Getting ready to gather up supplies for chest freezer kegerator. I will have three taps. What am I looking for when buying a faucet? I have seen that there different kinds at different prices. Also does anyone know any online stores with fair prices. I want reliable faucets but don't need to go over the top. Thanks.

Perlick forward sealing faucets are the way to go. No sticking and gumming up and you should be able to get them for under $35.00.

So.... I think you guys are trying to tell me to use perlick faucets. Will do. Now where should I be looking? Also what is it that makes them better than the other brands?
