Bought this fridge to replace a 15 year old fridge that was dying.
I was not sure what to think, as some of the reviews said the fridge looked nice, but was loud. I don't know what kind of fridges those reviewers had, but this one was much quieter than the one I had before. Yes, it does occasionally (maybe once every 2 or 3 hours), sound like mice are running around inside the fridge, but is really not very loud at all.
I do love the stainless steel look of the fridge. I was really stuck because I had a certain cut out space, so I was limited in refridgerator purchasing options. Luckily this one looks great, but it is quite the fingerprint magnet.
Overall, great fridge for the money. Yes, it is not silent, but my kitchen is near my living room / home theatre area, and it does not bother me whatsoever.
