5 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

The efficiency rating of this Smeg fridge is A++, and the FAB30RV1 has an average running cost of £499 over 24 years based on average energy prices and usage levels, which makes it one of the more economic to run fridge freezers that came out more than two years ago.

Fairly Large Net Fridge Capacity

The smallest net fridge capacity of fridge freezers of this age and type is 130L and the largest is 340L. The FAB30RV1 has one of the larger net fridge capacities (231 liters) amongst similar spec fridges of this age.

If you are looking for a fridge freezer with a larger net fridge capacity then you might want to consider the Hisense RB403N4EW1[plb_2525342_price] (233L) which also has a higher rating.

Short

With a height of only 1,680 millimeter, the FAB30RV1's height is one of the shortest amongst fridge freezers that have been around for around the same time as the FAB30RV1. The shortest fridge freezer of a similar spec and age to the FAB30RV1 is 770mm tall and the tallest is 2,100mm.

Chart Edit

Two Vegetable Drawers

Most fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago have between one and two vegetable drawers, including the FAB30RV1 which has two vegetable drawers.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for more than two years range from 34dB to 48dB. With a noise level of only 38 decibels, the FAB30RV1 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for around the same time as the FAB30RV1.

14 Reasons Against

Smeg Only Has Poor Fridge Reviews

Fridges built by Smeg are some of the less good fridges according to average reviews from owners and experts.

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

The FAB30RV1 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 fridge freezers of this age and type is 83L.

Fridge freezers with a larger net freezer capacity that might also be worth considering include 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

With a storage time during power failure of only 15 hours, the FAB30RV1 has a fairly short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other similar spec fridge freezers that have been around for a comparable time to the FAB30RV1. Across all the fridges of a comparable age and spec to the FAB30RV1 the storage times during power failure range from 4h to 46h.

If you want a fridge with a longer storage time during power failure then you might also want to look at the LG GBB539SWCWS[plb_2413031_price] (16h).

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Like most of the other fridge freezers of this spec and age, the FAB30RV1 does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

The Smeg FAB30RV1 does not have a super cool function, although keep in mind that most of the other fridge freezers of this age and type also do not have a super cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Most fridges of this age and spec do not have a water filter. The FAB30RV1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water filter.

We compared all the other fridges which also have a water filter to this fridge and we think the Siemens KG36WXL30S[plb_2373670_price], or the Bosch KGW36XL30S[plb_2362515_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker
