5 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

Based on average energy prices we estimate that the FAB28RUJ will cost £506 over 24 years to run, which makes it one of the cheaper to run fridges of this age and type.

Short

The average height of fridge freezers that were released around the same time as the FAB28RUJ is 1,700mm, and the heights range from 540mm to 2,100mm. At only 1,510 millimeter, the Smeg FAB28RUJ is fairly short compared to most of the other fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago.

Fridge freezers with a taller height that might also be worth looking at include the Smeg FAB28YO (£1,021.90) (1,510mm).

Quite Low Energy Usage

Across all the fridge freezers of a comparable age and type to the FAB28RUJ the energy usages range from 0.41kWh/24h to 1.2kWh/24h. At only 0.59 kilowatts hour per 24 hours, the FAB28RUJ has a quite low energy usage compared to most of the other fridges of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Very Low Connected Load

The lowest connected load of fridge freezers of this age and type is 70W, the highest is 400W, and the average connected load is 120W. The FAB28RUJ has a fairly low connected load (only 90 Watts) compared to most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable type and age to the FAB28RUJ.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

With a depth of only 540 millimeters, the FAB28RUJ is fairly shallow compared to most of the other similar spec fridge freezers that have been available for more than two years. The depths of fridge freezers of this age and type range from 500mm to 770mm, and the average depth is 610mm.

Chart Edit

13 Reasons Against

Smeg Only Has Poor Fridge Freezer Reviews

We calculated the average ratings for all Smeg fridges and also specifically for Smeg fridge freezers and found that in both cases Smeg had poor ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

The net freezer capacities of fridge freezers of this spec and age range from 26L to 160L. When compared to other fridge freezers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the FAB28RUJ, the net freezer capacity of the FAB28RUJ of only 26 liters is one of the smallest.

If this fridge net freezer capacity is not large enough for you then you might also want to look at the Amica FD 206.3 (£185.00) (33L), or the Beko RBI 6102 (£323.53) (45L).

Very Short Storage Time During Power Failure

With a storage time during power failure of only 12 hours, the FAB28RUJ has one of the shorter storage times during power failure amongst comparable spec fridge freezers of this age. Comparable spec fridges that came out around the same time as the FAB28RUJ have storage times during power failure of between 10h and 31h, and the average storage time during power failure is 18h.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker

Most comparable spec fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago do not have an icemaker. The Smeg FAB28RUJ is no exception to this as it too does not have an icemaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Like most of the other fridges that came out around the same time as the FAB28RUJ, the FAB28RUJ does not have a water dispenser.

It is worth considering other fridges which also have a water dispenser including the Samsung RB29FWRNDBC which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Water Filter

The FAB28RUJ does not have a water filter, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other fridge freezers of a similar age and type to the FAB28RUJ also do not have a water filter.

We compared all the other fridges which also have a water filter to this fridge and we think the Samsung RSG5UUMH (£1,049.00) is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Like most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable age and type to the FAB28RUJ, the FAB28RUJ does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

The FAB28RUJ does not feature ice crushing, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other fridge freezers of this age and type also do not feature ice crushing.

It is worth considering alternative fridges which also feature ice crushing including the Samsung RFG23UERS (£1,389.00).

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

The Smeg FAB28RUJ does not have a super cool function. Most of the other fridge freezers of a similar spec and age to the FAB28RUJ also do not have a super cool function.

We compared this fridge to all the other fridge freezers with a super cool function and we think the Liebherr IKBV 3254 (£1,686.05) is also worth considering.

Chart Edit
