1 Reason For
Quite Low Noise Level
At only 40 decibels, the Smeg CVB20RNE1 has a quite low noise level compared to most of the other medium net capacity freezers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the CVB20RNE1. The lowest noise level of freezers of this type and age is 37dB, the highest is 48dB, and the average noise level is 41dB.
Alternative freezers with a higher noise level that you might want to look at include the CVB20LR1 (£1,098.90) (40dB), the CVB20RP1 (£1,048.00) (40dB), or the CVB20RR1 (£999.97) (40dB) all from Smeg.
3 Reasons Against
Price Has Increased by £47.03
The price of the CVB20RNE1 has increased by £47.03 in the last 44 days.
We checked 84 comparable spec freezers that came out more than two years ago and they range in price from £169 to £3,608. We think that this medium net capacity freezer looks expensive compared to other comparable spec freezers that came out more than two years ago.
Quite Small Gross Capacity
The smallest gross capacity of freezers of a comparable age and spec to the CVB20RNE1 is 150L, the largest is 360L, and the average gross capacity is 220L. With a gross capacity of only 197 liters, the CVB20RNE1 has one of the smaller gross capacities amongst medium net capacity freezers of this age.
5 Other reasons to consider the Smeg CVB20RNE1
Running Costs Are OK
This medium net capacity freezer has an energy efficiency rating of A+, and the CVB20RNE1 is typical compared to the other 119 freezers that have been around for more than two years that we have looked at for 24 year running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the CVB20RNE1 is £524.
Released Over Two Years Ago
This freezer has been on the market for over two years.
The CVB20RNE1 has a fairly average height (1,510 millimeter) compared to most of the other freezers of a similar spec and age to the CVB20RNE1.
If you are not worried about having a taller height then you might also want to consider the CVB20LR1 (£1,098.90) (1,510mm), the CVB20RP1 (£1,048.00) (1,510mm), or the CVB20RR1 (£999.97) (1,510mm) all from Smeg.
+3 Other reasons
At 600 millimeters, the CVB20RNE1 has a fairly average width compared to most of the other freezers that have been available for around the same time as the CVB20RNE1.
There are a number of other 600mm wide freezers currently available that you might also want to look at including cheaper freezers such as the Smeg CVB20LP1 (£770.00).
Other freezers with a wider width that you might want to look at include the CVB20LR1 (£1,098.90) (600mm), or the CVB20RP1 (£1,048.00) (600mm) both from Smeg.
Average Storage Time During Power Failure
The Smeg CVB20RNE1 has a pretty average storage time during power failure (23 hours) compared to most of the other freezers that have been on the market for more than two years.
If this Smeg freezer storage time during power failure is not long enough for you then you might want to look at the Electrolux EUX2245AO (£899.00) (24h and cheaper), the Bauknecht GKN 17F4 (£777.50) (24h and cheaper), or the AEG A52700GNW1 (£793.35) (28h and cheaper).

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 CVB20RNE1uses 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.
