LEC released the R5511 over three years ago.
Average Noise Level
The LEC R5511 has a fairly typical noise level (40 decibels) compared to most of the other fridges that were launched around the same time as the R5511.
There are a number of other 40dB noise level refrigerators currently available which you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the R5010W[pl_2962384_price], or the L5010W[pl_2962388_price] both from LEC.
Other fridges with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Indesit TFAA 10[plb_2962378_price] (39dB) which also has a higher rating.
+5 Other reasons
At 574 millimeters, the LEC R5511 has a fairly average depth compared to most of the other Undercounter refrigerators that have been available for more than two years.
There are a number of alternative 574mm deep fridges currently available that you might also want to consider including the CUL55W12[pl_2962382_price], or the CUR55W12[pl_2962391_price] both from Essentials or the LEC R5010W[plb_2962384_price] which has better reviews.
With a width of 553 millimeters, the LEC R5511 has a relatively typical width compared to most of the other refrigerators of this age and spec.
We compared all the other 553mm wide refrigerators to this refrigerator and we think the CUL55W12[pl_2962382_price], and the CUR55W12[pl_2962391_price] both from Essentials which has better reviews is also worth considering.
If you would consider a refrigerator with a wider width then you might want to look at the Indesit TFAA 10[plb_2962378_price] (550mm) which is also higher rated.
