At only 540 millimeters, the LEC L5010W is quite shallow compared to most of the other fridges of a comparable spec and age to the L5010W. The shallowest fridge of this type and age is 470mm deep and the deepest is 640mm.
If you would consider a fridge with a deeper depth then you might want to look at the LEC R5010W (£120.00) (574mm and cheaper), or the Essentials CUL55W12 (£99.99) (574mm and cheaper).
The narrowest fridge of a comparable spec and age to the L5010W is 440mm wide, the widest is 600mm, and the average width is 540mm. The LEC L5010W is one of the narrower fridges of this type and age (only 501 millimeters) amongst Undercounter refrigerators of this age.
We compared this fridge to all the other 501mm wide fridges and we think cheaper refrigerators such as the LEC R5010W (£120.00) is also worth considering.
If you don't mind having a wider width then you might want to look at the CUL50W12 (£99.99) (494mm), or the CUR50W12 (£109.99) (494mm) both from Essentials which is also cheaper.

Average Noise Level
At 40 decibels, the LEC L5010W has a pretty typical noise level compared to most of the other refrigerators of this spec and age.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 40dB noise level fridges currently available including cheaper fridges such as the LEC R5010W (£120.00).
Other fridges with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the TFAA 10 S (£138.00) (39dB), or the TFAA 10 (£129.99) (39dB) both from Indesit.
At 845 millimeters, the LEC L5010W has a pretty typical height compared to most of the other comparable spec refrigerators that were launched around the same time as the L5010W.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 845mm high refrigerators currently available including the LEC R5010W (£120.00), or the Essentials CUL55W12 (£99.99) which is cheaper.
Fridges with a taller height that might also be worth considering include the Logik LUL55B13 (£129.99) (845mm).
