4 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

This fridge has an energy efficiency classification of A++. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the 24 year running cost of the FAB30LNE1 is £499, which is in the cheapest 19% of all 482 fridge freezers of this age and spec.

Short

The Smeg FAB30LNE1 is quite short (only 1,688 millimeter) compared to most of the other fridge freezers of this spec and age. The heights of fridge freezers of a comparable age and spec to the FAB30LNE1 range from 770mm to 2,100mm.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

Across all the medium total net capacity fridges that were launched around the same time as the FAB30LNE1 the noise levels range from 34dB to 48dB. With a noise level of only 38 decibels, the FAB30LNE1 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other fridges that have been available for around the same time as the FAB30LNE1.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Connected Load

With a connected load of only 100 Watts, the Smeg FAB30LNE1 has one of the lower connected loads amongst medium total net capacity fridges of this age. The lowest connected load of medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for a similar time to the FAB30LNE1 is -3W, the highest is 320W, and the average connected load is 130W.

14 Reasons Against

Smeg Fridges Only Have Poor Reviews

On average fridge freezers from Smeg are rated 20 out of 100, which is in the bottom 10% of all fridge freezer manufacturers that we have analysed.

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

With a net freezer capacity of only 64 liters, the FAB30LNE1 has one of the smaller net freezer capacities amongst similar spec fridge freezers of this age. The smallest net freezer capacity of fridges of this age and spec is 27L, the largest is 120L, and the average net freezer capacity is 83L.

If this fridge freezer net freezer capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the KG36NSB31[pl_2372650_price] (66L), or the KG36NST31[pl_2358334_price] (66L) both from Siemens or the Bosch KGN36SQ31[plb_2063268_price] (66L).

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The shortest storage time during power failure of fridges of this type and age is 4h and the longest is 46h. The Smeg FAB30LNE1 has a fairly short storage time during power failure (only 15 hours) compared to most of the other fridges that were released more than two years ago.

If this Smeg fridge storage time during power failure is too short for you then you might want to consider the Siemens KG36NXL32[plb_2305246_price] (16h), the Bosch KGN36VW31[plb_1947358_price] (16h), or the LG GBB539SWCWS[plb_2413031_price] (16h).

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Most medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for around the same time as the FAB30LNE1 do not have an air filter. The FAB30LNE1 is no exception to this as it too does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Like most of the other fridge freezers that have been around for more than two years, the Smeg FAB30LNE1 does not have a super cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

The FAB30LNE1 does not have a water filter, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other fridge freezers of this spec and age also do not have a water filter.

We compared this fridge to all the other fridge freezers with a water filter and we think the Siemens KG36WXL30S[plb_2373670_price], or the Bosch KGW36XL30S[plb_2362515_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

The FAB30LNE1 does not have an AntiBacteria function. Most of the other comparable spec fridge freezers that have been available for a similar time to the FAB30LNE1 also do not have an AntiBacteria function.

Chart Edit

The FAB30LNE1 does not have a humidifier function, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that came out more than two years ago also do not have a humidifier function.

We compared this fridge freezer to all the other fridge freezers with a humidifier function and we think the Siemens KG36VUL31[plb_2360295_price] is also worth considering.
