The Danby DKC5811BSL 5.8 cu ft kegerator is a very good unit for the price. Plus it is American made! That is not the case for the majority of inexpensive kegerators out there. That being said, since this is an inexpensive model there is good and bad. First let's go with the good: A 5lb aluminum CO2 tank, dual gage regulator showing tank pressure and beer line pressure, enough room to hold two 1/6 kegs without a problem, no problems holding temperature of the keg at 36 degrees, externally mounted CO2 tank to extend the refill time of your CO2, includes a good D type coupler to connect the keg, it looks good. Now for the bad: This is a cold plate refrigerator, so the temperature is constantly fluctuating and a circulation fan is needed (I used a 120mm computer fan with 4 screws to hold up off of bottom and an old 6v cell phone charger to power with the line run through the same hole as CO2 line), Some type of tower cooler is needed otherwise your first beer poured will be foam if sitting unused for a while (I used an old 3 inch computer fan I mounted to a box that I laid in the bottom of kegerator with hose going up into tower), beer line is only 5ft long…which is not a problem for most beers but light beers requiring higher pressures (greater than say 12psi) may cause foam because of speed of flow…a longer beer line would solve that, the pressure CO2 line comes with plastic clamps…need to replace with metal to ensure no CO2 leaks, the 17 inch ¼ or ½ oversized coors/miller kegs do not fit (kegerator is only 16¾ inches deep). Besides a couple of these small modifications needed it is a very good kegerator!

I have had this for a year now, I had to take the first one back after 45 days as it stopped working. Keeps the beer cold which is great. It is a bit noisy as we have it in the house. It also leeks a little water and with wood floors it does damage. Price is about half of a really nice one, this was my first kegerator but when I replace this one I'll spend the extra money on a better one.

Love this thing
By Big Dog
from Pittsburgh, PA, United States
Received the kegerator in a timely manner, with no damage. Easy to assemble and set up. Easily holds 1/4 or 1/2 kegs. After initial cool down I was serving cold tasty beer to all my friends. Only thing that can be improved is the thermostat, should include a digital instead of a dial with no actual reading. Need a separate thermometer to monitor temps.
Won this item in Anheiser Busch sweepstakes and couldn't be happier. Easy to set up and works fantastic. Quality from top to bottom!!!

We bought the Dansby as a replacement for a much more expensive unit and I will say that it has out performed the old on tremendously.

Works pretty well
By Britt Slone
The temperature varies and does not stay consistent. Tried to get it stabilized with no success The CO2 gas leaks out if the valves are left on. I have checked the fittings multiple times with no success. Keeps happening so I have to turn of the gas valves each time I draw a pint.
Really great Kegerator

The first one I ought from a big box store was junk. This Danby unit works great.
