2 Reasons For

Quite Quiet Noise Level

With a noise level of only 38 decibels, the Smeg FAB30RX1 has a quite quiet noise level compared to most of the other similar spec fridges that have been on the market for more than two years. The average noise level of medium total net capacity fridges that are a comparable age to the FAB30RX1 is 41dB, and the noise levels range from 34dB to 48dB.

We compared all the other 38dB noise level fridges to this fridge and we think because of it's better review score, the Gorenje RF60309 is also worth considering.

Four Fridge Number of Shelves/basketss

The FAB30RX1 is a four fridge number of shelves/baskets fridge. Most of the other similar spec fridges that were released more than two years ago have between 2 and 10 fridge number of shelves/basketss.

14 Reasons Against

Quite Small Freezer Net Capacity

With a freezer net capacity of only 64 liters, the FAB30RX1 has one of the smaller freezer net capacitys amongst medium total net capacity fridges of this age. The smallest freezer net capacity of medium total net capacity fridges that came out around the same time as the FAB30RX1 is 27L, the largest is 120L, and the average freezer net capacity is 83L.

Chart Edit

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The FAB30RX1 has a quite short storage time during power failure (only 15 hours) compared to most of the other medium total net capacity fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the FAB30RX1. Across all the similar spec fridge freezers that have been available for a comparable time to the FAB30RX1 the storage time during power failures range from 4.5h to 46h.

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

Only One Freezer Number of Shelves/baskets

The Smeg FAB30RX1 is a one freezer number of shelves/baskets fridge. Most of the other fridges of a similar spec and age to the FAB30RX1 have between one and four freezer number of shelves/basketss.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

Chart Edit

Most medium total net capacity fridges that have been available for more than two years do not have a water filter. The FAB30RX1 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water filter.

There are a number of other fridge freezers which also have a water filter which you might want to look at including the Bosch KGW36XL30S (£561.85), or the Siemens KG36WXL30S (£732.44).
