For that price I expect a chinese kid to live in the back and run to the store and buy milk when it's out.
I remember The RoadWarrior..To understand who he was, you have to go back to another time..the world was powered by the black fuel & the desert sprouted great cities..Gone now, swept away..two mighty warrior tribes went to war & touched off a blaze which engulfed them all. Without fuel, they were nothing..thundering machines sputtered & stopped..Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice
SoCal Edison has been offering something like this for years. For their rebate, you turn in your old, working fridge for a new energy star unit.
Frankly, I wish I could still get by with my old brown 1970 fridge that had a freezer compartment inside the fridge. I loved it. Kept my beer nice and cold. Kept my steaks like I wanted them until I cooked them. My electric bill ran about $15.00 per month. Only cost me $60 used, 10 years old. Used it for several years, until my wife moved in. She hated it, made me spend somewhere between $500-600 for a floor model new unit from Monkie Wards. At least I was able to sell my old one to someone else for $75.00.

I just want to use outside air.
Summer: blow the heat from the compressor and evaporator out side.
Winter: Direct air-to-air heat exchange, fan only, no compressor needed when it's sub zero.
I recall there were articles by someone that treaked the thermostat on a chest freezer so that it would maintain just above freezing temp range and easily made a very efficient top-open fridge.
