MB40V (remote compressor) is rated 4.666666666666667 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My second Engel unit We bought a portable unit to supplement the freezer storage on our sail boat. It has always worked like a champ. When the built in unit that came with the boat failed I bought the MB40V as a similar sized replacement. The remote compressor feature made the installation much easier! The final installation looks no different than the original from the cabin. It's just quieter. It's just more electrically efficient! The control is better and it has a light. That seems like a small thing but not having to turn on cabin lights to grab a little ice is a good touch. Now if my refrigerator would just go ahead and fail I can have an all Engel boat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and Efficient I bought mine to install into existing countertop. It fit well and was easy to install. I added a computer fan to ventilate the compressor compartment and a cutting board as the lid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect For the Sailboat Retrofit I ordered this Drop In unit and received it within a day of the expected delivery date. It was shipped to me at no extra charge, It was delivered in excellent shape but has not been completely tested yet. It will replace a very old unit in my sailboat. The construction looks great, and the fit and finish of the top and interior look perfect.
