4 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

This fridge is rated A++ for energy efficiency, and the FAB30RVE1 has an average 24 year running cost of £499 based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which is in the cheapest 18% of all 482 comparable spec fridges that have been on the market for more than two years.

Short

Medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the FAB30RVE1 have heights of between 770mm and 2,100mm, and the average height is 1,800mm. When compared to other similar spec fridges that were released more than two years ago, the FAB30RVE1's height of only 1,680 millimeter is one of the shortest.

Chart Edit

Two Vegetable Drawers

Most fridges of a similar spec and age to the FAB30RVE1 have between one and two vegetable drawers, including the FAB30RVE1 which has two vegetable drawers.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The average noise level of medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for around the same time as the FAB30RVE1 is 41dB, and the noise levels range from 34dB to 48dB. At only 38 decibels, the FAB30RVE1 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago.

14 Reasons Against

Poor Brand

Smeg fridge freezers have an average rating of 20%, which is in the bottom 10% of all fridge manufacturers that we have assessed.

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

Across all the medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for more than two years the net freezer capacities range from 27L to 120L. The Smeg FAB30RVE1 has a quite small net freezer capacity (only 64 liters) compared to most of the other comparable spec fridge freezers that are a similar age to the FAB30RVE1.

If you want a fridge with a larger net freezer capacity then you might also want to consider the KG36NSW31 (£1,374.36) (66L), or the KG36NSB31 (£392.00) (66L) both from Siemens or the Bosch KGN36SQ31 (£1,108.14) (66L).

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

At only 15 hours, the FAB30RVE1 has a quite short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other similar spec fridges that came out around the same time as the FAB30RVE1. The average storage time during power failure of fridge freezers of this type and age is 20h, and the storage times during power failure range from 4h to 46h.

Fridges with a longer storage time during power failure that might be worth looking at include the LG GBB539SWCWS (£599.00) (16h).

Does Not Have an Air Filter

The Smeg FAB30RVE1 does not have an air filter. Most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that were released around the same time as the FAB30RVE1 also do not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

The FAB30RVE1 does not have a super cool function, although keep in mind that most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the FAB30RVE1 also do not have a super cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

The FAB30RVE1 does not have a water filter, although this is within the context that most of the other fridge freezers of a similar type and age to the FAB30RVE1 also do not have a water filter.

Other fridge freezers which also have a water filter that you might want to consider include the Siemens KG36WXL30S (£675.53), or the Bosch KGW36XL30S (£779.98).

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Most fridges of a comparable spec and age to the FAB30RVE1 do not have a water dispenser. The Smeg FAB30RVE1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water dispenser.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker

The FAB30RVE1 does not have an icemaker. Most of the other fridge freezers of a similar age and type to the FAB30RVE1 also do not have an icemaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

The Smeg FAB30RVE1 does not feature ice crushing. Most of the other fridge freezers of a similar age and type to the FAB30RVE1 also do not feature ice crushing.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

Like most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for a comparable time to the FAB30RVE1, the FAB30RVE1 does not have an AntiBacteria function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Humidifier Function

Like most of the other similar spec fridges that were launched around the same time as the FAB30RVE1, the FAB30RVE1 does 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).

Across all the similar spec fridge freezers that have been around for around the same time as the FAB30RVE1 the freezer capacities range from 2kg/24h to 17kg/24h, and the average freezer capacity is 8.6kg/24h. The FAB30RVE1 has one of the smaller freezer capacities (only 3 kilograms per 24 hours) amongst similar spec fridge freezers of this age.

Only Three Fridge Shelves Baskets

Most medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for more than two years have between 2 and 10 fridge shelves baskets, including the FAB30RVE1 which has three fridge shelves baskets.

Chart Edit

Very Small Total Gross Capacity

At only 296 liters, the FAB30RVE1 has a quite small total gross capacity compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that are a comparable age to the FAB30RVE1. The total gross capacity of fridges of this age and type range from 280L to 410L, and the average total gross capacity is 330L.
