Solid Fridge but Very Smelly
We purchased this fridge from Harvey Norman and it had a strong smell from the first day even when there is no food in it. We tried washing and wiping everything thoroughly but it did not help. Unfortunately the bad odour is also transferred to the ice cubes and when you put them in a glass of water it will make the water undrinkable. Surprisingly when I get in touch with Mitsubishi Customer Service and complained they suggested putting baking soda or lemon in the fridge! All reputable fridge brands manufactured these days have built-in odour filters and I am surprised why Mitsubishi didn't put one in their fridge.

Without a doubt the best fridge I have ever owned!
Multi-drawer is great for organising your food and vegetables. I love the supercooling. It looks great in the kitchen. Blow the moths out of your wallet, I am glad I did!

Love this fridge. Supper quiet spacious. Have been using it for almost a year. My kids always keeps opening the ice drawer but because it's a simple drawer it just functional and unbreakable.
I wish retailers bring in more made in Japan appliances.

Beautifully designed fridge. Surprisingly quiet.
It's a large fridge so ensure you arrange proper transport.
Also, if you have a cupboard above your fridge area in the kitchen, download the dimensions drawing from the link on the Mitsubishi website and ensure it will fit, as it is a bit taller than your standard fridges. Worth cutting back your overhead cupboard and doors above the fridge a little - a cabinetmaker should be able to do that easily if needed.
Drawers might need a little getting used to but this fridge is definitely advanced...for the features and way it controls the temperature without all the air blowing around like some older models. The fruit/vege drawer down the bottom is excellent, and what it loses in freezer capacity it makes up for it fridge capacity. If like me you are used to a big side-by-side fridge-freezer, the freezer capacity might be a step down, but a good opportunity to have a clean-out, or invest in the deep freeze if you need to store so much in the way of frozen goods. Actually it's kind of 1.5 freezer compartments, as it has an additional 1/2 drawer for items you want to keep either freeze or cool down slowly - yes it's that sophisticated you can set this compartment to cool items down slowly that may be spoiled if cooled down too quickly. The section of the fridge you use the most has the most space - the fridge and french door area - that was a nice aspect I missed with the old side-by-side I had, and made up in spades for the small reduction in the freezer space I had before in the side-by-side. The side-by-side spaces were quite narrow to begin with, and poorly designed in that, when you open the doors, all the cool air falls out of the entire section - doesn't happen with the drawers. I love the ice maker. Sure it takes up half a drawer, but it's a smart design that doesn't bother with plumbing water in - so forget that option. These days people may source their own water and it may not be from the plumbing - and you don't need to refill the tank that often, but very easy to do so via the fridge compartment.

Awesome looking fridge
I purchased this fridge for the veggie drawer and the freezer drawer. It's like a Tardis, huge on the inside. It fits so much in, we only shop once a week now.
I thought it was drying the veggies out, say I bought a bag of apples and put half in the fridge and half out on the bench, 4-5 days later the ones on the bench looked better and the ones in the fridge were starting to look soft like a wrinkled old woman. So I consulted the manual and found two solutions: 1) keep things in the bag for freshness (a bit disappointing because this is what...

Perfect, quiet, functional, stylishly simple
Had this fridge for 3 years now. Loads for freezer storage and the ice draw is a big plus. It's quiet and has been a greatest addition to my kitchen. Nothing else on the market fitted the dimension requirement for my small apartment, but this fridge would suite a bigger apartment as well. It's uncannily the the most coveted and desirable thing I have when people come to visit. Could not be more satisfied. Thank you Mitsubishi for coming up with this design for the perfect sized functional and well designed fridge.

Early days yet, but the consideration for practical purposes and functions make this a great fridge. Lots of space. At first thought I would not have enough space in the freezer, but with the versa compartment I have no problems

4 years into ownership. So glad we bought it!!!
Purchased the fridge about 4 years ago now, and thought a review after a few years of ownership may be useful.
This was more expensive that many other fridges at the time, but the compact size and stying suited us, and as we didn’t want to use too much space for a fridge we went for it.
It is almost silent in operation - you have to concentrate to pick its noise from other ambient sounds in a quiet room.
It operates flawlessly, and has from day one.
The white patterned glass front looks great and never shows finger marks and the like

Best fridge I’ve ever owned : )
My old fridge door fell off a week before Christmas 2019 and I was forced buy a new fridge urgently.
When I first started looking I fell in love with all the bells and whistles of this Mitsubishi - MR-WX743C-SA2 - 743L French Door Fridge, however I was a bit sceptical of the draw design and how hardy they would be, as I had only ever owned a standard single-door, freezer-on-top style.
One year has passed and I am not sorry at all that I took a $leap of faith on the new draw design, every single feature of this fridge is fantastic, it’s functio...
Purchased in December 2019.
Quiet, cools quickly, energy efficient. Well designed overall.
Only wished it was slightly wider, i.e. 850mm but still ample storage due to depth.
The only thing I could ask for is if the ice maker was plumbed.

Big capacity, compact measurements
This amazing 743 litre unit, gave us an extra 140 litre capacity over most other brands for our compact space. The adjustability & versatility are fabulous and so very quiet, winner!
Purchased in November 2020 at Winning Appliances ACT, Kingston.
Like the wide shelves. The spacious drawers, plenty of extra space with drawers within the drawers at the top, so you can put opened packets on them rather than fight for them in the freezer and the crisper. Love the little extra freezer. Only gripe is that the bottle holder at the bottom of the small left hand door is not big enough to hold a 3 litre milk and it is not interchangeable with the one higher up the door that can take a 3 litre, strange omission as they stick out the same width.

Great fridge for big family
Bought this fridge to replace a 14 years old side-by-side Westinghouse.
Loves the idea of the different drawers, mainly the vegies one at the bottom.
We're eating lots of fresh vegies and it seems they keep fresher with this unique drawer (but it's too hard to really determine).
The fridge compartment itself is big, with the exception it cannot house tall containers as easy as we could with the previous one.
Freezer drawer is big enough, but it's not enough for us (a personal preference I guess), but the fact the Vera drawer can (and is) a fre...

The Angry Ant
Well we waited nearly 90 days for this fridge to be delivered..it seems there was none around and the build was being done and this was in May 2020 from H.N. but we wanted this fridge from all reports it was the "Bees KnEES" of the latest fridges...first couple of days in August in 2020 it arrived...it LOOKED every bit what I thought it would BUT smaller all thought it was bigger than my old Sharp 30 year old 500 litres fridge. Plugged it in, did not need any levelling...lights came on and purring a good 4 hrs it is purring like a kitten...sooo...oo quite...even tells me with a chime when my Wife or I are too long at leaving the door's opened . Bit hard to difference the compartments but getting use to it...NOICE n bright inside..easy to "learn" what door to open to get what you want...but take time to pack your freezer stuff and you will be okay! SOOooooo very glad we waited as this fridge is only 1 month old (built in June) and I've learned this model is only made for New Zealand and Australia...the glass fronts stop me from sticking magnets on the front doors making it look so busy (from the old fridge I took all the magnets off it and it looked a new fridge) but the sides are not covered in glass so you can stick them there if wanting....this fridge is hauntingly quite....every time I walk by it I feel it's a shadow cause we got the Argent Silver colour....great fridge...great fridge!!

Omg I love the size and versatility of this fridge. It cost more than my hubbys car. Who cares. Ive bever been able to put a plate in a fridge. Its always been a constant juggling and squashing. Now its like a mansion with more space than food. What happened. Loving it

Questions & Answers
Why does this fridge have the vegetable drawer on the bottom when every other fridge stores vegetables either in the fridge section or just below it and a freezer drawer is always on the bottom.
This is a deal-breaker for my wife.
Hi Darryl, Good question! No idea - be glad to see what others/the manufacturer has to say about that. My guess (and it's only a guess) is that it was just a design decision, to locate the colder compartments of the fridge in the centre - being the 'versa' drawer, ice maker, and freezer drawer. I do like the fact that I can sit on a stool with the bags full of apples etc and just empty them into the bottom draw, but each to their own I guess! I'm really liking the fridge's ability to keep food for a longer time (compared with our old side-by-side where our food / fruit/veges went off really quick and I didn't put it down to the poor cooling function of the fridge). This fridge has so many advantages - it's whisper quiet as well - another advantage I didn't consider before, the vege drawer on the bottom is the least of our concerns. I mean, they've got to put something at the bottom. And if they'd put a plinth there it would become too tall - as it is we had to adjust our cupboard overhead to fit the taller size of this fridge - but glad we did, switching to this fridge has been the best decision we made as it's been an awesome fridge in so many ways (sorry to rub that in if you're unable to purchase one)! :-).
Pity as our family appreciates the existing layout.
Please share your wife’s alternate purchase.
Panasonic 551L NR-CY55CGKAU
I must say it's a smart looking unit with a full width sealed vegetable draw in the fridge section so no bending and it also has another section that serves the same function as the Versa Drawer in the Mitsubishi, plus it's also considerably cheaper. I do like the Mitsubishi but I can live with the Panasonic too. Anyway, nobody can answer my question, not even Mitsubishi. The guy who replied simply said he honestly didn't know why and it was a Japanese design decision and they are not part of the process in Aust.
