1 Reason For

Running Costs Are Low

Based on typical usage levels and energy prices we estimate that the FAB28QRO will cost £506 over 24 years to run, which is in the cheapest 12% of all 270 fridge freezers of this type and age.

13 Reasons Against

Smeg Fridge Freezers Only Have Poor Reviews

On average Smeg fridge freezers have poor ratings compared to other brands as do all fridges built by Smeg.

Quite Small Freezer Gross Capacity

Across all the fridge freezers that were launched more than two years ago the freezer gross capacitys range from 16L to 270L, and the average freezer gross capacity is 120L. At only 26 liters, the Smeg FAB28QRO has a very small freezer gross capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers that have been on the market for around the same time as the FAB28QRO.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker

The FAB28QRO does not have an icemaker, although it is worth noting that most of the other fridge freezers of a similar spec and age to the FAB28QRO also do not have an icemaker.

There are a number of other fridge freezers which also have an icemaker that you might also want to look at including the Beko GNE 114610 APX[plb_2662500_price], or the Samsung RF24FSEDBSR[plb_2662664_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

The Smeg FAB28QRO does not have a water dispenser. Most of the other fridge freezers that were launched more than two years ago also do not have a water dispenser.

We compared this fridge to all the other fridge freezers with a water dispenser and we think the Samsung RF24FSEDBSR[plb_2662664_price] or the Bosch KAD62V40GB[plb_2662508_price] are also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Like most of the other fridge freezers that have been around for around the same time as the FAB28QRO, the Smeg FAB28QRO does not have a water filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Most fridges of this type and age do not have an air filter. The FAB28QRO is no exception to this as it too does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

The FAB28QRO does not feature ice crushing. Most of the other similar spec fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the FAB28QRO also do not feature ice crushing.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Like most of the other similar spec fridges that came out around the same time as the FAB28QRO, the Smeg FAB28QRO does not have a super Cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

The FAB28QRO does not have an AntiBacteria function, although keep in mind that most of the other fridge freezers that have been on the market for around the same time as the FAB28QRO also do not have an AntiBacteria function.

Chart Edit

Like most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable age and type to the FAB28QRO, the FAB28QRO does not have a humidifier function.

Chart Edit

Very Small Freezing Capacity

The Smeg FAB28QRO has a fairly small freezing capacity (only 2 kilograms per 24 hours) compared to most of the other comparable spec fridges that have been available for around the same time as the FAB28QRO. The average freezing capacity of fridge freezers that have been available for a comparable time to the FAB28QRO is 5.8kg/24h, and the freezing capacitys range from 1kg/24h to 16kg/24h.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Total Gross Capacity

With a total gross capacity of only 256 liters, the FAB28QRO has one of the smaller total gross capacitys amongst fridge freezers of this age. The total gross capacitys of similar spec fridges that have been on the market for more than two years range from 6.1L to 18,000L.

Chart Edit

Expensive

We checked 150 comparable spec fridge freezers that were launched more than two years ago and they range in price from £90 to £2,072. We think that this fridge freezer looks expensive compared to other comparable spec fridge freezers that were launched more than two years ago.
