Perfect fridge, no complaints


Have this fridge for over two year now and it's still doing excellent. No fussy installation required, just plug in and switch on. Compartments are detachable for cleaning (except for the egg storage part, still can't figure out how to detach it and clean). No noise at all.

Purchased in June 2017 at The Good Guys Online store for $500.00.

Good little fridge


I bought it as my first fridge. Good size for one person. Temperature is good. I have a thermometer inside but obviously being a small fridge i dont put semi warm food inside. It quiet and easy to clean glass shelves. Krisper keeps my veggies good for ages. Happy with purchase. Going strong after travelling interstate after several months

Great value for money from this fridge


First thing you have to bear in mind is that, this is not a huge fridge. That said, It maintains a good temperature and well spaced. However, during operation it can get a bit noisy which can be heard if you do not have any other sounds running in the background. Very easy to clean and it's a bang for the buck

Not cold enough


This fridge wasn't working as well as my old beer fridge from the start. The fridge is hot at the front where the door seal connects with the fridge, We got the technician around. He says it measures 2 degrees C inside at a setting of 6 out of 7, which is normal (I don't think it is cold enough). I am reluctant to turn it up to 7/7 but may have to in order to have cold enough beer.

Great fridge, a little noisey


The looks and design of this fridge is great - all the shelves are really well spaced (I was even able to adjust the shelves so that I can stand up beer bottles at the bottom) and the LED light provides amazing lighting. The pull our drawer at the top is great and so far our veges are lasting a bit better. It's the perfect size 2 people. The only thing is the compressor makes a very high pitched noise, that when there is no other noise, is quite distracting. Also, when the compressor clicks on it is quite loud.

great value for money


fridge works fine for 2 people. Was a little noisy but besides that, had absolutely no problems with it. Easy to clean, maintained good temperature and all parts and accessories were of good quality and easy to use. We upgraded to a bigger fridge because there wasn't enough room for fruit and veggies and we buy a lot of that. But this fridge was good value for money as we are uni students. did the job.

Questions & Answers



what is the overall height, and does this include the "pods)?

No answers



Is the noise of the compressor common to this model , and if so , what is the level of noise .

2 answers

I don't know if it's common, I'm just a consumer. But all I know is that when the compressor kicks on it makes quite a sound (almost like a bang at times), and then a high pitched noise for the entire time the compressor is on. Which seems to be a really long time, possibly due to the 'digital inverter'. I potentially have a faulty unit though? I will keep an eye on it.

The noise, which I would term "sound", is hardly noticeable.
