First one was a dud out of the box. Just didn’t cool at all. EdgeStar support said it was missing coolant. Took them about 2 full weeks to turn around the replacement. They paid all replacement shipping via printed return label. It was a new serial number, not a repair of my old one, and it looked new.
I am very satisfied now with this second unit and would definitely recommend it.
The look is very nice. The glass is great. The blue light is great.
The size is great, very deep. Fit my under-the-bar-cabinet-slot really well. A little shorter than the broken down old “Scotsman” that was in there but nothing a couple 2x4’s didn’t fix.
Sure am glad to have found something in a more reasonable price range… I’m sure the Scotsman stuff must last forever but at upwards of $2k, not on my kids’ college budget 🙂
Cooling has been spot on for the 2 months I’ve had it so far <knock wood>.
“EdgeStar 84” (OBR900SS) for $750 if you want outdoor certified cooling capability… they indicate that a unit should be specifically designed to run outdoors or it will burn itself out quickly running non stop… that one would look great next to a hot tub 🙂
