Walking through the store and comparing features, shelf layouts, ice bins....I saw Walking through the store and comparing features, shelf layouts, ice bins....I saw this Cafe Series with the Keurig before she did and told my wife to stop her shopping because I knew what she was going to want to buy. She lit up and asked "How can this be?" "This is brilliant!" She then opened the doors and quickly realized that the shelves, bins and ice bin were just like all of the others, or maybe a little nicer. She spent about a week online reading reviews and found mostly great comments about this refrigerator. The three recurring, negative comments were: compressor is a little louder than most refrigerators, the water dispenser and Keurig, drip a little, after dispensing and the Keurig backs water up in the door and leaks. Well, the Keurig backing water into the door seemed to be fixed with an update to the Keurig apparatus and I assumed mine would have the updated version (which seems to be the case and I have not had a problem with it). The water and Keurig do drip a drop after dispensing. No big deal though, the drop of water sits on the tray and evaporates shortly. The drop of coffee evaporates and at some point as I am passing by with a damp paper towel, I wipe up the residue. BTW, the tray rocks....you can pull it out to double it's size and a pot will sit there. The noisy compressor....It is slightly more noisy than my previous refrigerator. If I had to guess, standing in front of it, my old refrigerator ran at 5 decibels and this one runs at 5.2. Barely noticeable and I would much rather have a heavy-duty compressor rather than a weaker one that was slightly-less noisy. The water dispenser will show what volume of water you are dispensing. It is accurate up to 2 cups, but after that, it gets wildly inaccurate (always over fills). I used a measuring cup to verify these findings. The second thing....you can set the amount to fill but you have to hold the pot against the lever for the water to flow. I would like to set the water, push the pot against the lever and let go. No big deal, but I recommend this update to the software. The water filters are about $45 each. This is about twice what I spent on my previous refrigerator. Seeing how the refrigerator has wifi, I would also like it to connect to internet radio and have a descent speaker. Now, this is a luxury request, but, come on man, it has a Keurig!!!

I bought this 2 days ago. Hot water worked perfectly, attached Keurig adapter and got half a cup of coffee. Opened the left door and found out where the other half was, leaking out the bottom. Took the Keurig adapter off, washed it, checked it and noticed all the coffee grounds were in the top. So I cleaned it and blew out the debris. Made a cup of coffee. This morning, all excited to have my first morning coffee with it, I attach the adapter and wait for hot water (which is a timely function, I might add). When ready I turn and press the button the coffee begins to fill my cup, I am so excited. Then 1/4 cup of coffee I notice coffee leaking from the seam, then out the top and then all of the sudden it like explodes out the top and there are grounds and coffee EVERYWHERE. You can imagine my disappointment. Now, as I am somewhat of a Keurig connoisseur, I know the problems Keurig has had with the newer models. Such as the 2.0 will only use specially labeled K-cups, and even with them it is hit and miss. Their own brand, Green Mountain, sometimes gives you half a cup and sometimes it doesn't. So, not only did they change the top label, but somewhere they have changed the cup itself. As, they are also hit and miss in the old Keurig as well. So, as my title says, if you are buying this for the Keurig feature, save your money.

I bought one a year ago an love it best investment

Happy we got this. The kerguig machine saves me counter space! Smudge free stainless and lots of room. Highly recommended
from Tupelo, MS, United States
Very Quiet. Features are easy to work with. The organization and layout seems to work very well for us. Keirug is great for a few users. If you have company it is a little messy and cumbersome. Have had some issues getting the doors just right (lining up). High quality stainless is easy to clean and doesn't show much smudging at all.

We love the French doors and logical configuration of storage compartments.
Love the coffee maker in the door!
from Richmond, TX, United States
Overall happy with the refrigerator but would like more room in left doors. Lost lots of space due to coffee maker so can't really complain too much.
Loud and Runs Constantly
from San Antonio, TX, United States
Not a fan of this model. Seems to always be running, electric consumption probably greater than an earlier model it replaced. Keurig 'cafe' unit has gotten stuck in kcup engaged position requiring unplugging the unit to reset and be able to remove kcup holder.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I'm in love... with a refrigerator!
We've had this refrigerator for about 2 1/2 months now, and I don't think we've ever been so happy with an appliance. The fact that it makes our morning coffee is a wonderful thing, but the fact that the process can be started before I even step foot out of bed is AMAZING! Through the wonders of technology I can have the refrigerator heat up the water for our coffee via a downloadable GE app from our smartphone. I'm so in love! The inside of the fridge it great too! The temperature control drawer with LED lights is kinda cool. You can set the drawer temp for specifically what you store in the drawer, and that is then indicated by the colored LED. A red light shows it's set for meat, a green light is for deli items, and a blue light means it's set for beverages! It has great storage in fridge and freezer as well. I would definitely recommend this refrigerator! (Well technically I already have! :)

Good refrigerator, but awkward interior and ability to move shelves and trays to a different location. Interior could be a lot more user friendly for a Frig this size. Also check the measurements because it is large. We had to remove a door frame to get it inside the house.
Plenty of space

Adjustable shelves make it easy to fit oversize items
