"Worth the money"
Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good
Cons: freezer drawers low at the back, fridge a little shallow for it's size, light a little dim
"I bought this fridge freezer for my parents as theirs was falling apart.
While it's very big, the fridge capacity isn't enormous due to the air circulation system, making a little on the shallow side, however there are enough shelves to take a small families worth of food.
Temperature around the fridge section seems very even from top to bottom, so while the airflow system takes up some space, it certainly does a great job.
The single LED light inside the fridge is a bit on the dim side, but still bright enough for you to find what you are looking for. However I went to see a lot of fridge freezers in a nearby store, and many other units from all brands seem to have this issue. What with LED's being so cheap to make and run, I don't see why they couldn't have added more or brighter lights.
The salad crisper works perfectly, have had no soggy salads in the couple of weeks they've had this.
The freezer freezes, as expected. While fairly big, the backs of the freezer drawers are a little on the low side, so anything small placed on top of a full drawer may slide down the back onto the drawer below if you aren't careful.
The quick freeze function seems to work pretty well, and everything throughout the freezer section is solid as a brick.
Looks wise, it's plain but smart. Neither myself or my parents are interested in units with buttons and LCD displays all over the front, so this was perfect looking.
Build quality is solid as you'd expect from Bosch.
It's fairly quiet, and I think this is helped by the fact that it has two separate cooling system, one each for the fridge and freezer, so one only kicks in when needed (mostly the fridge for obvious reasons), but even when they are engaged, they aren't very loud at all.
The delivery and installation went smoothly, but the poor guys had to carry the thing up to the second floor as the trolley combined with the packaging made it too tall to get it up the stair well.
All in all, this fridge is definitely a good buy. While there are a couple of small cons, this unit functions brilliantly, and so I would definitely recommend it to a friend, and may even buy one for my own place as my fridge freezer is also on it's last legs."
