    Sellers' market ATM. Only issue I ever had with Applianesonline was their reluctance to provide proof of purchase for warranty.
    If you can get a good deal, then why not save some money. Unfortunately, current products are not what they once were. Quality is non-existent.
    I do QC on the new stuff and it's frightening how poor the quality is.
    Recently tried to reject a whole delivery due to four failures from one batch. Overlords intervened and the product was released due to marketing and pre-sales.
    So it goes, technical opinions matter little when serious coin is involved.

    Buying a quality Fridge nowadays.

    I bought a Mitsubishi Fridge - Multi French door type from HN about 4yrs ago.
    Came with a standard 5yr warranty - Made in Japan.
    But wasn't cheap - $3500. However the quality is superb IMO.

    When the delivery guys plugged it in, the guy at the rear inside the fridge area had just put the plug in, asked the guy in front if it was working.
    It was that quiet he thought it wasn't working.
    The guy in front replied yes, as the lights were on..

    The tech of this super duper 'sun light' LED in the veggie area (lowest shelf/draw), does seem to work. There's a remarkable difference from the old fridge in how long stuff lasts in it.
    So not an ad guys. Just saying that quality can be found, but one has to pay.

    Had to get the old queen a new fridge last year. An Electrolux (which was a Westinghouse model), were both made in the same factory! Only the outer door handles were different. The quality ($2700), wasn't good IMO.

    Japanese made refrigerators have always been of superior quality. Once upon a time I worked for SHARP and they made superb products.
    Sadly, the Chinese and Koreans intervened with cheaply made goods and the customers voted with their wallets.
