4 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

This fridge has an energy efficiency classification of A++. The FAB30LR1 is in the cheapest 19% of all 487 fridges of this age and type that we have looked at for 24 year running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the FAB30LR1 is £499.

Fairly Large Fridge Net Capacity

Similar spec fridges that have been on the market for a comparable time to the FAB30LR1 have fridge net capacitys of between 130L and 340L. At 231 liters, the Smeg FAB30LR1 has a fairly large fridge net capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers of a similar type and age to the FAB30LR1.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

Medium total net capacity fridges that were released around the same time as the FAB30LR1 have noise levels of between 34dB and 48dB, and the average noise level is 41dB. At only 38 decibels, the FAB30LR1 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other fridge freezers that were released around the same time as the FAB30LR1.

There are a number of alternative 38dB noise level fridges currently available which you might also want to consider including the Gorenje RF60309 which has better reviews.

If you would consider a fridge with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Bosch KGE36AW40 (£520.00) (38dB).

13 Reasons Against

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

With a freezer net capacity of only 64 liters, the FAB30LR1 has one of the smaller freezer net capacitys amongst medium total net capacity fridges of this age. Fridge freezers of this age and type have freezer net capacitys of between 27L and 120L.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

With a storage time during power failure of only 15 hours, the FAB30LR1 has a fairly short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that came out more than two years ago. Across all the fridge freezers that are a similar age to the FAB30LR1 the storage time during power failures range from 4.5h to 46h.

Fridges with a longer storage time during power failure that might be worth considering include the LG GBB539SWCWS (£599.00) (16h).

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Like most of the other fridges of this age and type, the FAB30LR1 does not have a super Cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Like most of the other fridges of a comparable spec and age to the FAB30LR1, the Smeg FAB30LR1 does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Most similar spec fridges that were released around the same time as the FAB30LR1 do not have a water filter. The FAB30LR1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water filter.

We think you might also be interested in alternative fridges which also have a water filter including the Bosch KGW36XL30S (£769.28), or the Siemens KG36WXL30S (£732.44).

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

The FAB30LR1 does not have a water dispenser. Most of the other fridge freezers of a similar age and spec to the FAB30LR1 also do not have a water dispenser.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker

Like most of the other fridges of a similar age and spec to the FAB30LR1, the FAB30LR1 does not have an icemaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

Like most of the other fridges of a comparable type and age to the FAB30LR1, the Smeg FAB30LR1 does not feature ice crushing.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

Like most of the other fridges of a comparable age and type to the FAB30LR1, the FAB30LR1 does not have an AntiBacteria function.

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

Does Not Have a Humidifier Function

The FAB30LR1 does not have a humidifier function, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that came out more than two years ago also do not have a humidifier function.

Alternative fridges which also have a humidifier function that you might want to look at include the Siemens KG36VUL31.
