4 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

This fridge freezer has an energy efficiency classification of A++, and the FAB30LV1 is one of the more economic to run fridges of this type and age that we have analysed for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the FAB30LV1 will cost £499 over 24 years to run.

Short

With a height of only 1,680 millimeter, the FAB30LV1 is very short compared to most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable spec and age to the FAB30LV1. Fridge freezers of a similar type and age to the FAB30LV1 have heights of between 770mm and 2,100mm, and the average height is 1,800mm.

Chart Edit

Two Vegetable Drawers

Most fridges of a similar type and age to the FAB30LV1 have between one and two vegetable drawers, including the FAB30LV1 which has two vegetable drawers.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The quietest noise level of fridges that were released more than two years ago is 34dB, the loudest is 48dB, and the average noise level is 41dB. At only 38 decibels, the Smeg FAB30LV1 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other fridge freezers of a similar age and spec to the FAB30LV1.

14 Reasons Against

Smeg Only Has Poor Fridge Reviews

Smeg fridge freezers have an average rating of 20%, which is in the bottom 10% of all fridge manufacturers that we have analysed.

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

At only 64 liters, the Smeg FAB30LV1 has a fairly small net freezer capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers of this age and type. The smallest net freezer capacity of medium total net capacity fridges that are a similar age to the FAB30LV1 is 27L and the largest is 120L.

If you want a fridge with a larger net freezer capacity then you might also want to consider the KG36NSW31[pl_2601926_price] (66L), or the KG36NSB31[pl_2372650_price] (66L) both from Siemens or the Bosch KGN36SQ31[plb_2063268_price] (66L).

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The average storage time during power failure of comparable spec fridge freezers that have been on the market for more than two years is 20h. With a storage time during power failure of only 15 hours, the FAB30LV1 has a quite short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other fridges of this age and type.

If you are looking for a longer storage time during power failure then you might want to consider the LG GBB539SWCWS[plb_2413031_price] (16h).

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

The FAB30LV1 does not have a water filter, although this is within the context that most of the other fridge freezers of a similar age and spec to the FAB30LV1 also do not have a water filter.

We think you might also be interested in alternative fridges which also have a water filter including the Siemens KG36WXL30S[plb_2373670_price], or the Bosch KGW36XL30S[plb_2362515_price].
