7 Other reasons to consider the LEC R5511
Average Running Costs
This LEC refrigerator has an efficiency rating of A+, and the average running cost of the R5511 is £421 over 24 years based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is typical compared to the other 25 fridges of a similar age and spec.
Released Over Three Years Ago
It was over three years ago when this Undercounter fridge was released.
Average Noise Level
At 40 decibels, the LEC R5511 has a relatively average noise level compared to most of the other refrigerators of a comparable age and type to the R5511.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 40dB noise level fridges currently available including because of it's better review score, the Hoover HFLE54 (£159.99), or the LEC R5010W (£120.00).
If you are not concerned about having a louder noise level then you might also want to look at the Hotpoint DSRLAAV22P (41dB and higher rated).
+5 Other reasons
With a depth of 574 millimeters, the LEC R5511 has a relatively standard depth compared to most of the other similar spec refrigerators that were released more than two years ago.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 574mm deep refrigerators currently available including the Essentials CUR55W12 (£119.99), the Logik LUL55B13 (£139.99), or the LEC R5010W (£120.00) which has a better Rating.
With a width of 553 millimeters, the LEC R5511 has a relatively typical width compared to most of the other refrigerators of this spec and age.
We compared this fridge to all the other 553mm wide fridges and we think because of it's better review score, the Essentials CUR55W12 (£119.99) is also worth considering.
If you are not concerned about having a wider width then you might want to consider the Indesit TFAA 10 S (£138.00) (550mm), or the Hoover HFOE54 (£134.95) (550mm) which is also higher rated.
The LEC R5511 has a fairly standard height (845 millimeters) compared to most of the other refrigerators of a similar type and age to the R5511.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 845mm high refrigerators currently available including the Essentials CUR55W12 (£119.99), the Logik LUL55B13 (£139.99), or the LEC R5010W (£120.00) which has a better Rating.
Average Net Capacity
At 113 liters, the LEC R5511 has a pretty typical net capacity compared to most of the other fridges that have been available for more than two years.
We compared all the other 113L net capacity fridges to this refrigerator and we think because of it's better review score, the Hoover HFOE54 (£134.95) is also worth considering.
If this Undercounter fridge net capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Hoover HFLE54 (£159.99) (125L) which also has a higher Rating.
This small fridge/freezer appears to work OK for the short time we have had it, but is badly let down by a couple of astonishingly-poor design features:
