Danby 4.2 cu. ft. Energy Star Upright Freezer
We have been running out of freezer space for quite some time. We grow our own food so come fall the big freezer is full with more yet to be put in it. The smaller ones just didn't offer enough space, a larger one was just too big. 4.2 cu/ft is the perfect size.
The freezer arrived on time and is as expected. After leveling it was plugged in with a thermometer inside. Checking four hours later the inside temp. was just below 0 degrees F. optimal temp for long term storage, with it set on medium . I have checked several times since, the temp. has always been the same. There is not excessive heat produced from it operating. The noise level is low. Keep in mind, opening the door, allowing warmer air from the room to get inside, will cause the freezer to come on, more so than a larger freezer.
The freezer has wheels on the back allowing for easy moving. Leveling is accomplished with adjusters on the front. Side to side may require shims if the floor is not level. Instructions are simple and easy.
If you are looking for a smaller freezer in this size range I think you will be happy with this one.

More than expected
We have been searching for a small stand up freezer for a long time. Now that we are making my son's food, we really needed to find one! This freezer is perfect for storing our meat in which means plenty of space in our regular freezer for his food and other things. This little freezer is actually a bit bigger inside than we pictured. It keeps everything as cold as it needs to be. It is white, so I am sure it will eventually get a bit dirty as it is in our basement but that is not an issue for us. We use plastic shoeboxes to help organize the meats and it fits 2 on both shelves and then there is the space in the door as well as on the bottom. Definitely worth the price! I do not find it to be too noisy at all.

Great Little Freezer
So glad I decided to buy this freezer! It is so quiet that I occasionally open the door to make sure it is working. Perfect size to store the "overflow" from our refrigerator/freezer. It moves easily on its caster wheels and does not take up that much space. As soon as we plugged it in - it worked and was cold enough to freeze food within a few hours. No problems at all. Never heard of the Danby brand before this purchase, but highly recommend now.
This is really a great little freezer!
