I actually contacted Massimo for that exact question. According to the reply from Massimo and the supporting documents, HuaJun compressor is actually a LG Joint Venture factory, and it was said it's the same compressor. BTW, I don't think Costco and Massimo website did advertise the cooler as having LG Compressor, but just mentioned LG somewhere...550 5-star reviews, 120 4-star and only 42 lesser reviews.
Maybe member only? I didn't buy one.
From a 1-star review:
"Costco and Massimo website advertise the cooler as having a LG Compressor but I can see from the vent of the cooler that I got that the compressor is a HuaJun ZH25G."
And I took it back...Too good of a deal now that I’m in the market for a fridge. Pulled the trigger
And I took it back...
Could not see a way to strap the thing down. Cooled, froze water like it should but what’s going to keep it from falling over or becoming a missile aimed at the back of my head if we come to a quick stop?
