1 Reason For

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The quietest noise level of similar spec fridge freezers that have been available for more than two years is 34dB and the loudest is 48dB. At only 38 decibels, the FAB30RO1 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other similar spec fridges that have been on the market for a comparable time to the FAB30RO1.

We compared this fridge freezer to all the other 38dB noise level fridges and we think the Gorenje RF60309 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

12 Reasons Against

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

The average freezer net capacity of fridges of a similar spec and age to the FAB30RO1 is 83L, and the freezer net capacitys range from 27L to 120L. The FAB30RO1 has a quite small freezer net capacity (only 64 liters) compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that were released around the same time as the FAB30RO1.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

With a storage time during power failure of only 15 hours, the FAB30RO1 has one of the shorter storage time during power failures amongst medium total net capacity fridges of this age. The shortest storage time during power failure of fridges that have been around for a similar time to the FAB30RO1 is 4.5h, the longest is 46h, and the average storage time during power failure is 20h.

If this Smeg fridge storage time during power failure is too short for you then you might want to look at the Kenwood KFC60W15 (£249.00) (16h).

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Most fridges of this spec and age do not have a super Cool function. The FAB30RO1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a super Cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

The Smeg FAB30RO1 does not have an air filter. Most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago also do not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

Like most of the other fridge freezers of a similar type and age to the FAB30RO1, the FAB30RO1 does not have a water filter.

It is worth also looking at alternative fridges which also have a water filter including the Bosch KGW36XL30S (£769.28), or the Siemens KG36WXL30S (£732.44).

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Like most of the other fridge freezers of this type and age, the FAB30RO1 does not have a water dispenser.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker

Like most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for more than two years, the Smeg FAB30RO1 does not have an icemaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

The Smeg FAB30RO1 does not feature ice crushing, although keep in mind that most of the other fridges of this age and type also do not feature ice crushing.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

Like most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for more than two years, the FAB30RO1 does not have an AntiBacteria function.

It is worth also looking at alternative fridges which also have an AntiBacteria function including the Samsung RB31FERND (£340.00).

Does Not Have a Humidifier Function

Most medium total net capacity fridges that have been around for a similar time to the FAB30RO1 do not have a humidifier function. The FAB30RO1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a humidifier function.

Alternative fridge freezers which also have a humidifier function that you might want to consider include the Siemens KG36VUL31.

Chart Edit
