I bought this back in July and have used it for a few months. It is a great basic fridge with plenty of storage. I have yet to figure out how to adjust the shelves, but I know they are adjustable. I opted to not have an ice maker put in but I do know it is compatible with an ice maker add on. One day I might do that. I am fine with just making my own ice for now. Whenever you buy it, make sure whatever way the door swings, it opens a little past 90 degrees otherwise the drawer closest to the door may not open all the way. Minor detail that isn't mentioned in the specs when buying. I love the fact that I have the side storage that can fit a full gallon of milk and some standing bottles of wine. The inside is also easy to clean and wipe down if anything spills thanks to the shelving (versus the typical wire racks). I read on some other sites that people were complaining about noise...I haven't had the luxury of experiencing a ton of fridges and this one doesn't annoy me with sound. I have an extremely sensitive ear with noise and I have never noticed it enough to complain or go as far as return it. Overall this product is really great for the price. GE is a trusted brand in home appliances which makes decisions easier for me when buying. My old dishwasher is about 15 years old and still running like new, it is GE as well. Hoping to get many many years out of this fridge.

FINISH: The finish on this appliance is beautiful. It will look great with a lot of different color schemes & doesn't show fingerprints. The handle *does* show fingerprints but it's small and easy to wipe! STORAGE: I was worried about this appliance not having enough room since our last refrigerator had larger square footage. No problem there. The interior design is great, leaving room for plenty of food. One nice thing: if you forget and leave the butter door open (which I always do), you can still close the refrigerator door. We didn't get the ice maker. The ice cube holder is quite small, only holding 1 1/2 ice cube trays of ice. LIGHTING: The refrigerator is very well lit. The freezer has no interior light. I like this because I don't wake up at night when I grab something! THE MAJOR PROBLEM: There is only one temperature dial for both the refrigerator and the freezer. The unit we purchased had a faulty mechanism in the dial (the compressor, I think?). When it arrived, our choice was: own a freezer/freezer or a refrigerator/refrigerator. REPAIR MEN: GE's repairmen were speedy, nice, and helpful - fixing the problem - but only so far. We are now able to make ice in the freezer without freezing the vegetables, milk, etc. in the refrigerator. But even on the highest setting ice cream never freezes solid & the blue ice pads I rely on for sports injuries won't freeze at all. They remain in the gel form. The nice GE repairmen told me that if you want more control over temperature, you need to buy a more expensive unit that has separate dials for the refrigerator and freezer. Even when these one-dial units are functioning perfectly, there will be an area in the top-back of the refrigerator where things will freeze. One small area like that would be no problem for us, *if* the freezer truly froze. But it doesn't. OVERALL RECOMMENDATION: We've chosen to stick with this unit because of the price and the hassle of replacing it. If we had it to do all over again, we would get the larger version with two dials..

I bought this refrigerator 6 weeks ago, and I have no regrets. The refrigerator was performing very well within 6 to 8 hours. I have to say that it is not as quiet as I would like for it to be, but it is not inconveniently loud either. Considering how well the refrigerator performs, I can put up with a little noise. In addition to the very good performance, it also looks nice. I am a happy customer.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Just what we wanted
from Louisville, KY, United States
Bought this unit to replace a larger refrigerator that died. Runs quiet and cold. Very well pleased with our purchase. I definitely recommend to anyone wishing to downsize from an oversize unit.
Too much noise
It good quality inside and out. Won;t work inside the house. But will work in a garage. The unit makes noise all day. Keeps the family up at night.
Perfect for my needs.

I really like GE products because they work well and long. This fridge also looks sleek and is just the right size for my kitchen. It holds a lot and the temperature settings are an additional bonus for longer term storage.
Great price,good quality item. I love the black textured finish.
AVERAGE, NEEDS TEMP DISPLAY. TOP AND BOTTOM.
from NORTHERN VIRGINIA
NOISEY FAN BLADE. ONE TEMPERATURE CONTROL FOR FRIDGE AND FREEZER. RESULT FREEZER TOO COLD REFRIDGERATOR TOO WARM UNLESS FREEZER AT LOWEST TEMP. FINGER PRINTS ALWAYS ON CHROME AND HARD TO REMOVE. PLASTIC FILM TOOK HOURS TO REMOVE AND I LEFT FILM ON BOTTOM OF REFRIDGERATOR DOOR BECAUSE IT WAS TOO HARD TO GET AT, WITHOUT SOME ONE TILTTING THE UNIT FOR ME WHILE I DID IT. I BOUGHT THREE GE APPLIENCES FRIDGE, STOVE, AND DISHWASHER. I FIGURED HEY BUY AMERICAN ITS GOOD FOR THE COUNTRY. OH WELL. I RECEIVE THE STOVE AND DISHWASHER NEXT MONTH. ONE THING I DID LIKE ABOUT THE FRIDGE IS THE LAYOUT INSIDE LOOKED ROOMY.
Perfect Apartment Refrigerator!

I love my new GEGTE18GTHGRWW refrigerator. It's energy efficient, very spacious and (my favorite part), quiet! Highly recommended for apartments/condos based on its sleek look.
We love it!

Perfect Garage Frig/Frezer
from Denver, NC, United States
When our 20 yr old garage frig died, need a replacement to keep wine and beer cold. Wanted an energy efficient model . On researching could not find a better choice than this GE. Liked it was made in Kentucky. Not a noisy one for the location.
