The freezer is located at the top and is divided by a sliding metal shelf into two compartments. The only disadvantage of the design is that the lower compartment is already upper.

Nord DX-221

A great device. A roomy, quiet and under the interior of the kitchen came up. First I wanted a three-compartment refrigerator, but I decided to save - I did not regret it. Inside the light is very conveniently located, so that it can not be blocked by products. There is a warning system if you forgot to close the door. If you ever have to buy this equipment again, choose "Nord".

Andrey, Tyumen


I regretted the choice, but it's worth paying tribute to the fact that the refrigerator is still working. It is necessary to indicate some advantages in the recall - it freezes well. It is impossible to store vegetables, they constantly drain water. The result - everything deteriorates, rots and further on the script. The backlight does not work anymore. Often, products are freezed to the wall - even for an ax, take it. Honestly, I will never buy the technique of this manufacturer.


Xenia, Arkhangelsk

An ordinary refrigerator, nothing special. Beautiful, silvery, in general, the kitchen looks very much even nothing. All shelves are easily removed, so you can wash without problems. Spacious, quiet, easily defrosted. I did not notice any shortcomings, all the details are qualitative. For three years I have never broken. The shelves and containers are made of durable glass and plastic. Normal equipment for little money.

Diana, Krasnodar

"Nord" I liked right away, affordable price and quality is not bad. After six months of work, it happens, the compressor hums and does not shut down. This is still the only problem. Given the low price, pleased with the power and capacity. Dimensions and appearance came under the kitchen. The shelves can be adjusted and set to the desired height. A good technique, if you do not take into account the failures in the compressor.

We can say that the equipment fully justifies its price. Like all manufacturers, the company has popular and not very successful models. Buy a technique or not, it's up to you. If you are looking for a profitable offer, feel free to choose Nord.
