1 Reason For
Quite Low Noise Level
Across all the similar spec freezers that came out more than two years ago the noise levels range from 37dB to 48dB. With a noise level of only 40 decibels, the CVB20RR1 has one of the lower noise levels amongst medium net capacity freezers of this age.
It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 40dB noise level freezers currently available including the Smeg CVB20RNE1 (£1,004.00) which is cheaper.
If you are not concerned about having a higher noise level then you might also want to consider the CVB20LR1 (£1,098.90) (40dB), or the CVB20RP1 (£1,048.00) (40dB) both from Smeg.
2 Reasons Against
The cheapeast freezers of this type and age that we found costs £169 and the most expensive costs £3,608. We think that this freezer looks expensive for a medium net capacity freezer that was launched more than two years ago.
Quite Small Gross Capacity
The CVB20RR1 has a quite small gross capacity (only 197 liters) compared to most of the other freezers of this spec and age. The average gross capacity of freezers that were released more than two years ago is 220L, and the gross capacities range from 150L to 360L.
5 Other reasons to consider the Smeg CVB20RR1
Running Costs Are OK
The efficiency rating of this Smeg freezer is A+. Based on typical energy prices we estimate that the CVB20RR1 will cost £524 over 24 years to run, which is typical compared to the other 119 freezers of this type and age.
Released Over Two Years Ago
This freezer has been on the market for over two years.
At 1,510 millimeter, the Smeg CVB20RR1 has a pretty standard height compared to most of the other freezers of this type and age.
There are a number of alternative 1,510mm high freezers currently available which you might want to look at including the Smeg CVB20RNE1 (£1,004.00) which is cheaper.
Freezers with a taller height that might be worth looking at include the CVB20LR1 (£1,098.90) (1,510mm), or the CVB20RP1 (£1,048.00) (1,510mm) both from Smeg.
+3 Other reasons
At 600 millimeters, the CVB20RR1 has a fairly standard width compared to most of the other medium net capacity freezers that were released around the same time as the CVB20RR1.
There are a number of alternative 600mm wide freezers currently available which you might also want to consider including the CVB20LP1 (£770.00), or the CVB20RNE1 (£1,004.00) both from Smeg which is cheaper.
Freezers with a wider width that might also be worth considering include the Smeg CVB20LR1 (£1,098.90) (600mm).
Average Storage Time During Power Failure
With a storage time during power failure of 23 hours, the CVB20RR1 has a relatively average storage time during power failure compared to most of the other medium net capacity freezers that are a comparable age to the CVB20RR1.
We compared all the other 23h storage time during power failure freezers to this freezer and we think cheaper freezers such as the Smeg CVB20RNE1 (£1,004.00) is also worth considering.
If you are looking for a freezer with a longer storage time during power failure then you might also want to consider the Electrolux EUX2245AO (£899.00) (24h and cheaper), the Bauknecht GKN 17F4 (£777.50) (24h and cheaper), or the AEG A52700GNW1 (£784.64) (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 CVB20RR1uses 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.
