#2- You buy it, you bolt it on, your good to go. Most people don't want to risk their components against something like a slush box setup, which imo is not very efficient.
#3- Less likely to see condensation, less insulation measures to be taken.
#4- You'll see amazing results for the price, and very good temperatures. -28.5C? Thats nice, now factor in the Hassle, taxes, labor in assembly, testing, etc.. Same situation with home-built Phase-change systems, and THEN its even worse (You have to know what your doing, have the right equipment, etc..).
I hope you see what im getting at here..
