Suggest a good Refrigerator


Hi friends... I need your expert advise. Yesterday my 10 years old Samsung refrigerator died. The technician says it's compressor is gone and and needs to be replaced at the cost of 5K. I don't see it's worth to spend that much on a 10 year old fridge.

Can you guys suggest a good fridge around 300-350 liters? Cost will be fine at 20-25K, or little more for a really good product.

Thanks,
Durgesh

Sharp Refrigerators are the best, but am not sure if they have smaller versions. Pls. check out in their website.

Cheers,
Hari.

why not go again for Samsung direct cooling or frost-free range. check out in your nearest home appliance dealer & pick the latest model in that price bracket.

i am not in consent with your statement above.
Hitachi might be good in huge side by side, sharp may has some good 4-door refrigerator.
But in India, you should always prefer the brand which has good after sales service.

Well i wont not suggest u to buy Sharp and Hitachi they are gud in higher segments but the issues will be after service and the cost involvement , Choose anything in LG, Samsung or Whirlpool or even godrej they all are gud in that price bracket not much of technology has evolved over the time, its still all same, for marketing they do all the stuf of showing of diff things. but end products all work the same...

Hitachi are way too good. Not only in terms of technolgy but compact size and flat designs but little costly. Go check them before any other purchase. my experince had been good so far and they do have a.s.s. office in pune.

Re: Suggest a good Refrigerator

Whirlpool seems to be the best bet when it comes to reliability, longevity and they are quiet too. Samsung and LG are a step behind comparitively. As far as service goes the latter two are better.

Re: Suggest a good Refrigerator

Thanks guys for such a quick response!
My Samsung fridge served us for a good 10 years without much trouble. I was just wondering whether LG/Samsung/Godrej/Whirlpool are still any good or got degraded with time?
Yeah, Hitachi looks really promising; sure they are costly. I've heard a lot about Hitachi ACs; I guess refrigerators also will be quite good. Definitely I'll check Hitachi before making a final decision.
Thanks again.

edurgesh, I have got a 2 year old Samsung fridge. All is fine, just that the noise is unacceptable for me.

I am using Sharp Refrigerators since past 2 years and both my mother and wife are extremely happy with its performance. No noise, great cooling and practical too. Make an informed decision before you decide. As far as service goes, till now i have not faced any issues with the product. Also i have the direct service from Sharp service franchise at Thane itself whose services i have not used till date as there is no problem with the product.

Cheers,
Hari.
