Energy

High Running Costs

This Smeg freezer has an energy efficiency classification of A+, however the VI205PNF has an average 24 year running cost of £717 based on typical energy prices, which makes it one of the less economic to run freezers of this age and spec.


Ergonomics

Has a Temperature Alarm

The VI205PNF has a temperature alarm, as do most of the other medium freezer net capacity freezers that were launched around the same time as this freezer.

Performance

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The Smeg VI205PNF has one of the shortest storage time during power failures (only 8 hours) amongst freezers of this age. Across all the similar spec freezers that have been around for a comparable time to this freezer the storage time during power failures range from 8h to 110h.

If this Smeg freezer storage time during power failure is too short for you then you might want to look at the Bosch GIN38A55GB (£749.99) (11h), the Neff G4655X7GB (£800) (11h), or the Exquisit GS 175-1 (12h).

Very Small Freezing Capacity

The freezing capacities of medium freezer net capacity freezers that have been on the market for more than two years range from 8kg/24h to 30kg/24h. At only 10 kilograms per 24 hours, the VI205PNF has a quite small freezing capacity compared to most of the other freezers of this spec and age.

What does "freezing capacity" mean? Less Chart Hide Chart Edit

Quite High Noise Level

Across all the medium freezer net capacity freezers that are a comparable age to this freezer the noise levels range from 37dB to 45dB, and the average noise level is 41dB. At 42 decibels, the VI205PNF has a quite high noise level compared to most of the other medium freezer net capacity freezers that are a similar age to this freezer.

We compared this freezer to all the other 42dB noise level freezers and we think the Bosch GSV36VW30 (£649.99) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Other freezers with a higher noise level that you might want to look at include the GS36NAI31 (£680) (42dB), or the GS36NBI30 (£739) (42dB) both from Siemens.

If you want a higher freezer net capacity then you might want to look at the Electrolux EUX2245AO (£589.99) (208L and cheaper), or the Siemens GS36DPI20 (£995) (210L and cheaper).
