Consumer Reports divides the reviews for quiet refrigerators into types. For those who like the four-door bottom freezer style, the top picks are the Samsung Chef Collection RF34H9960S4, which costs about $5,400, and the Samsung T9000 RF32FMQDBSR, which costs about $3,500.
When looking at the three-door bottom freezer styles, Consumer Reports chooses the Kenmore 7160, at $1,700, as a best buy and also mentions the LG LFX32945ST, which costs about $3,000, as an excellent choice for noise reduction.
An excellent option for people seeking a conventional bottom freezer style is the LG LDC24370ST, which is $1,650.
