Why Has it Scored 65?

Rex is a mediocre freezer brand.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer, better freezers are available.
Whilst this freezer has an energy efficiency rating of A+, its running costs of £830 over 10 years are in the most expensive 6% of all 1,700+ freezers that we have calculated running costs for.
It has some great features:
Higher than average freezer net capacity
Longer than average storage time during power failure
Larger than average freezer gross capacity

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each freezer by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age, value for money and running costs.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the freezer is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec freezers come to market, the older freezers will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
