Pros: Works just like described. Have this ice maker in my outdoor kitchen unit for barbeque or pool partys and I never run out of ice. Start one hour before you expect to need ice and you will have plenty.
Cons: Would be nice if it came with an external water connection. Made an internal modification to hook a water line to unit.
Cons: Opened it for Christmas. It would not work. Thought I was going to have to send it back. as I was packing it I got the thought to tap the water pump with something, I did and it has worked ever sence.
