2 Reasons For
Running Costs Are Low
The FAB28QB has an average running cost of £506 over 24 years based on average energy prices and usage levels, which is in the cheapest 12% of all 262 fridges that have been around for more than two years.
Fridges that are a similar age to the FAB28QB have heights of between 540mm and 2,100mm, and the average height is 1,700mm. The FAB28QB is quite short (only 1,510 millimeter) compared to most of the other fridge freezers of this type and age.
13 Reasons Against
Smeg Only Has Poor Reviews for Its Fridges
Fridge freezers built by Smeg have poor ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all fridge freezers (not just fridge freezers) and found that Smeg also has poor ratings across its entire range.
Quite Small Gross Freezer Capacity
At only 26 liters, the Smeg FAB28QB has a quite small gross freezer capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers that came out around the same time as the FAB28QB. The smallest gross freezer capacity of fridge freezers that are a comparable age to the FAB28QB is 14L and the biggest is 270L.
Does Not Have an Icemaker
Like most of the other fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as the FAB28QB, the FAB28QB does not have an icemaker.
The FAB28QB does not have a water filter. Most of the other fridge freezers that have been on the market for a similar time to the FAB28QB also do not have a water filter.
It is worth also looking at other fridge freezers which also have a water filter including the Samsung RSG5UUMH[plb_2662678_price].
Does Not Have an Air Filter
Most fridge freezers that are a similar age to the FAB28QB do not have an air filter. The FAB28QB is no exception to this as it too does not have an air filter.
Does Not Feature Ice Crushing
The FAB28QB does not feature ice crushing, although it is worth noting that most of the other fridge freezers that have been around for more than two years also do not feature ice crushing.
Does Not Have a Super Cool Function
Most fridge freezers that have been around for around the same time as the FAB28QB do not have a super cool function. The FAB28QB is no exception to this as it too does not have a super cool function.
Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function
The FAB28QB does not have an AntiBacteria function, although keep in mind that most of the other fridge freezers that have been around for a comparable time to the FAB28QB also do not have an AntiBacteria function.
Does Not Have a Humidifier Function
Most fridge freezers that are a similar age to the FAB28QB do not have a humidifier function. The FAB28QB is no exception to this as it too does not have a humidifier function.
Quite Small Freezer Capacity
The average freezer capacity of fridge freezers that have been around for more than two years is 5.7kg/24h, and the freezer capacities range from 1kg/24h to 16kg/24h. With a freezer capacity of only 2 kilograms per 24 hours, the FAB28QB has one of the smallest freezer capacities amongst similar spec fridges of this age.
Quite Small Total Gross Capacity
At only 256 liters, the FAB28QB has a quite small total gross capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers that were launched more than two years ago. The smallest total gross capacity of fridges that have been available for a similar time to the FAB28QB is 6.1L and the largest is 18,000L.
Fridges of this age and type range in price from £139 to £15,000. We think that this fridge looks expensive compared to other fridges of this age and type.
2 Other reasons to consider the Smeg FAB28QB
With a width of 600 millimeters, the Smeg FAB28QB has a pretty typical width compared to most of the other fridge freezers that have been around for more than two years.
Fridge freezers with a wider width that might also be worth considering include the FAB30YR[pl_1030780_price] (600mm), the FAB28YO[pl_1030850_price] (600mm), or the FAB28QRO[pl_1030853_price] (600mm) all from Smeg.
