3 Reasons For

Running Costs Are Low

The energy efficiency classification of this fridge freezer is A++, and the FAB30RVE1 is one of the cheaper to run medium total net capacity fridges that were launched more than two years ago that we have analysed for running costs. Based on average energy prices, we estimate the FAB30RVE1 will cost £499 over 24 years to run.

Quite Quiet Noise Level

The Smeg FAB30RVE1 has a fairly quiet noise level (only 38 decibels) compared to most of the other fridges of this age and spec. The noise levels of fridge freezers of this age and spec range from 34dB to 48dB, and the average noise level is 41dB.

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

Alternative fridges with a louder noise level that you might want to look at include the Bosch KGE36AW40 (£520.00) (38dB).

13 Reasons Against

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

Across all the fridges of a comparable spec and age to the FAB30RVE1 the freezer net capacitys range from 27L to 120L, and the average freezer net capacity is 83L. At only 64 liters, the FAB30RVE1 has a fairly small freezer net capacity compared to most of the other fridges of a comparable type and age to the FAB30RVE1.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The average storage time during power failure of medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago is 20h, and the storage time during power failures range from 4.5h to 46h. With a storage time during power failure of only 15 hours, the FAB30RVE1 has a fairly short storage time during power failure compared to most of the other fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago.

If you would prefer a longer storage time during power failure then you might want to consider the LG GBB539SWCWS (£599.00) (16h).

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Like most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the FAB30RVE1, the Smeg FAB30RVE1 does not have a super Cool function.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Air Filter

Like most of the other comparable spec fridge freezers that have been on the market for a similar time to the FAB30RVE1, the FAB30RVE1 does not have an air filter.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Filter

The FAB30RVE1 does not have a water filter. Most of the other similar spec fridges that were released around the same time as the FAB30RVE1 also do not have a water filter.

We compared all the other fridge freezers which also have a water filter to this fridge freezer and we think the Bosch KGW36XL30S (£769.28), or the Siemens KG36WXL30S (£732.44) is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Most comparable spec fridges that have been available for a similar time to the FAB30RVE1 do not have a water dispenser. The FAB30RVE1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water dispenser.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Icemaker

Like most of the other similar spec fridge freezers that have been on the market for around the same time as the FAB30RVE1, the Smeg FAB30RVE1 does not have an icemaker.

Chart Edit

Does Not Feature Ice Crushing

The Smeg FAB30RVE1 does not feature ice crushing, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other fridges of a comparable age and spec to the FAB30RVE1 also do not feature ice crushing.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an AntiBacteria Function

Most comparable spec fridge freezers that have been around for more than two years do not have an AntiBacteria function. The Smeg FAB30RVE1 is no exception to this as it too does not have an AntiBacteria function.

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

Does Not Have a Humidifier Function

Most fridge freezers that were released around the same time as the FAB30RVE1 do not have a humidifier function. The FAB30RVE1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a humidifier function.

We think you might also be interested in alternative fridges which also have a humidifier function including the Siemens KG36VUL31.

Quite Small Freezing Capacity

Fridges of a similar age and type to the FAB30RVE1 have freezing capacitys of between 2kg/24h and 17kg/24h, and the average freezing capacity is 8.6kg/24h. With a freezing capacity of only 3 kilograms per 24 hours, the Smeg FAB30RVE1 has one of the smallest freezing capacitys amongst medium total net capacity fridges of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Total Gross Capacity

The Smeg FAB30RVE1 has a fairly small total gross capacity (only 296 liters) compared to most of the other fridges of a similar type and age to the FAB30RVE1. The smallest total gross capacity of medium total net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago is 280L, the largest is 640L, and the average total gross capacity is 330L.

Chart Edit

Only Three Fridge Number of Shelves/basketss

Most medium total net capacity fridges that came out around the same time as the FAB30RVE1 have between 2 and 10 fridge number of shelves/basketss, including the FAB30RVE1 which has three fridge number of shelves/basketss.

2 Other reasons to consider the Smeg FAB30RVE1

Average Fridge Net Capacity

The FAB30RVE1 has a fairly standard fridge net capacity (229 liters) compared to most of the other fridges of a similar type and age to the FAB30RVE1.

We compared all the other 229L net fridge capacity fridges to this fridge and we think because of it's better review score, the Gorenje RF60309 is also worth considering.
