Good points:
I bought this fridge/freezer because of the configuration of the fridge and the large capacity. I love the fact that you have the really wide shelves compared to many other models which are quite narrow so you can always fit in large plates etc if you need too. I didn't want an icemaker dispenser in the door as you lose room internally so this is perfect as you still have the water dispenser and the ice maker is in the freezer below. Active Smart features are definitely making food last longer on the salad bins. Some reviews say the water dispenser drips but we have not experienced this at all. It moves easily as it is on wheels so no problem about changing filter. I love it and am really pleased.
Bad points:
These aren't bad points but points to consider:

My one concern before purchasing was the external water filter as this has to be connected to a wall or cupboard so you do need to ensure you have room and easy access as it needs changing every 6 months. This wasn't really a problem though once we got it and was easy to fit. The fridge is on wheels so it is easily moved if you need to move it..

The freezer compartment is great as a drawer and does hold a fair amount but if it's your only freezer then you need to consider if there's enough space. I bought it more for the fridge capacity.

Good points:
Fantastic Fridge Freezer with a large Fridge, which really suits our family. I am impressed with the build quality. Every thing feels like it is built to last. We looked at a lot of different types of American style Fridge Freezers and this was by far the best one we saw. On so many of the others the fridge door was taken up with a large water chiller. This one has lots of user friendly storage compartments and it is not too tall, which enables the top shelves to be easily accessed. They are expensive but we think it is a quality item and worth the money

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
only had it 3 weeks so energy consumption not known . Really pleased with the design . You seem to get big american fridge style on the top so wide shelves and the 4 drawers keep everything tidy with and good size freezer below .The ice maker only makes 8 cubes over 3 hours but leave it on and the container soon fills up, chilled water is great . Really happy with product so far

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic solid design with no wasted space. Most fridge/freezers waste space with the ice maker and water dispenser. The Fisher Paykel uses very clever design to minimise the space that these take up. The freezer (which is the coldest part) is at the bottom where it should be. The drawer pulls out so you do not lose the cold air as you do with conventional side by side doors. A well made, high quality appliance.
Bad points:
Such good design costs money. I felt the extra cost was justified but this is not a cheap appliance

Manufacturer's Description

An exciting new refrigerator that leads the market in features yet with useable refrigerator and freezer space superior to that of similar sized alternatives. Automatic ice making, chilled filtered water on tap and strong extendable storage drawers make this the complete appliance.

  • Active Smart® has two variable speed fans which provide faster cooling and freezing with an even temperature throughout each level. Active Smart continuously adjust the flow of cold air based on daily use and climatic conditions, ensuring it quickly reaches the safe temperature for maintaining freshness.
  • Roll out Freezer drawer
  • The Humidity Control System is a slide control which combines with the Humidity Control Lid. This system enables humidity customisation in each side of the fruit and vegetable bin.
  • Enjoy the healthy benefits of cold, filtered water at the touch of a button though a fully plumbed in water dispenser. Because this dispenser takes up no room in the door, you still have maximum space for food storage.
  • Clean, crisp ice cubes on demand with no impact on useable space. Ice making volume can be customised to your lifestyle and we’ve even included an ice scoop for hygienic use of your cubes.
  • All Active Smarts features can be accessed through the external controls. Freezer Chill provides rapid freezing and Bottle Chill offers a timed chilling function.
