12 Reasons For

User Reviews Are Good

Based on 30 user reviews this low net capacity freezer has an average user rating of 87%.

A Top Selling Freezer

The U5010 is one the fastest selling freezer currently available.

Acceptable Noise Level

Some LEC U5010 reviewers reckoned that the product was quiet. Andrew Garrett wrote in his review on Amazon “The Freezer is very quiet and gets to temperature without fuss very quickly” and gave it a very good review. Backstopbob mentioned in their review of this freezer “Nice clean lines, very quiet”. Sandy mentioned “It is also very quiet, you can hardly tell when the motor is running”.

Good Size

Three LEC U5010 reviewers concluded that this freezer was compact. Four years ago Sandy said in his review of this freezer “This is a compact under-counter freezer, so it doesn't hold as much as a chest freezer.”. One customer concluded that the product was a good size. Norman Stone said “Good size for the smaller kitchen” in his review of the LEC U5010.

Reasonably Priced

Three LEC U5010 owners who purchased the LEC U5010 concluded that it was good value for money. Gillian Cain gave this freezer a score of 5 stars and she mentioned on Amazon “Surprising amount of space in this compact freezer good value for money runs quietly plastic drawers stop cold escaping from other shelves when accessing food”. Four years ago Happy Shopper said on Amazon “This item is just what i needed fits in nicely and works very well its already saved me money and shopping trips good item thank you”. Norman Stone wrote last year “Good running costs, good looks and good price!” in his LEC U5010 review.

Superior Storage

Some LEC U5010 reviewers who reviewed the LEC U5010 considered that it had good drawers. Caulkhead said on Amazon “The tiny drawers require very careful management indeed” in their review but in spite of that they only gave it a rating of 2 stars.

Robust

Some customers who purchased it thought it was reliable. Leoness rated it as very good and mentioned in their LEC U5010 review on Amazon “Reliable make and very spacious”. Leoness also wrote “It was hard to find a reliable make in 50cm”.

Energy Efficient

One customer who reviewed this freezer concluded that it was efficient.

Good Brand

We calculated the average reviews for all LEC freezers and also specifically for LEC low net capacity freezers and found that in both cases LEC had good reviews compared to other brands.

Chart

Light

Across all the similar spec freezers that were released around the same time as the U5010 the weights range from 16kg to 55kg, and the average weight is 33kg. The LEC U5010 is quite light (only 31 kilograms) compared to most of the other low net capacity freezers that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Shallow

With a depth of only 540 millimeters, the LEC U5010 is quite shallow compared to most of the other similar spec freezers that have been around for a comparable time to the U5010. The depths of low net capacity freezers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the U5010 range from 440mm to 670mm.

Freezers with a deeper depth that might also be worth looking at include the Beko UF584AP[plb_2805629_price] (595mm).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Narrow

With a width of only 501 millimeters, the LEC U5010 is one of the narrower freezers of a comparable spec and age to the U5010 amongst low net capacity freezers of this age. The widths of comparable spec freezers that were launched around the same time as the U5010 range from 430mm to 950mm.

If you would consider a freezer with a wider width then you might want to look at the Beko UF584AP[plb_2805629_price] (545mm).

4 Reasons Against

Price Has Increased by £24.01

In the last 8 days the price of the U5010 has increased by £24.01.

Very Short Storage Time During Power Failure

With a storage time during power failure of only 10 hours, the LEC U5010 has a fairly short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other low net capacity freezers that have been on the market for more than a year. Freezers of a similar type and age to the U5010 have storage times during power failure of between 5h and 30h, and the average storage time during power failure is 20h.

If this low net capacity freezer storage time during power failure is not long enough for you then you might want to consider the LEC U5511[plb_2812423_price] (15h) which is also cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Small Gross Capacity

Low net capacity freezers that have been available for a comparable time to the U5010 have gross capacities of between 32L and 210L, and the average gross capacity is 100L. The LEC U5010 has one of the smaller gross capacities (only 72 liters) amongst comparable spec freezers of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Freezing Capacity

The LEC U5010 has a fairly small freezing capacity (only 4 kilograms per 24 hours) compared to most of the other freezers of this type and age. Comparable spec freezers that are a similar age to the U5010 have freezing capacities of between 2kg/24h and 20kg/24h, and the average freezing capacity is 9.3kg/24h.

Chart Edit

3 Other reasons to consider the LEC U5010

Running Costs Are OK

This LEC freezer is rated A+ for energy efficiency, and the average running cost of the U5010 is £362 over 24 years based on typical usage levels and energy prices, which is typical compared to the other 65 freezers of this age and spec.

Average Noise Level

At 40 decibels, the LEC U5010 has a fairly standard noise level compared to most of the other low net capacity freezers that have been around for around the same time as the U5010.

We compared this freezer to all the other 40dB noise level freezers and we think the U5511[pl_2812423_price], and the CF100L[pl_2812633_price] both from LEC which is cheaper; or the Indesit TZAA 10[plb_2238872_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Height

The LEC U5010 has a relatively standard height (845 millimeters) compared to most of the other freezers of this spec and age.

Other 845mm high freezers currently available that you might also want to look at include the LEC U5511[plb_2812423_price] which is cheaper.

Freezers with a taller height that might be worth looking at include the Beko UF584AP[plb_2805629_price] (840mm).
