6 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

The efficiency rating of this Sharp fridge freezer is A+. The SJ-300VSL is one of the more economic to run fridges of a similar age and spec that we have analysed for running costs. Based on average energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the SJ-300VSL will cost £508 over 24 years to run.

Short

Fridge freezers that have been on the market for more than two years have heights of between 540mm and 2,100mm, and the average height is 1,700mm. The SJ-300VSL is quite short (only 1,491 millimeter) compared to most of the other fridge freezers of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The SJ-300VSL has a quite quiet noise level (only 39 decibels) compared to most of the other fridge freezers of this age and spec. The quietest noise level of fridges that were released more than two years ago is 25dB and the loudest is 46dB.

Alternative fridges with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the KGC 15373 W (£324.22) (39dB), or the KGC 15361 W (£281.38) (39dB) both from Amica or the Beko CS 232030 X (£361.12) (39dB).

Has an Icemaker

The SJ-300VSL has an icemaker, which is unusual. Most of the other fridges of this type and age do not have an icemaker.

Chart Edit

Double Door

This fridge freezer has a Double door, which is the most frequently found door on fridge freezers that were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The weights of fridges of this age and spec range from 26kg to 170kg, and the average weight is 79kg. With a weight of only 45 kilograms, the Sharp SJ-300VSL is one of the lighter fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago amongst fridge freezers of this age.

12 Reasons Against

Very Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The shortest storage time during power failure of fridges that are a comparable age to the SJ-300VSL is 10h, the longest is 31h, and the average storage time during power failure is 18h. At only 12 hours, the SJ-300VSL has a quite short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other similar spec fridge freezers that were released around the same time as the SJ-300VSL.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Total Gross Capacity

At only 223 liters, the SJ-300VSL has a fairly small total gross capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers of this type and age. Fridges that have been available for a similar time to the SJ-300VSL have total gross capacity of between 6.1L and 18,000L.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Like most of the other fridge freezers that came out around the same time as the SJ-300VSL, the SJ-300VSL does not have a water dispenser.

We compared all the other fridges which also have a water dispenser to this fridge and we think the Samsung RB29FWRNDBC (£379.00) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
