3 Reasons For

Quite Large Fridge Net Capacity

The FAB30RV1 has a quite large fridge net capacity (231 liters) compared to most of the other similar spec fridge freezers that have been around for a comparable time to the FAB30RV1. Across all the fridges that have been around for a comparable time to the FAB30RV1 the fridge net capacitys range from 130L to 340L, and the average fridge net capacity is 220L.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The average noise level of medium total net capacity fridges that are a comparable age to the FAB30RV1 is 41dB, and the noise levels range from 34dB to 48dB. At only 38 decibels, the Smeg FAB30RV1 has a fairly quiet noise level compared to most of the other fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 38dB noise level fridges currently available including the Gorenje RF60309[plb_401701_price] which has better reviews.

If you would consider a fridge with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Bosch KGE36AW40[plb_798241_price] (38dB).

14 Reasons Against

Smeg Only Has Poor Fridge Freezer Reviews

Smeg is one of the lower rated fridge manufacturers according to average expert and owner review score data that we have collected for all fridge freezers.

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

The smallest freezer net capacity of fridge freezers of a comparable type and age to the FAB30RV1 is 27L, the largest is 120L, and the average freezer net capacity is 83L. At only 64 liters, the FAB30RV1 has a fairly small freezer net capacity compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago.

If you want a larger freezer net capacity then you might want to look at the Siemens KG36NSW31[plb_2601926_price] (66L).

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The FAB30RV1 has one of the shorter storage time during power failures (only 15 hours) amongst medium total net capacity fridges of this age.

If this Smeg fridge freezer storage time during power failure is too short for you then you might also want to look at the Bosch KGN36XI32[plb_2313582_price] (16h), or the LG GBB539SWCWS[plb_2413031_price] (16h).

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

The Smeg FAB30RV1 does not have a super Cool function, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for a comparable time to the FAB30RV1 also do not have a super Cool function.

Does Not Have a Water Filter

We compared all the other fridge freezers which also have a water filter to this fridge and we think the Bosch KGW36XL30S[plb_2362515_price], or the Siemens KG36WXL30S[plb_2373670_price] is also worth considering.
