4 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

This fridge has an energy efficiency classification of A++. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the FAB30RX1 will cost £499 over 24 years to run, which makes it one of the more economic to run fridge freezers of this age and spec.

Short

Across all the comparable spec fridges that are a similar age to the FAB30RX1 the heights range from 770mm to 2,100mm, and the average height is 1,800mm. When compared to other fridges that were released more than two years ago, the height of the FAB30RX1 of only 1,688 millimeter is one of the shortest.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The quietest noise level of fridge freezers of a similar type and age to the FAB30RX1 is 34dB and the loudest is 48dB. With a noise level of only 38 decibels, the FAB30RX1 has one of the quieter noise levels amongst fridges of this age.

15 Reasons Against

Smeg Only Has Poor Fridge Reviews

Fridge freezers produced by Smeg have an average rating of 20 out of 100, which is in the bottom 10% of all fridge freezer manufacturers that we have analysed.

Quite Small Net Freezer Capacity

The net freezer capacities of medium total net capacity fridges that are a similar age to the FAB30RX1 range from 27L to 120L. At only 64 liters, the FAB30RX1 has a quite small net freezer capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers of this age and type.

If you would prefer a larger net freezer capacity then you might want to look at 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

The shortest storage time during power failure of medium total net capacity fridges that came out more than two years ago is 4h, the longest is 46h, and the average storage time during power failure is 20h. With a storage time during power failure of only 15 hours, the FAB30RX1 has one of the shorter storage times during power failure amongst fridge freezers of this age.

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