I just bought a Kegco K199B-2 Dual Faucet kegerator and I love it. Gets real cold and pours great. If you are buying it from Beverage Factory the Kegco is a few bucks cheaper.

I was bending over my bucket aerating my batch once and my glasses fell off into the bucket and I reached in with my bare hands and plucked them out. Beer turned out great, I called it Bifocal Ale.
