    love my frost free Zanussi,any Zanussi fridge I had has lasted for years and years.

    70/30 split, rapidly got used to only having three freezer drawers, and it's great not having to defrost ever again.

    'A' rating for economy is an important point too.As is whether CFC's are used inthe refigerant- it may cost to dispose of it when it eventually breaks down for last time.

    I always consult Which? magazine reports about this kind of thing. You can probably get hold of a copy from your local library.

    The cheapest recommendations from their latest survey (Sept 06):

    Bosch KIM 30443GB 572
    Samsung RL33S BNS 293
    Hotpoint FFA84 362
    Bosch KGU 31125 - Exxcel 419

    i have the Sumsung as above (but in silver) - it's great

    Whatever you choose though, go for A rating and frost-free

    Have a gander on here...

    There really is a forum for eveything on the net.

    Siemens, Liebherr or Miele seem to be the best by people who have to repair them.

    Thanks, Need to order soon, as finding it difficult to manage without a fridge from last 3-4 days.

    Well the engineer from Indesit, who also repair hotpoint and other brands, said definitely DON'T go for a frost free. he said the majority of faults he attends are for frost free models.

    I am still looking for a F/F must be about 55cm wide and 170cm high , 50 / 50 split preferably. I wish I had ordered the Hotpoint RFA52 from argos when they had 50 off it. I just missed out by a day I think.

    I cant recommend any particular model but i can rcommend this Comet site for getting a bargain. They basically sell their seconds on this auction site.

    I bought a F/F a couple of weeks ago for a very good price. 100 cheaper than in-store including delivery. The customer service/delivery was very good too.

    Always do your research though and set a max price before you start bidding otherwise you may not get such a bargain.

    This link may be else where on this site, not sure but here it is again.

    P.S The damage on the F/F i recieved was a 2 inch dent bottom right hand side. Perfect as its been put in between the cupboard and a wall anyway so you cant see it.

    Have a look at Good housekeeping magazine website - they also do product comparisons, probably on a smaller scale than Which, but I always trusted their advice and haven't been sorry yet!!!

    Oh, and I got Hotpoint FF200T. The 'vacuum' system is fantastic, veggies do stay fresh for long.
