5 Reasons For

Quite Large Net Fridge Capacity

At 352 liters, the E522BRX4 has a fairly large net fridge capacity compared to most of the other fridges of this spec and age. Large total net capacity fridges that were released one year ago have net fridge capacities of between 200L and 440L, and the average net fridge capacity is 290L.

If you want a fridge freezer with a larger net fridge capacity then you might want to look at the Siemens KG58EBI40 (377L and cheaper), or the Whirlpool WTH 5244 (377L and cheaper).

Quite Large Net Freezer Capacity

With a net freezer capacity of 121 liters, the E522BRX4 has one of the larger net freezer capacities amongst large total net capacity fridges of this age. The net freezer capacities of fridges that are a comparable age to the E522BRX4 range from 72L to 520L, and the average net freezer capacity is 110L.

If this large total net capacity fridge freezer net freezer capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the Liebherr CNPesf 3913 (123L) which is also cheaper.

Short

At only 1,695 millimeter, the Fisher & Paykel E522BRX4 is fairly short compared to most of the other fridges of a similar age and type to the E522BRX4. The shortest fridge freezer that came out around the same time as the E522BRX4 is 200mm tall and the tallest is 2,100mm.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 1,695mm tall fridge freezers currently available including cheaper fridges such as the E402BRX4, or the E402BLX4 both from Fisher & Paykel.

If you would consider a fridge freezer with a taller height then you might want to look at the Fisher & Paykel E521TLX2 (1,695mm).

Quite Large Total Gross Capacity

With a total gross capacity of 534 liters, the E522BRX4 has a quite large total gross capacity compared to most of the other large total net capacity fridges that were launched more than a year ago. Fridges of a comparable age and spec to the E522BRX4 have total gross capacity of between 330L and 700L.

Two Vegetable Drawers

Most fridges that have been around for more than a year have between one and three vegetable drawers, including the E522BRX4 which has two vegetable drawers.

12 Reasons Against

Very Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The shortest storage time during power failure of large total net capacity fridges that have been available for a similar time to the E522BRX4 is 10h and the longest is 44h. The E522BRX4 has a fairly short storage time during power failure (only 12 hours) compared to most of the other large total net capacity fridges that have been around for a comparable time to the E522BRX4.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 12h storage time during power failure fridge freezers currently available including the E522BRXU4, or the E522BRXFDU4 both from Fisher & Paykel which is cheaper.

Fridge freezers with a longer storage time during power failure that might also be worth considering include the Whirlpool WTH 5244 (15h), or the Siemens KG39NVI32G (16h) which is also cheaper.

Does Not Have an Air Filter

The Fisher & Paykel E522BRX4 does not have an air filter, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other fridges that were released around the same time as the E522BRX4 also do not have an air filter.

There are a number of alternative fridge freezers which also have an air filter which you might want to look at including the KG58EBI40, the KG49NAI32G, or the KG49EBI30G all from Siemens.

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser
