4 Reasons For

Samsung Has Good Reviews for Its Fridge Freezers

Samsung has good average reviews for its medium total net capacity fridges as well as across its entire fridge range compared to other brands.

Short

Fridge freezers of a similar age and type to the RL34LCSW have heights of between 770mm and 2,100mm, and the average height is 1,800mm. At only 1,775 millimeter, the RL34LCSW is quite short compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago.

If you don't mind having a taller height then you might want to consider the Liebherr CUP 3021[plb_17359_price] (1,800mm).

Very Narrow

At only 565 millimeters, the RL34LCSW is quite narrow compared to most of the other fridge freezers of this age and type. The narrowest medium total net capacity fridge freezer that came out more than two years ago is 540mm wide and the widest is 1,800mm.

Alternative fridges with a wider width that you might want to look at include the CBN 3733[pl_149051_price] (600mm), or the CUP 3021[pl_17359_price] (550mm) both from Liebherr.

Has an AntiBacteria Function

The RL34LCSW has an AntiBacteria function, which is unusual. Most of the other fridges of this spec and age do not have an AntiBacteria function.

There are a number of alternative fridge freezers which also have an AntiBacteria function which you might also want to look at including the Beko CS 234020[plb_759939_price].

13 Reasons Against

Quite Small Net Fridge Capacity

The net fridge capacities of fridges of a comparable spec and age to the RL34LCSW range from 130L to 340L, and the average net fridge capacity is 220L. With a net fridge capacity of only 201 liters, the Samsung RL34LCSW has a fairly small net fridge capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec fridges that were released more than two years ago.

If this medium total net capacity fridge freezer net fridge capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Rex FI22-11[plb_2017044_price] (202L).

Very High Running Costs

Whilst this Samsung fridge has an energy efficiency rating of A+, the average running cost of the RL34LCSW is £705 over 24 years based on average usage levels and energy prices, which makes it one of the most expensive to run medium total net capacity fridges that were launched more than two years ago.

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The shortest storage time during power failure of fridge freezers of this type and age is 4h and the longest is 46h. At only 10 hours, the RL34LCSW has a very short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other comparable spec fridges that came out around the same time as the RL34LCSW.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Autonomy Time

Across all the comparable spec fridge freezers that have been on the market for around the same time as the RL34LCSW the autonomy time range from 4.5h to 35h, and the average autonomy time is 20h. At only 10 hours, the Samsung RL34LCSW has a fairly short autonomy time compared to most of the other fridges that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Most fridge freezers of this age and type do not have an air filter. The RL34LCSW is no exception to this as it too does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

The RL34LCSW does not have a super cool function. Most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that are a similar age to the RL34LCSW also do not have a super cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

The RL34LCSW does not have a water filter, although keep in mind that most of the other fridges of this age and type also do not have a water filter.

We think you might also be interested in alternative fridges which also have a water filter including the Siemens KG36WXL30S[plb_2373670_price], or the Bosch KGW36XL30S[plb_2362515_price].
