Samsung RB31FDJNDBC review
|Review: April 2016|
In a nutshell: The Samsung model RB31FDJNDBC/EU fridge-freezer in black gloss finish looks stunning. This tall fridge-freezer offers plenty of storage space, especially in its large freezer section, with the added convenience of a no-plumb chilled water dispenser. It's exceptionally quiet to run, and comes with a full 10-year warranty on its compressor. If you compare prices carefully on this appliance, you'll find that it offers exceptional value for money!
Today's best buy: Samsung RB31FDJNDBC Black from Currys (£469.99)
Design & features
The Samsung RB31FDJNDBC black fridge freezer certainly makes a bold first impression with its gloss black finish. It looks very futuristic, with a blue LED temperature display and chilled water dispenser embedded in the fridge door.
It's a solidly-built appliance, and its gloss surface is easy to wipe clean, although it can attract fingerprints and cosmetic scratches. The build quality isn't quite up to Samsung's highest standards - for instance the door handles are plastic. Usefully, the doors can be installed to open either way, so the design is fully reversible.
The interior space is quite generous, although the chilled water reservoir in the door limits the available door space. The water dispenser isn't plumbed, so the water tank needs to be kept topped up manually. On a more positive note, that makes the appliance easy to install.
The fridge section comprises a deep salad drawer and four tempered glass shelves above. There's a dairy compartment at the top of the fridge door, and also a wine shelf that can be fitted into the main section.
The freezer space is very big, and the extra-large freezer drawers extend all the way for easy access. The freezer also includes an ice-making facility.
The appliance is completely frost free and is lit from above with bright LED interior lighting.
Efficiency, noise & reliability
The RB31FDJNDBC fridge freezer uses a digital inverter compressor, and this makes it efficient and quiet. The machine is rated A+ for energy efficiency, using 297kWh of electricity per annum. It runs at an exceptionally quiet 39dB, and is one of the very quietest kitchen appliances you can buy. You'll hardly know that it's running!
As well as being energy efficient and quiet, the digital inverter compressor should give many years of trouble-free operation, and comes with a full 10-year warranty.
Conclusion - stunning looks, high quality
This Samsung model RB31FDJNDBC fridge-freezer certainly won't find a place in every kitchen, but if your colour-scheme requires black appliances, then this is a highly recommended model.
Its top features are its design and looks, super-quiet operation, and the built-in no-plumb water dispenser. It's easy to keep clean too, and offers plenty of storage space.
Do be sure to compare prices before you buy, as the price of this model can vary considerably. If you can find it a good price, it's excellent value for money!

Very annoying fridge. Supplied with wine rack that doesn't fit (?). Called out two repairmen to try to fix an annoying buzzing noise, but both were clueless and it wasn't fixed. To describe this fridge as quiet is laughable, the buzzing was very irritating. Do not buy.
