1 Reason For
Quite Low Noise Level
The average noise level of freezers of this age and type is 41dB, and the noise levels range from 37dB to 48dB. The CVB20LP1 has a fairly low noise level (only 40 decibels) compared to most of the other freezers of this age and spec.
Freezers with a higher noise level that might also be worth looking at include the Liebherr GNP 2756 Premium (£793.91) (41dB and cheaper).
3 Reasons Against
We think this Smeg freezer looks expensive compared to other comparable spec freezers that have been around for more than two years. The price range of comparable spec freezers that have been around for more than two years is from £169 to £3,608.
Quite Small Gross Capacity
The CVB20LP1 has a fairly small gross capacity (only 197 liters) compared to most of the other medium net capacity freezers that have been on the market for around the same time as the CVB20LP1. The smallest gross capacity of medium net capacity freezers that were released more than two years ago is 150L and the largest is 360L.
Quite High Connected Load
The lowest connected load of freezers of a comparable age and type to the CVB20LP1 is 46W, the highest is 1,000W, and the average connected load is 140W. The Smeg CVB20LP1 has a quite high connected load (110 Watts) compared to most of the other freezers of a similar spec and age to the CVB20LP1.
5 Other reasons to consider the Smeg CVB20LP1
Running Costs Are OK
This freezer has an energy efficiency classification of A+, and the CVB20LP1 has an average running cost of £524 over 24 years based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which is typical compared to the other 119 freezers of this age and spec.
Released Over Two Years Ago
Smeg released the CVB20LP1 over two years ago.
With a height of 1,510 millimeter, the Smeg CVB20LP1 has a fairly average height compared to most of the other freezers of this type and age.
If you would consider a freezer with a taller height then you might want to look at the Bosch GSN36AI31 (£767.59) (1,860mm and cheaper), or the Liebherr GNP 2756 Premium (£793.91) (1,644mm and cheaper).
+3 Other reasons
At 600 millimeters, the Smeg CVB20LP1 has a pretty average width compared to most of the other medium net capacity freezers that have been around for a comparable time to the CVB20LP1.
Other 600mm wide freezers currently available that you might also want to consider include cheaper freezers such as the Liebherr GNP 2756 Premium (£793.91).
Freezers with a wider width that might also be worth looking at include the Bosch GSD36PI20 (£1,198.55) (600mm), or the Smeg CVB20LNE1 (£999.99) (600mm).
Average Storage Time During Power Failure
At 23 hours, the CVB20LP1 has a pretty standard storage time during power failure compared to most of the other medium net capacity freezers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the CVB20LP1.

Total running cost over 10 years
Running costs for this freezer have been estimated based on other similar freezers. If you know how much electricity and water the Smeg CVB20LP1uses then please let us know by entering those figures in the boxes above.
Running this freezer over 10 years will generate 2.6 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2).
To offset that much CO2 you would need to plant 67 tree seedlings and grow them for 10 years.
