4 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

This medium total net capacity fridge freezer is rated A++ for energy efficiency. The FAB30LP1 is in the cheapest 20% of all 487 similar spec fridges that have been on the market for more than two years that we have analysed for 24 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the FAB30LP1 is £499.

Fairly Large Fridge Net Capacity

The fridge net capacitys of fridges of a similar spec and age to the FAB30LP1 range from 130L to 340L. At 231 liters, the FAB30LP1 has a quite large fridge net capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers that are a comparable age to the FAB30LP1.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The noise levels of fridge freezers of this age and spec range from 34dB to 48dB, and the average noise level is 41dB. The FAB30LP1 has a quite quiet noise level (only 38 decibels) compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that came out around the same time as the FAB30LP1.

There are a number of alternative 38dB noise level fridge freezers currently available that you might also want to look at including the Gorenje RF60309 which has better reviews.

Fridges with a louder noise level that might also be worth looking at include the Bosch KGE36AW40 (£520.00) (38dB).

Two Number of Vegetable Drawerss

The FAB30LP1 is a two number of vegetable drawers fridge. Most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that came out around the same time as the FAB30LP1 have between one and two number of vegetable drawerss.

Chart Edit

13 Reasons Against

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

With a freezer net capacity of only 64 liters, the FAB30LP1 has one of the smaller freezer net capacitys amongst medium total net capacity fridges of this age. The average freezer net capacity of medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for more than two years is 83L.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

With a storage time during power failure of only 15 hours, the FAB30LP1 has a quite short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other fridge freezers of this age and type. Medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for a similar time to the FAB30LP1 have storage time during power failures of between 4.5h and 46h, and the average storage time during power failure is 20h.

If you would prefer a fridge freezer with a longer storage time during power failure then you might want to look at the LG GBB539SWCWS (£599.00) (16h).

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Most fridge freezers that are a comparable age to the FAB30LP1 do not have a super Cool function. The Smeg FAB30LP1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a super Cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

The FAB30LP1 does not have an air filter, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec fridges that have been on the market for a comparable time to the FAB30LP1 also do not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Most medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for a similar time to the FAB30LP1 do not have a water filter. The FAB30LP1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water filter.

We compared all the other fridges which also have a water filter to this fridge and we think the Bosch KGW36XL30S (£769.28), or the Siemens KG36WXL30S (£732.44) is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Like most of the other comparable spec fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the FAB30LP1, the Smeg FAB30LP1 does not have a water dispenser.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker

The Smeg FAB30LP1 does not have an icemaker, although keep in mind that most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for around the same time as the FAB30LP1 also do not have an icemaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

Most fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as the FAB30LP1 do not feature ice crushing. The FAB30LP1 is no exception to this as it too does not feature ice crushing.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

The FAB30LP1 does not have an AntiBacteria function, although keep in mind that most of the other similar spec fridges that have been around for around the same time as the FAB30LP1 also do not have an AntiBacteria function.

We compared this fridge to all the other fridges with an AntiBacteria function and we think the Samsung RB31FERND (£340.00) is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Humidifier Function

The Smeg FAB30LP1 does not have a humidifier function, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other comparable spec fridge freezers that were released around the same time as the FAB30LP1 also do not have a humidifier function.

We think you might also be interested in alternative fridges which also have a humidifier function including the Siemens KG36VUL31.
