4 Reasons For

Very Low Current

The FAB5LR1 has one of the lower currents (only 0.3 ampere) amongst Freestanding fridges of this age. The average current of fridges that were launched around the same time as the FAB5LR1 is 6.7A, and the currents range from 0.3A to 20A.

Chart Edit

Very Short

The average height of fridges of a similar age and type to the FAB5LR1 is 1,400mm, and the heights range from 520mm to 2,100mm. At only 730 millimeters, the Smeg FAB5LR1 is quite short compared to most of the other refrigerators of a comparable spec and age to the FAB5LR1.

If you don't mind having a taller height then you might want to consider the FAB5RNE1[pl_3061622_price] (715mm), the FAB5RO1[pl_3061623_price] (715mm), or the FAB5RR1[pl_3062917_price] (715mm) all from Smeg.

Shallow

With a depth of only 520 millimeters, the Smeg FAB5LR1 is fairly shallow compared to most of the other fridges of this age and type. Freestanding fridges that are a comparable age to the FAB5LR1 have depths of between 450mm and 850mm, and the average depth is 620mm.

If you don't mind having a deeper depth then you might also want to look at the Bosch KIR21AF40[plb_3060668_price] (545mm) which is also cheaper.

Very Narrow

The average width of fridges of this type and age is 570mm, and the widths range from 400mm to 820mm. With a width of only 404 millimeters, the FAB5LR1 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other Freestanding fridges that are a comparable age to the FAB5LR1.

Fridges with a wider width that might also be worth looking at include the FAB5RNE1[pl_3061622_price] (404mm), the FAB5RO1[pl_3061623_price] (404mm), or the FAB5RR1[pl_3062917_price] (404mm) all from Smeg.

6 Reasons Against

High Running Costs

This Smeg refrigerator has an energy efficiency classification of D, and the FAB5LR1 is one of the less economic to run similar spec fridges that came out more than a year ago that we have looked at for 24 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the FAB5LR1 is £644.

Very Small Net Capacity

Refrigerators of this spec and age have net capacities of between 32L and 530L, and the average net capacity is 250L. The Smeg FAB5LR1 has a quite small net capacity (only 32 liters) compared to most of the other Freestanding fridges that are a similar age to the FAB5LR1.

If this refrigerator net capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the KSV33VW30G[pl_3287571_price] (324L), or the KSV36AW31G[pl_3287572_price] (346L) both from Bosch or the Candy CCDS5144W[plb_3287592_price] (166L) which is also cheaper.

Quite Small Gross Capacity

Freestanding fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the FAB5LR1 have gross capacities of between 42L and 700L, and the average gross capacity is 260L. When compared to other comparable spec fridges that are a similar age to the FAB5LR1 that we have assessed, the gross capacity of the FAB5LR1 of only 42 liters is one of the smallest.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

The Smeg FAB5LR1 does not have a water dispenser. Most of the other comparable spec refrigerators that were launched more than a year ago also do not have a water dispenser.

Other fridges which also have a water dispenser that you might also want to consider include the Samsung RR35H6610BC[plb_2882003_price].
