2 Reasons For

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The quietest noise level of medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for around the same time as the FAB30RBL1 is 34dB, the loudest is 48dB, and the average noise level is 41dB. The Smeg FAB30RBL1 has one of the quieter noise levels (only 38 decibels) amongst medium total net capacity fridges of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Connected Load

Fridge freezers of this age and spec have connected loads of between 14W and 320W, and the average connected load is 130W. With a connected load of only 100 Watts, the FAB30RBL1 has one of the lower connected loads amongst comparable spec fridge freezers of this age.

15 Reasons Against

Smeg Fridge Freezers Only Have Poor Reviews

We checked the reviews from experts and owners of hundreds of fridges to determine an average rating for each fridge manufacturer. On average fridge freezers from Smeg have poor reviews from experts and users.

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

Across all the fridges of a similar type and age to the FAB30RBL1 the freezer net capacitys range from 27L to 120L. At only 64 liters, the FAB30RBL1 has a fairly small freezer net capacity compared to most of the other fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago.

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 Siemens KG36NSW31 (66L).

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

With a storage time during power failure of only 15 hours, the Smeg FAB30RBL1 has a quite short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other fridge freezers of a similar spec and age to the FAB30RBL1. The average storage time during power failure of comparable spec fridge freezers that have been on the market for a similar time to the FAB30RBL1 is 20h.

If you would prefer a longer storage time during power failure then you might also want to look at the GBB539PZCWS (£499.99) (16h), or the GBF539NSQWB (£599.99) (16h) both from LG.

Only One Freezer Number of Shelves/baskets

The FAB30RBL1 is a one freezer number of shelves/baskets fridge.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Like most of the other fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as the FAB30RBL1, the FAB30RBL1 does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Most fridge freezers of this spec and age do not have a super Cool function. The Smeg FAB30RBL1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a super Cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Like most of the other similar spec fridges that were released more than two years ago, the Smeg FAB30RBL1 does not have a water filter.

It is worth considering alternative fridge freezers which also have a water filter including the Bosch KGW36XL30S (£561.85), or the Siemens KG36WXL30S (£732.44).

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

The FAB30RBL1 does not have a water dispenser, although keep in mind that most of the other similar spec fridges that came out more than two years ago also do not have a water dispenser.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker

Like most of the other fridge freezers of a comparable age and type to the FAB30RBL1, the Smeg FAB30RBL1 does not have an icemaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

Most fridges of this type and age do not feature ice crushing. The Smeg FAB30RBL1 is no exception to this as it too does not feature ice crushing.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

The FAB30RBL1 does not have an AntiBacteria function. Most of the other comparable spec fridges that came out around the same time as the FAB30RBL1 also do not have an AntiBacteria function.

We think you might also be interested in alternative fridges which also have an AntiBacteria function including the Samsung RB31FERND (£280.00).

Does Not Have a Humidifier Function

The FAB30RBL1 does not have a humidifier function. Most of the other comparable spec fridge freezers that have been around for a similar time to the FAB30RBL1 also do not have a humidifier function.

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

Quite Small Freezing Capacity

When compared to other medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for more than two years that we have checked, the freezing capacity of the FAB30RBL1 of only 3 kilograms per 24 hours is one of the smallest. Across all the comparable spec fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago the freezing capacitys range from 2kg/24h to 17kg/24h, and the average freezing capacity is 8.6kg/24h.

Chart Edit

Very Small Total Gross Capacity

The total gross capacitys of fridge freezers of a comparable age and spec to the FAB30RBL1 range from 280L to 640L, and the average total gross capacity is 330L. At only 296 liters, the FAB30RBL1 has a quite small total gross capacity compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that are a similar age to the FAB30RBL1.

Chart Edit

Only One Number of Vegetable Drawers

Most fridge freezers that have been on the market for more than two years have between one and four number of vegetable drawerss, including the FAB30RBL1 which has one number of vegetable drawers.
