4 Reasons For

Short

When compared to other medium total net capacity fridges that were launched around the same time as the FAB30LRO1 that we have checked, the Smeg FAB30LRO1's height of only 1,688 millimeter is one of the shortest. The average height of medium total net capacity fridges that are a similar age to the FAB30LRO1 is 1,800mm.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

Fridges of this age and spec have noise levels of between 34dB and 48dB, and the average noise level is 41dB. With a noise level of only 38 decibels, the Smeg FAB30LRO1 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other fridge freezers that have been available for a similar time to the FAB30LRO1.

Chart Edit

Four Fridge Shelves Baskets

The FAB30LRO1 is a four fridge shelve basket fridge freezer.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Connected Load

The lowest connected load of fridge freezers that have been around for more than two years is -3W, the highest is 320W, and the average connected load is 130W. The FAB30LRO1 has a quite low connected load (only 100 Watts) compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that came out around the same time as the FAB30LRO1.

15 Reasons Against

Smeg Only Has Poor Fridge Freezer Reviews

We checked the reviews from experts and owners of hundreds of fridges to determine an average rating for each fridge brand. On average fridges made by Smeg have poor reviews from owners and experts.

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

Across all the fridge freezers of this age and spec the net freezer capacities range from 27L to 120L. With a net freezer capacity of only 64 liters, the FAB30LRO1 has a quite small net freezer capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago.

If this Smeg fridge net freezer capacity is not large enough for you then you might want to look at the KG36NSB31 (£975.72) (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

At only 15 hours, the FAB30LRO1 has a quite short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other comparable spec fridge freezers that have been available for more than two years. The shortest storage time during power failure of fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago is 4h and the longest is 46h.

If you are looking for a fridge with a longer storage time during power failure then you might also want to look at the Siemens KG36NXL32 (£608.75) (16h), the Bosch KGN36VW31 (£529.72) (16h), or the LG GBB539SWCWS (£599.00) (16h).

Only One Freezer Shelve/basket

The FAB30LRO1 is a one freezer shelve/basket fridge. Most of the other fridge freezers of a similar type and age to the FAB30LRO1 have between one and four freezer shelves/baskets.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

The Smeg FAB30LRO1 does not have a super cool function, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago also do not have a super cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Most fridge freezers of a comparable age and type to the FAB30LRO1 do not have an air filter. The FAB30LRO1 is no exception to this as it too does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

Most medium total net capacity fridges that were launched more than two years ago do not feature ice crushing. The FAB30LRO1 is no exception to this as it too does not feature ice crushing.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker

The FAB30LRO1 does not have an icemaker, although keep in mind that most of the other fridges of a similar spec and age to the FAB30LRO1 also do not have an icemaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

Most comparable spec fridges that have been available for a similar time to the FAB30LRO1 do not have an AntiBacteria function. The FAB30LRO1 is no exception to this as it too does not have an AntiBacteria function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Humidifier Function

Most fridge freezers of a comparable age and spec to the FAB30LRO1 do not have a humidifier function. The FAB30LRO1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a humidifier function.

We compared all the other fridge freezers which also have a humidifier function to this fridge and we think the Siemens KG36VUL31 (£586.16) is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Water Filter

We compared all the other fridge freezers which also have a water filter to this fridge freezer and we think the Siemens KG36WXL30S (£675.53), or the Bosch KGW36XL30S (£764.49) is also worth considering.
