I recently upgraded from an 8 cu ft chest freezer to a 12. By testing the old unit first, and then comparing the EPA ratings on the new ones, I got one that uses less power than the old one. Kill-a-watt testing both side-by-side shows the difference to be even greater than the rating suggested.

Saving about 30% electricity with a bigger freezer = Win!
