By far the worst design of any product I've ever seen.
By far the worst design of any product I've ever seen: the dimensions, accessibility, AND utility are all sub-par.
Because the price was attractive, the Hisense was given a go. From day 1, pretty much everything about the fridge has shown to be craphouse.
The shelves are set at stupid heights (i.e. Mars bar/3lt milk heights and not much in-between), and the doors open on hinges that increase the width considerably, in turn, severely reducing alcove usability.
The ice tray isn't incorporated. It takes a Chinese puzzle master to disassemble and refill it, and 0 whatsoever to replace it, because it just hangs out in the back of the freezer (or lack thereof). The water dispenser can be filled up by either a long hose or contortionist, and once it's full you'll break any glassware that you try to defeat the water-dispenser guardian-lever with.
Although outside dimensions are quite deep, the inside of the fridge can't even fit a decent tray of ANZAC biscuits; there is a kind of anti-TARDIS thing going on. All other dimensions are annoyingly different from everything, ever.
With all that said. The Hisense is a very pretty fridge and it does keep things very cold. Sometimes frustratingly so.
Purchased in August 2018.
Well featured fridge but there’s a gotcha
This fridge is an attractive unit and the 4 doors are a good feature as are the seperate freezer compartments. It is performing well, albeit in a different spot than we bought it for.
BUT: be careful if you have a tight area to put this fridge. The fridge requires a large amount of space either side of it. The manual states 200mm (8 inches for the oldies). This is because unlike most other fridges this one radiates the excess heat from the SIDE panels, not the back. The fridge IS NOT suitable for installation as a built in unless you have the stated space available, otherwise you will suffer reduced performance, possible damage to the fridge and risk heat damage to your cupboards.
The fridge this was to replace only requires only 20mm side clearance.
Great look fridge, modern design.
Maintains consistent temperature, has a middle strip which tells you the temp throughout the different compartments.
Shelves can be moved to get the size shelving you require.
Has other great features in door like egg holder, wine bottle holder, a water dispenser.
Fridge is easy to open and close, beeps if not closed properly.
Love it so far...
Just bought this fridge a week ago. Already loving it's convenience of having 4 doors. Looks great in my kitchen. Good for small cavity size. Controller looks nice. Inside led light is quiet bright in dark. Frizeer is well sorted with six compartments very useful to sort different items. You can also keep different temps for two doors.
