This freezer has been really good so far, I have had it about 9 months or so and it has held up nicely. We keep it relatively full at times and it has really helped out a lot. We do keep it in our kitchen near our main fridge for easy access. I can say it is very durable as I have a 5 year old son who has a tendency to climb things and he has climbed this freezer quite a bit since bringing it home and it has held up great. It does ding easily so that can be a bummer, but that's nothing to be worried about. The thing that I do not care for is the chest part of it. This is my first freezer I have ever purchased on my own and I wish I would have gone with an upright. It can get quite annoying stacking food in the freezer and a week later go to search for dinner and it be at the way bottom. I am about 5' 7" and it I feel like I am nearly diving into the freezer just to get to the bottom. So my next freezer purchase will definitely be an upright. So as a caution to a new freezer buyer, go to a friends house that has one already and test it out yourself before making your purchase. But overall, it has held up great and I have not had an issue with it yet. My light bill has barely moved since buying it as well, so it is energy efficient. Capacity Holds a ton of food if you organize it well. Durability very durable Design Do not care for the chest freezers, but it is a good design.
