3 Reasons For

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 38 decibels, the FAB30LVE1 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other fridge freezers that were released around the same time as the FAB30LVE1. The noise levels of fridges of this age and spec range from 34dB to 48dB.

If you don't mind having a louder noise level then you might also want to consider the Liebherr CBPesf 4043 (£1,154.95) (38dB).

15 Reasons Against

Smeg Only Has Poor Reviews for Its Fridges

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

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

The smallest freezer net capacity of comparable spec fridge freezers that have been available for more than two years is 27L and the largest is 120L. With a freezer net capacity of only 64 liters, the Smeg FAB30LVE1 has one of the smaller freezer net capacitys amongst similar spec fridges of this age.

If this medium total net capacity fridge freezer freezer net capacity is not large enough for you then you might also want to look at the Bosch KGN36H90 (66L).

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

At only 15 hours, the Smeg FAB30LVE1 has a fairly short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other fridges of a comparable age and type to the FAB30LVE1. The shortest storage time during power failure of medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for around the same time as the FAB30LVE1 is 4.5h and the longest is 46h.

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

Only One Freezer Number of Shelves/baskets

The FAB30LVE1 is a one freezer number of shelves/baskets fridge freezer.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Like most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that are a similar age to the FAB30LVE1, the FAB30LVE1 does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

The FAB30LVE1 does not have a super Cool function. Most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for a comparable time to the FAB30LVE1 also do not have a super Cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Like most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for a comparable time to the FAB30LVE1, the FAB30LVE1 does not have a water filter.

We think you might also be interested in other fridges which also have a water filter including the Bosch KGW36XL30S (£561.85), or the Siemens KG36WXL30S (£745.71).

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

The FAB30LVE1 does not have an AntiBacteria function. Most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable spec and age to the FAB30LVE1 also do not have an AntiBacteria function.

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

Does Not Have a Humidifier Function

Most fridges of a similar age and type to the FAB30LVE1 do not have a humidifier function. The Smeg FAB30LVE1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a humidifier function.

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