From the top: Samsung’s fridge line-up receives new freezers

By Staff writers | 12:14 pm 08/02/2013

Few replace their fridges, running them until they’re literally dead or close to it. Fortunately, some new models are hitting stores this year, and Samsung is showing off a new line-up that brings a top-mount freezer as well as some other features.

Separating itself from what has been the trend in recent years, a new range of fridges will put the freezer back on top. Literally.

“The refrigerator is at the heart of the kitchen and with its new top mount range, Samsung brings powerful technology into the home, empowering Australian families to get more out of their appliances and enabling households to run more efficiently and harmoniously,” said Mike Lilly, Head of Home Appliances for Samsung Australia.

Samsung’s new range of fridges covers eight models, many of which feature similar technologies, but size, price, and finish.

Across the board, you’ll find a 3.5 star energy rating in Australia, with the new models including Samsung’s Digital Inverter Compressor, which can automatically adjust cooling speeds based on the demand of the fridge, changing the temperature depending on how often the door is opened with the eventual aim of a reduced energy bill.

There’s more lighting inside the fridges, too, with LEDs taking care of this, while Samsung’s MoistFresh Zone aims to provide better air circulation for fruit and veggies.

The new range of fridges starts at $699 for the 254 litre SR254MW and ranges all the way up to a 393 litre model (SR393MLS) for $1,149, with the other models (SR255MLS, SR319MW, SR320MLS, SR340MW, SR341MLS, SR392MW) joining them in electrical stores from February 11.
