Small total net capacity fridge freezers built by Beko have excellent reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all fridges (not just small total net capacity fridge freezers) and found that Beko also has excellent reviews across its entire range.
Fridge freezers of this age and type have net freezer capacities of between 16L and 240L, and the average net freezer capacity is 61L. At 95 liters, the CS 234030 X has a very large net freezer capacity compared to most of the other similar spec fridge freezers that were released around the same time as the CS 234030 X.
Across all the small total net capacity fridge freezers that are a similar age to the CS 234030 X the total gross capacity range from 22L to 400L, and the average total gross capacity is 260L. When compared to other fridges of this age and spec that we have assessed, the total gross capacity of the CS 234030 X of 321 liters is one of the largest.
This fridge freezer has a Double door, which is typical of many comparable spec fridges that came out more than two years ago.
At only 80 Watts, the CS 234030 X has a fairly small typical power consumption compared to most of the other fridges of a similar spec and age to the CS 234030 X. The average typical power consumption of fridge freezers of this age and type is 120W, and the typical power consumption range from 80W to 160W.
Fridge freezers of a comparable spec and age to the CS 234030 X have electric currents of between 0.4A and 16A, and the average electric current is 9.8A. The CS 234030 X has one of the lowest electric currents (only 0.4 ampere) amongst comparable spec fridges of this age.
With a connected load of only 80 Watts, the CS 234030 X has one of the lower connected loads amongst fridge freezers of this age. The average connected load of fridge freezers that were released around the same time as the CS 234030 X is 130W.
With a height of 1,853 millimeter, the Beko CS 234030 X's height is one of the tallest amongst fridge freezers that are a comparable age to the CS 234030 X. Across all the fridge freezers that have been available for a similar time to the CS 234030 X the heights range from 400mm to 2,100mm.
Alternative fridge freezers with a taller height that you might want to look at include the Smeg CR330AP (£608.00) (1,856mm).
The Beko CS 234030 X does not have a super cool function. Most of the other fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago also do not have a super cool function.
The CS 234030 X does not have a water filter. Most of the other similar spec fridge freezers that are a comparable age to the CS 234030 X also do not have a water filter.
Most comparable spec fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the CS 234030 X do not have an air filter. The Beko CS 234030 X is no exception to this as it too does not have an air filter.
The Beko CS 234030 X does not have a water dispenser, although it is worth noting that most of the other fridges of a similar age and type to the CS 234030 X also do not have a water dispenser.
We compared this fridge freezer to all the other fridge freezers with a water dispenser and we think the HotpointAriston BDFS 242 AA (£210.60), or the Kenwood KFCD55W15 (£225.00) is also worth considering.
The CS 234030 X does not have an icemaker. Most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that were launched more than two years ago also do not have an icemaker.
We think you might also be interested in alternative fridges which also have an icemaker including the Beko CSA 24032 (£344.96).
Like most of the other fridge freezers of a similar type and age to the CS 234030 X, the CS 234030 X does not feature ice crushing.
The CS 234030 X does not have an AntiBacteria function. Most of the other fridge freezers that have been on the market for around the same time as the CS 234030 X also do not have an AntiBacteria function.
There are a number of other fridge freezers which also have an AntiBacteria function that you might also want to consider including the EKGC 16166 (£255.02), or the EKGC 16167 (£343.32) both from Amica.
Most small total net capacity fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as the CS 234030 X do not have a humidifier function. The CS 234030 X is no exception to this as it too does not have a humidifier function.
Across all the small total net capacity fridge freezers that were launched more than two years ago the net fresh zone compartment capacities range from 17L to 86L. With a net fresh zone compartment capacity of only 25 liters, the CS 234030 X has one of the smaller net fresh zone compartment capacities amongst fridges of this age.
The Beko CS 234030 X has a fairly loud noise level (42 decibels) compared to most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable spec and age to the CS 234030 X. The quietest noise level of fridges that were released more than two years ago is 5dB, the loudest is 47dB, and the average noise level is 39dB.
If you would consider a fridge freezer with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Gorenje NRKI 4181 (£439.00) (42dB).
The energy efficiency classification of this small total net capacity fridge is A++, and the CS 234030 X is typical compared to the other 406 fridges of a comparable type and age that we have analysed for 24 year running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the CS 234030 X is £489.
At 197 liters, the CS 234030 X has a pretty standard net fridge capacity compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been available for more than two years.
If you want a fridge with a larger net fridge capacity then you might want to consider the Liebherr ICN 3356 (£1,166.99) (198L).
It was over five years ago when Beko released the CS 234030 X.
At 18 hours, the Beko CS 234030 X has a relatively typical storage time during power failure compared to most of the other similar spec fridges that were released more than two years ago.
The CS 234030 X has a fairly standard depth (600 millimeters) compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been around for a comparable time to the CS 234030 X.
Fridges with a deeper depth that might be worth looking at include the Beko CHA 28021 S (£393.79) (600mm), the Zanussi ZRT 318 W (£299.99) (600mm), or the Siemens KI39FP60 (£1,434.53) (600mm).
