Ticks all the marketing boxes, but a piece of junk!
After reading the reviews I was a little apprehensive in purchasing this fridge, after I have used Engel fridges in the past.
Alarm bell's started to ring when after a couple of months in I could hear a rattle from the compressor area.

Did Not Live Up To Expectation
Paid around $1000 and The idea is perfect - a fridge compartment for the drinks and a freezer compartment for the meat. Unfortunately the Dual Zone 72ltr did not actually work on it's maiden voyage on 12v. Had tested prior on 240v mains and it got below zero - so trusting a brand new product assumed it was a good thing. 3 issues I had were: did not work at all on 12v - Freezer would not get below 8 deg Celsius on 240v - the temp display was unable to be read after about 3 days continuous use. I may have been unlucky with that particular one so ...try your luck if you will. New plan of attack - looking at 2 x 38 ltr competitors fridge - will cost about $600 extra but will have a backup if one decides to play up. NOTE: Companion came good with a full refund - Freddy's Fishing (Mackay) were terrible with their customer service and follow up. Happy to discuss further with Freddy's upper management if not happy with this review as could not find a complaints number on their website.
