8 Reasons For

Acceptable Noise Level

Several people considered that the product was quiet. Basilbrush mentioned in their review on Amazon five years ago “Ours works well, quiet and keeps icecream at just the right texture, not too soft or too hard”. Chas said on Amazon “It is very quiet and has plenty of room in the fridge area” in his review. D. Nash mentioned “It's -28, don't get this model, if you want a quiet machine” but in spite of that they only rated the Hotpoint FFA 52 P 20 out of 100.

One person concluded that this fridge freezer was noisy. Five years ago Jenny scored it very highly and she mentioned in her review of the Hotpoint FFA 52 P on Amazon “Don't think it's noisy at all”.

Robust

One Hotpoint FFA 52 P owner who reviewed it thought it was easy to damage or scratch. Rachel Bennett mentioned in her review “Door holder very flimsey and are now broken” yet she rated the product 20 out of 100. One person said in their reviews that the Hotpoint FFA 52 P was well made. D. Nash mentioned “It was quiet at first, because it was frozen solid.” .

Nice Design

One Hotpoint FFA 52 P reviewer considered that this fridge freezer was good looking. Basilbrush wrote “I read the instructions before starting ! And it looked a pretty easy job.”.

Good Size

One person said in their reviews that it was thin. Mrs Sheila Dysart wrote “I chose this fridge /freezer becauce i wanted a slim line one becauce of space issue”.

Reasonably Priced

One Hotpoint FFA 52 P reviewer who reviewed the product concluded that it was good value for money. Jenny said on Amazon “Especially pleased with the price from Amazon, as it was” in her review of this fridge freezer and gave it an excellent review.

Good Connectivity

One Hotpoint FFA 52 P owner who reviewed the Hotpoint FFA 52 P concluded that it was able to connect to the internet. Ms. K. Campbell wrote “From searches on the Internet it's clear that this is not simply a one off issue with my own” in their review.

Chart

13 Reasons Against

User Reviews Are Poor

On average, FFA 52 P owners rated this fridge 51 out of 100. If all the fridge freezers of a comparable age and type are ranked by average user review score then this fridge freezer is in the bottom 19%.

Defrosting Problems

One person said that it did not have a good defrost feature. An Honest Reviewer rated the Hotpoint FFA 52 P 20 out of 100 and she wrote “Miss with shop bought items, as soon as they go into one of the drawers they can slowly defrost”.

Poor Support

One person who purchased the product reckoned that it did not have good technical guidance. Basilbrush said “The hinge holes in the casing needed drilling out and then the hinge diagram in the instructions was incorrect” .

Very Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The storage times during power failure of fridge freezers that have been around for a comparable time to the FFA 52 P range from 10h to 31h. At only 12 hours, the FFA 52 P has a fairly short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other similar spec fridges that came out around the same time as the FFA 52 P.

We compared all the other 12h storage time during power failure fridge freezers to this fridge freezer and we think because of it's better review score, the FFA 52 S[pl_1086597_price], and the FF 187 LK[pl_1086646_price] both from Hotpoint is also worth considering.

If this fridge storage time during power failure is too short for you then you might want to look at the KGC 15375 W[pl_1680886_price] (17h and higher rated), or the KGC 15377 W[pl_1680888_price] (17h and higher rated) both from Amica or the Beko SA 25030[plb_1125549_price] (16h and higher rated).
