When compared to other Built-in refrigerators that are a similar age to the S3L172FP that we have checked the net capacity of, the S3L172FP's net capacity of 319 liters is one of the biggest.

Similar spec fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the S3L172FP have widths of between 530mm and 700mm, and the average width is 560mm.

If you are not bothered about having a wider width then you might want to consider the Baumatic BR201.5 (£299.00) (540mm), or the Candy CFLO 3550 E (£379.00) (540mm).

Other refrigerators with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Zanussi ZBA32050SA (£379.00) (34dB), the Liebherr IKS 1610 (£495.94) (34dB), or the Smeg S7323LFEP (£609.99) (34dB).

3 Reasons Against

Running Costs Are High

This Built-in fridge is rated A+ for energy efficiency, however the S3L172FP is in the most expensive 5% of all 83 refrigerators of this type and age that we have analysed for 24 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the S3L172FP is £336.

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Most Built-in refrigerators that are a comparable age to the S3L172FP do not have a water dispenser. The S3L172FP is no exception to this as it too does not have a water dispenser.

Alternative refrigerators which also have a water dispenser that you might want to consider include the HS1622 (£230.00), the HUL1622 (£259.00), or the HS2322L (£349.99) all from Hotpoint.

Very Tall

The heights of fridges that were launched around the same time as the S3L172FP range from 800mm to 1,800mm.

If you would consider a fridge with a taller height then you might want to look at the Siemens KI81RAF30G (£749.99) (1,772mm), the Bosch KIR81AF30 (£696.01) (1,772mm), or the Neff KI1813F30G (£755.99) (1,772mm).
