Advantages Looks great, has superb build quality, and not a bad price
Disadvantages A little noisy if I'm being picky
I moved into my new house back in January, and as part of re-furnishing some aspects of the kitchen, I was looking to buy a new fridge freezer. The previous owners had a large 'American Style' fridge freezer in the kitchen, and so it was my intention to look for something similar (as they had taken theirs with them).
After scouting around numerous websites for well over a week, and constantly measuring up in the kitchen to see what would (and wouldn't) fit, I decided on the Samsung RSA1NHMH model, as it ticked all the boxes for me in terms of size, style, colour, design, features and price.
I originally spotted this on Boots' website priced at £629, but after spending a while searching around on the internet the best price that I could find for this model was from a place called 'Appliances Online' which seemed to have some pretty good reviews about it, so I went ahead and (eventually) ordered it at a price of £579 which included free delivery.
~~~ Delivery and Packaging ~~~
A few weeks later I got a knock on the door, and there stood a delivery man with a huge box that he and two other guys where supporting on a large trolley, and the first thing he said to me was 'There is no chance of getting this through your door mate!' I immediately took his word for it as it was MASSIVE, and so we went to the rear of my house, where eventually we managed to get it through my patio double doors, and into the kitchen - Phew!
So a word of warning for anyone thinking of buying one of these is make sure it will fit through the doors in your house. Once I removed all of the outer packaging however the unit did shrink in size, so I reckon an alternative solution would have been to un-package it outside, and then try again. Also the fridge and freezer doors can be removed fairly easily with a screwdriver, which again reduces the depth of the unit.
Once the outer packaging was removed my nice new fridge freezer was visible, and looked great. The packaging had done the job, and inside the fridge and the freezer each self and tray was also wrapped in protective packaging, which kept everything safe, and in one piece.
~~~ Installation and User Manual ~~~
A 36 page user manual was included in the packaging, which was simple to read, and did a great job of explaining in clear detail any necessary steps to set up the unit, along with full operating instructions, energy saving tips, and a troubleshooting section.
Installation was very simple, just a case of removing a front leg cover to expose a roller, and 2 white adjustable feet. The roller was fixed to the bottom of the fridge (out of sight) and was superb as it allowed me to wheel the unit around the kitchen, and into position. Once located where I wanted it, I just had to adjust the feet, by turning them using a flat bladed screw driver so that the base of the unit was raised up above the roller, making the roller redundant, and the feet then provided the stability. The front cover was then replaced, and the unit was plugged in, and ready to use!
