So I recently came across $100 and am now in the market for either a chest freezer or mini fridge. What way do you guys think I should go for my 5 gallon keging system. Pros? Cons. Best way to set either system up? Thanks in advance.

Just make sure you can fit what you want in it. (e.g. # of cornies you want in there.)
