I recently purchased a fridge freezer from them. Probably 5 weeks ago.
Took 4 days to arrive and the shipping was cheap. It arrived in excellent condition, not a mark on the outer cardboard box.
I purchased from them solely because an equivalent warehouse unit would cost ~$60-$75 to get delivered.
Very good value for money on purchase price alone. Works well, I can put a tray of mince in the freezer and its solid in 4 hours. Has lots of removable door shelving and came with extra like egg trays and ice cube trays.
I would recommend them.

Does it comply with the min energy performance standards? And have one of those energy rating stickers on it? As I has a customer who bought a gas hob from them. Which I had to refuse to install as it wasn't listed on the GASD database. (Im a gasfitter) They refused to believe me when I told them what they needed to do. Yet they got themselves sorted out after I reported them to Energy Safety. (Hmmmmmm, I wonder why?) Hopefully it was simply ignorance instead of a deliberate decision to not comply with the law.


When I was in China on a family holiday approx 15 years ago. Midea heatpumps were everywhere. Supposedly they are a very large company over there. So it may end up being a good brand. Best to ask someone who has recently come from China.
