Reviews

Good Brand

Small fridge net capacity fridges produced by Bosch have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all fridge freezers (not just small fridge net capacity fridges) and found that Bosch also has good reviews across its entire range.


Other

Released Over Four Years Ago

This fridge has been on the market since December 2012.


Energy

Very High Running Costs

Whilst the efficiency rating of this Bosch fridge is A+, the KGN34VB20G is one of the least economic to run fridge freezers of this type and age that we have looked at for running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the KGN34VB20G will cost £689 over 24 years to run.


Freezer

Quite Large Freezer Net Capacity

The smallest freezer net capacity of comparable spec fridges that were released more than two years ago is 4.5L, the largest is 240L, and the average freezer net capacity is 68L. At 93 liters, the Bosch KGN34VB20G has a fairly large freezer net capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers that were released around the same time as this fridge.

We compared this fridge to all the other 93L net freezer capacity fridges and we think cheaper fridge freezers such as the Bosch KGN34VL20G (£349) is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a larger freezer net capacity then you might want to look at the Bosch KGN34VL30G (£469.99) (105L), or the Hotpoint FFUL 1820 (£475) (182L).

Average Storage Time During Power Failure

At 14 hours, the KGN34VB20G has a fairly average storage time during power failure compared to most of the other small fridge net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago.

We compared all the other 14h storage time during power failure fridge freezers to this fridge and we think cheaper fridges such as the Bosch KGN34VL20G (£349) is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a fridge with a longer storage time during power failure then you might want to consider the Zanussi ZBB 28440 SA (£379.99) (24h and cheaper).

We compared this fridge to all the other 42dB noise level fridges and we think the Candy CCDS 5144 (£365.90), and the Liebherr CN 3033 (£399) both of which are cheaper; or the Bosch KGN34VW30G (£502) which has better reviews are also worth considering.
