This freezer fits perfectly in my garage.
Storage is deep, sliding basket is good for small packages like hot dogs and butter and no problems accessing freezer compartment.
We checked it over for dings and dents and behold!

I looked around for a medium sized freezer and the price was at least 50 bucks less than I could find locally. We have been replacing less efficient items in our home. I was very pleased that the yearly cost is only 29.00/yr on the energy guide. Since our electrical cost is just above a nickle rather than $10.65 national average, a dollar a month sounds thrifty to me.

This is the second Danby appliance we own. The other is a dishwasher and 4 years old. Like the freezer it is ultra efficient. Both do match the lines and curves (of the Designer Series) if they happen to be in the same space. Ours are not, but might be important for some.

One thing I was impressed with was the packaging. The foam on the sides was curved (fitted) to prevent shipping damage. The outside box had seen some use. The freezer was in absolutely perfect condition. I did carefully inspect it! Living down the road from the geographical center of North America, the freezer put on a few miles ;~) and was shipped vertical on our UPS truck!

If you are considering a freezer, a chest style is the way to go for energy savings. On an upright, the cold flows out every time you open the door. Not so with a chest style. Cold does not go uphill. Hot moist air does not flow downhill so frost formation is very minimal. No need for "frost-free". Just defrost once a year. That's about the time to find all that stuff that has been there too long anyway!

Prices of food have been jumping up and down in our local area. I have been using a freezer to help with our budget. Most people do not know that cheese and milk can be frozen. We pick them up when on sale. No need for a club membership and often cheaper if you shop right. Same for meat, veggies, ice cream, pizza and the standard freezer stockpile.

I first checked with Consumer Reports to get an idea of which chest freezer brands passed the marks on:
- energy efficiency and
- consistency throughout the freezer for temperature / temperature control / temperature performance
Danby stood out in a class of it's own and I was shocked at how many didn't do as well.

Delivery was on time and they even brought it up the stairs and into my apartment! (no curb-side nonsense!)
It was a breeze to unpack and there were no dents or dings. It was in excellent condition.
The basket and side compartment are convenient.
The chest is rather deep.
There are two wheels on the back and two rubbers on the front for ease of movement and stability.
A drain hole in the bottom
A light indicator on the right front bottom corner so you know if the power is on or off
Temperature control knob is easy to use, but simplistic (no degree's stated)
No internal light, but that isn't a problem for me.
If you need more dividers, you can use just about anything or visit home depot and buy some.

**I would have preferred the power-on light and the temperature control knob on the upper right corner, but I understand that they are placed on the bottom corner b/c that is where the motor is.**

So.. why did I deduct a star? *sigh* It's hard to say this because I do like the freezer very much, but honesty is important.

I have never purchased such a large item anywhere online before, but the fairly large freezer was packaged extremely well and delivered by UPS. As advertised, it certainly has ample room, and even though it is a chest freezer, the two included baskets make life a lot easier than otherwise. Nevertheless, it is the perfect size even if the baskets were not included: two times now, I have had to dig to the bottom for buried items, and, except for cold hands, it is really not bad of a task.

It was priced comparably that could be purchased locally, and with free SuperSaver shipping and no tax, it was a steal, especially since it was delivered right through our front door and into the living room where it is now.

Other than that what can I say? It hasn't stopped running since when I first plugged it in two months ago, but also an important point: it is absolutely quiet. We keep it in the living room where we always sit and can't hear anything at all: the small green light on the bottom front tells us that it's still on the job!

We just bought this at a local warehouse club (rhymes with Bosco) for one-eighty. We hadn't shopped for a freezer at any store until the day we purchased this, so it was really the first time looking at a freezer to purchase. We are frequently running out of room in the freezer section of our refrigerator so we thought it was time to spring for more room. I thought maybe a 10 to 13 cu. ft. model would be appropriate, but for just 2 people, this 7 cu ft model is more than sufficient - it's larger than we expected. The unit is about 120 pounds so be prepared for moving something of this weight - 2 people will be needed to move/load/unload/position this unit.

As others have said, the unit is very quiet, in fact I don't know if it even makes noise! I thought I could hear it humming and then realized the hum was coming from the overhead fluorescent lights!
The unit comes with a partitioned section - and the partition can be easily removed if necessary, as well as a decent sized removable wire basket. My wife and I both thought a 2nd basket would be nice - we're going to see if we can find something that will work. The power light on the front is a nice visual to ensure the unit is powered on.

The main reason I wanted to write this review is to warn people to check the temperature with a thermometer. The instructions state to put the adjustable thermostat to the max position (fully clockwise) initially to cool it down quickly, and then readjust the dial to the center position (12 o'clock) for normal running. There are no indications on what setting will provide what level of cooling, but after we had left it in the mid-position for 24 hours, I checked the temperature with a Fluke digital thermometer.
