15 Reasons Against

Smeg Only Has Poor Reviews for Its Fridges

Smeg is one of the less good fridge freezer manufacturers according to average user and expert review score data that we have collected for all fridge freezers.

Not Cheap

We think this Smeg fridge freezer looks expensive compared to other fridges of a comparable type and age. The price range of fridges of a comparable type and age is from £109 to £1,750.

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

Fridge freezers of a comparable spec and age to the FAB28LCS1 have net freezer capacities of between 16L and 240L. The net freezer capacity of the FAB28LCS1 of only 26 liters is one of the smallest amongst fridges that were released more than two years ago.

If this Smeg fridge freezer net freezer capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the ICBP 3256[pl_1981732_price] (58L), or the ICBS 3214[pl_1981733_price] (58L) both from Liebherr or the AEG SCZ81800F0[plb_1988828_price] (47L) which is also cheaper.

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

With a storage time during power failure of only 12 hours, the Smeg FAB28LCS1 has one of the shorter storage times during power failure amongst fridge freezers of this age. Across all the fridges of this age and type the storage times during power failure range from 3.5h to 46h, and the average storage time during power failure is 18h.

If this fridge freezer storage time during power failure is too short for you then you might want to look at the Bosch KIN86AF30[plb_1896360_price] (13h) which is also cheaper.

Very Small Freezer Capacity

Across all the fridges of a similar age and type to the FAB28LCS1 the freezer capacities range from 1.5kg/24h to 20kg/24h, and the average freezer capacity is 5.2kg/24h. The Smeg FAB28LCS1 has a fairly small freezer capacity (only 2 kilograms per 24 hours) compared to most of the other small total net capacity fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Most small total net capacity fridge freezers that are a comparable age to the FAB28LCS1 do not have a super cool function. The Smeg FAB28LCS1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a super cool function.

There are a number of alternative fridges which also have a super cool function that you might also want to consider including the Miele KFN 37682 iD[plb_2030600_price] which is also cheaper.

Quite Short Autonomy Time

3 Other reasons to consider the Smeg FAB28LCS1

Released Over Four Years Ago

It was over four years ago when this small total net capacity fridge was released.

Average Height

The FAB28LCS1 has a fairly standard height (1,510 millimeter) compared to most of the other fridges of a similar type and age to the FAB28LCS1.

If you don't mind having a taller height then you might also want to look at the Miele KFN 9758 iD-3[plb_304782_price] (1,772mm), or the Siemens KI39FP60[plb_1035619_price] (1,770mm) which is also cheaper.

Average Noise Level

At 40 decibels, the FAB28LCS1 has a pretty standard noise level compared to most of the other comparable spec fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the FAB28LCS1.

We compared all the other 40dB noise level fridge freezers to this fridge and we think the Siemens KI39FP60[plb_1035619_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Alternative fridges with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Liebherr CNES 4056[plb_621381_price] (41dB) which is also cheaper.
