Well theirs doesn't have a line run down the middle, that's probably the only difference. Not sure I'd pay a boatload of cash extra just for not that line. Besides, dunno what 85 dollar will buy you, but 85 euro will get you a used fridge in very good condition off ebay and such around here.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Gah! You're killin me!   Roll Eyes  I see LOTS of differences!  Mine wraps all the way around the doors and covers the sides, there's almost no fridge showing.  Wink   I imagine there's is a bit more durable, but mine is so cheap you could fix it dozens of times before spending $80 more dollars.  I have no idea what a decent used fridge costs, but I bet it would be closer to a few hundred dollars; the white ones would be the cheapest.

Seriously? If you've got a car big enough to pick one up, you can get very decent ones starting from 40 euro's here (in this size; smaller ones are much more expensive). People move and can't fit them in their cars...

Totally.  Most Americans know someone with a pickup truck.  Wink  And you can rent a truck pretty cheaply for a couple of hours.  The last time I shopped for a fridge it was new, stainless steel, and freezer on bottom (almost all fridges are fridge/freezer combos) and mine was too crazily priced at about $900, delivered and installed.  I did some research into quality factors when choosing, though and the SS and freezer config are ones that cost more, so I guess I don't really have my finger on the pulse of used ridge prices, but I know when we bought used SS stove and dishwasher last year they were $275 and $125, respectively.  I assume a fridge would be about the same or more than the stove.

Heh. The only thing you won't be able to get nearly for free here is a decent washing machine for your laundry.

Everything else you can get for free or nearly for free, except it'll look horribly dated (but you can paint that!), like this dishwasher or this dishwasher. When my mom and stepdad split some 5 years ago, my mom picked up an identical dishwasher to the last one shown, which was also identical to the one they had, up for I think 25 euro. Still works.

Of course, you're going to have to uninstall, load, transport and unload it yourself for that price.

One of the reasons to love your acquainted "white van driver"...
