1 Reason For
Low net capacity freezers produced by LEC have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all freezers (not just low net capacity freezers) and found that LEC also has good reviews across its entire range.
2 Reasons Against
Quite Small Gross Capacity
At only 85 liters, the LEC U5511 has a quite small gross capacity compared to most of the other low net capacity freezers that have been around for around the same time as the U5511. The average gross capacity of freezers that have been available for around the same time as the U5511 is 100L, and the gross capacities range from 32L to 210L.
Very Small Freezing Capacity
With a freezing capacity of only 4 kilograms per 24 hours, the LEC U5511 has one of the smaller freezing capacities amongst low net capacity freezers of this age. The freezing capacities of low net capacity freezers that have been around for a similar time to the U5511 range from 2kg/24h to 20kg/24h, and the average freezing capacity is 8.9kg/24h.
7 Other reasons to consider the LEC U5511
Average Running Costs
This LEC freezer is rated A+ for energy efficiency. The U5511 is typical compared to the other 64 freezers of a similar age and spec that we have analysed for 24 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the U5511 is £411.
Released Over a Year Ago
It was over a year ago when LEC released the U5511.
Average Noise Level
At 40 decibels, the LEC U5511 has a relatively average noise level compared to most of the other freezers of a comparable age and spec to the U5511.
We compared this freezer to all the other 40dB noise level freezers and we think the LEC U5010 (£124.99), and the Indesit TZAA 10 (£140.00) which has better reviews is also worth considering.
Freezers with a higher noise level that might also be worth looking at include the LEC CF100L (£139.97) (40dB).
+5 Other reasons
At 574 millimeters, the LEC U5511 has a pretty standard depth compared to most of the other freezers of this type and age.
If you would consider a freezer with a deeper depth then you might want to look at the Beko UF584AP (£139.00) (595mm).
At 553 millimeters, the LEC U5511 has a fairly average width compared to most of the other low net capacity freezers that were released around the same time as the U5511.
Alternative freezers with a wider width that you might want to look at include the Beko UF584AP (£139.00) (545mm).
At 845 millimeters, the LEC U5511 has a pretty standard height compared to most of the other freezers of this spec and age.
We compared all the other 845mm high freezers to this freezer and we think because of it's better review score, the LEC U5010 (£124.99) is also worth considering.
Other freezers with a taller height that you might want to look at include the Beko UF584AP (£139.00) (840mm).
Average Storage Time During Power Failure
The LEC U5511 has a fairly standard storage time during power failure (15 hours) compared to most of the other freezers of this spec and age.
If this LEC freezer storage time during power failure is too short for you then you might want to look at the Beko CF374 (£129.00) (30h) which also has a higher rating.

Total running cost over 10 years
Running costs for this freezer have been estimated based on other similar freezers. If you know how much electricity and water the LEC U5511uses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this freezer over 10 years will generate 2.0 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 53 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
