Belarusian refrigerators firmly hold the leading position in sales among other similar models in the middle price category. The most popular brand is "Atlant". These refrigerators are not only reliable, but also diverse in design: steel, pink, red, cream and models with a pattern.
All brand refrigerators "Atlant" have their own cold air distribution system in the refrigerator and freezer. Despite the fact that in the technical characteristics it is labeled as "No Frost", in fact significant changes have been made to it. The cold air in the device is distributed as if it were circulating in a natural cold room. This allows you to divide the refrigerating chamber into zones with different temperatures for each type of product.
High energy saving (А and А + class), low noise of the work of Belarusian refrigerators is the result of the operation of one compressor, which with the help of a pulsed valve distributes refrigerant flows between two chambers. The absence of additional parts is a reduction in the cost of the product for the consumer.
All models of refrigerators Atlant allow you to weigh the doors from one side to another. Very handy if you plan a permutation or relocation.
The warranty period of the refrigerator is 10 years, but even after this period, the user can not worry about the repair and maintenance of household appliances. For all models of refrigerators discontinued, spare parts and accessories have been produced for 10 years. Masters of repairing household appliances in one voice note that these refrigerators are the rarest guests in the service.
Comparison of models
For comparison, the most popular models from the Belarusian manufacturer with certain identical parameters were selected: two chambers, the same width and depth, one type of refrigerant - R600a (isobutane), electromechanical control type, defrosting of the freezer chamber, minimum temperature - 18 degrees.
Atlant XM 4008-022
This model is the most inexpensive, its retail price starts at 13,200 rubles. The case of the device 142 cm high is made of metal and plastic, the color of the case is white. The volume of the refrigerator compartment is 168 liters, the freezing capacity is 76 liters. The freezer is located at the bottom. Among all the models, this is the most energy-saving, electricity consumption is reduced to 292 kWh / year. True, the weight of frozen products for one day does not exceed 3 kg. The freezer and refrigeration chambers are served by one compressor, so the noise level does not exceed 39 dB. The cold storage time is 17 hours.
According to users, the main drawback of this model is the low quality of plastic in the freezer and vegetable compartment boxes. They break very quickly because of the large weight, so you have to glue them together. They also note the need to carefully monitor the drainage of water. If they become clogged, there is a risk of fluid leaking into the freezer and the formation of corrosion.
But in general, for such a price - this is an ideal option for a family of 2 people.
Atlant МХМ 2835-90
This model is not lower than 14 200 rubles, has an upper freezer and a great height - 163 cm. The case is also made of metal and plastic, the volume of the freezer is 70 liters, which is typical for models with the top location. However, despite the smaller volume, the freezer is able to freeze up to 4.5 kg of meat per day. Annual energy consumption is 332 kWh / year, and the time it takes to keep the device cold is 20 hours.
Users note a flaw in the freezer - the lack of a door for each compartment. It is impossible to mix odorous products with ordinary ones, ice cream or fruit acquire the smell of meat and fish. The standard problem of all "Atlants" is a compartment for eggs for 8 pieces, not for 10. Its model corresponds to its 41 dB, but in some instances there are extraneous noises due to the gurgling of the refrigerant in the tubes. The doors open hard, sticking to the body.
At the same time, the refrigerator has a firm rating of 4.0.
Atlant XM 6023-031
Model with two compressors and a height of 195 cm, the price of which starts from 21,500 rubles. The strangest thing is that the device case is made of plastic without metal parts. The power consumption is 391 kWh / year, but, thanks to a personal compressor in the freezer, it can freeze 15 kg of products per day. That is, the freezer can be hammered under the string and not worry that it will not freeze. The volume of the freezer is 154 liters, which is quite significant if you choose a model for a family with children. The volume of the refrigerator is also rather big - 250 liters.
Additional "chip" - the sound of an open door. On the one hand, this is good - you will not forget to close it, but in the process of washing the refrigerator it can be terribly annoying.
Despite the declared 40 dB of noise, the refrigerant gurgles strongly in the refrigerating chamber. The problem can be solved by a simple foam gasket between the filter, the tube and the radiator. But, of course, this is a manufacturer defect. Some users note uncomfortable lattices in the freezer, which put the boxes. They rattle when pushing. But this does not affect the functionality, so it is not a significant drawback. User Rating 4.5.
Atlant XM 6025-031
The height of this model is 205 cm, while the freezer is located at the bottom and has 4 compartments. The refrigerator has two compressors, so the freezing speed is fast. For 2 hours, it will easily freeze a small piece of meat, which is pleasant to those who monitor the quality of products. During the day, he easily grabs 15 kg of products. In addition, the model has a function of super-freezing. It is also equipped with an uncomfortable container for 8 eggs, with a signal from an open door 20 seconds after opening, but it has the highest power consumption of 412 kWh / year.
The disadvantage noted by most users is the lack of information on the compliance of the cooling scale (from 1 to 7) degrees Celsius. Choose the temperature has to empirically. The rest of the refrigerator does not cause complaints and has a well-deserved rating of 4 points.
Refrigerators from Belarus - quality and cheaper counterparts of European models. Compressors for them are made in the country, and not purchased in China, so their quality is much higher.
