Fridge options

Has anyone on the forum gone to a 12-volt compressor fridge for a trailer/motorhome? I'm talking about units like the ones here:

I'm seriously considering one of these for my Argosy. My original Dometic is getting weak and cools poorly in warm weather. The compressor-style should work consistently in any weather. And I suspect they'll cool down more quickly, too. Plus, they require no external vents and no periodic burner cleaning.

Comments, personal experiences, advice?

Norcold makes a line of refers like that too. 120v/12v Lots of boaters use them so there is not propane needed, just solar. The only drawback is that if you are going to boondock for a while you will need to run the genset every day or so due to the amperage draw when running. The Norcolds draw in the 3-5 amp DC range depending on size.
