4 Reasons For

Short

At only 1,688 millimeter, the FAB30RP1 is fairly short compared to most of the other fridges of a comparable spec and age to the FAB30RP1. Across all the medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago the heights range from 770mm to 2,100mm, and the average height is 1,800mm.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

With a noise level of only 38 decibels, the FAB30RP1 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable age and type to the FAB30RP1. Similar spec fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago have noise levels of between 34dB and 48dB.

If you would consider a fridge freezer with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Liebherr ICP 3026 (38dB).

Four Fridge Shelves Baskets

The Smeg FAB30RP1 is a four fridge shelve basket fridge. Most of the other fridges that have been available for a comparable time to the FAB30RP1 have between 2 and 10 fridge shelves baskets.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Connected Load

The lowest connected load of fridge freezers of a similar age and spec to the FAB30RP1 is -3W, the highest is 320W, and the average connected load is 130W. The FAB30RP1 has a quite low connected load (only 100 Watts) compared to most of the other fridge freezers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the FAB30RP1.

15 Reasons Against

Poor Brand

Fridge freezers manufactured by Smeg are some of the less good fridge freezers according to average user and expert reviews.

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

The smallest net freezer capacity of fridges of this type and age is 27L and the largest is 120L. At only 64 liters, the Smeg FAB30RP1 has a fairly small net freezer capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec fridges that are a similar age to the FAB30RP1.

If you want a larger net freezer capacity then you might also want to consider the KG36NSW31 (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

The shortest storage time during power failure of fridges of a similar spec and age to the FAB30RP1 is 4h, the longest is 46h, and the average storage time during power failure is 20h. At only 15 hours, the FAB30RP1 has a fairly short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other fridge freezers that are a similar age to the FAB30RP1.

Fridge freezers with a longer storage time during power failure that might also be worth considering include the Siemens KG36NVI32 (16h), or the Bosch KGN36VW31 (16h).

Only One Freezer Shelve/basket

The FAB30RP1 is a one freezer shelve/basket fridge. Most of the other fridges of this age and type have between one and four freezer shelves/baskets.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

The FAB30RP1 does not have a super cool function, although it is worth noting that most of the other similar spec fridge freezers that have been available for a comparable time to the FAB30RP1 also do not have a super cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

The FAB30RP1 does not have an air filter, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that are a comparable age to the FAB30RP1 also do not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

The Smeg FAB30RP1 does not feature ice crushing, although keep in mind that most of the other fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago also do not feature ice crushing.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker

The FAB30RP1 does not have an icemaker, although keep in mind that most of the other fridges of this age and type also do not have an icemaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

Like most of the other fridge freezers of this age and type, the Smeg FAB30RP1 does not have an AntiBacteria function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Humidifier Function

Most medium total net capacity fridges that are a similar age to the FAB30RP1 do not have a humidifier function. The FAB30RP1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a humidifier function.

We compared this fridge freezer to all the other fridge freezers with a humidifier function and we think the Siemens KG36VUL31 (£607.57) is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

The FAB30RP1 does not have a water dispenser, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other fridges that have been around for more than two years also do not have a water dispenser.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Like most of the other fridges of this spec and age, the FAB30RP1 does not have a water filter.

We compared all the other fridges which also have a water filter to this fridge freezer and we think the Siemens KG36WXL30S (£721.82), or the Bosch KGW36XL30S (£529.00) is also worth considering.

Very Small Freezer Capacity

At only 3 kilograms per 24 hours, the FAB30RP1 has a fairly small freezer capacity compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for more than two years. The freezer capacities of similar spec fridges that are a comparable age to the FAB30RP1 range from 2kg/24h to 17kg/24h.

Chart Edit

Very Small Total Gross Capacity

Across all the comparable spec fridges that are a similar age to the FAB30RP1 the total gross capacity range from 280L to 410L. At only 295 liters, the FAB30RP1 has a quite small total gross capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers that are a similar age to the FAB30RP1.

Chart Edit

Only One Vegetable Drawer

Most fridges of this spec and age have between one and two vegetable drawers, including the FAB30RP1 which has one vegetable drawer.

3 Other reasons to consider the Smeg FAB30RP1

Running Costs Are OK

This fridge has an energy efficiency rating of A++. Based on average energy prices we estimate that the FAB30RP1 will cost £499 over 24 years to run, which is typical compared to the other 482 fridges of a similar age and type.

Average Net Fridge Capacity

At 229 liters, the FAB30RP1 has a pretty typical net fridge capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers of this age and type.

We compared all the other 229L net fridge capacity fridges to this fridge freezer and we think because of it's better review score, the Gorenje RF60309 is also worth considering.

If you want a larger net fridge capacity then you might also want to consider the Haier CFE633CWE (£269.99) (230L).
