4 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

This medium total net capacity fridge freezer is rated A++ for energy efficiency. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the 24 year running cost of the FAB30RRO1 is £499, which makes it one of the more economic to run fridges of this type and age.

Short

The shortest comparable spec fridge freezer that has been on the market for around the same time as the FAB30RRO1 is 770mm tall and the tallest is 2,100mm. At only 1,688 millimeter, the FAB30RRO1 is very short compared to most of the other fridge freezers of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

With a noise level of only 38 decibels, the FAB30RRO1 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that are a comparable age to the FAB30RRO1. The average noise level of fridge freezers that are a similar age to the FAB30RRO1 is 41dB.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Connected Load

With a connected load of only 100 Watts, the FAB30RRO1 has one of the lower connected loads amongst medium total net capacity fridges of this age. The average connected load of fridges that have been available for a similar time to the FAB30RRO1 is 130W, and the connected loads range from -3W to 320W.

14 Reasons Against

Smeg Fridges Only Have Poor Reviews

Fridges produced by Smeg generally have poor ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

The smallest net freezer capacity of medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for a comparable time to the FAB30RRO1 is 27L and the largest is 120L. With a net freezer capacity of only 64 liters, the FAB30RRO1 has a quite small net freezer capacity compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that are a similar age to the FAB30RRO1.

If this fridge net freezer capacity is not large enough for you then you might also want to consider the KG36NSB31[pl_2372650_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

At only 15 hours, the Smeg FAB30RRO1 has a fairly short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that are a comparable age to the FAB30RRO1. The average storage time during power failure of similar spec fridges that have been available for a comparable time to the FAB30RRO1 is 20h.

If this fridge storage time during power failure is too short for you then you might want to consider the Siemens KG36NXL32[plb_2305246_price] (16h), the Bosch KGN36VW31[plb_1947358_price] (16h), or the LG GBB539SWCWS[plb_2413031_price] (16h).
