4 Reasons For

Short

The average height of fridge freezers of this type and age is 1,800mm, and the heights range from 770mm to 2,100mm. With a height of only 1,688 millimeter, the FAB30RBL1 is one of the shorter medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago amongst fridges of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

Medium total net capacity fridges that came out around the same time as the FAB30RBL1 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 FAB30RBL1 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago.

Fridge freezers with a louder noise level that might be worth looking at include the Smeg FAB30LP1[plb_1909221_price] (38dB), or the Bosch KGE36AI40[plb_758639_price] (38dB).

Chart Edit

Quite Low Connected Load

The connected loads of medium total net capacity fridges that are a comparable age to the FAB30RBL1 range from -3W to 320W.

15 Reasons Against

Smeg Fridge Freezers Only Have Poor Reviews

Smeg is one of the lower rated fridge manufacturers according to average owner and expert review score data that we have collected for all fridge freezers.

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

At only 64 liters, the Smeg FAB30RBL1 has a quite small net freezer capacity compared to most of the other fridges of this age and spec. Medium total net capacity fridges that are a similar age to the FAB30RBL1 have net freezer capacities of between 27L and 120L.

If you want a fridge freezer with a larger net freezer capacity then you might want to consider the KG36NSW31[pl_2601926_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

With a storage time during power failure of only 15 hours, the FAB30RBL1 has one of the shorter storage times during power failure amongst fridges of this age. Fridge freezers of this age and spec have storage times during power failure of between 4h and 46h, and the average storage time during power failure is 20h.

Fridges with a longer storage time during power failure that might also be worth considering include the LG GBB539PZCWS[plb_2382379_price] (16h).

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Most comparable spec fridge freezers that have been around for around the same time as the FAB30RBL1 do not have a super cool function. The FAB30RBL1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a super cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Most medium total net capacity fridges that were released around the same time as the FAB30RBL1 do not have an air filter. The FAB30RBL1 is no exception to this as it too does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

Most fridges of this type and age do not feature ice crushing. The FAB30RBL1 is no exception to this as it too does not feature ice crushing.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker

Like most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for more than two years, the FAB30RBL1 does not have an icemaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

The Smeg FAB30RBL1 does not have an AntiBacteria function, although this is within the context that most of the other fridge freezers of a similar age and type to the FAB30RBL1 also do not have an AntiBacteria function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Humidifier Function

The FAB30RBL1 does not have a humidifier function, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other fridges of this age and spec also do not have a humidifier function.

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