4 Reasons For

Quite Large Fridge Net Capacity

The Smeg FAB50X has a fairly large fridge net capacity (362 liters) compared to most of the other large total net capacity fridge freezers that were launched more than two years ago. Across all the large total net capacity fridge freezers that are a comparable age to the FAB50X the fridge net capacitys range from 85L to 2,300L.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 362L net fridge capacity fridge freezers currently available including cheaper fridge freezers such as the FAB50B[pl_1316529_price], or the FAB50P[pl_1316530_price] both from Smeg.

If you want a fridge freezer with a larger fridge net capacity then you might want to look at the Smeg FT41DXE[plb_1790336_price] (373L and cheaper).

Has an Icemaker

The Smeg FAB50X has an icemaker. Most of the other fridge freezers of this age and spec do not have an icemaker.

We compared all the other fridge freezers with an icemaker to this fridge freezer and we think the AEG S76010CMX2[plb_2981224_price], and the Smeg FAB50P[plb_1316530_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

There are a number of alternative fridges which also have an icemaker that you might also want to consider including the Samsung RF56J9040SR[plb_2962364_price].

Quite Large Total Gross Capacity

The total gross capacitys of large total net capacity fridge freezers that were launched around the same time as the FAB50X range from 250L to 660L, and the average total gross capacity is 430L. The Smeg FAB50X has a quite large total gross capacity (484 liters) compared to most of the other fridge freezers that have been available for a comparable time to the FAB50X.

Chart Edit

Very Low Current

With a current of only 1.1 ampere, the Smeg FAB50X has a fairly low current compared to most of the other similar spec fridges that were launched around the same time as the FAB50X. The average current of large total net capacity fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago is 9.5A.

Chart Edit

15 Reasons Against

Smeg Fridges Only Have Poor Reviews

Fridges produced by Smeg generally have poor reviews.

Very Short Storage Time During Power Failure

The Smeg FAB50X has one of the shorter storage time during power failures (only 8 hours) amongst large total net capacity fridge freezers of this age. Across all the fridge freezers of this age and spec the storage time during power failures range from 4h to 44h.

Other 8h storage time during power failure fridge freezers currently available that you might want to look at include cheaper fridges such as the FAB50B[pl_1316529_price], or the FAB50P[pl_1316530_price] both from Smeg.

If you are looking for a longer storage time during power failure then you might want to look at the AEG S76010CMX2[plb_2981224_price] (12h and cheaper), or the Bosch KGN39XI30[plb_1883223_price] (16h and cheaper).

Pricey

We checked 92 large total net capacity fridge freezers that have been available for more than two years and they range in price from £295 to £3,999. We think that this fridge looks expensive compared to other large total net capacity fridge freezers that have been available for more than two years.

Running Costs Are High

Whilst this fridge is rated A+ for energy efficiency, the FAB50X is one of the less economic to run large total net capacity fridge freezers that were released more than two years ago that we have looked at for 24 year running costs. Based on typical usage levels and energy prices, we estimate the 24 year running cost of the FAB50X is £985.

Chart

Does Not Have a Super Cool Function

The Smeg FAB50X does not have a super Cool function, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other fridge freezers of a similar age and type to the FAB50X also do not have a super Cool function.

We compared this fridge freezer to all the other fridge freezers with a super Cool function and we think the Liebherr CBNP 3956[plb_1983039_price] is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

We compared this fridge to all the other fridge freezers with a water dispenser and we think the AEG S76010CMX2[plb_2981224_price] is also worth considering.
