3 Reasons For

Quite Large Net Fridge Capacity

Across all the fridge freezers of this spec and age the net fridge capacities range from 130L to 340L. With a net fridge capacity of 231 liters, the Smeg FAB30LX1 has a quite large net fridge capacity compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that are a comparable age to the FAB30LX1.

Chart Edit

Short

When compared to other medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the FAB30LX1 that we have assessed, the Smeg FAB30LX1's height of only 1,680 millimeter is one of the shortest. Medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago have heights of between 770mm and 2,100mm, and the average height is 1,800mm.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 38 decibels, the FAB30LX1 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other comparable spec fridge freezers that have been on the market for more than two years. The noise levels of fridges that were released more than two years ago range from 34dB to 48dB, and the average noise level is 41dB.

Fridges with a louder noise level that might be worth looking at include the Bosch KGE36AI40 (£603.29) (38dB).

14 Reasons Against

Smeg Only Has Poor Reviews for Its Fridge Freezers

Fridges built by Smeg generally have poor ratings.

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

The FAB30LX1 has one of the smaller net freezer capacities (only 64 liters) amongst medium total net capacity fridges of this age. The average net freezer capacity of fridges of this age and spec is 83L.

If you are looking for a larger net freezer capacity then you might also want to consider the KG36NSW31 (£1,374.36) (66L), or the KG36NST31 (£1,258.62) (66L) both from Siemens or the Bosch KGN36SQ31 (£350.00) (66L).

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

At only 15 hours, the FAB30LX1 has a fairly short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other fridge freezers that came out around the same time as the FAB30LX1. Fridges of this spec and age have storage times during power failure of between 4h and 46h.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

The FAB30LX1 does not have an air filter. Most of the other fridges that came out around the same time as the FAB30LX1 also do not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Most similar spec fridges that are a comparable age to the FAB30LX1 do not have a super cool function. The FAB30LX1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a super cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

The FAB30LX1 does not have a water filter, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other fridges of a similar spec and age to the FAB30LX1 also do not have a water filter.

There are a number of alternative fridge freezers which also have a water filter which you might also want to look at including the Siemens KG36WXL30S (£675.53), or the Bosch KGW36XL30S (£529.00).

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

The Smeg FAB30LX1 does not have a water dispenser. Most of the other fridges of a comparable type and age to the FAB30LX1 also do not have a water dispenser.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker

Most medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for around the same time as the FAB30LX1 do not have an icemaker. The FAB30LX1 is no exception to this as it too does not have an icemaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

Most medium total net capacity fridges that are a comparable age to the FAB30LX1 do not feature ice crushing. The FAB30LX1 is no exception to this as it too does not feature ice crushing.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

The Smeg FAB30LX1 does not have an AntiBacteria function, although it is worth noting that most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable spec and age to the FAB30LX1 also do not have an AntiBacteria function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Humidifier Function

The Smeg FAB30LX1 does not have a humidifier function. Most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago also do not have a humidifier function.

We think you might also be interested in alternative fridges which also have a humidifier function including the Siemens KG36VUL31 (£586.16).
