6 Reasons For
LEC Has Good Freezer Reviews
Based on 314 expert and user reviews, LEC has good reviews for its freezers. LEC also has good reviews specifically within its medium net capacity freezers range compared to other brands.
At only 1,420 millimeter, the LEC TU55144 is quite short compared to most of the other freezers of this spec and age. The average height of medium net capacity freezers that were launched around the same time as the TU55144 is 1,500mm.
Freezers with a taller height that might also be worth looking at include the Indesit UIAA 12 (£248.00) (1,750mm), or the Beko TF546AP (£230.00) (1,455mm) which is also cheaper.
With a weight of only 44 kilograms, the TU55144 is one of the lighter medium net capacity freezers that have been on the market for around the same time as the TU55144 amongst medium net capacity freezers of this age. Across all the freezers of a comparable age and type to the TU55144 the weights range from 27kg to 85kg, and the average weight is 55kg.
Across all the comparable spec freezers that are a similar age to the TU55144 the depths range from 540mm to 770mm. With a depth of only 550 millimeters, the TU55144 is quite shallow compared to most of the other medium net capacity freezers that were released one year ago.
Freezers with a deeper depth that might also be worth considering include the Beko TF546AP (£230.00) (595mm) which is also cheaper.
The average width of freezers of a similar type and age to the TU55144 is 620mm. With a width of only 550 millimeters, the LEC TU55144 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other freezers that have been on the market for around the same time as the TU55144.
If you don't mind having a wider width then you might want to look at the Beko TF546AP (£230.00) (545mm) which is also cheaper.
Very Low Connected Load
At only 70 Watts, the TU55144 has a quite low connected load compared to most of the other freezers that came out around the same time as the TU55144. The lowest connected load of medium net capacity freezers that have been available for a comparable time to the TU55144 is 56W, the highest is 310W, and the average connected load is 110W.

4 Reasons Against
Very Small Freezing Capacity
At only 10 kilograms per 24 hours, the LEC TU55144 has a quite small freezing capacity compared to most of the other freezers of this spec and age. Freezers that are a similar age to the TU55144 have freezing capacities of between 6kg/24h and 30kg/24h.
Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure
Medium net capacity freezers that are a similar age to the TU55144 have storage times during power failure of between 5h and 60h, and the average storage time during power failure is 22h. With a storage time during power failure of only 16 hours, the TU55144 has a quite short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other freezers that were released one year ago.
If you want a longer storage time during power failure then you might also want to consider the Siemens iQ300 (£199.00) (24h) which is also cheaper.
Very Small Gross Capacity
The TU55144 has a fairly small gross capacity (only 170 liters) compared to most of the other medium net capacity freezers that are a comparable age to the TU55144. Medium net capacity freezers that were released around the same time as the TU55144 have gross capacities of between 140L and 260L.
Only Three Shelves/baskets
Most freezers of a similar age and spec to the TU55144 have between one and eight shelves/baskets, including the TU55144 which has three shelves/baskets.

Running Costs Are Average
The energy efficiency rating of this medium net capacity freezer is A+. The TU55144 has an average running cost of £501 over 24 years based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is typical compared to the other 62 freezers that were released more than a year ago.
Average Noise Level
At 42 decibels, the TU55144 has a relatively typical noise level compared to most of the other freezers of a comparable spec and age to the TU55144.
Other 42dB noise level freezers currently available that you might also want to look at include the Hotpoint FZFM151 (£210.00) which has better reviews; or the Beko TF546AP (£230.00) which is cheaper.
Alternative freezers with a higher noise level that you might want to look at include the Electrolux EC1501AO (£249.99) (42dB).
