Why would anyone buy this? 3cuft? It won't hold crap and it's twice what a large one cost.

I guess what they are claiming as their value-add is the pull-out baskets? That's something, but not worth the $100 premium they're asking over other comparable freezers.

When the description says "Manual defrost", does that mean this is like 30 years ago, when you periodically had to empty out your freezer to get rid of the frost that had accumulated? Umm ... no thanks.

I've always been a fan of Moonpencilcity appliances, but I heard that Sunpentown have taken the lead!

Automatic defrost is not without its disadvantages - namely the regularly-cycling 300-700 watt heating element, bringing your freezer briefly above freezing, then refreezing everything, so all your food is "freezer burned" and filled with ice crystals after just a few months.

Auto defrost also appears to be pretty rare on freezers this size.

The front page of Home.Woot has a new item and claims that this freezer sold out ... which it did not. I'm slightly confused.

We had the wrong blurb there. We've changed it to the correct one now.
