I needed a fridge to fit into my smaller kitchen cabinet opening. Also knew I wanted the stainless steel look without the hassle of fingerprints. Lastly I knew I wanted an ice/water dispenser. Those three qualifications narrowed the field down considerably. It was between the GE and Whirlpool. I read all on-line reviews and called my appliance repair man. Decided on the GE. I've now owned the fridge for a month. There were alot of comments on-line regarding how noisy it was, but I'm not experiencing that. Yes you can hear when the ice is made, but I did with my other fridge too, and it doesn't bother me. I love the cleansteel look. So glad I chose that. My fridge does not stand next to any other appliance so you can't really tell its not stainless steel, and I don't have to worry about the dirt/fingerprints,etc. Overall, I'm very pleased. Yes its smaller than what I'd have preferred, but our cabinet space limited that for us. The freezer space is particularly small, we have a spare freezer so not a problem for us, but could be for someone who doesn't. Replacement of the water filter is easy to do, although I think the cost is rather pricey at $45 each. Also, we did experience one minor issue initially. Do not install the filter prior to getting the air out of the water line, otherwise it gets clogged and both your water and ice dispenser will not work well. We learned that from calling GE, who was very helpful and sent us a replacement filter.

I purchased this refrigerator in April of 2012. The clean steel look is great, effortless to keep clean and holds magnets. My old Hotpoint, which I had for 24 years, had the same outer dimensions but was far roomier inside. This GE has shelves that are 17" wide and 16.5" deep with raised plastic 1" trim on each side, 2" wide front plastic trim and 1.5" trim in the back. This takes up valuable space. If an item sits at all on the trim in the front, it slides out of the unit when the door is opened. Items resting on the side trim tend to topple when items next to it are moved. The top shelf also loses additional space that is taken up by a large light bulb enclosure and a water filter. The two plastic bins at the bottom are amazingly tiny. This refrigerator is too small for a family. Next time I will know to measure the inside carefully! Also, although the digital temps read correctly, the interior and the contents always seems to be moist. I am not pleased with this model. I was told it may last about ten years.

GE SIDE BY SIDE REFRIGERATOR
from Peoria, IL, United States
WE LIKE THE BRUSHED FINISH, THE SIZE OF THE FRIDGE THAT CAN HOLD A 9X13" DISH, THE WATER/ICE IN THE DOOR, THE FILTER FOR THE WATER AND THE SIZE.

Good features, quiet
from Chicago, IL, United States
Have only had this model for 2 weeks but so far I'm very happy with it. If it continues operating the way it is so far I will be super satisfied with my GE purchase.
Sleek looking and spacious for a smaller model!

Quiet, Efficient, and Stylish
from Cartwright, ND
After reviewing several brands and models, I was able to narrow my choice down to this one for a number of reasons. First of all, it was basically the same dimensions as my 17-year-old GE side by side, which fit nicely under my 1952-vintage kitchen cabinetry. I was also impressed by the look of this model, as well as the through-the-door ice and water dispenser. The dispenser does what it should, and I've not experienced any problems whatsoever with the way in which it functions. The temperature display on the door panel, a significant factor in my model choice, measures closely enough (+/- 3 degrees) to my refrigerator/freezer thermometers to put my mind to rest that proper temperatures are being maintained consistently. Perhaps the biggest factor in my choice is how QUIET this baby is! The old one sounded like a jetliner on takeoff by comparison, and I've actually had to double-check from time to time to tell whether the new one's even running! According to the Energy Guide, this model is projected to use only about half the energy the old one did per year, which will save a considerable amount of money. I'd recommend this GE to anybody needing an efficient, good-looking replacement for whatever they're currently using!
