Saw the bad Reviews and just had to straightening it all out. The older version of this Fridge, the one with vents on the side and back with fans and also inside the unit with fans, doesn't come with a Freezer. That one uses TEC Cold/Hot plates, good for 0.5 Cubic-FT tail-gating coolers that plug into your Cig Lighters, but not really up to being a Full blown Mini-Fridge of the 1.7 or bigger sizes. It will work for a few months(if at all) at 16/7 to 24/7 of run time, after that, good luck. Basically, if you want it to last the longest, turn the Knob down as far as you feel comfortable with. The one with a big Black Pump/Compressor and freezer, plus No vents is the good one, it cools like your Full Size Kitchen fridge, just on a smaller scale. So this one makes my Soda ~30F in about an hr and makes Ice at the same time. So it should last about as long as a Full Size, assuming the Compressor/Pump has the same level of Quality in the bigger ones. Also, Yes i did own the Vented one, it worked pretty good for about 2 yrs and 3 months, 4 days...then the Bottom Cold plate gave out, so only the Top fan was pumping out cold air, my Soda only rose from 44F to 56F so it was cool, but not Cold. Ended up using it to Pre-Chill my food and drinks, drops food from 145F to 80F in about in about 2-3 hours, then i put it in the Good, Vent-less Fridge for it to go down to ~34F and stay good for days or put it in the Freezer for 28F or lower. So bottom line, if it has a Freezer and No vents on the pics on the box, grab it! If it has vents and that's all you can find and you got to get a Fridge...get the Warranty plan if you want to save a few bucks in the end. :) It is a tad bit smaller then the Vented one, since the Pump has to sit somewhere, but i will trade 30F Soda and less space over 45-55F soda and more space. :) So don't let the Negative feedback bother you, UNLESS they say it has a Freezer. Thanks.
