Don't know of its been mentioned here or not, but I have been eyeing the frigidaire model available at my local Lowes for $499. Says it gets to 33F.

That is a free standing fridge, you can't install it like we did with ours. That is the trick, to find one meant for under countertop install that also gets cold. Install fridges will have front facing exhaust vents.

Hmmmm. The manual states 2.0" around the sides and back. That is doable in my situation. I may buy it and try it and report back. If it works and gets that cold it is a good deal.

My LED light just failed (again). I emailed Magic Chef tech support, hoping they will send me another replacement light assembly. So much for LED's lasting 10's of thousands of hours...

That is a pretty fridge, pricey too but I bet it will work well for you. Magic Chef said I was out of warranty but since it was an already replaced part that failed, they are going to give me a free replacement, I only pay shipping. I am happy with that customer support.

I have the same issue with wanting to keep beer really cold. Currently using a 20 year old Kenmore mini that has been a trooper (stays at around 25F, which is about as cold as beer can go before freezing), but redoing kitchen and looking for undercounter solution, preferably front vented, but could give breathing space for traditional back venting fridge. Looking at these:
