Rated 4 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Phileas Very efficient, decent capacity frost free F/F. Bad points first: 1) Control buttons built into the display panel inside the very top of the fridge. This reduces the top shelf's usable height that is available in the centre at the front of the shelf. 2) Controls may be difficult to reach for shorter people as they are about 190cm from the floor. 3) Salad crisper drawer cannot be easily removed as it will not pass by the door's lowest basket, even with the door fully open with nothing preventing the door from opening to it's maximum. Either the door's lowest basket has to be emptied and removed or the glass shelf / cover to the salad drawer has to be emptied and removed to allow the drawer to be lifted out. Even lifting the drawer up at an angle will not allow it to clear the door drawer. 4) The fridge door is quite thick and greatly restricts access to the top freezer drawer which does not pull open very far. 5) Although the compressor is very quiet, one of the internal fans make a noticeable amount of noise. 6) The GBB530NSCFE uses about 70cm depth which may not suit some kitchens. 7) Door baskets are non adjustable and all full width, which reduces their usefulness a bit. In contrast the good points are: 1) Large easy to use handles that allow the doors to be opened easily. 2) Freezer drawers are all easily removed. 3) Freezer drawers slide very easily. 4) Large capacity "cold" drawer in the bottom of the fridge, which is great for keeping meat, fish, cheese etc. fresh much longer than would otherwise be possible. 5) Compressor very quiet. 6) Internal LED lighting in fridge effective. 7) Fridge has a large capacity. 8) All drawers feel much more "sturdy" than many other makes. 9) Freezer also has coated metal racks that can be used without the drawers to maximise the usable volume, or the racks may be removed to increase the volume available for the middle and bottom drawer. 10) Very stable temperatures in both fridge and freezer. 11) Large (16kg) daily fresh freezing capacity. 12) Linear compressor is quiet, efficient and has a 10 years warranty, so should be reliable. 13) Currently (June 2015) one of the largest capacity A+++ efficiency available, but with a small footprint and just 60cm width, maximising the space in the room. 14) Easy to clean shelves. 15) Completely frost free. 16) Bottom door basket is able to hold 2 litre carbonated drink bottles or bottles of wine etc with ease. Being 201cm tall, care needs to be taken if it is to be used in a room with a low ceiling. Overall the LG GB530NSCFE seems to be a quality product, made using good quality materials. It may not be the cheapest to buy, but with a bit of savvy shopping, they can be bought at a reasonable price. If you want an efficient frost free fridge freezer with a large fridge that includes not just a salad drawer, but a large capacity "cold" drawer, and has a medium capacity freezer with three drawers, then this LG is well worth considering. It is worth noting that the quoted freezer capacity may be less than that of some other brands, but many others do not have as much real life usable capacity as the LG! Please note I have no connection in any way with LG or with any company associated with LG or their retailers. Hope this review helps you! 09 June 2015
