5 Reasons For

Quite Low Connected Load

With a connected load of only 70 Watts, the Smeg FAB5 has a fairly low connected load compared to most of the other fridges of a similar spec and age to the FAB5. Across all the similar spec fridges that were released around the same time as the FAB5 the connected loads range from 50W to 200W, and the average connected load is 86W.

Very Short

Refrigerators of this spec and age have heights of between 460mm and 2,100mm, and the average height is 1,300mm. At only 560 millimeters, the Smeg FAB5 is fairly short compared to most of the other fridges of a comparable age and spec to the FAB5.

Other refrigerators with a taller height that you might want to look at include the Smeg FAB10 (960mm and cheaper), the Liebherr TP 1760 (850mm and cheaper), or the Exquisit BC 1-10 (840mm and cheaper).

Narrow

The widths of refrigerators of a comparable type and age to the FAB5 range from 380mm to 1,300mm, and the average width is 570mm. When compared to other Freestanding refrigerators that are a comparable age to the FAB5, the Smeg FAB5's width of only 400 millimeters is one of the narrowest.

If you would consider a refrigerator with a wider width then you might want to look at the AEG S32500KSS1 (550mm and cheaper), the Smeg FAB10 (543mm and cheaper), or the Exquisit BC 1-10 (500mm and cheaper).

Quite Quiet Noise Level

At only 29 decibels, the Smeg FAB5 has a very quiet noise level compared to most of the other Freestanding refrigerators that have been available for more than two years. The average noise level of Freestanding refrigerators that were released more than two years ago is 39dB.

If you would consider a refrigerator with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the Gorenje R6182 (38dB), the AEG S32500KSS1 (38dB), or the Smeg FAB10 (37dB) which is also cheaper.

Shallow

Across all the Freestanding refrigerators that came out around the same time as the FAB5 the depths range from 320mm to 800mm, and the average depth is 600mm. At only 400 millimeters, the Smeg FAB5 is very shallow compared to most of the other comparable spec refrigerators that have been around for a similar time to the FAB5.

Fridges with a deeper depth that might also be worth considering include the BC 1-10 (560mm), or the KS 325-1 (550mm) both from Exquisit or the AEG S32500KSS1 (612mm) which is also cheaper.

4 Reasons Against

Quite Small Gross Capacity

Across all the fridges of a comparable age and spec to the FAB5 the gross capacities range from 39L to 670L. The gross capacity of the Smeg FAB5 of only 42 liters is one of the smallest amongst refrigerators of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Net Capacity

Fridges of a similar type and age to the FAB5 have net capacities of between 14L and 400L. At only 40 liters, the Smeg FAB5 has a fairly small net capacity compared to most of the other Freestanding refrigerators that have been on the market for around the same time as the FAB5.

If you want a fridge with a bigger net capacity then you might want to look at the Zanussi ZBA15041SA (146L and cheaper), or the Liebherr TPesf 1710 (147L and cheaper).

Only Two Shelves/basketss

The Smeg FAB5 is a two shelves/baskets refrigerator. Most of the other fridges of this type and age have between one and eight shelves/basketss.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Water Dispenser

Most fridges of a comparable age and type to the FAB5 do not have a water dispenser. The Smeg FAB5 is no exception to this as it too does not have a water dispenser.

Alternative refrigerators which also have a water dispenser that you might also want to look at include the Beko LP 1671 DB which is also cheaper.
