This is an excellent fridge. We based our decision solely on the LG product name and we were not disappointed. This fridge is HUGE! We replaced an 11-year old GE and I can't believe how much room I have. Yes, the ice maker only makes a few cubes at a time, but after one day, the ice maker was full, so I see this as a non-issue completely. Also, that's why they built in the Ice Plus feature which makes ice super fast. Just remember to turn it off - it's a nice feature! Our unit starting making ice after only about 4 hours. The freezer is super cold and again, has a ton of room. We have the temperature set to the third line on each side and it is at a perfect temp. The operation of the whole unit is very quiet. The design and styling are very sleek. I am not finding the stainless all that hard to clean. Here's a little trick - use microfiber cleaning cloths and a little glass cleaner and you won't get streaks! The only little complaint I have, although it isn't a major deal is that the light from the light bulb in the fridge side doesn't reach all the way towards the bottom, so it is a little bit dim at the bottom. But again, it really is not a huge deal. We looked at the french door fridges too and I was not impressed with them to warrant the additional almost $1000 in price (the bottom freezer bins looked like a place to dump stuff and I could see it getting very disorganized over time). I like the tidiness of freezer shelves in a side-by-side model. The outside controls on this fridge are very nice and easy to use. The handles are made out of the titanium, so they do not show fingerprints at all and are easy to clean. All around this is a terrific fridge for a great price and I would highly recommend it to anyone!

We have had this refrigerator for about five months. It looks great and offered what I considered good features for the money. There are, however, four major design flaws you need to be aware of: 1) Ice maker is absolute junk and suffers from a fatal design flaw. Basically, water fills a plastic tray and then "twists" itself to drop the ice. This causes the ice tray to contort over time, at which point water will start spilling all over the inside of your freezer. We had a tech come out and replace the ice maker and it still did the exact same thing. He said it was a major design flaw that many people experience. 2) As many others have noted, the "ICE TYPE" design is totally confusing to any guests you have over. It's not at all intuitive when you walk up to the fridge that you need to press "ICE TYPE" if you simply want to get a glass of water. Seriously? Who thought that was a good idea. 3) Even on the "cube" setting, small bits of ice will spray out of the ice cute and all over your floor, every single time you press the level for ice. This is another design flaw and just read the reviews to see how many other people experience the same thing. 4) As others have mentioned, the internal LED lighting is energy efficient, but makes for VERY dim lighting. This is even worse if you plan to use the top shelf of the refrigerator. In sum, we REALLY wanted to like this fridge, but we simply cannot recommend it based on these four major design flaws. AVOID this refrigerator if these things would bother you as they do us. We really regret our purchase.

Love The LED lights, ice maker is problematic
from Austin, TX, United States
Comments about LG 27 Cu. Ft Stainless Steel Side-By-Side Refrigerator:
Bought this when I bought new house, liked the LED lites, and layout. Outside is easy for all to use and features inside are great. Ice maker dispensing does not work well, it did for the first year then had to replace the ice tray assembly and the auger gets stuck and now pops the whole bucket out of the assembly. The water dispenser also sprays crooked.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

LG Side by Side Refrigerator Freezer
from Prescott Valley, AZ, United States
I bought this a year ago, but wasn't living full time in our retirement home. We love LG and their products mainly because of the exceptional customer service. This product would have gotten 5 stars, but we don't like the fact that the water/ice dispenser doesn't light up well. Visitors consistently push on the area that one would think would dispense the item, but the actual button is below the picture area, which is confusing. It has plenty of room and otherwise as I said would have 5 stars from us.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
The features are great and good storage
from Las Vegas, NV, USA
The ice and water dispenser is an excellent feature where the drinking water is not that great
I am very pleased with my new LG Refrigerator. I especially love the 'snack drawer' and LED Lightening. A great investment!
from Edmonds, WA
I have had this for about 3 months now. I returned a GE unit that was way too noisy. The LG unit is much quieter than the GE. They both make the same kinds of compressor noise but the LG is about 40% quieter. The LED lighting is nice but could be brighter. The freezer only has 1 light (I think) but could use 2. The fridge size has 4 lights but could use 6. The water is nice and cool. Not ice cold and not warm. I have heard of people having trouble with the icemaker but mine works great. I do not use it heavily though. a digital temp display would be nice but it works good as is.
this is he first LG fridge I've owned. It is a really well built fridge for the price. Lots of room and easy to use. It is definitely worth looking at and comparing with the other top brands. I would buy one again.
from Johnson County, TX, USA
Had 2 refrigerators before this LG and I am very happy with it, roomy always has ice, door has deep shelves for storage ---like the black exterior & it's very quiet
So far so good
from Greenville, NC, USA
Keeps things very cold at the default settings, good internal room, wish the drawers were easier to use. Was surprised when a magnet wouldn't stick to the front and it scratched when trying to wipe the tape residue off.
LG side by side

from Quitman, GA 31643, USA
