3 Reasons For

Quite Large Fridge Net Capacity

With a fridge net capacity of 231 liters, the Smeg FAB30LX1 has one of the larger fridge net capacitys amongst medium total net capacity fridges of this age. The fridge net capacitys of fridge freezers of this age and spec range from 130L to 340L.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

Fridge freezers of this spec and age have noise levels of between 34dB and 48dB. With a noise level of only 38 decibels, the FAB30LX1 has one of the quieter noise levels amongst medium total net capacity fridges of this age.

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

13 Reasons Against

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

Across all the fridges of this spec and age the freezer net capacitys range from 27L to 120L, and the average freezer net capacity is 83L. At only 64 liters, the Smeg FAB30LX1 has a quite small freezer net capacity compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The average storage time during power failure of fridges that were released more than two years ago is 20h. At only 15 hours, the Smeg FAB30LX1 has a quite short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other comparable spec fridges that were released around the same time as the FAB30LX1.

If you want a longer storage time during power failure then you might want to consider the Siemens KG36NXL32 (16h), or the LG GBF539NSQWB (£599.99) (16h).

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Most fridges of a similar type and age to the FAB30LX1 do not have a super Cool function. The FAB30LX1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a super Cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

The FAB30LX1 does not have an air filter. Most of the other fridge freezers of this spec and age also do not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

The FAB30LX1 does not have a water filter. Most of the other fridges of a similar type and age to the FAB30LX1 also do not have a water filter.

It is worth also looking at other fridges which also have a water filter including the Bosch KGW36XL30S, or the Siemens KG36WXL30S (£732.44).

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

The FAB30LX1 does not have a water dispenser, although this is within the context that most of the other fridges that have been around for more than two years also do not have a water dispenser.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker

The FAB30LX1 does not have an icemaker. Most of the other fridges of this age and spec also do not have an icemaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

The Smeg FAB30LX1 does not have an AntiBacteria function, although it is worth noting that most of the other fridge freezers of this age and type also do not have an AntiBacteria function.

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

There are a number of alternative fridges which also have a humidifier function which you might want to look at including the Siemens KG36VUL31.
