4 Reasons For

Short

The Smeg FAB30LBL1 is quite short (only 1,688 millimeter) compared to most of the other similar spec fridges that have been around for a comparable time to the FAB30LBL1. Across all the similar spec fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago the heights range from 770mm to 2,100mm.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 38 decibels, the FAB30LBL1 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other fridges of this spec and age. The average noise level of similar spec fridge freezers that are a comparable age to the FAB30LBL1 is 41dB, and the noise levels range from 34dB to 48dB.

Chart Edit

Four Fridge Shelves Baskets

The Smeg FAB30LBL1 is a four fridge shelve basket fridge. Most of the other fridges that are a comparable age to the FAB30LBL1 have between 2 and 10 fridge shelves baskets.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Connected Load

Fridge freezers that have been around for a comparable time to the FAB30LBL1 have connected loads of between -3W and 320W, and the average connected load is 130W. With a connected load of only 100 Watts, the FAB30LBL1 has one of the lower connected loads amongst comparable spec fridges of this age.

14 Reasons Against

Smeg Only Has Poor Fridge Freezer Reviews

Fridges from Smeg have an average rating of 20 out of 100, which is in the bottom 10% of all fridge freezer brands that we have analysed.

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

At only 64 liters, the Smeg FAB30LBL1 has a fairly small net freezer capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers that have been available for around the same time as the FAB30LBL1. Across all the medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago the net freezer capacities range from 27L to 120L.

Fridge freezers with a larger net freezer capacity that might be worth looking at include the KG36NSB31 (£392.00) (66L), or the KG36NST31 (£1,258.62) (66L) both from Siemens or the Bosch KGN36SQ31 (£1,108.14) (66L).

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

Fridge freezers that are a comparable age to the FAB30LBL1 have storage times during power failure of between 4h and 46h. With a storage time during power failure of only 15 hours, the Smeg FAB30LBL1 has one of the shorter storage times during power failure amongst comparable spec fridges of this age.

If this medium total net capacity fridge freezer storage time during power failure is not long enough for you then you might also want to consider the Siemens KG36NXL32 (£608.75) (16h), the Bosch KGN36VW31 (£319.00) (16h), or the LG GBB539SWCWS (£599.00) (16h).

Does Not Have an Air Filter

The Smeg FAB30LBL1 does not have an air filter. Most of the other comparable spec fridges that were released more than two years ago also do not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Most medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago do not have a super cool function. The FAB30LBL1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a super cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Like most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that were launched around the same time as the FAB30LBL1, the FAB30LBL1 does not have a water filter.

It is worth also looking at other fridge freezers which also have a water filter including the Siemens KG36WXL30S (£675.53), or the Bosch KGW36XL30S (£529.00).

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

The FAB30LBL1 does not have a water dispenser. Most of the other comparable spec fridges that have been on the market for a similar time to the FAB30LBL1 also do not have a water dispenser.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker

The FAB30LBL1 does not have an icemaker, although it is worth noting that most of the other fridge freezers of this type and age also do not have an icemaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

Like most of the other fridge freezers of a similar spec and age to the FAB30LBL1, the Smeg FAB30LBL1 does not have an AntiBacteria function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Humidifier Function

The FAB30LBL1 does not have a humidifier function, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other fridge freezers that have been around for more than two years also do not have a humidifier function.

There are a number of other fridges which also have a humidifier function that you might also want to look at including the Siemens KG36VUL31 (£586.16).
