2 Reasons For

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The FAB30LV1 has a fairly quiet noise level (only 38 decibels) compared to most of the other fridges of a comparable age and spec to the FAB30LV1. The average noise level of medium total net capacity fridges that were released around the same time as the FAB30LV1 is 41dB, and the noise levels range from 34dB to 48dB.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 38dB noise level fridge freezers currently available including because of it's better review score, the Gorenje RF60309.

Other fridges with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Bosch KGE36AW40 (£520.00) (38dB).

Two Number of Vegetable Drawerss

The FAB30LV1 is a two number of vegetable drawers fridge. Most of the other fridge freezers that have been available for around the same time as the FAB30LV1 have between one and four number of vegetable drawerss.

14 Reasons Against

Smeg Fridge Freezers Only Have Poor Reviews

On average fridge freezers made by Smeg are rated 20%, which is in the bottom 10% of all fridge brands that we have analysed.

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

At only 64 liters, the FAB30LV1 has a fairly small freezer net capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable age and spec to the FAB30LV1. Fridges of a similar type and age to the FAB30LV1 have freezer net capacitys of between 27L and 120L.

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

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The average storage time during power failure of fridge freezers of a comparable age and type to the FAB30LV1 is 20h. At only 15 hours, the Smeg FAB30LV1 has a quite short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable spec and age to the FAB30LV1.

If this fridge storage time during power failure is not long enough for you then you might also want to consider the Bosch KGN36XI32 (£554.00) (16h), or the LG GBB539SWCWS (£599.00) (16h).

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Most comparable spec fridge freezers that are a similar age to the FAB30LV1 do not have an air filter. The FAB30LV1 is no exception to this as it too does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Like most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable spec and age to the FAB30LV1, the Smeg FAB30LV1 does not have a super Cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Like most of the other similar spec fridges that are a comparable age to the FAB30LV1, the FAB30LV1 does not have a water filter.

We compared all the other fridge freezers which also have a water filter to this fridge freezer and we think the Bosch KGW36XL30S, or the Siemens KG36WXL30S (£734.61) is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Like most of the other fridges that have been around for a similar time to the FAB30LV1, the FAB30LV1 does not have a water dispenser.

Chart Edit

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

The FAB30LV1 does not feature ice crushing, although it is worth noting that most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable age and type to the FAB30LV1 also do not feature ice crushing.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

The Smeg FAB30LV1 does not have an AntiBacteria function, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for a comparable time to the FAB30LV1 also do not have an AntiBacteria function.

We compared all the other fridge freezers which also have an AntiBacteria function to this fridge and we think the Samsung RB31FERND (£280.00) is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Humidifier Function

Like most of the other comparable spec fridges that were released more than two years ago, the FAB30LV1 does not have a humidifier function.

It is worth also looking at alternative fridge freezers which also have a humidifier function including the Siemens KG36VUL31.
