2 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Very Low

The energy efficiency classification of this fridge is A++, and based on average energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the 24 year running cost of the FAB28LNE1 is £423, which makes it one of the most economic to run fridge freezers of this age and type.

Very Low Connected Load

The connected loads of fridge freezers that were launched more than two years ago range from 70W to 220W, and the average connected load is 120W. With a connected load of only 90 Watts, the FAB28LNE1 has a fairly low connected load compared to most of the other fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago.

14 Reasons Against

Smeg Only Has Poor Fridge Freezer Reviews

Smeg is one of the less good fridge freezer manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and owners, and Smeg also has poor ratings for its fridge freezers.

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

The average freezer net capacity of similar spec fridges that have been available for more than two years is 75L, and the freezer net capacitys range from 26L to 160L. With a freezer net capacity of only 26 liters, the FAB28LNE1 has one of the smaller freezer net capacitys amongst fridges of this age.

If you are looking for a larger freezer net capacity then you might want to look at the Candy CCDS 5144 (£347.43) (38L).

The shortest storage time during power failure of comparable spec fridge freezers that were released around the same time as the FAB28LNE1 is 9h, the longest is 33h, and the average storage time during power failure is 18h.
