I have a similar setup. Nothing digital though. I like it except when it gets humid here, we get a lot of water condensing on the walls and puddling on the bottom. Good thing there is a drain. If you are used to the dryness of modern refrigerators this may take some getting used to. And ours uses so little AC that it is ridicules. I don't remember the numbers on ours from this last summer, but it was impressive. And we have ours sitting in a dark blue cargo trailer here in NE TX. We had highs last summer of 113 F. And it used little electricity and never had trouble.

I was wondering if anyone here has been using this type of frig and what they think about it's daily use/convenience...
I didn't click on the link but if it's the one where you make a frig out of a chest freezer using a beer cooler thermostat that turns the freezer off and on, yes I did that.
I have to say, it was kind of a drag. It's just much harder to find things/organize a chest freezer than a regular frig. I haven't done the math on this but it seemed better to have a small chest freezer to freeze blocks of ice and then stick the ice in the fridge section of my 12V sunfrost which doesn't ever seem to get cooler than a not so safe 50. Not sure what the problem is but it's at least 15 years old (but it never did a great job of keeping things cold). The (incredibly) small freezer does work fine.
ATM, I have a cooler in my mud room which I'm using instead of a fridge.
