5 Reasons For for Choosing the Russell Hobbs RH55FF171W

39% Larger Fridge Capacity

The Russell Hobbs RH55FF171W has a fridge net capacity of 166L. That's 16L larger than the Hotpoint HBD5517S (150L), 99L larger than the Magic Chef MCBR240B1 (67L), 106L larger than the Montpellier MAB2030R (60L) and 28L larger than the White Knight FF225H (138L). More ...

The net capacity of the fridge refers to the total usable space inside the fridge after deducting the space consumed by all the shelves, brackets etc. Basically it's the total usable storage space inside. Capacity is normally measured in litres. One bag of shopping is approximately 18 litres.

A big fridge is great for large families or houses with several adults.

A Bit Quieter Noise Level

The Russell Hobbs RH55FF171W has a noise level of 40dB, however the Hotpoint HBD5517S is a 44dB noise level fridge freezer (4dB louder) and the Montpellier MAB2030R and the White Knight FF225H are both 42dB noise level fridge freezers (2dB louder). More ...

The amount of shelves and/or baskets in the fridge.

The net capacity of the freezer refers to the total usable space inside the freezer after deducting the space consumed by all the shelves, brackets etc. Basically it's the total usable storage space inside. Capacity is normally measured in litres. One bag of shopping is approximately 18 litres.

A larger freezer lets you freeze more food that may be coming to the end of its shelf life rather than throwing it away. It's also great if you like to cook big meals and then freeze portions for use later.

Does Not Have a Door Open Alarm

The Russell Hobbs RH55FF171W does not have a door open alarm (As do the the Hotpoint HBD5517S and the Montpellier MAB2030R), however the Magic Chef MCBR240B1 and the White Knight FF225H have this feature. More ...

The Russell Hobbs RH55FF171W is four months older than the Hotpoint HBD5517S and 19 months older than the Magic Chef MCBR240B1. The Russell Hobbs RH55FF171W is the same age as the White Knight FF225H.

Customers report that Montpellier MAB2030R has average user reviews with an average user rating of 68%.

4 Reasons For for Choosing the Montpellier MAB2030R

Automatic Defrost (Fridge)

The Montpellier MAB2030R has an automatic defrost (fridge) (as does the Hotpoint HBD5517S), however the Magic Chef MCBR240B1, the Russell Hobbs RH55FF171W and the White Knight FF225H do not have this feature. More ...

An automatic defrost functionality that periodically activates to remove any ice build up in the fridge.

Ice build up can degrade the efficiency of the fridge, and large amounts of ice may even stop the appliance from working altogether. Automatic defrosting can help prolong the life and efficiency of your appliance.

Fresh Zone Compartment

The Montpellier MAB2030R has a fresh zone compartment (as does the Hotpoint HBD5517S), whereas the Magic Chef MCBR240B1, the Russell Hobbs RH55FF171W and the White Knight FF225H do not have this feature. More ...

A part of a fridge which is cooler than the rest, at between 0 and 3 degrees Celsius, used for chilling meats, seafood, fruit and vegetables.

By compartmentalising the fresh fruit and veg away from the rest of the food in your fridge-freezer, this makes sure it keeps as fresh as possible for the longest time possible.

Cheaper to Run by $180 Over Five Years

The Montpellier MAB2030R is $176 cheaper to run than the Hotpoint HBD5517S, $86 cheaper to run than the Magic Chef MCBR240B1, $121 cheaper to run than the Russell Hobbs RH55FF171W and $125 cheaper to run than the White Knight FF225H over five years. More ...

One Year Longer Manufacturer's Guarantee

The manufacturer's guarantee provided with the Montpellier MAB2030R is two years, whereas it is one year for the Hotpoint HBD5517S.

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the Montpellier MAB2030R

Vastly Smaller Fridge Capacity

More ...

The net capacity of the fridge refers to the total usable space inside the fridge after deducting the space consumed by all the shelves, brackets etc. Basically it's the total usable storage space inside. Capacity is normally measured in litres. One bag of shopping is approximately 18 litres.

A big fridge is great for large families or houses with several adults.

59L Smaller Freezer Capacity

The net capacity of the freezer refers to the total usable space inside the freezer after deducting the space consumed by all the shelves, brackets etc. Basically it's the total usable storage space inside. Capacity is normally measured in litres. One bag of shopping is approximately 18 litres.

A larger freezer lets you freeze more food that may be coming to the end of its shelf life rather than throwing it away. It's also great if you like to cook big meals and then freeze portions for use later.

Hugely Smaller Total Capacity

The Montpellier MAB2030R has a total net capacity of 86L, but the Hotpoint HBD5517S is a 235L total net capacity fridge freezer (149L larger) and the Magic Chef MCBR240B1 is a 68L total net capacity fridge freezer (18L smaller). More ...

'Total Net Capacity' is the total usable (net) capacity of both the fridge & freezer, measured in litres.

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

The Montpellier MAB2030R is a 42dB noise level fridge freezer, and so does the White Knight FF225H. That's 2dB quieter than the Hotpoint HBD5517S (44dB) and 2dB louder than the Russell Hobbs RH55FF171W (40dB). More ...

The noise level of the fridge-freezer, measured in decibels (dB).

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

172L Smaller Total Capacity

The Montpellier MAB2030R has a total gross capacity of 88L, but the Hotpoint HBD5517S is a 260L total gross capacity fridge freezer (172L larger). More ...

The total capacity of the fridge-freezer, this is the sum of the capacity for food storage and the capacity of the walls etc.

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

Only One Shelf / Basket (Fridge)

The number of shelves / baskets (fridge) on the Montpellier MAB2030R is one, but the White Knight FF225H only has two shelves / baskets (fridge), the Magic Chef MCBR240B1 only has three shelves / baskets (fridge) and the Russell Hobbs RH55FF171W only has four shelves / baskets (fridge). More ...

The amount of shelves and/or baskets in the fridge.

Does Not Have a Door Open Alarm

The Montpellier MAB2030R does not have a door open alarm (As do the the Hotpoint HBD5517S and the Russell Hobbs RH55FF171W), however the Magic Chef MCBR240B1 and the White Knight FF225H do. More ...

'Door Open Alarm' denotes whether the fridge-freezer has an alarm triggered by the door being left open.

Alarms help warn you when something goes wrong with your fridge-freezer, and can help prevent problems or accidents.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Montpellier MAB2030R has only received a Kagoo Score of 79, whereas the Hotpoint HBD5517S scored 83, the Magic Chef MCBR240B1 scored 90, the Russell Hobbs RH55FF171W scored 82 and the White Knight FF225H scored 82.

4 Reasons For for Choosing the White Knight FF225H

59L Larger Freezer Capacity

The White Knight FF225H is an 85L net freezer capacity fridge freezer (as does the Hotpoint HBD5517S), whereas the Montpellier MAB2030R is only a 26L net freezer capacity fridge freezer (59L smaller) and the Russell Hobbs RH55FF171W is only a 64L net freezer capacity fridge freezer (21L smaller). More ...

The net capacity of the freezer refers to the total usable space inside the freezer after deducting the space consumed by all the shelves, brackets etc. Basically it's the total usable storage space inside. Capacity is normally measured in litres. One bag of shopping is approximately 18 litres.

A larger freezer lets you freeze more food that may be coming to the end of its shelf life rather than throwing it away. It's also great if you like to cook big meals and then freeze portions for use later.
