3 Reasons For

Quite Large Net Fridge Capacity

The net fridge capacities of medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than a year ago range from 140L to 260L. At 229 liters, the FA860PS has a quite large net fridge capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers that have been available for a similar time to the FA860PS.

Chart Edit

Short

Fridge freezers of a similar type and age to the FA860PS have heights of between 620mm and 2,100mm, and the average height is 1,800mm. At only 1,800 millimeter, the FA860PS is fairly short compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for a comparable time to the FA860PS.

If you would consider a fridge with a taller height then you might want to look at the CUfr 3311 (£499.00) (1,812mm), or the CU 3311 (£389.99) (1,810mm) both from Liebherr.

Four Door Balconies

The Smeg FA860PS is a four door balcony fridge freezer. Most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for around the same time as the FA860PS have between two and five door balconies.

13 Reasons Against

Poor Brand

We checked the expert and user reviews of hundreds of fridge freezers to determine an average rating for each fridge freezer brand. On average fridges from Smeg have poor reviews from experts and owners.

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

The FA860PS has a quite small net freezer capacity (only 75 liters) compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for a comparable time to the FA860PS. The net freezer capacities of comparable spec fridges that were launched around the same time as the FA860PS range from 34L to 120L.

If this medium total net capacity fridge freezer net freezer capacity is not large enough for you then you might want to look at the Gorenje NRK 6191 GX (£339.00) (85L).

Running Costs Are Very High

Whilst this Smeg fridge has an energy efficiency classification of A+, the FA860PS is one of the least economic to run fridges of this spec and age that we have analysed for 24 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the FA860PS is £684.

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Like most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that are a comparable age to the FA860PS, the FA860PS does not have a water filter.

We compared this fridge to all the other fridges with a water filter and we think the KG36DVI30G (£585.00), or the KG36WXL30G both from Siemens is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Like most of the other fridges that have been available for a similar time to the FA860PS, the FA860PS does not have an air filter.

Alternative fridge freezers which also have an air filter that you might also want to look at include the Whirlpool BSNF 8151 (£499.00), or the Bosch KGE36DL41 (£796.22).

Very Small Freezer Capacity

The average freezer capacity of fridges of a comparable spec and age to the FA860PS is 7.6kg/24h, and the freezer capacities range from 2kg/24h to 17kg/24h. The Smeg FA860PS has a fairly small freezer capacity (only 4 kilograms per 24 hours) compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for a similar time to the FA860PS.

Chart Edit

The average minimum operating temperature of medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the FA860PS is 10°C, and the minimum operating temperatures range from -38°C to 16°C.
