4 Reasons For

Bosch Has Good Reviews for Its Fridges

Bosch is one of the better rated fridge brands according to average owner and expert review score data that we have collected for all fridge freezers.

Short

Fridge freezers of a comparable type and age to the KDN42VW20 have heights of between 200mm and 2,200mm. The height of the KDN42VW20 of only 1,700 millimeter is one of the shortest amongst large total net capacity fridge freezers that have been around for around the same time as the KDN42VW20.

Chart Edit

Two Compressors

Most comparable spec fridge freezers that have been available for around the same time as the KDN42VW20 have between one and three compressors, including the KDN42VW20 which has two compressors.

Chart Edit

Light

The weights of large total net capacity fridge freezers that have been around for more than two years range from 10kg to 230kg. The Bosch KDN42VW20 is quite light (only 70 kilograms) compared to most of the other large total net capacity fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

14 Reasons Against

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The Bosch KDN42VW20 has one of the shorter storage times during power failure (only 14 hours) amongst comparable spec fridge freezers of this age. The average storage time during power failure of fridge freezers of a comparable spec and age to the KDN42VW20 is 21h.

Fridge freezers with a longer storage time during power failure that might be worth considering include the Miele KF 1801 Vi (£7,315.00) (15h).

Very Small Net Freezer Capacity

The average net freezer capacity of large total net capacity fridge freezers that have been available for around the same time as the KDN42VW20 is 100L, and the net freezer capacities range from 58L to 340L. With a net freezer capacity of only 78 liters, the KDN42VW20 has a fairly small net freezer capacity compared to most of the other large total net capacity fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago.

If this Bosch fridge freezer net freezer capacity is not large enough for you then you might also want to look at the Miele KF 1801 Vi (£7,315.00) (80L).
