Remodelled kitchen with new cabinets and wanted a counter depth model fridge. Originally looked for models with ice and water on the door but after hearing about maintenance issues with those types I opted for ice below and water inside the fridge. I LOVE the LED lighting, gives it a bright fresh look inside! Like the ample door storage as well. The only way I would suggest this model be improved upon is fingerprint free stainless steel on the outside and two separate meat/dairy doors on the bottom row instead of one large one so both main doors do not have to be opened to access items inside this drawer. Also, fridge is slightly noisier than my old one but nothing to complain about.

It keeps things cold. The layout is reasonable, since this is a counter-depth model it is relatively shallow and we like how easily we can see and access the food in the refrigerator. It just doesn't seem that roomy. Definitely glad we didn't get the version with the in-door ice-maker - that would've used up close to 1/3rd of the space in the fridge. The freezer rolling shelf falls off it's track on a daily basis. It then won't roll and must be unstuck and put back on by hand - my wife still hasn't figured out how to do it so I'm being constantly nagged about the "broken" freezer shelf. On occasion (5 times in the last 3 months?) the freezer door does not close properly and everything in the freezer ends up covered in frost. Haven't figured out what is going on there. When swinging the fridge doors shut, they stop with jarring force - hard enough to dump things off the shelves. I had a glass butter dish fall out of the butter tray and break within the first week of owning. You must purposefully release the door when it is almost shut in order to get it to close more softly. The push button for filtered water is very difficult to depress far enough to get water to dispense. I am the only one in my family that can figure out how to do it without using 2 hands - that leaves no hand to hold the glass! I have figured out that I can leave one door shut, prop my elbow against it and use that lever against in order to put enough force on the button to get it to dispense water. Once the water starts dispensing, the button must be kept depressed with heavy force or else the water flow annoyingly stops and you have to repress the button - usually happens 2-3 times per glass filling. The stow-away shelf is a gimmick that just takes up valuable space from the shelf below it. Would like to see them do away with that "feature" - would even pay for a fixed shelf - will have to look into availability.

replaced a 2 year old Samsung, thus far our refrigerator has been great.
Pleased so far!
from San Francisco
Have had the unit for 3 weeks. Some reviews said noisy - mine is quite quiet. Only complaint is lack of dual controls for deli section. More usable space than I expected from showroom, and since it's a counter depth that's important. Doors hold a LOT. Looks very nice in room. Like having magnetic sides for my travel collection.

Good product with very limited room due to counter depth. Freezer space is good. Inside water prevents all the problems of ice in the door ... However, the inside water dispenser is not ergonomically friendly. Overall feels a little cheap especially for this price
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great! Awesome! wonderful purchase. Beautiful and classy.
from Winter Garden, FL, United States
I read all the the reviews before my purchase. Quite a few people complained about how loud the motor was. To me, it is like any other fridge. They all have motors and they all make noise. I am very pleased with the layout of the space and love that the front has a nice lean professional look. They only thing that I can say bad, is that the inside button for the water dispenser is a little difficult to push but, you get used to it after a while.

Clean unobstructed front panel. The french doors were the reason I bought the refrigerator. I wasn't disappointed. It really is easy to use and quite attractive.
from Skillman NJ
This refrigerator looks great. Plenty of space, especially on the door shelves. BUT, for such a high end unit, it is very noisy. GE sent someone out and I was told it has all the modification in it for the noises. Well, they did not do a good job of that. It sounds like a its ready to take off.
A lithe loud
from Massachusetts, United States
I bought it a month ago and it seems to be in a constant noisy mode. Also it have opened the door to find it off - no lights on. Then they suddenly appear. There was no clearly written booklet to explain how to work the function keys on the door.
Great Performance, Features and Looks

It is great to have refrigerator space in a smaller kitchen and this provides just that, plus it is energy efficient and looks great in my kitchen. It was a good purchase.
