Product Review: Haier HC27SF22RB 2.7 Cubic Feet Refrigerator/Freezer
Price Range: $150 – $200
Who Would Buy This: Those shopping for a basic, compact refrigerator/freezer for cooling drinks and perishables.
Style-wise, the Haier HC27SF22RB has an eye-catching all black exterior, which looks uber sleek and modern. The reversible door has a recessed handle. This model would look fantastic in any dorm room, bedroom or office where you want a refrigerator that has a sleek, but low-key appearance.
It’s flat-back design maximizes space so you can fit it closer to the wall than traditional style fridges. If you want to put this refrigerator in an area with limited space, you’ll appreciate this feature.
It comes with two adjustable front levelling legs, which come in handy to help stabilize the appliance on slightly uneven surfaces.
Inside, this refrigerator/freezer has a 2.7 cubic feet capacity. It has no interior light, but this shouldn’t be a problem for most, given the small size of this model.
There are two full-width glass shelves, which are removable for easy cleaning. Door storage is catered for by two full-width door shelves. The lower door shelf can hold three 2-liter sized bottles. The upper door shelf is slimmer in depth, so it isn’t suitable for drinks storage, other than very small cans.
At the top is a half-width freezer compartment which has a 0.3 cubic feet capacity. It comes with a small ice cube tray. This freezer is only designed for short term storage of frozen foods for up to 5 days.
In the upper left of the interior there is a small manual thermostat which allows you to adjust the temperature from a level of 1-7, or switch it off.

Guarantee: 1-year warranty. 5-year warranty on sealed system.
The Haier HC27SF22RB Refrigerator/Freezer is a good choice for the budget-conscious who want a sleek compact refrigerator that has plenty of interior space and runs reasonably quietly.
All in all, Haier have produced an appliance which functions well and looks the part, but it’s weak point is that it’s freezer is very small and limited, so if you’re serious about keeping foods frozen long term then we advise you consider another model.
