3 Reasons For

Short

Across all the fridge freezers that have been around for around the same time as the ARC 2000 the heights range from 540mm to 2,100mm. The ARC 2000 is one of the shorter fridges that were released more than two years ago (only 1,420 millimeter) amongst fridge freezers of this age.

If you don't mind having a taller height then you might also want to look at the Beko RBI 6301[plb_1126052_price] (1,440mm).

Narrow

When compared to other fridge freezers of a comparable age and spec to the ARC 2000 that we have assessed, the width of the ARC 2000 of only 500 millimeters is one of the narrowest. The average width of fridge freezers of this type and age is 600mm.

Alternative fridges with a wider width that you might want to look at include the Hotpoint HMB 313 I[plb_79809_price] (540mm), the Beko RBI 6302[plb_1910250_price] (534mm), or the Amica FD 206.3[plb_1943670_price] (478mm).

14 Reasons Against
