      Love it! This refrigerator is quiet and maintains almost perfect temperature. I like the french door design with the freezer on the bottom. With the different drawer slides and storage drawer, the freezer is very easy to navigate. The interior lighting is so crisp and bright. I also love the exterior lighting for the water dispensing area. One of the best features is that the water dispenser allows for any size glass or pitcher. I also like that the overflow water holder is easy to clean. It is obvious that a lot of thought went into the design of this refrigerator.

      We were so excited to purchase the LFX 28979ST after reading reviews on this and another website. However after 8 months, it stopped working. We had to throw out all of our food. The technician told us the refrigerator had freon constriction. New parts were ordered including a compressor, but when they were installed, the refrigerator still didn't work. Fortunately this happened during the warranty period. So now we have are in the process of purchasing another refrigerator. We still love the LG, but are wary of buying one from the same company.

          I have owned this wonderful machine since Sept. 21, 2013....I truly love the quality and the performance. It has been a wonderful addition to my home. The dual ice maker is an important feature. I live on the lake and entertain family and friends often, so, ice is a necessity in my home. The space, efficiency & ice of this product has made entertaining fun again. Thank you LG for thinking of me! MAI

                          Have had frig about a month. So far I love it! Can't say a bad word about it. Lots of room inside, large ice and water dispenser, and plenty of room in freezer below.

                              I wanted a new fridge for our remodeled kitchen. This one had all the bells and whistles. I like it BUT the fridge compartment is small because of the large freezer drawer. I have a freezer so the large freezer in the unit was unnecessary. No matter as I own another fridge for over flow. The other negative is the size of the icemaker, it eats up half of the fridge door space on one side. Also had to remove one shelf inside fridge to make room for tall bottles. Good unit, attractive design and it cranks out ice very well.

                              I purchased this model a month ago and immediately starting coming across some issues like temperature fluctuations in the fridge, ice taking too long to make, having to adjust temperature outside of recommended settings. I had to place to service calls with in a month to address these concerns and a new problem that dealt with nasty tasting water. We stopped using that water dispenser and ice maker and at that point decided to return the refrigerator for another brand. Its a shame because we were in the market for a range/oven combination and were looking at an LG to maintain same brand through out the kitchen.

                                  Outstanding fridge extremely quiet, very spacious compared to the side by side or the 25cu ft size, I do my grocery shopping and put it in the fridge, but it stays half empty due to its good size. I love the small size ice maker at the door, and the larger one in the freezer that is the smartest idea ever since not much space is wasted in the upper section. I like the outside controls, the option of crushed or cube ice. Excellent temperature control in all locations. Very stylish. I like the ice plus option in case you need ice faster than normal. If you wait for the big sale, you will get the best value for your money with this fridge. My wife and I love it.
