3 Reasons For

Very Long Cable Length

When compared to other similar spec fridges that have been available for around the same time as the ARL 878 A+, the cable length of the Ignis ARL 878 A+ of 2.45 meters is one of the longest. The shortest cable length of fridges that were launched around the same time as the ARL 878 A+ is 1.5m, the longest is 2.5m, and the average cable length is 2.2m.

Chart Edit

Shallow

The ARL 878 A+ is fairly shallow (only 545 millimeters) compared to most of the other similar spec fridges that have been available for around the same time as the ARL 878 A+. The average depth of small total net capacity fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago is 580mm, and the depths range from 440mm to 1,400mm.

If you are not worried about having a deeper depth then you might want to look at the Bosch KIS86AD40 (£1,199.00) (545mm), the Miele KFN 37682 iD (£1,499.00) (545mm), or the Siemens KI32VA50GB (£549.00) (545mm).

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of fridge freezers of a similar spec and age to the ARL 878 A+ range from 5dB to 47dB. With a noise level of only 36 decibels, the ARL 878 A+ has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been available for around the same time as the ARL 878 A+.

Other fridge freezers with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the AEG SCS51800S1 (£392.03) (36dB).

With a gross freezer capacity of only 49 liters, the ARL 878 A+ has a fairly small gross freezer capacity compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ARL 878 A+.

Chart Edit

Very Small Freezer Capacity

With a freezer capacity of only 2.5 kilograms per 24 hours, the ARL 878 A+ has a fairly small freezer capacity compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as the ARL 878 A+. Across all the small total net capacity fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as the ARL 878 A+ the freezer capacities range from 1.5kg/24h to 20kg/24h, and the average freezer capacity is 5.2kg/24h.

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Most fridge freezers that have been on the market for around the same time as the ARL 878 A+ do not have a super cool function. The ARL 878 A+ is no exception to this as it too does not have a super cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Like most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable spec and age to the ARL 878 A+, the ARL 878 A+ does not have a water filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Most fridges that are a similar age to the ARL 878 A+ do not have a water dispenser. The ARL 878 A+ is no exception to this as it too does not have a water dispenser.

We think you might also be interested in other fridge freezers which also have a water dispenser including the Hotpoint-Ariston BDFS 242 AA (£210.60), or the Kenwood KFCD55W15 (£225.00).

Like most of the other fridges of a similar type and age to the ARL 878 A+, the ARL 878 A+ does not have an icemaker.

We compared all the other fridges which also have an icemaker to this fridge freezer and we think the Beko CSA 24032 (£344.96) is also worth considering.
