Are you really trying to brag about something like this on RFD, a bargains forum where people try to save the smallest penny? What possibly made you think this was a good idea?

Frigidaire is crappier. Cheaply built and unbelievably loud, can't even imagine how something like that could be designed and pass quality control. Sounds like a Harrier jet taking off. Maybe they were built for deaf people. Avoid Frigidaire at all cost.

Wow. I thought the opposite of Frigidaire. Heard good things about them. I'm in the market for a new fridge as my SamDung is almost dead.

What I've come to learn when looking at appliances

Initial: "Avoid [Brand X] is terrible, had one for 3 years before it died. Avoid at all costs. Got [Brand Y] no problems since"

Counter: "My parents had [Brand x] and it's still going for 20 years (unlike their marriage). I got [Brand Y] and it cost me $X to repair it, once it has another problem it's gone and I'll never get one again"

Found appliance prices jumped 50-60% higher than 2019, inflation is already here.

certainly not bragging, genuinely didn't know they still made top freezer fridges...as someone else mentioned, if you are tall it is way more annoying to have the freezer on top, in my opinion.
My phone plan is $400 a month for 500 MB of data.
My internet plan is $199.99 for capped internet and slow speeds.
My credit cards are the ones with annual fees but terrible rewards.
Did I RFD correctly?

Haven't seen that at all. Where are you shopping?

18 cu. ft. Frigidaire SS exterior at Costco sells for $749.

Amana 4.0 cu. ft. top-load washer is $500, which is around 10% more expensive than 2017.

Don't know where you shop but all the appliance stores sell top freezer fridges.

I must be shopping at budget places... to fit my budget home.

Yep, anecdotal experiences are worth about nothing when it comes to reliability. What matters instead is large-scale studies and surveys, which you won't find on RFD, or the opinions of experts in the field who repair these kinds of things.

If you take a look at the compressors in the fridges made in the last 15 years - they are 'energy efficient' - and about the size of a very large softball. They may be 'energy efficient' but they are not 'long for this world'. Which is good - for the manufacturers.

The older 'energy hog' compressors were the size of a basketball - and lasted forever... which was bad for the manufacturers. These old fridges worked forever ... hence their use as a basement or garage 'beer fridge' long after they get removed from the kitchen.

Older fridges also tended to have the heat releasing coils mounted vertically on the entire back side of the unit ... using natural convection to release the heat (no fan needed) - while the newer fridges have the coils stuffed underneath the fridge (just below that bottom mount freezer) - and require a fan (and regular cleaning of the dust bunnies coming off the floor) to work properly.

Also newer refrigerants require higher pressure. That's why newer fridges are louder and fail sooner.
