If you look closely at them, they are all the same except for the name on the front.

I also have the Igloo from Sam's. 3 years..no problem! Important to always pull the plug to drain! Never empty by turning upside down! I also run vinegar water through it periodically since I do not use bottled water.

We have the Dometic HZB-15S. We have been using it for over 4 yrs and has been trouble free. We take it with us in in our Coach and use it at home when needed. Was $199 which is a little pricey but would buy another one as it has worked so well for us. Good luck.

Thread a little dated. But info still good. I'm also in the market for one of these, and came across this site. Might help in making a decision.

This thing ROCKS! I only had to buy 2 bags of ice while we were out over the course of 7 trips, both due to ice melting while we were driving to our destinations. Once the cooler has ice in it, this thing keeps very well....20+ pounds per day in 80 plus degree weather, more if its cooler. On my last trip, it was only about 60 degrees outside, and I didn't even start putting ice in the cooler until I started making it....by the next day, the cooler was full. Plus, for $10, they warrantied it for 3 years. One of my best purchases ever!

My moms igloo is on its 3rd year and ours is at 18 months. Best $95 I have ever spent at Sam's.

I want to find one that you don't need a water reservoir. I would like one that hooks up to an outside water source through a hose bib and can hold 3-5 lbs of ice.

Thanks for the suggestions but am looking for a counter top model like this that has outside hookup.

I don't THINK they make a self filling portable unit. Could be wrong. You could buy a small freezer and add an ice maker kit to it. Limitation to that is finding a kit small enough to go in freezer....
