Midea is also a relatively unknown brand in Australia. I have lately seen their advertisements as I drive down the freeway so they seem to be picking up steam down under. This Midea cheap fridge freezer combo will give you a total volume of 207L. That being split by a 140L fridge and a 67L freezer. So this model is a little smaller than the Haier and its also white. Hence it still gives great value for money, in the end $429 dollars is cheap for any new fridge or freezer. The Midea MTM207W also comes with a 2 year warranty.
