Pros and Cons

Many people question why anyone would buy the "standard" (non-combi) version - the MT45FP - which only has a single compartment, and runs as EITHER a fridge OR a freezer - instead of this "combi" version which gives you the flexibility of the removable divider. 

There is a big difference in the location of the cooling plate inside each unit. The standard unit has the cooling plate wrapped around the entirety of the interior compartment. This gives you really consistent cooling. When the digital readout says 4°, you know the entire compartment is running at this temp.

This combi unit, has a cooling plate about half that, which wraps around 3 sides of the freezer section. The other half of the fridge doesn't have any cooling plate. Therefore, there is always a considerable discrepancy in temperature from one end of the compartment to the other. 

With the divider in, the discrepancy is larger - around 8° degrees. With the divider out, it is lower - somewhere around 4°. So when the digital readout says -5°, the FREEZER side is running at approximately this temp, but the FRIDGE side is running at about 3° with the divider in, or +1° with the divider out..

There are two smaller baskets in this combi unit, where the standard unit has one basket. This can be a bit limiting if you want to put larger items in the fridge. BUT... you can purchase a replacement inner basket from the standard unit, and it will fit in this combi unit.

Don't expect household like performance where the freezer freezes everything, and the fridge just remains at fridge temperatures. There is a gray area in between with these combi units  - same goes for all other brands too (Evakool/Waeco etc) - with the exception being the Engel 60L and 80L combi units - because they have fixed dividers with fans in them.

The combi unit will tend to take more power to run, which is a consideration if running from a battery. This is due to the fact that it is likely to be running at lower temperatures (ie you are running a freezer not just a fridge).

Good or Bad? This depends on what you want - flexibility vs consistency. Given that 40L units are really only for shorter trips, do you really need to freeze food, or will a fridge suffice?
