave sent me extra lid gaskets for no charge. It is sturdy and dependable, the ball valves and the overall fit and finish are good.
Note this was before the tri-clamp craze and the fittings are threaded. Not really that hard to disassemble and clean. Harvesting yeast from the bottom port or repitching on a yeast cake have worked really well.
Price did not include shipping, that was another $70.
Note to Dobo, you dropped your review under the wrong vendor. Homebrewhousediscount on ebay is different than Stout Tanks and Kettles.

Pros: SS Conical with tri-clamp sanitary fittings, thermowell and butterfly valves (1.5" dump, 1" racking)
Cons: none (you might have to wait a bit to get one, I lucked out)
Recommended? YesGot my conical from Stout Tanks and Kettles (http://conical-fermenter.com), and I am very pleased! John was great to work with, and I would recommend his conicals even if it means waiting for one (yes, they are made in China, so the time to fill orders can be long if he doesn't have in stock what you want, but the quality of the materials and welds are top notch). What you get for the price is unmatched by any other product, and what are typically expensive upgrades on others, come standard. The upgrade to butterfly valves is well worth it, and shipping is very reasonable given the size and weight of the item (I think it cost a little under $30 to have mine delivered).

Pros: Easy to extract yeast cake without transferring to a secondary Easy to transfer to bottle or keg since it doesn't need to be transferred to bottling bucket Looks Impressive Don't have to worry about light skunking your beer
Cons: Temperature control is not as easy as with a carboy since you can't easily stick it in a tub of water A little pricey. It was nice to get this as a gift, but if I was spending the money, this is not the direction I would have went
Recommended? YesNot a whole lot to say that isn't listed above. In summary, I am very happy with this product, but for the price, there are a lot of other things I would upgrade before moving to this.
