Videocon’s S 091 DX refrigerator – Price and Review

Williams bough this fridge about a week back and we wanted to cover it on aavaas. The main criteria for Williams was that he didn’t want a big unit. He is a single guy and his requirements are very limited. The main use for the fridge would be to store beverages, some bakery items and cold water. So purchasing a standard 160 0r 180 litres model would not have made any sense. Also the space constraints at his place prompted him to look for a small model.

Surprisingly, in India, there are only two companies which make sub 100 litre models. One is Videocon and the other is Haier. The former is easily available though.

We purchased the unit at NEXT shop at Usman Road in T-Nagar. The unit cost was close to 6000 rupees if I am not mistaken and the special offer gave us a steam iron from an unknown brand along with the unit – FREE.

Review

The unit is not an excellent value for money. For about 2000 rupees more you can get a standard 160 litres fridge. The space inside is not that great either. We will try to post some pictures of the interior later on. The bottle rack can hold only one litre bottles and that too only 3 at the most. The bigger bottles such as 1.5 and 2 litres are impossible to accommodate inside.

The unit only came with one ice tray than the two which is mentioned on the website. The cooling of the unit is ok. It has an inbuilt voltage stabilizer. So there is no need for a separate one. The compressor is visible from the behind and there is plenty of gap at the back. This could be a great place for pests if you are not careful.

There is a small cooling adjusting knob inside the fridge which allows you to select your preference. In the centre there is a defrost button (red color) which would shut the compressor off and thaw the ice which has formed in the freezer compartment.

The quality of plastics inside is average and could have been more solid. There is also a dedicated egg shelf. I think it can hold around 6 eggs. There is also a small vegetable tray available.

The unit has an energy efficient compressor. It operates between 135 V to 145 V hereby consuming less power and better energy efficiency ratio.

The unit has a 6 year warranty.
