2 Reasons For

Quite Low Connected Load

Similar spec fridges that were released more than two years ago have connected loads of between 50W and 140W. The connected load of the Smeg FAB5RR of only 50 Watts is one of the lowest amongst comparable spec refrigerators that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Quiet Noise Level

When compared to other refrigerators of a similar age and type to the FAB5RR that we have checked the noise level of, the Smeg FAB5RR's noise level of only 29 decibels is one of the quietest. The quietest noise level of fridges that have been on the market for around the same time as the FAB5RR is 29dB and the loudest is 48dB.

If you would consider a refrigerator with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Siemens KS36VAI41[plb_1649250_price] (38dB and cheaper), or the Smeg FAB10[plb_1652169_price] (37dB and cheaper).

6 Reasons Against

Running Costs Are High

This Freestanding refrigerator has an energy efficiency rating of E, and based on typical energy prices and usage levels we estimate that the 24 year running cost of the FAB5RR is £654, which makes it one of the less economic to run refrigerators that have been around for more than two years.

Not Cheap

We think this Freestanding refrigerator looks expensive compared to other fridges of a comparable age and type. We checked 98 fridges of a comparable age and type and they range in price from £55 to £2,196.

Quite Small Fridge Gross Capacity

The smallest fridge gross capacity of fridges of a similar age and type to the FAB5RR is 39L, the biggest is 670L, and the average fridge gross capacity is 280L. The Smeg FAB5RR has a very small fridge gross capacity (only 42 liters) compared to most of the other Freestanding refrigerators that have been on the market for around the same time as the FAB5RR.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Fridge Net Capacity

At only 40 liters, the Smeg FAB5RR has a very small fridge net capacity compared to most of the other fridges that came out around the same time as the FAB5RR. Across all the fridges of a comparable type and age to the FAB5RR the fridge net capacitys range from 14L to 400L.

If you want a refrigerator with a bigger fridge net capacity then you might also want to look at the Smeg FAB28[plb_2962479_price] (222L), or the Gorenje RB60299OCO[plb_2981242_price] (255L) which is also cheaper.

Only Two Fridge Number of Shelves/basketss

The Smeg FAB5RR is a two fridge number of shelves/baskets refrigerator. Most of the other fridges of this spec and age have between one and eight fridge number of shelves/basketss.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

The Smeg FAB5RR does not have a water dispenser, although this is within the context that most of the other refrigerators of a similar age and type to the FAB5RR also do not have a water dispenser.

There are a number of alternative refrigerators which also have a water dispenser which you might also want to consider including the Siemens KS36WPI30[plb_1663446_price].
