Samsung Technology Delivers Innovative New Top Mount Freezer

Samsung Technology Delivers Innovative New Top Mount Freezer
Superior energy performance & cooling performance from new digital inverter compressor

Auckland, New Zealand – Samsung announces its new Top Mount Freezer, unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) earlier this year, will be available in New Zealand from mid-February.

The new addition to Samsung’s Whitegoods line-up features the innovative Digital Inverter Compressor which automatically adjusts cooling speed in response to temperature fluctuations for more energy efficiency*.

The result is a 3.5 energy star rating for a powerful refrigerator with a top-mount freezer that is both durable and convenient.

Tura Gim, Whitegoods Product Manager for Samsung Electronics New Zealand, says the new refrigerator affirms Samsung’s dedication to providing appliance innovations that deliver unparalleled performance, greater flexibility and more convenience for today’s busy families.

“At Samsung, we pride ourselves on predicting what our consumers will need and we believe our new Top Mount Freezer delivers real solutions to everyday challenges,” he says.

“It is these sorts of insights that enable Samsung to develop features such as the Digital Inverter Compressor, which keep the refrigerator working smoothly and minimise wear to extend product life.”

The new Samsung Top Mount Freezer will be available from selected retailers nationwide from 11 February 2013. RRP$899–$1,399.

Durability, Reliability and Energy Efficiency

The Digital Inverter Compressor improves energy efficiency and cooling performance by automatically adjusting across five speeds of revolutions per minute (RPM) in response to cooling demands. Reacting to such things as frequent door openings, a hot plate of food or outside temperature changes, the intelligent compressor either rapidly provides cold air, or slows down cooling to reduce energy consumption.

The compressor operates only when needed, producing less noise and also comes with a 10-year parts warranty from Samsung.

The Moist Fresh Zone works to control air circulation to maintain optimal humidity, creating an ideal environment to store fresh vegetables and fruit for a longer period of time.

Space Efficiency and Convenience Features

The Easy Slide Shelf is specially designed for effortless food storage and removal; the shelf slides in and out enabling more efficient organisation and use of space.

Samsung’s new Top Mount Freezer also comes with a wider and deeper door shelf to accommodate large bottles.

A high-efficiency LED light illuminates the new model interior more brightly than conventional models, while a modern style Easy Handle is recessed for streamlined design.
