3 Reasons For

Shallow

Refrigerators that are a comparable age to the FAB5RO1 have depths of between 450mm and 850mm. With a depth of only 560 millimeters, the FAB5RO1 is fairly shallow compared to most of the other Freestanding fridges that were released one year ago.

Refrigerators with a deeper depth that might also be worth looking at include the FAB5RNE1[pl_3061622_price] (560mm), or the FAB5RR1[pl_3062917_price] (560mm) both from Smeg or the Neff KI1413D40[plb_3022548_price] (545mm).

Very Short

The Smeg FAB5RO1 is one of the shorter refrigerators that came out around the same time as the FAB5RO1 (only 715 millimeters) amongst comparable spec fridges of this age. Across all the comparable spec fridges that have been around for a similar time to the FAB5RO1 the heights range from 520mm to 2,100mm, and the average height is 1,400mm.

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

At only 404 millimeters, the Smeg FAB5RO1 is very narrow compared to most of the other fridges of a comparable spec and age to the FAB5RO1. The widths of fridges of a comparable age and spec to the FAB5RO1 range from 400mm to 820mm.

If you are not bothered about having a wider width then you might want to look at the FAB5RNE1[pl_3061622_price] (404mm), or the FAB5RR1[pl_3062917_price] (404mm) both from Smeg or the Neff KI1413D40[plb_3022548_price] (558mm).

8 Reasons Against

Quite Small Net Capacity

At only 32 liters, the Smeg FAB5RO1 has a quite small net capacity compared to most of the other Freestanding fridges that came out around the same time as the FAB5RO1. Across all the fridges that were released around the same time as the FAB5RO1 the net capacities range from 32L to 530L, and the average net capacity is 250L.

If this Freestanding refrigerator net capacity is too small for you 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.

Very Small Gross Capacity

At only 42 liters, the Smeg FAB5RO1 has a fairly small gross capacity compared to most of the other Freestanding fridges that have been around for a similar time to the FAB5RO1. The smallest gross capacity of similar spec refrigerators that were launched around the same time as the FAB5RO1 is 42L and the biggest is 700L.

Chart Edit

Running Costs Are High

This refrigerator is rated D for energy efficiency, and the FAB5RO1 is one of the more expensive to run refrigerators of a similar age and type that we have analysed for running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the FAB5RO1 will cost £644 over 24 years to run.

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Most Freestanding fridges that have been available for more than a year do not have a water dispenser. The FAB5RO1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water dispenser.

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

Only Two Door Balconies

The FAB5RO1 is a two door balcony refrigerator.

Chart Edit

Only Two Shelves/basketss

The Smeg FAB5RO1 is a two shelves/baskets fridge. Most of the other Freestanding fridges that have been around for a comparable time to the FAB5RO1 have between two and seven shelves/basketss.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Operating Temperature

The maximum operating temperatures of fridges of a similar age and type to the FAB5RO1 range from 32°C to 43°C. With a maximum operating temperature of only 32 degrees celcius, the FAB5RO1 has a quite small maximum operating temperature compared to most of the other similar spec refrigerators that came out around the same time as the FAB5RO1.

Chart Edit

Expensive

The cheapeast refrigerators of a comparable type and age that we found costs £121 and the most expensive costs £1,406. We think that this refrigerator looks expensive for a Freestanding refrigerator that came out more than a year ago.
