3 Reasons For

Narrow

Fridges of this age and type have widths of between 470mm and 1,900mm. At only 545 millimeters, the RTA 42 P is quite narrow compared to most of the other fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 545mm wide fridge freezers currently available including the RFA 52 S[pl_1086594_price], or the RFA 52 P[pl_1086593_price] both from Hotpoint which is cheaper.

Alternative fridges with a wider width that you might want to look at include the Indesit IN C 325 AI[plb_1044628_price] (543mm).

Hotpoint Fridges Have Good Reviews

Whilst Hotpoint is one of the better rated fridge brands according to average reviews from experts and owners, Hotpoint has only ok ratings specifically for its fridge freezers.

Short

The RTA 42 P is one of the shorter comparable spec fridges that were launched around the same time as the RTA 42 P (only 1,390 millimeter) amongst fridge freezers of this age. Across all the fridges of a similar spec and age to the RTA 42 P the heights range from 540mm to 2,100mm, and the average height is 1,700mm.

If you are not worried about having a taller height then you might want to consider the CSA 24022[pl_613003_price] (1,522mm), or the DSA 25030 S[pl_368103_price] (1,450mm) both from Beko or the Blomberg DSM 9630 X A+++[plb_365927_price] (1,625mm).

11 Reasons Against

Very Small Gross Freezer Capacity

The RTA 42 P has one of the smaller gross freezer capacities (only 43 liters) amongst fridge freezers of this age.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker

The Hotpoint RTA 42 P does not have an icemaker. Most of the other fridges that were released around the same time as the RTA 42 P also do not have an icemaker.

We compared this fridge to all the other fridge freezers with an icemaker and we think the TS55172W[pl_2662622_price], or the TF5517S[pl_2662621_price] both from LEC which is also cheaper is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

We compared this fridge freezer to all the other fridge freezers with a water dispenser and we think the HVBF 5182 AWK[pl_2662571_price], or the HVBF 5182 WWK[pl_2662569_price] both from Hoover or the Hotpoint FFUL 1812[plb_2662580_price] is also worth considering.
