Smart Inverter Compressor vs Digital Inverter Compressor*

After looking at the table above, it is natural to have this question. What is the difference between a smart inverter compressor by LG and a digital inverter compressor used by Samsung?

Well, the simple answer is just the name. Both these compressors work by adjusting the cooling power of the refrigerator as per the needs.

E.g. – During the rush hours, you will need to open the refrigerator multiple time, in this scenario the refrigerator is provided with the extra cooling power to help maintain the temperature inside. While during the night time, the refrigerator does not need so much power, so the smart invertor compressor cuts down the cooling power of the machine.

This helps you save a lot of money over the years in terms of electricity costs. Have a look at the video by Samsung below to understand this technology better:

 

I think by now you would already have a fair idea about the refrigerator you will be buying. However, if you still have some confusion or need more details about a specific model, read the review of individual models below:
