8 Reasons For

Fairly Large Net Fridge Capacity

The average net fridge capacity of large total net capacity fridge freezers that have been around for more than two years is 290L, and the net fridge capacities range from 85L to 2,300L. At 356 liters, the RT63PBVB has a quite large net fridge capacity compared to most of the other fridges of this age and spec.

If this fridge freezer net fridge capacity is not large enough for you then you might also want to consider the Samsung RF56J9040SR[plb_2962364_price] (361L), or the Smeg FAB50XS[plb_1316533_price] (362L).

On average Samsung fridges are rated 84 out of 100, which is in the top 40% of all fridge manufacturers that we have assessed.

Short

The average height of similar spec fridges that have been on the market for a comparable time to the RT63PBVB is 1,900mm, and the heights range from 200mm to 2,200mm. The RT63PBVB is fairly short (only 1,801 millimeter) compared to most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable spec and age to the RT63PBVB.

Chart Edit

Chart Edit

Fairly Large Total Gross Capacity

The RT63PBVB has one of the larger total gross capacity (503 liters) amongst large total net capacity fridge freezers of this age. The total gross capacity of fridges of a similar age and type to the RT63PBVB range from 250L to 660L.

10 Reasons Against

Very Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The shortest storage time during power failure of fridges of this spec and age is 4h and the longest is 44h. The RT63PBVB has a quite short storage time during power failure (only 12 hours) compared to most of the other fridge freezers of this age and spec.

If you would prefer a fridge with a longer storage time during power failure then you might want to look at the A2FE635C[pl_1974065_price] (13h), or the C2FE736C[pl_1545226_price] (13h) both from Haier which also has a higher rating.

Very High Running Costs

Whilst this large total net capacity fridge is rated A+ for energy efficiency, the RT63PBVB has an average running cost of £962 over 24 years based on average usage levels and energy prices, which makes it one of the most expensive to run fridge freezers of a similar age and type.

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Like most of the other large total net capacity fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as the RT63PBVB, the Samsung RT63PBVB does not have a super cool function.

Chart Edit

Only One Freezer Shelve/basket

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

The Samsung RT63PBVB does not have a water filter. Most of the other fridges of this type and age also do not have a water filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

Like most of the other large total net capacity fridge freezers that have been on the market for more than two years, the RT63PBVB does not feature ice crushing.

We compared this fridge freezer to all the other fridges with an ice crushing and we think the Samsung RH56J6917SL[plb_2962366_price] is also worth considering.
