We did a lot of shopping around and comparisons before buying this refrigerator. We had wanted to remodel our kitchen before buying a new fridge unfortunately our old refrigerator was slowly on it's way out after many years of service, this was the biggest refrigerator in the dimensions we had available we could get delivered to our area. The brand quality is very good so we didn't settle for second best.
The delivery crew was ready to take it back because they thought it wouldn't fit in our small kitchen, we measured it to be sure it would fit before we ordered it so knowing it would fit we asked they to try setting it up if couldn't fit we let them take it back for an exchange. They had to take the doors off to get it though our doors but it just fits in the available space.
After having lived with this refrigerator for a year we really like it, the temperature it keeps the fridge and freezer side are much colder than our old refrigerator ever did. We have a confidence in the food stored in the fridge side staying fresh, when we go to defrost something we know if we take it form the freezer and put it on the fridge side it will take a day or two to be defrosted.
The water system has a easy to change filter that does not leak while swapping filters. Seems to do a very good job filtering out impurities, we've dramatically cut back on bottle water consumption because the water is that good.
The two let downs are not really big deals but still can be a bother. First is the ice machine, does a fine job creating ice, its crushing or despising cubes that seems to take awhile. We've had other refrigerators which did theses tasks much more efficiently and in greater quantities. We are not sure if this is common of if we need to call for a repair. Not really big deal, just takes a little longer to get the ice we want.
The other issue is the storage on the freezer side door, tiny little places that really can't fit much of anything useful. Obviously this is because of this size limitation of our kitchen, models with bigger freezer sections and doors may not have this issue. What kind of hurts the usefulness of the door is the door shelves are thickly molded, probably for the bigger freezer doors, but on the smaller door the thickness of the shelves severely limits the useful space.
After a year of ownership those are our only real complaints. We would recommend this refrigerator to our friends.
