8 Reasons For
Fairly Large Fridge Net Capacity
The smallest fridge net capacity of fridge freezers of a similar age and type to the RF56J9040SR is 85L and the largest is 2,300L. The Samsung RF56J9040SR has a quite large fridge net capacity (361 liters) compared to most of the other comparable spec fridge freezers that are a similar age to the RF56J9040SR.
Samsung Has Good Fridge Reviews
On average Samsung fridge freezers are rated 84%, which is in the top 23% of all fridge freezer brands that we have analysed.
Very Large Freezer Net Capacity
The freezer net capacity of the Samsung RF56J9040SR of 203 liters is one of the largest amongst similar spec fridges that are a comparable age to the RF56J9040SR. The average freezer net capacity of large total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago is 100L.
Very Big Freezer Gross Capacity
The RF56J9040SR has one of the biggest freezer gross capacitys (248 liters) amongst large total net capacity fridges of this age. The smallest freezer gross capacity of similar spec fridges that have been available for around the same time as the RF56J9040SR is 84L and the biggest is 250L.
Has a Water Dispenser
Unlike most of the other large total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago which do not have a water dispenser, the RF56J9040SR has a water dispenser.
We compared this fridge freezer to all the other fridge freezers with a water dispenser and we think cheaper fridge freezers such as the AEG S76010CMX2[plb_2981224_price] is also worth considering.
Has an Icemaker
The Samsung RF56J9040SR has an icemaker, unlike most of the other fridge freezers that have been on the market for more than two years which do not have an icemaker.
We compared this fridge freezer to all the other fridges with an icemaker and we think cheaper fridges such as the FAB50X[pl_1316532_price], and the FAB50P[pl_1316530_price] both from Smeg or the AEG S76010CMX2[plb_2981224_price] is also worth considering.

With a total gross capacity of 628 liters, the RF56J9040SR has one of the largest total gross capacitys amongst fridge freezers of this age.

11 Reasons Against
Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure
With a storage time during power failure of only 14 hours, the RF56J9040SR has one of the shorter storage time during power failures amongst fridges of this age. Fridge freezers of this age and spec have storage time during power failures of between 4h and 44h.
Similar spec fridge freezers that have been around for more than two years range in price from £299 to £3,999. We think that this Samsung fridge freezer looks expensive compared to other similar spec fridge freezers that have been around for more than two years.
Does Not Have an Air Filter
The Samsung RF56J9040SR does not have an air filter. Most of the other large total net capacity fridges that are a similar age to the RF56J9040SR also do not have an air filter.
Does Not Have a Super Cool Function
Like most of the other fridge freezers that came out around the same time as the RF56J9040SR, the RF56J9040SR does not have a super Cool function.
There are a number of other fridges which also have a super Cool function which you might also want to consider including the CBNPgw 3956[pl_1981820_price], or the CBNPes 5156[pl_1988851_price] both from Liebherr or the Siemens KG49NSB31[plb_1904637_price].

Only Three Fridge Number of Shelves/basketss
The RF56J9040SR is a three fridge number of shelves/baskets fridge freezer. Most of the other large total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the RF56J9040SR have between two and nine fridge number of shelves/basketss.
Running Costs Are High
Whilst the energy efficiency rating of this fridge is A+, the RF56J9040SR is one of the less economic to run fridge freezers of a similar age and spec that we have looked at for 24 year running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the RF56J9040SR is £1,105.
When compared to other fridges of this age and spec, the RF56J9040SR's weight of 153 kilograms is one of the heaviest. Across all the large total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago the weights range from 10kg to 230kg.
