Chas said on Amazon “It is very quiet and has plenty of room in the fridge area” in his review. D. Nash mentioned “It's -28, don't get this model, if you want a quiet machine” but in spite of that they only rated the Hotpoint FFA 52 P 20 out of 100.

One person concluded that this fridge freezer was noisy. Five years ago Jenny scored it very highly and she mentioned in her review of the Hotpoint FFA 52 P on Amazon “Don't think it's noisy at all”.

Robust

One Hotpoint FFA 52 P owner who reviewed it thought it was easy to damage or scratch. Rachel Bennett mentioned in her review “Door holder very flimsey and are now broken” yet she rated the product 20 out of 100. One person said in their reviews that the Hotpoint FFA 52 P was well made. D. Nash mentioned “It was quiet at first, because it was frozen solid.” .

Nice Design

One Hotpoint FFA 52 P reviewer considered that this fridge freezer was good looking. Basilbrush wrote “I read the instructions before starting ! And it looked a pretty easy job.”.

Good Size

One person said in their reviews that it was thin. Mrs Sheila Dysart wrote “I chose this fridge /freezer becauce i wanted a slim line one becauce of space issue”.

Reasonably Priced

One Hotpoint FFA 52 P reviewer who reviewed the product concluded that it was good value for money. Jenny said on Amazon “Especially pleased with the price from Amazon, as it was” in her review of this fridge freezer and gave it an excellent review.

Good Connectivity

One Hotpoint FFA 52 P owner who reviewed the Hotpoint FFA 52 P concluded that it was able to connect to the internet. Ms. K. Campbell wrote “From searches on the Internet it's clear that this is not simply a one off issue with my own” in their review.

Better Storage

One customer said in their reviews that the product had good drawers. An Honest Reviewer mentioned “The freezer itself has 3 drawers, with a quick ice section at the top” in her Hotpoint FFA 52 P review but in spite of that she only gave it a rating of 1 stars.

14 Reasons Against

Poor User Reviews

On average, based on 16 user reviews the average user rating of this fridge freezer is 51 out of 100. Users aren't convinced by this fridge.

Hotpoint Only Has Unexceptional Reviews for Its Fridges

Whilst Hotpoint is one of the unexceptional fridge brands according to average reviews from experts and users, Hotpoint has ok reviews specifically for its fridge freezers.

Defrosting Problems

One person said that it did not have a good defrost feature. An Honest Reviewer rated the Hotpoint FFA 52 P 20 out of 100 and she wrote “Miss with shop bought items, as soon as they go into one of the drawers they can slowly defrost”.

Poor Support

One person who purchased the product reckoned that it did not have good technical guidance. Basilbrush said “The hinge holes in the casing needed drilling out and then the hinge diagram in the instructions was incorrect” .

Very Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The shortest storage time during power failure of fridge freezers that have been available for a similar time to the FFA 52 P is 9h and the longest is 33h. At only 12 hours, the FFA 52 P has a fairly short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago.

There are a number of other 12h storage time during power failure fridge freezers currently available that you might also want to look at including the Hotpoint FFA 52 S[plb_1086597_price] which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a longer storage time during power failure then you might want to consider the Samsung RL4353LBASP[plb_2926731_price] (18h), the Beko RBI 6102[plb_1912537_price] (19h), or the Candy CCDS 5144[plb_2538887_price] (20h) which also has a higher rating.
