Default fermentation chamber

What is better to use for a fermentation chamber -- a chest freezer or a fridge or are both comparable?? Want to lager but doing it in my keezer with my kegged beer will raise the temp of it up too much. help please, doc

I went with a stand up fridge because it is easier to access the beer. Loading carboys and other fermenters in and out of chest freezers is not easy. Also, with my setup, I can crash cool, and siphon without moving my fermenter and kicking up trub.
