Horrible experience with Harris freezers bought in late '80s that after
semi-annual major repairs were retired after about 5 or 6 years of use.

I heard that Revco bought Harris - I'm not sure when. I would be very
suspicious that they were mechanically the same. I don't know why
Revco would bother to keep the name. If Honda bought Yugo, would they
keep the Yugo name if the quality was brought up to the level of Honda?

Many people here use Revco and are happy with them. In my department, we
have mostly Forma, and are also very happy with them. We have 15 year old
Formas that are still running well.
