1 Reason For
Quite Low Noise Level
At only 40 decibels, the Smeg CVB20RR1 has a quite low noise level compared to most of the other freezers that came out more than two years ago. Across all the comparable spec freezers that are a similar age to the CVB20RR1 the noise levels range from 37dB to 48dB, and the average noise level is 41dB.
If you would consider a freezer with a higher noise level then you might want to look at the CVB20LNE1[pl_2124503_price] (40dB), the CVB20LP1[pl_2146888_price] (40dB), or the CVB20LR1[pl_2324534_price] (40dB) all from Smeg.
2 Reasons Against
We checked 91 freezers of a similar age and type and they range in price from £159 to £3,608. We think that this Smeg freezer looks expensive compared to other freezers of a similar age and type.
Quite Small Gross Capacity
With a gross capacity of only 197 liters, the CVB20RR1 has one of the smaller gross capacities amongst medium net capacity freezers of this age. The smallest gross capacity of medium net capacity freezers that are a similar age to the CVB20RR1 is 160L and the largest is 360L.
5 Other reasons to consider the Smeg CVB20RR1
Average Running Costs
This freezer is rated A+ for energy efficiency. The CVB20RR1 is typical compared to the other 124 freezers of a comparable spec and age that we have assessed for 24 year running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the CVB20RR1 is £525.
Released Over Two Years Ago
Smeg released the CVB20RR1 over two years ago.
At 600 millimeters, the CVB20RR1 has a fairly standard width compared to most of the other freezers of a similar age and type to the CVB20RR1.
We compared all the other 600mm wide freezers to this freezer and we think cheaper freezers such as the GSN36AI31[pl_1649218_price], and the GSN36BI30[pl_1724028_price] both from Bosch or the Siemens GS36NAI31[plb_1649205_price] is also worth considering.
+3 Other reasons
With a height of 1,510 millimeter, the CVB20RR1 has a relatively average height compared to most of the other freezers of a comparable age and spec to the CVB20RR1.
If you would consider a freezer with a taller height then you might want to look at the CVB20LP1[pl_2146888_price] (1,510mm), the CVB20LNE1[pl_2124503_price] (1,510mm), or the CVB20LR1[pl_2324534_price] (1,510mm) all from Smeg.
Average Storage Time During Power Failure
At 23 hours, the CVB20RR1 has a fairly standard storage time during power failure compared to most of the other freezers that have been on the market for more than two years.
If you want a longer storage time during power failure then you might also want to consider the Electrolux EUX2245AO[plb_2340149_price] (24h), or the Bauknecht GKN 17F4[plb_2475690_price] (24h) which is also 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.
