3 Reasons For

Shallow

With a depth of only 560 millimeters, the Smeg FAB5RNE1 is quite shallow compared to most of the other Freestanding fridges that have been around for more than a year. The depths of refrigerators that are a similar age to the FAB5RNE1 range from 450mm to 850mm.

Refrigerators with a deeper depth that might also be worth looking at include the FAB5RO1[pl_3061623_price] (560mm), or the FAB5RR1[pl_3062917_price] (560mm) both from Smeg or the Neff KI1413D40[plb_3022548_price] (545mm).

Very Short

With a height of only 715 millimeters, the FAB5RNE1 is one of the shorter refrigerators of a comparable age and spec to the FAB5RNE1 amongst refrigerators of this age. The average height of Freestanding fridges that have been available for a similar time to the FAB5RNE1 is 1,400mm, and the heights range from 520mm to 2,100mm.

If you would consider a refrigerator with a taller height then you might want to look at the Bosch KIR21AF40[plb_3060668_price] (874mm) which is also cheaper.

Narrow

The narrowest refrigerator of a comparable age and type to the FAB5RNE1 is 400mm wide and the widest is 820mm. With a width of only 404 millimeters, the FAB5RNE1 is one of the narrower similar spec refrigerators that have been available for more than a year amongst Freestanding fridges of this age.

If you would consider a fridge with a wider width then you might want to look at the FAB5RO1[pl_3061623_price] (404mm), or the FAB5RR1[pl_3062917_price] (404mm) both from Smeg or the Neff KI1413D40[plb_3022548_price] (558mm).

7 Reasons Against

Very Small Gross Capacity

The gross capacities of fridges of this age and type range from 42L to 700L. The Smeg FAB5RNE1 has a quite small gross capacity (only 42 liters) compared to most of the other comparable spec refrigerators that have been available for around the same time as the FAB5RNE1.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Net Capacity

Refrigerators that were released more than a year ago have net capacities of between 32L and 530L. With a net capacity of only 32 liters, the FAB5RNE1 has one of the smallest net capacities amongst comparable spec fridges of this age.

If you are looking for a refrigerator with a bigger net capacity then you might also want to look at the Candy CCDS5144W[plb_3287592_price] (166L), the Exquisit KS325-4[plb_3106883_price] (240L), or the Bosch KSV33VW30G[plb_3287571_price] (324L) which is also cheaper.

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

The Smeg FAB5RNE1 does not have a water dispenser. Most of the other fridges of this age and spec also do not have a water dispenser.

There are a number of other refrigerators which also have a water dispenser which you might also want to look at including the Samsung RR35H6610BC[plb_2882003_price].

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Operating Temperature
