A higher capacity means that more food can be stored in the freezer at a time.

Marginally Higher Noise Level

The Zanussi ZFX31401WA has a noise level of 43, but the LEC U5511 is a 40dB noise level freezer (3dB lower) and the Russell Hobbs RHTTFZ1 is a 42dB noise level freezer (1dB lower). More ...

The noise level of the freezer, is the noise generated by the freezer's compressor which runs in the background when the freezer is swithced on. The noise level is measured in decibels (dB).

Fewer dB means a quieter freezer, which means it is less likely to be distracting or annoying as it hums along in the background.

The shelf/basket count refers to the amount of shelves and/or baskets in the freezer.
