Acceptable Noise Level

One Panasonic NR-B53V2 owner said in their reviews that this fridge freezer was noisy. Dedubya wrote “I'll likely squeeze more out of it!) Noise levels are good, my old Maytag was noisier especially when it defrosted itself, this Panasonic seems pretty well behaved” in their review and gave it an excellent rating.

Good Support

One Panasonic NR-B53V2 reviewer considered that the product had good technical guidance. Dedubya wrote two years ago “There's a feature in one of the veggie drawers to help retain freshness using blue LED's or suchlike, all sounded very gimmicky” in their review of this fridge freezer.

Superior Storage

One customer who purchased the product concluded that it had good drawers.

Reasonably Priced

One customer who reviewed the product thought it was a bargain for the price. Alan George wrote on Amazon in October last year “Bought another cheap fridge while our £1400 fridge is dead” in his review of the Panasonic NR-B53V2 however despite that he gave it a rating of 1 stars.

Chart

Has a Water Dispenser

The NR-B53V2 has a water dispenser, unlike most of the other fridge freezers that have been available for a similar time to the NR-B53V2 which do not have a water dispenser.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other fridge freezers with a water dispenser currently available including because of it's better review score, the Samsung RSG5UUMH[plb_2662678_price], the Britannia Montana[plb_2662522_price], or the Siemens iQ500 KA62DA71GB[plb_2662689_price].

Across all the fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the NR-B53V2 the total gross capacity range from 6.1L to 18,000L.

Chart Edit

Has an Icemaker

Unlike most of the other fridge freezers that have been available for more than two years which do not have an icemaker, the NR-B53V2 has an icemaker.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other fridge freezers with an icemaker currently available including the Samsung RSG5UUMH[plb_2662678_price], the Britannia Montana[plb_2662522_price], or the Siemens iQ500 KA62DA71GB[plb_2662689_price] which has better reviews.

9 Reasons Against

Poor Design

Some people who reviewed it agreed that it was not a good design. Kermit said in his review of the Panasonic NR-B53V2 on Amazon “Design Fault”.

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Most fridge freezers of this type and age do not have a water filter. The NR-B53V2 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water filter.

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

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

Chart Edit
