5 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

This medium total net capacity fridge freezer is rated A++ for energy efficiency, and the FAB30LRO1 is one of the more economic to run fridges of this spec and age that we have looked at for 24 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the FAB30LRO1 is £499.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

With a noise level of only 38 decibels, the FAB30LRO1 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other fridge freezers of this age and type. The noise levels of fridge freezers of a similar age and type to the FAB30LRO1 range from 34dB to 48dB.

Other 38dB noise level fridge freezers currently available that you might want to consider include because of it's better review score, the Gorenje RF60309.

Quite Low Connected Load

The Smeg FAB30LRO1 has one of the lower connected loads (only 100 Watts) amongst similar spec fridge freezers of this age. Fridge freezers that have been available for a comparable time to the FAB30LRO1 have connected loads of between 14W and 320W.

15 Reasons Against

Smeg Only Has Poor Reviews for Its Fridges

Fridges manufactured by Smeg generally have poor ratings compared to other brands.

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

The average freezer net capacity of fridges of this age and type is 83L. At only 64 liters, the FAB30LRO1 has a fairly small freezer net capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers that have been available for around the same time as the FAB30LRO1.

If this fridge freezer freezer net capacity is not large enough for you then you might also want to consider the Siemens KG36NSW31 (66L).

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

Across all the fridges that have been around for around the same time as the FAB30LRO1 the storage time during power failures range from 4.5h to 46h, and the average storage time during power failure is 20h. At only 15 hours, the FAB30LRO1 has a fairly short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other fridges of a similar age and type to the FAB30LRO1.

If you would prefer a fridge with a longer storage time during power failure then you might want to consider the KFC60W15 (£249.00) (16h), or the KFC60B15 (16h) both from Kenwood.

Does Not Have a Water Filter

The FAB30LRO1 does not have a water filter, although keep in mind that most of the other comparable spec fridge freezers that have been around for around the same time as the FAB30LRO1 also do not have a water filter.

We compared all the other fridge freezers which also have a water filter to this fridge and we think the Bosch KGW36XL30S (£561.85), or the Siemens KG36WXL30S (£732.44) is also worth considering.

We compared this fridge to all the other fridges with a humidifier function and we think the Siemens KG36VUL31 (£616.50) is also worth considering.
