4 Reasons For

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The Smeg FAB30RB1 has one of the quieter noise levels (only 38 decibels) amongst medium total net capacity fridges of this age. The quietest noise level of medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for more than two years is 34dB and the loudest is 48dB.

Fridge freezers with a louder noise level that might also be worth looking at include the Panasonic NR-B32FX3[plb_1926761_price] (36dB), or the Electrolux ENN3153AOW[plb_1775629_price] (39dB) which is also cheaper.

16 Reasons Against

Smeg Only Has Poor Fridge Reviews

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

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

At only 64 liters, the FAB30RB1 has a quite small freezer net capacity compared to most of the other fridges of this spec and age. Fridges of this spec and age have freezer net capacitys of between 27L and 120L, and the average freezer net capacity is 83L.

We compared all the other 64L net freezer capacity fridge freezers to this fridge and we think the Electrolux ENN3153AOW[plb_1775629_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this fridge freezer net capacity is not large enough for you then you might also want to look at the Liebherr ICUS 3314[plb_1981800_price] (82L and cheaper).

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The FAB30RB1 has a quite short storage time during power failure (only 15 hours) compared to most of the other fridges that have been on the market for more than two years. The storage time during power failures of comparable spec fridge freezers that have been around for a similar time to the FAB30RB1 range from 4.5h to 46h, and the average storage time during power failure is 20h.

Other 15h storage time during power failure fridge freezers currently available which you might also want to consider include the De Dietrich DRC1027J[plb_1766767_price] which is cheaper.

If you would prefer a fridge with a longer storage time during power failure then you might want to consider the Siemens KG36NXL32[plb_2305246_price] (16h), or the Liebherr CTNESF 3663[plb_2207755_price] (20h) which is also cheaper.
