I recently had to buy a new fridge as the old one finally gave up the ghost after many years of sterling service.
I've got to say, buying a fridge is a minefield - there are about a million different things to take into account: efficiency, capacity, daily cost and myriad other factors. In white goods stores, the tech guys will blind you with science if you're not careful.
So what did I do? I bought one I like the look of and that fitted in with my kitchen decor. This fridge certainly looks great - it has a sleek sliver door and sides - magnetic. and a little bump at the top. No handles othe than neat little swoopy indents. It looks like one of those super computers that try to take over the world in old episodes of the Outer Limits.
Apparently it's quite efficient - as all new fridges have to be nowadays, and it does seem to draw less power than the old one as it needs to start up less often.
The downside is that it is ebagum NOISY when it does start up. When I first heard it I thought "Dear god, is someone starting a motorboat in my kitchen?" But it was just the fridge.
Anyway, had it for a wee while now - food is nice and cold, the thing doesn't need defrosting and I've got used to the motor noise.
My advice is ask them to turn on the demo model in the shop, and then see if you can put up with the noise. It might be a problem if you live in a little house. otherwise, it's pretty good.
