  • Haier units are VERY QUIET, are known for their RELIABLE PERFORMANCE, and for simple SPACE SAVING DESIGN which makes them easy to store anywhere.

  • Haier units also come in VARIOUS FINISHES, and you can choose among plain white or black or colorful CUSTOMIZED FINISHES.

  • The units are PERFECT for families of two, dorm rooms and apartments.

  • With its small COMPACT DESIGN Haier has surprisingly achieved relatively LARGE INNER SPACES for maximum STORAGE.

  • Haier freezers are DURABLE and WORK PERFECTLY WELL even after long periods of shipping.

  • They work right out of the box, SIMPLE ASSEMBLY of wirings required and cool stored items fast.


  • Because Haier produces SMALL and COMPACT UNITS those looking for regular stand-alone freezers to accommodate a regular family may not find what they are looking for in Haier freezers.

  • Haier has a less-than-desired reputation for PACKAGING its units so that some orders tend to arrive at customer's doorsteps with dents.

  • There could be problems with the DEFROST SYSTEM in some models.

  • Some customers report of a loud GURGLING SOUND every time the unit kicks in, and the sound can be pretty loud.

  • Finally, units tend to LOOK FLIMSY and NOT VERY WELL-MADE, which is a major disadvantage for some.
