    Default Need Suggestion buying a Regrigerator !

    Hi Guys,

    I wanna buy a refrigerator. I only want to buy between Samsung or LG, so which one should I go for ? I have shortlisted these 3 models.

    1. Samsung RR2015SSBL

    2. Samsung RR2115TABBL

    3. LG GL-225BEDG5

    My biggest question is that, the Store Guy was trying to explain me if the coil on the Backside of the Refrigerator is inside the refrigerator i.e concealed it heats up the entire refrigerator body from the sides too fast and can affect cooling and performance is that correct ? Samsung offers Concealed Coil whereas the Model that I have shortlisted in LG has Coil outside the body.

    Out of Samsung and LG which one should I go for in Refrigerator? The store guy was trying to tell me always go with LG if you wanna buy a Refrigerator and go with Samsung if you wanna buy a AC is this any true ?

    Which brand offers the best service and sturdy and durable product and good performance ?

    Thanks in Advance !

    More than anything else, first consider the storage space, internal features, etc. Read the article that I have written on this topic.

    More than storage and features which are pretty much the same on all the three models that I have shortlisted It is more important to me to know how they fair up in terms of Performance, After sales service and as I said earlier, having a Coil inside the Body or Outside the body how much does it affect the performance that is more important to me then anything else !

    Most of the store guys who sells appliance are idiots! They just want to promote their "bulk available". A refrigerator in simple language absorves the heat from the compartment (the fridge's inside), and reject that absorved heat into the atmosphere with the help of the compressor and refrigerent ciruit. If you have noticed, in olden times, you might have seen those black coils on the rear of the refrigerator. They are called condensor coils. Similar to what you see at the back of window airconditioners or the outdoor unit of a split ac. Now a days, inorder to increase the efficiency of the unit, those coils are "sticked' to the sides of refrigerator, so that the heat is abosrved more quickly on to the walls of the refrigerator and dissipated to the atmosphere (The room basically. Increasing the area for heat transfer - Some mechanical engineering). But, this doesn't mean that it will deteriorate the cooling capacity inside, because the inside compartment is seperated from the outside wall with PUFF INSULATION

    So, the consealed one is better than the coiled ones


    As far as brand names are concerned, for home appliances LG is a good brand, but I wont suggest these brands when buying an airconditoner. Make sure that you buy a star rated one to save energy. The more the stars, the more energy you save.

    Chill out!!

    Hmmm...interesting thought !

    The Stars are the same on Samsung and LG both and Samung as you say has a concealed Coil (Advantage Point from the above discussion) so would the choice have to be Samsung ?

    Good catch! In this situation, what you can actually look for is the "power consumption", mentioned there in "Watts". For both fridge's (same capacity in litres), see what is the power consumption. This is shown in the BEE label itself (The star rated sticker). The lesser power consuming one for the same capacity is the wise choice!

    You might wonder then why both of them got the same star rating, for this I need to go in detail about the "COP" of the compressor, and at this point I dont think its "digestable" for you. Look for my topic "Airconditioners" in the same. You will get some idea there.

    Anyway, the logic is "Same capacity lesser power consumption". This would help you decide.

    Cheers!

    I would strongly suggest buying a refrigerator with a separate door for the freezer and it would not cost that much either and those are more energy efficient and come with a 5 star rating. The 186, 210 and 215 litres you are looking at is only good for a couple may be and a fridge is not something you change every two years so why not shell out an extra 5-6k and get a bigger and better one? You will use this fridge for atleast 10 years if not more and you might not be using the freezer to keep your meat or poultry these days because there aren't many places you can get frozen food but in 2-3 years time you wont go to the local butcher but pick your chicken from the near by store and put it into your freezer and then finding out that your freezer compartment is only good for keeping ice trays wont help.

    Have a look at some double door (one top of the other) in the range of 250+ litres and trust me you will be happy that you took my advise 5-6 years down the line. Try to get something that has a longer warranty.

    Dont settle for anything less then 5 star energy rating.

    The sales guy was pushing the one with open coils at the back because no one buys them any more and it just fills up with dust over the years with no way to clean it without moving the whole thing.

    Do not buy the one with open coils at the back and you shouldn't be asking the sales guy for advise any way... what were you thinking? These sales guy will either try to sell stuff that doesn't sell or something the ones that gets them better margins. Get your advise from a third party with no vested interest.
