Looking for a front venting beverage center

Hi,

I'm looking for a high quality front venting beverage centre (for under counter application) to install in my kitchen.
Anyone have experience with a good one? I define good as not noisy and that the compressor lasts more then 2 years.
Any discounts available now?

Thanks,
Andre

Costco.ca has them for decent price. Plus if it ever fails you can return it :)

I too am looking for one, but a 15" unit

I was going to suggest True but they're probably closer to 5k.

Hate the Marvel....so bloody loud. Had them come in and look at it and it met specification. Went on line, and it is a major complaint. Never again.

Ok, so now I'm down to square one.
Can $1,000 buy me a decent undercounter refrigerator???

When I was designing my house I expected to have a beverage center and an under-counter fridge. But my research led to a similar conclusion - that the beverage centers didn't do a particularly good job of keeping things "cold", and the under-counter fridges were uber-expensive. Since I was planning from scratch, I just changed my bar thinking and put in space for a full-sized refrigerator - which at around $550 got me a freezer and icemaker, too. If your beverage selection includes things other than beer, both of those features are useful!
