Yes. We were originally leaning towards a Dometic or Edgestar because both brands are cheaper. However, we read several reports of them failing after one to two years (Dometic) or using too much power (Edgestar).
We paid more for the Engel because we are full time users. When/if we stop sailing we will end up in Queensland
where we can make good use of a good 12v fridge.
