5 Reasons For

Shallow

With a depth of only 560 millimeters, the Smeg FAB5 is quite shallow compared to most of the other refrigerators that came out more than two years ago. The depths of comparable spec fridges that have been around for a similar time to the FAB5 range from 320mm to 800mm.

Other refrigerators with a deeper depth that you might want to look at include the Gorenje RVC6169W[plb_1652999_price] (600mm and cheaper), or the Exquisit KS 17[plb_1660605_price] (574mm and cheaper).

Very Short

The Smeg FAB5 is quite short (only 715 millimeters) compared to most of the other Freestanding refrigerators that have been around for a similar time to the FAB5. Across all the Freestanding refrigerators that were launched around the same time as the FAB5 the heights range from 460mm to 2,100mm.

If you would consider a fridge with a taller height then you might want to look at the Exquisit KS 17[plb_1660605_price] (845mm and cheaper).

Narrow

Across all the fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the FAB5 the widths range from 380mm to 1,800mm. When compared to other refrigerators of a comparable age and spec to the FAB5 that we have checked, the Smeg FAB5's width of only 404 millimeters is one of the narrowest.

If you don't mind having a wider width then you might also want to look at the Avanti SHP1700W[plb_1653234_price] (431.8mm and cheaper).

Quite Low Connected Load

Across all the fridges of a similar type and age to the FAB5 the connected loads range from 50W to 200W. When compared to other fridges of this age and type that we have checked the connected load of, the Smeg FAB5's connected load of only 50 Watts is one of the lowest.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 29 decibels, the Smeg FAB5 has a very quiet noise level compared to most of the other Freestanding refrigerators that have been on the market for more than two years. Across all the Freestanding refrigerators that were released more than two years ago the noise levels range from 29dB to 48dB, and the average noise level is 40dB.

Other fridges with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the AEG S32501KSW1[plb_1648732_price] (38dB and cheaper).

5 Reasons Against

High Running Costs

This refrigerator is rated E for energy efficiency. The FAB5 has an average 24 year running cost of £654 based on typical energy prices, which makes it one of the more expensive to run fridges of a comparable type and age.

Quite Small Gross Capacity

At only 42 liters, the Smeg FAB5 has a very small gross capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec fridges that have been on the market for more than two years. Refrigerators that were released more than two years ago have gross capacities of between 39L and 670L.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Net Capacity

The average net capacity of Freestanding refrigerators that came out around the same time as the FAB5 is 230L, and the net capacities range from 14L to 400L. The Smeg FAB5 has one of the smaller net capacities (only 40 liters) amongst refrigerators of this age.

If this Smeg fridge net capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the Liebherr TP 1410[plb_2196483_price] (138L) which is also cheaper.

Only Two Shelves/basketss

Most refrigerators of a comparable age and type to the FAB5 have between one and eight shelves/basketss, including the Smeg FAB5 which has two shelves/basketss.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Most fridges of this type and age do not have a water dispenser. The Smeg FAB5 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water dispenser.

We compared all the other fridges which also have a water dispenser to this fridge and we think the Beko LP 1671 DB[plb_2962443_price] is also worth considering.
