1 Reason For

Narrow

With a width of only 550 millimeters, the PKM GKS255 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other fridges that have been around for a comparable time to the GKS255. Comparable spec fridges that have been around for around the same time as the GKS255 have widths of between 400mm and 820mm.

We compared all the other 550mm wide fridges to this fridge and we think the Zanussi ZRG16605WA[plb_2861185_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Alternative fridges with a wider width that you might want to look at include the LEC TL55144[plb_2812884_price] (550mm), or the AEG S51600TSW2[plb_2803419_price] (550mm).

3 Reasons Against

Running Costs Are Very High

The efficiency rating of this PKM refrigerator is B, and based on typical usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the 24 year running cost of the GKS255 is £498, which makes it one of the most expensive to run fridges of a similar spec and age.

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Most refrigerators of this type and age do not have a water dispenser. The PKM GKS255 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water dispenser.

Alternative fridges which also have a water dispenser that you might want to look at include the Hotpoint RLA36[plb_2812954_price] which also has a higher rating.

Quite Loud Noise Level

The PKM GKS255 has a fairly loud noise level (42 decibels) compared to most of the other refrigerators of this spec and age. Across all the Freestanding refrigerators that were launched around the same time as the GKS255 the noise levels range from 33dB to 43dB.

Refrigerators with a louder noise level that might be worth looking at include the Liebherr KBbs 4260[plb_2830357_price] (42dB), the Samsung RR35H6610BC[plb_2882003_price] (42dB), or the Haier HR-385WSAA[plb_2681056_price] (42dB).
