First post so please be kind!

Expensive if you're after a simple Fridge Freezer - but these huge american style freezers are superb for bigger families.

This has recently been discontinued by Samsung - but sold only 2 months ago for over £800 in Comet and Currys.

It went on offer in Makro this morning at £399+vat - and it is nationwide, however apparently each store only received around 6-10 of these.

They are collection only (not delivered) but will fit in a large estate car or small van.

Cheapest online seems to be £569 + delivery so a saving of at least £100 over next cheapest.

There were 2 left at Makro Bristol when we left at 9:30. Stock code: 351217 if anyone needs to call their shop to check stock.

Energy A rated.

Forgot to mention it has a 24 month manufacturers warranty also - not sure if this is the norm for fridges but used to getting just 1 year on most appliances...
Good price, although personally I would pay the additional for one of these with the water filter and built in beverage system/ice machine.
Be wary of Samsung fridge freezers. Mine has been broken for 3 months (9 months out of warranty) and the Samsung approved engineers have yet to fix it (despite charging me about £180).
According to Which, Samsung have below-average brand reliability so it isn't just me.
Beko seem to be one of the better budget brands for reliability. LG were top, Samsung 3rd from bottom.
I bought this exact model in Feb 2009 and it broke within 3 months. Unrepairable said the samsung engineer but took samsung 6 months to collect and refund. Absolute nightmare customer service. We had to threaten small claims court action. Oh and BTW .. we had to make an appointment jst to speak with customer service :x I went for a daewoo similar model after and have had no probs so far
Good price, but they do have a terrible reputation for reliability - search on here for the last Samsung deal as loads of people mentioned problems.
