3 Reasons For

Quite Quiet Noise Level

Across all the fridges of a comparable spec and age to the FAB30LBL1 the noise levels range from 34dB to 48dB. The FAB30LBL1 has one of the quieter noise levels (only 38 decibels) amongst fridge freezers of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 38dB noise level fridges currently available including the Gorenje RF60309 (£589.00) which has better reviews.

14 Reasons Against

Smeg Only Has Poor Fridge Reviews

Smeg fridge freezers have an average rating of 20%, which is in the bottom 10% of all fridge freezer brands that we have looked at.

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

The Smeg FAB30LBL1 has one of the smaller freezer net capacitys (only 64 liters) amongst medium total net capacity fridges of this age. Fridge freezers that are a similar age to the FAB30LBL1 have freezer net capacitys of between 27L and 120L.

If you want a fridge with a larger freezer net capacity then you might also want to consider the Siemens KG36NSW31 (66L).

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

Fridge freezers of a similar age and spec to the FAB30LBL1 have storage time during power failures of between 4.5h and 46h. The Smeg FAB30LBL1 has a fairly short storage time during power failure (only 15 hours) compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago.

Fridges with a longer storage time during power failure that might also be worth looking at include the KFC60W15 (£249.00) (16h), or the KFC60B15 (16h) both from Kenwood.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Most fridge freezers that were launched more than two years ago do not have a super Cool function. The FAB30LBL1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a super Cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Like most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago, the FAB30LBL1 does not have a water filter.

The Smeg FAB30LBL1 does not have a humidifier function, although keep in mind that most of the other fridge freezers of this age and type also do not have a humidifier function.

We compared all the other fridge freezers which also have a humidifier function to this fridge and we think the Siemens KG36VUL31 (£627.68) is also worth considering.
