I have a 12 can version of the coke one (it doesn't say coke on it). It keeps drinks cool, as other said about 30 degrees below room temperature. Coke wasn't cold enough for me, but sweeter drinks, like Sunkist or Cherry Coke, I was ok with the coolness. As another note, I bought tiny waters to put on the top row, two columns of three. The can drinks tend to drop too high from 3 up and spew over on me. It is a pretty cool thing to have at work to avoid paying $1.50 for a bottle drink everyday. I did read that the power supply tends to have problems on the version I bought (not available on woot). Also, make sure to empty the tray of water daily. Depending on humidity, it does produce a bit of condensation. As long as you empty it every few days, you will be fine.
This is the version I purchased, similar to the 10 can dispenser.
Have you guys seen any writers around?

An option you may want to consider is something a car-powered travel cooler/warmercombined with a power inverter. Take a look at the Black & Decker TC212B.
Don't fret that it's over $100, the Rubbermaid version of this cooler is identical (except for the coloring and labels) and is 1/4 the price.
The cooler is designed to sit in your car and is big enough to cool-down a dozen cans. When I go to a con, I drag it in from the car and use the power inverter to plug the car 12V plug into a wall outlet. Keeps my beverages, leftovers, salsa, cheese, fruits, etc all nice and cool... especially since I set the room temp to 68-70.
I bought mine primary for long family road-trips, but the money I saved from just two trips to Chicago TARDIS more than paid for the whole set up.
