2 Reasons For

Very Large Total Gross Capacity

The average total gross capacity of fridge freezers of this spec and age is 330L. When compared to other fridge freezers of a similar spec and age to the FAB40X1, the FAB40X1's total gross capacity of 400 liters is one of the largest.

Chart Edit

Short

When compared to other comparable spec fridges that have been around for around the same time as the FAB40X1 that we have checked the height of, the FAB40X1's height of only 770 millimeters is one of the shortest. Fridge freezers of this type and age have heights of between 770mm and 2,100mm, and the average height is 1,800mm.

If you would consider a fridge with a taller height then you might want to look at the Liebherr CUP 3021 (£239.00) (1,800mm).

11 Reasons Against

Poor Brand

We checked the reviews from experts and owners of hundreds of fridge freezers to determine an average rating for each fridge manufacturer. On average Smeg fridges have poor reviews from experts and users.

Running Costs Are Very High

Based on average energy prices we estimate that the FAB40X1 will cost £738 over 24 years to run, which is in the most expensive 12% of all 482 fridges of this spec and age.

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Most medium total net capacity fridges that were launched around the same time as the FAB40X1 do not have an air filter. The FAB40X1 is no exception to this as it too does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Like most of the other fridge freezers that have been around for around the same time as the FAB40X1, the Smeg FAB40X1 does not have a super cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

The FAB40X1 does not have a water filter, although keep in mind that most of the other fridge freezers of a similar type and age to the FAB40X1 also do not have a water filter.

There are a number of other fridge freezers which also have a water filter which you might also want to look at including the Siemens KG36WXL30S (£675.53), or the Bosch KGW36XL30S (£529.00).

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

The FAB40X1 does not have a water dispenser, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other fridges that were launched more than two years ago also do not have a water dispenser.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker

The Smeg FAB40X1 does not have an icemaker. Most of the other fridge freezers of this age and type also do not have an icemaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

The FAB40X1 does not feature ice crushing, although keep in mind that most of the other comparable spec fridge freezers that have been around for around the same time as the FAB40X1 also do not feature ice crushing.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

Most fridge freezers that were released around the same time as the FAB40X1 do not have an AntiBacteria function. The FAB40X1 is no exception to this as it too does not have an AntiBacteria function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Humidifier Function

The FAB40X1 does not have a humidifier function. Most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for more than two years also do not have a humidifier function.

We compared all the other fridge freezers which also have a humidifier function to this fridge freezer and we think the Siemens KG36VUL31 (£586.16) is also worth considering.

Quite Loud Noise Level

The average noise level of similar spec fridge freezers that were launched more than two years ago is 41dB, and the noise levels range from 34dB to 48dB. At 43 decibels, the FAB40X1 has a quite loud noise level compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that are a similar age to the FAB40X1.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might also want to look at the Bosch KGN36SM30 (£1,218.90) (43dB), or the Haier CFL633CS (£725.61) (43dB).

Chart Edit

Average Net Freezer Capacity

The FAB40X1 has a fairly standard net freezer capacity (76 liters) compared to most of the other fridges that are a similar age to the FAB40X1.

If you would prefer a larger net freezer capacity then you might also want to look at the S73200CNS0 (£699.75) (78L), or the S73402CN (£513.22) (78L) both from AEG.
