Bought this after most review sites highly praised it and most reviews (like this one) liked it. No matter where you look you will always find someone who isn't completely satisfied. First off, check your doorway dimensions. Even if you take the main doors off this beast it is still 30.5" deep. Older doorways might be tight to move it through. I was able to take off the freezer door tracks (8 mini-bolts/screws) and it brought it back down to 29.25". The delivery guy wouldn't do it so it sat in my living room until I figured that part out myself. It assembles pretty easily. The directions are pretty straight forward, just follow the book (but you have to follow them backwards as there are no assembly instructions only dis-assembly instructions). You can do it with 1 person but there are a few steps that make it a LOT easier with 2. The doors aren't actually set to level at the top as it was explained to me by the installer that the Left door is built about 1/8-1/4" taller to factor in sag over time since the water/ice maker/dispenser is built into that one. Makes sense but you can adjust it yourself to make them even. The overall appearance of this monster is beautiful. It is a shiny/polished stainless steel front. The side panels state that they are a slate/dark grey but to me they actually look more dark chocolate but it could be the lighting in the room. No magnets will stick on the front due to the high nickel count of this stainless steel but they do stick to the sides. The doors open and close very heavy. Gone are the days of the thin doors. They are actually pretty loud (no whisper action here) when they close but that is mainly due to the left door seal that expands/contracts as the door opens. Be warned: they will wake a sleeping baby or the family dog if you open them during a late night raid of the fridge. The interior lighting is wonderful. It 'warms' up after a second once the door(s) are opened. Not super bright until they all warm up. Most other fridges in this class seem to only have overhead or back lighting which makes a lot of the food shadowed and dark. Not this baby. Theater lighting all the way around provides a clear view of everything inside. The door shevles are a little different. They don't quite fit 'American' food. I wonder if that falls under the European influence. The one flip up door shelf would be perfect for a dozen eggs, if they only came in 10 instead of 12, deep enough but not wide enough for the carton. Some of the others on the Left door are considerably smaller due to the ice maker so they get to catch nic-naks (perfect for mini-wine bottles). You will need to re-adust them a few times until you can find the best configuration for your usage. The interior shelves are very deep. Upgrading from a 18cu. ft. model to this model makes it look like I don't have any food in the fridge. The shelves are adjustable. The right rear top shelf items seemed to be a little colder than the rest of the items in the fridge so be warned. The interior drawers are spacious BUT you have to have both doors open to access them. Kind of a bummer. But they are deep and hold a lot of items are are lit too. The full width Deli drawer is nice for storage of just about anything. All come with separate temp controls too. The Freezer drawer is deep and split into 2 side via a plastic tube. I see forgetting about certain items in the bottom after awhile. The 2 pull-out drawers work perfect for often accessed items (smaller one on the left holds 2 loaves of bread (or extra ice) & the larger right drawer is perfect for ice cream and other frozen treats). The little tip-out shelf on the backside of the freezer drawer is nice for frozen cans of juice. The water/ice cube dispenser is a nice feature even if the ice cubes do come out at weird angles (make sure to keep your container (glass) right up against the dispenser or you will be cleaning up ice cubes off the floor). The autofill works awesome of small containers. I put an empty Gatoraid bottle under it and did the Autofill and it stop about 1/8" from the bottle neck. Perfect. The water does fill kind of slow (personal opinion) but better than splashing all over coming out too forcefully. No matter if you use the Autofill or just manually fill it tells you on the screen how many ounces you have dispensed which is kind of cool. Having the water filter accessible but still hidden in the door itself is a nice option too. It comes with a by-pass plug too incase after you find out how much the filters cost to replace you choose to no longer filter your water. You can upload images to the LCD screen thru the USB port (no mention of it or how to use it in the manual) located in the top left corner of the water/ice dispenser. You can load up to 99 images (depending on the image sizes). Your images have to be in the home directory (no folders or sub-folders) of the device you are pluging in to it. It will automatically copy the images to the mini-hard drive for the screen. It will cycle them as a slideshow in the order that you uploaded them in, no random feature, anytime you use the water/ice dispenser. Some reviewers have 'mentioned' (code for complained) about the noise it makes. The compressers are high efficient so they run more often than some older models. I used a Sound Meter app on my phone and they peaked between 42-48dB. Not that loud but you will hear it. If it is in an open area the sound will travel to the next room. It will take some getting used to but being more efficient comes at a price. It is quiet but not silent. Older models ran louder but turned on/off more often. The newer ones run longer but use a lot less power. But the sound is something to consider with this model. The door handles are quite thick and show fingerprints very easily. The shipping shrinkwrap is kind of tough to remove, especially since I think they put it on before some of the door handle hardware so it leaves little flakes at the joints, tweezer-worthy to remove them. We actually left it on the pull out tray under the water/ice dispenser. It is a cool looking blue and anything to draw attention to it adds to the look of it. The water hookup is pretty easy along with the power plug (if standing in front of the fridge the water hookup is on the left and the power plug on the right). It does roll forward and back pretty easily for a fridge of this weight but not side-to-side as the wheels don't pivot. This beast is a prime example of fashion and function. It can handle anything you put in it and look beautiful in any kitchen. I call it a beast as this was a huge upgrade for our house (18 cu.ft. 1995 model to this 28.6 cu.ft. monster).

We built a house and I was most looking forwad to my new appliances, esecially a fridge with an ice make, as we used 8 trays of ice a week! We bought the GE fridge, dishwasher, and gas range. Love range and dishwasher, NOT the fridge, the ice maker in the door has been malfunctioning on several occassions, had repair man out twice since January. Just had to call for repair yet again. It leaks water so much that tray fills up so when you shut door water splashes out, on my new oak floors! Jams up and we use plenty of ice everyday. I also don't care for the way I have to get storage bin out of door, especially since it jams all the time an I want to get ice out of bin since it won't come down the shoot. Seriously disappointed on such an expensive fridge that this is a problem. If this product is not repaired this time I will be seeking anther fridge. Another problem, the auto fill will only work with glass glasses, plastic cups do not fill appropriately. I don't recommend because no matter how nice other features may be this ice maker problem is unbearable and a HUGE WASTE of time and money.

Great features user friendly
from Fortson Ga
I've had almost a year. I wish it had pellet ice but that's the only thing I would change.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
from Byron, IL
I bought this in March 2014 and had mother board and fresh air fan replaced. Mother board was replaced because auto fill was not working and fan replaced becaused fridge is very loud. Auto fill works great now but, I still have the continous loud humming noise.
What great features--very futuristic!
from Coeur d'Alene, ID, United States
I wanted a great and attractive refrigerator with plenty of adjustable storage space in the upper part and ample freezer storage. I got that and more with this model with the auto and measured water fill feature plus the fun addition of a place to view photos. It's a star in our kitchen.
Quality is great!
from Pensacola, FL, United States
This is our second GE Profile refrigerator in the past 5 years and quality is very good. We also have all GE Profile appliances in our kitchen!
I bought this a year ago and so far it has worked very well for me. I have five kids and so the size was very important and it has been great as far as keeping plenty of food around. I put it at a 4 star because I did have to have one motor replaced after about 11 months as it was starting to make a lot of noise, but they replaced it quickly and with no fuss.
from Denver, Co.
We love this refrigerator. The ice maker and screen in the door are great and look smart. It runs very quietly and even the ice maker is quiet when it drops ice.
from San Diego, CA, United States
I've bought it a week ago, so I cannot speak about durabiity, but in the meantime I love it! It's super quiet, and the best feature it has is the auto fill. It's so confortable to leave the bottle there and get it filled while you do something else!
So Far, Sooo Good
from Alabama, United States
We bought this fridge in September, 2013, to replace another brand that had lasted only 3 years! So we were VERY conscious of product details and reviews. Overall, we have been very pleased with this fridge. It does what it's supposed to do and has several nice features. We especially like the Auto-Fill, which has become part of our kitchen 'routine'--frees us up to do other tasks. We love the drawers in the freezer section and the flexibility of storage in the fridge section is a plus. The in-door, shallow, shelves have become a favorite feature--which was a surprise. I really like display panel which allows for a quick status check. One issue, which we have not addressed with GE, is that the water/ice dispenser 'sticks' so we must manually pull it forward to stop the dispensing of ice. Speaking of ice & water: This is THE weak point. GE needs to redesign the ice maker and the chilled water reservoir. Other reviews mention this issue if you want details. This is not a 'quiet' fridge, but it is within 8' of our family room and it does not interfere with TV viewing or conversation. The stainless steel front is very shiny and tends to 'stand-out' in our kitchen; the finish requires maintenance--but we're okay with this as this fridge feels 'quality built'... We would buy again.
Attractive fridge addresses most of our concerns
from Maryland, United States
I have used this fridge for about 3 months. All of our friends have commented on its styling and CAVERNOUS SPACE. The design allowed us to arrange all of our food items in an organized and efficient way. One of the details that I like the most is the ability to see pretty much everything at a glance regardless of whether we are looking in the fridge or freezer. The external (automated) access to water and ice is very handy. We were initially worried that not being able to put magnets on the front of the fridge would be a problem but the sides allowed for hanging magnets. We were also worried about finger prints and smudges on the front but we discovered that a little water used with microfiber rags were an easy and effective way to keep it looking good. No complaints so far. Plan ahead for getting this beast through the front door of your house -- the delivery team had to remove the fridge doors (and later reassemble) to get it through the front door to our home.
