||Soundbite by Günther Oettinger (in ENGLISH): If you take the new fridge, the new generation, A+++ and to compare it with maybe B, you need only a third of energy from this generation to the other; and so you maybe wait for two or three years and you have benefit for your own pocket, for your own budget.
