5 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

This Smeg fridge freezer has an energy efficiency rating of A++, and the average running cost of the FAB30LO1 is £499 over 24 years based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which makes it one of the cheaper to run fridge freezers of a similar spec and age.

Short

The FAB30LO1 is one of the shorter similar spec fridges that came out more than two years ago (only 1,688 millimeter) amongst medium total net capacity fridges of this age. The heights of similar spec fridge freezers that are a comparable age to the FAB30LO1 range from 770mm to 2,100mm, and the average height is 1,800mm.

If you would consider a fridge freezer with a taller height then you might want to look at the IC 3013[pl_621535_price] (1,772mm and cheaper), or the ICP 3026[pl_414340_price] (1,769mm and cheaper) both from Liebherr.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

With a noise level of only 38 decibels, the Smeg FAB30LO1 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for around the same time as the FAB30LO1. The quietest noise level of fridges that are a comparable age to the FAB30LO1 is 34dB and the loudest is 48dB.

We compared this fridge to all the other 38dB noise level fridge freezers and we think cheaper fridge freezers such as the CBPesf 4043[pl_1911656_price], and the ICP 3026[pl_414340_price] both from Liebherr is also worth considering.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Smeg FAB30LP1[plb_1909221_price] (38dB).

Four Fridge Shelves Baskets

The Smeg FAB30LO1 is a four fridge shelve basket fridge freezer. Most of the other similar spec fridges that were launched more than two years ago have between 2 and 10 fridge shelves baskets.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Connected Load

Fridge freezers of a similar spec and age to the FAB30LO1 have connected loads of between -3W and 320W. The FAB30LO1 has one of the lower connected loads (only 100 Watts) amongst fridges of this age.

Chart Edit

16 Reasons Against

Smeg Only Has Poor Fridge Freezer Reviews

On average fridge freezers produced by Smeg are rated 20%, which is in the bottom 10% of all fridge freezer manufacturers that we have looked at.

Pricey

After checking the price of 207 medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for more than two years they range in price from £239 to £15,000. We think that this Smeg fridge freezer looks expensive compared to other medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for more than two years.

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

The net freezer capacities of fridge freezers that have been on the market for more than two years range from 27L to 120L. At only 64 liters, the Smeg FAB30LO1 has a fairly small net freezer capacity compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago.

If this Smeg fridge net freezer capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the KG36NST31[pl_2358334_price] (66L), or the KG36NSW31[pl_2601926_price] (66L) both from Siemens or the Bosch KGN36SQ31[plb_2063268_price] (66L) which is also cheaper.

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

Across all the fridge freezers of a comparable type and age to the FAB30LO1 the storage times during power failure range from 4h to 46h, and the average storage time during power failure is 20h. At only 15 hours, the FAB30LO1 has a quite short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other fridges of a similar spec and age to the FAB30LO1.

If you want a longer storage time during power failure then you might also want to look at the KG36NSW31[pl_2601926_price] (17h and cheaper), or the KG39FSB30[pl_1980105_price] (24h and cheaper) both from Siemens or the Bosch KGN36SQ31[plb_2063268_price] (17h and cheaper).

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Like most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for around the same time as the FAB30LO1, the FAB30LO1 does not have a super cool function.

We compared this fridge freezer to all the other fridges with a super cool function and we think the Siemens KG36NSW31[plb_2601926_price] is also worth considering.
