Performance

Average Total Net Capacity

At 250 liters, the KGN30VL20G has a relatively typical total net capacity compared to most of the other small fridge net capacity fridges that have been available for a similar time to this fridge freezer.

We compared this fridge to all the other 250L total net capacity fridge freezers and we think the Gorenje NRCI4181 (£459.00) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a fridge freezer with a larger total net capacity then you might also want to consider the Beko CF 5713 AP (£299.00) (251L), the Neff K4204X8 (£339.00) (255L), or the Bosch KIV32X22GB (£330.00) (255L) which also has a higher rating.

With a noise level of 42 decibels, the KGN30VL20G has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other small fridge net capacity fridges that have been around for a comparable time to this fridge.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 42dB noise level fridge freezers currently available including the Bosch KGN34VB20G (£469.00), the Haier HRFZ316AA (£289.95), or the Liebherr CN 3033 (£399.00) which has better reviews.
