Audio

Acceptable Noise Level

One Panasonic NR-B53V2 owner said in their reviews that this fridge freezer was noisy. Dedubya wrote “I'll likely squeeze more out of it!) Noise levels are good, my old Maytag was noisier especially when it defrosted itself, this Panasonic seems pretty well behaved” in their review and gave it an excellent rating.


Support

Good Technical Guidance

One Panasonic NR-B53V2 reviewer considered that the product had good technical guidance. Dedubya wrote two years ago “There's a feature in one of the veggie drawers to help retain freshness using blue LED's or suchlike, all sounded very gimmicky” in their review of this fridge freezer.


Good Storage

One customer who purchased the product concluded that it had good drawers.


Price

Reasonably Priced

One customer who reviewed the product thought it was a bargain for the price. Alan George wrote on Amazon in October last year “Bought another cheap fridge while our £1400 fridge is dead” in his review of the Panasonic NR-B53V2 however despite that he gave it a rating of 1 stars.


Freezer

Very Large Freezer Net Capacity

At 206 liters, the NR-B53V2 has a fairly large freezer net capacity compared to most of the other similar spec fridges that were released around the same time as this fridge freezer.
