3 Reasons For
Fairly Large Freezing Capacity
At 24 kilograms per 24 hours, the Siemens iQ700 has a fairly large freezing capacity compared to most of the other latest medium net capacity freezers. Across all the medium net capacity freezers that have been on the market for a similar time to the iQ700 the freezing capacities range from 8kg/24h to 30kg/24h, and the average freezing capacity is 20kg/24h.
At only 556 millimeters, the Siemens iQ700 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other medium net capacity freezers that have been available for a comparable time to the iQ700. The narrowest comparable spec freezer that came out in the last 12 months is 550mm wide and the widest is 810mm.
If you don't mind having a wider width then you might want to look at the AEG A52200GSW0 (£347.05) (595mm) which is also cheaper.
The average depth of medium net capacity freezers that have been available for around the same time as the iQ700 is 630mm. At only 545 millimeters, the Siemens iQ700 is quite shallow compared to most of the other newly released freezers.
Other freezers with a deeper depth that you might want to look at include the AEG A52200GSW0 (£347.05) (658mm and cheaper).
2 Reasons Against
Very High Running Costs
This Siemens freezer is rated A++ for energy efficiency, however the iQ700 is one of the least economic to run medium net capacity freezers that were released in the last 12 months that we have analysed for 24 year running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the iQ700 is £571.
Very Short Storage Time During Power Failure
At only 11 hours, the Siemens iQ700 has a fairly short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other similar spec freezers that came out in the last 12 months. Medium net capacity freezers that are a similar age to the iQ700 have storage times during power failure of between 10h and 46h.
If this freezer storage time during power failure is not long enough for you then you might want to consider the Hotpoint UH6 F1C W (£381.99) (24h), or the Bosch GSV24VW31G (£419.00) (24h).
3 Other reasons to consider the Siemens iQ700
Released Nine Months Ago
This freezer has been on the market for nine months.
At 1,772 millimeter, the Siemens iQ700 has a relatively typical height compared to most of the other comparable spec freezers that were released in the last 12 months.
Freezers with a taller height that might also be worth looking at include the AEG A52200GSW0 (£347.05) (1,540mm) which is also cheaper.
Average Noise Level
At 40 decibels, the Siemens iQ700 has a fairly average noise level compared to most of the other medium net capacity freezers that are a comparable age to the iQ700.
There are a number of alternative 40dB noise level freezers currently available that you might also want to look at including cheaper freezers such as the AEG A52200GSW0 (£347.05).
Other freezers with a higher noise level that you might want to look at include the Indesit OS 2A 200 H (40dB).

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 Siemens iQ700uses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this freezer over 10 years will generate 2.8 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 73 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
