There is a BIG difference! A dorm room size refrigerator with a "zero degree freezer" operates just like mom's refrigerator freezer at home... it keeps your food frozen and safe to eat for an extended period of time. Whereas, a dorm room size refrigerator with a "separate freezer compartment" or an "internal compartment" is only for short-term food storage, a few days at most. It is best to invest in an Energy Star Qualified dorm room size refrigerator with a "Zero Degree Freezer" if you plan to keep frozen foods.
