12 Reasons Against

Quite Small Fridge Gross Capacity

When compared to other fridge freezers of this age and type, the Essentials C50BW12's total gross capacity of only 174 liters is one of the smallest. The total gross capacity of fridge freezers that came out around the same time as the C50BW12 range from 6.1L to 18,000L, and the average total gross capacity is 420L.

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Most fridge freezers of this type and age do not have a water dispenser. The C50BW12 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water dispenser.

We think you might also be interested in alternative fridges which also have a water dispenser including the Samsung RB29FWRNDBC[plb_2662670_price] which also has a higher rating.

Across all the fridge freezers of this age and spec the gross freezer capacities range from 14L to 270L. At only 59 liters, the Essentials C50BW12 has a fairly small gross freezer capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago.

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Like most of the other fridges that were released more than two years ago, the C50BW12 does not have a water filter.

We compared all the other fridge freezers which also have a water filter to this fridge freezer and we think the Samsung RSG5UUMH[plb_2662678_price] is also worth considering.
