If you are not bothered about having a louder noise level then you might also want to consider the Zanussi ZBA32050SA (£300.00) (34dB), the Smeg S7323LFEP (£599.00) (34dB), or the Liebherr EK 1610 (34dB).

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

The Smeg S3L172FP does not have a water dispenser, although this is within the context that most of the other refrigerators of a comparable type and age to the S3L172FP also do not have a water dispenser.

Alternative refrigerators which also have a water dispenser that you might want to look at include the HS1622 (£259.00), the HUL1622 (£259.00), or the HS2322L (£419.99) all from Hotpoint.
