5 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

This fridge is rated A++ for energy efficiency. The FAB30LO1 is one of the more economic to run comparable spec fridges that were released more than two years ago that we have looked at for 24 year running costs. Based on typical energy prices and usage levels, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the FAB30LO1 is £499.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

With a noise level of only 38 decibels, the FAB30LO1 has one of the quieter noise levels amongst comparable spec fridge freezers of this age. The average noise level of fridges of this age and spec is 41dB.

We compared all the other 38dB noise level fridge freezers to this fridge and we think because of it's better review score, the Gorenje RF60309 is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Four Fridge Number of Shelves/basketss

The FAB30LO1 is a four fridge number of shelves/baskets fridge freezer. Most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for a similar time to the FAB30LO1 have between 2 and 10 fridge number of shelves/basketss.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Connected Load

The average connected load of fridge freezers of this age and spec is 130W, and the connected loads range from 14W to 320W. With a connected load of only 100 Watts, the Smeg FAB30LO1 has a quite low connected load compared to most of the other fridge freezers of a similar age and spec to the FAB30LO1.

15 Reasons Against

Poor Brand

Fridges built by Smeg are some of the less good fridges according to average reviews from owners and experts.

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

At only 64 liters, the Smeg FAB30LO1 has a quite small freezer net capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers that have been around for a similar time to the FAB30LO1. The smallest freezer net capacity of fridges of a similar age and type to the FAB30LO1 is 27L and the largest is 120L.

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The Smeg FAB30LO1 has a fairly short storage time during power failure (only 15 hours) compared to most of the other fridges that have been around for around the same time as the FAB30LO1.

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