The narrowest Undercounter fridge that was released around the same time as the R5010W is 440mm wide, the widest is 600mm, and the average width is 540mm.
If you are not bothered about having a wider width then you might also want to consider the CUL50W12 (£99.99) (494mm), or the CUR50W12 (£109.99) (494mm) both from Essentials which is also cheaper.
5 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Water Dispenser
The LEC R5010W does not have a water dispenser, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec refrigerators that were released more than two years ago also do not have a water dispenser.

Across all the refrigerators of a similar type and age to the R5010W the gross capacities range from 46L to 160L, and the average gross capacity is 120L. The LEC R5010W has a fairly small gross capacity (only 103 liters) compared to most of the other Undercounter refrigerators that were released around the same time as the R5010W.
Very Small Net Capacity

Other fridges with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the TFAA 10 S (£138.00) (39dB), or the TFAA 10 (£129.99) (39dB) both from Indesit or the Logik LUL55B13 (£129.99) (42dB).
+3 Other reasons
At 574 millimeters, the LEC R5010W has a fairly standard depth compared to most of the other similar spec refrigerators that have been available for more than two years.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 574mm deep fridges currently available including cheaper refrigerators such as the Essentials CUL55W12 (£99.99).
Alternative refrigerators with a deeper depth that you might want to look at include the Indesit TFAA 10 S (£138.00) (580mm), or the Logik LUL55B13 (£129.99) (574mm).
At 845 millimeters, the LEC R5010W has a pretty typical height compared to most of the other Undercounter refrigerators that have been around for around the same time as the R5010W.
Other 845mm high refrigerators currently available that you might also want to look at include the Essentials CUL55W12 (£99.99) which is cheaper; or the LEC L5010W (£119.00) which has better reviews.
If you would consider a refrigerator with a taller height then you might want to look at the Logik LUL55B13 (£129.99) (845mm).
