4 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

This Smeg fridge is rated A++ for energy efficiency. The FAB28LCS1 is in the cheapest 11% of all 402 small total net capacity fridge freezers that were launched more than two years ago that we have assessed for running costs. Based on average usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the FAB28LCS1 will cost £423 over 24 years to run.

Quite Large Fridge Net Capacity

The average fridge net capacity of fridges of a comparable type and age to the FAB28LCS1 is 180L. The Smeg FAB28LCS1 has a very large fridge net capacity (222 liters) compared to most of the other fridges that were released around the same time as the FAB28LCS1.

If this small total net capacity fridge freezer fridge net capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Haier HRFZ386[plb_1483755_price] (227L), or the Baumatic BRCIF5050[plb_2962343_price] (232L).

13 Reasons Against

Smeg Only Has Poor Fridge Reviews

We checked the reviews from experts and users of hundreds of fridges to determine an average rating for each fridge freezer manufacturer. On average fridge freezers manufactured by Smeg have poor reviews from users and experts.

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

When compared to other comparable spec fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the FAB28LCS1, the freezer net capacity of the Smeg FAB28LCS1 of only 26 liters is one of the smallest. The freezer net capacitys of comparable spec fridges that have been around for around the same time as the FAB28LCS1 range from 16L to 240L, and the average freezer net capacity is 60L.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The shortest storage time during power failure of small total net capacity fridge freezers that have been available for more than two years is 3.5h and the longest is 46h. At only 12 hours, the Smeg FAB28LCS1 has a fairly short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other fridges of this age and type.

If you want a fridge with a longer storage time during power failure then you might want to look at the Indesit CAA 55[plb_2662607_price] (13h), or the Siemens KI86NAF30[plb_1910680_price] (13h).
