    Dude, if you are a member of Costco, pay them a visit, they have some really good ones and their prices are good too, including their return policy....

    Otherwise I would check out John Lewis, cant beat them mate!!

    The main issue in winter is usually the water freezes inside the res in the fridge due to temp setting being to low

    I have a Samsung side by side(American) they are top fridges. Filtered water and ice dispenser. The dogs love it lol. I got mine for £480 should of been £1200 from apollo 2000 before they went bust. They'r ment to be back up and running, I'd check them out dude I couldn't find cheaper back then. But Samsung, whirlpool, hotpoint you cant go wrong. Smeg, neff, nec are good but pricey. But you may find a bargain while looking;)

    Pfft, who needs a fridge or freezer in winter anyway? Just keep it all outside!

    As for the fridges, my bro in law has one, a big double door jobbie, and the freezer is tiny for the size of the fridge. There's an ice dispenser which takes up loads of space. Just make sure you compare capacity to what you already have for a guide.

    True that. It's like the cube trying to get the frozen shop in. Loads of room on the shelves for the tinny's though :icon_thumright:

    Do these add 200 quid to your annual electric bill?

    With Costco, if it breaks down at any point ever, take it back and get a replacement or full refund, nobody else offers this.

    My mate took back a 12 year old tele that stopped working, got a full refund. No qualms.

    Wicked!
