Purchased this refrigerator after looking at a lot of manufacturer models. I wanted the automatic ice maker with water dispenser and this one is very easy to use. The LED lights are so bright which helps to find items. My only complaint is about the Glide N Serve drawer. When we want an item stored in it, we must open both doors. The 28 cubic fridge/freezer has a lot of room so we are very happy with this model.

Good refrigerator while it last!

Almost had it for 3 years and already failed on us. Initially it was misdiagnosed as the compressor, but apparently it was the mother board that was the problem diagnosed by another technician. Even though we spent money on two technicians who gave 2 different diagnoses, we decided to just purchase another refrigerator instead of trying to resolve the problem(s). We didn't realize the first technician wasn't a certified LG technician who is not able to order the parts if it's under warranty. Secondly, It was also difficult to find a certified LG technician within our city.

          Had this product for almost two weeks. But there are some improvements that LG can do: - Add an egg and butter tray. - Put more lights on the doors. - Have a thermostat setting next to the 'Glide & Serve Drawer'. - Add a 'bar' inside top across the bottom freezer door--can put canned juices, i.e., frozen lemonade and orange juice. - Ability to adjust shelves from the very FIRST slot.

          Comments about LG 28 Cu Ft White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

          We had plenty of time for researching for a replacement since our 15 year old was still working. Our choice was easy after reviewing comparing the features and specifications between the brands. We selected this LG product because of its three door functionality, drawers, lightning and the unique linear compressor. After almost two month of use, we are very satisfied, the uni is extremely quiet, the separate water and ice dispensers are easy and practical to use. We made the right choice.

                  My new LG is so nice. It has a lot of space both in the fridge and in the freezer. The lights are so bright inside that it makes everything so easy to see. The ice maker and compressor are both very quiet. The shelves adjust easily so you can move them to accomodate large or small items. It is a very nice refrigerator, and I highly recommend it.

                      We really like this refrigerator. The LED lights make it very bright inside, there's a beep to let you know the door is left open, and it makes enough ice for us. If you were having a big party it's not enough, but if you're doing that, you'd either buy the ice or have a dedicated ice machine. Veggies and fruits are kept fresh, opposed to our old one where they were either frozen or they spoiled.

                              This refrigerator is a huge step up from the last one we had. We shopped for quite a while and checked out a lot of refrigerators. In the end we chose this one for a few reasons. First of all we love the french door style. Alot of the other ones lose a lot of door space to the ice and water dispenser. This one has 3 shelves behind the dispenser. Two that you can fit a row of average sized bottles on . Also we liked the led lights on the inside better then other brands. Overall This one just felt and looked to be higher quality then all the other ones we looked at. We have had it for about a year now and no issues so far.

                                  This is the second lg French door fridge I have owned. LG seems to have worked out some of the kinks from my first one. The ice cube maker no longer hands up with cubes. Many mornings I woke up with water on the floor from ice cubes melting that were caught in the shute. This one makes plenty of ice easy to use settings plenty of shelf space. Still do not care for the folding shelf it seems pointless. Wish the for storage in left side was just 1 inch deeper to hold bigger jars. 5 months no issues. Thanks LG for pushing for high quality good looking usable appliances

                                  We bought this refrigerator because it was recommended by Consumer Reports. It is a stylish refrigerator and is very roomy but the motor runs pretty much constantly. The hum can be annoying at times. In addition the ice maker and water dispenser are also noisier than I thought they would be. The price difference we had to pay for black vs stainless was also disconcerting...about $600 more.
