I did not opt for the water cooled units. I am happy with the basic air cooled unit. If I had to do it over, I might opt for the larger box evaporator but this would mean redoing the drain tray and plumbing in the unit. I am happy with the results.
Also, I should note the parts come pre-charged so the installation is just connecting the quick-connect fittings. No charging or Freon necessary.

Mark! Did you consider to have a water cooled compressor? We have changed
the cooler and compressor in the fridge box. To a water cooled, I also build a
freezer where the dishwasher was, also water cooled. Both compressors are
cooled by circulating fresh water from the drinking water tank. Limited
corrosion no growth of barnacles. No problem to use when on the hard, and very
energy efficient. No noice from any fan. Took the water from the manual pump
outlet to the compressors.
