Released Over Five Years Ago

It was April 2012 when this large fridge net capacity fridge freezer was released.


Energy

Running Costs Are Very High

Whilst this Smeg fridge is rated A+ for energy efficiency, based on typical energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the FAB50XS will cost £985 over 24 years to run, which makes it one of the most expensive to run fridges of this age and spec.


Performance

Fairly Large Total Net Capacity

The total net capacities of large fridge net capacity fridges that came out more than two years ago range from 240L to 620L. At 469 liters, the FAB50XS has a quite large total net capacity compared to most of the other fridges of a similar spec and age to this fridge.

If this fridge freezer total net capacity is not large enough for you then you might want to consider the Bosch KDN64VL20N (£633) (492L).

Quite Short Storage Time During Power Failure

When compared to other large fridge net capacity fridges that are a similar age to this fridge freezer that we have checked the storage time during power failure of, the FAB50XS's storage time during power failure of only 8 hours is one of the shortest. Across all the large fridge net capacity fridges that were released more than two years ago the storage time during power failures range from 4h to 44h, and the average storage time during power failure is 21h.

Fridges with a longer storage time during power failure that might be worth considering include the Hotpoint-Ariston ENTMH 192A1 FW (9h).
