There are only 2 of us so this freezer is a good size for us. I shopped around for a long time and I always came back to this model because the reviews were so much better than others. We wanted to spend a little less, but like they say, you get what you pay for, so I am glad we spent a little more to get a better quality freezer. I looked over the specs and manual on the GE site to make an informed decision. We got this on sale from Best Buy online and they delivered it. Like others, I noticed the open space in the back but I think that's for air circulation. I may place a piece of screen over it to keep out the dust. We have this a little under 2 months now and it seems to be functioning good so far. The inside is silver and there are 2 narrow baskets, most freezers only have one. There are no shelves except one on the right side. We have most of our stuff in Foodsaver bags and we group them together and put them in plastic bags labeled with what's inside. We may pick up some plastic bins at the dollar store. We put our frozen turkey on a thick foil sheet on the bottom. I would be very careful with something that heavy, making sure to place it gently. I think the inside can dent if something like that makes an impact. The light that it has is an "on" indicator light. It's a green light on the lower front. Fortunately we have a ceiling light just above the freezer because it doesn't have a light inside. The top closes quickly, so you may want to hold it while it's closing. This freezer requires defrosting according to GE, maybe every 6-12 months depending on the ice build up. I haven't defrosted it yet, but I think I may need to in the late spring-early summer. I would recommend this freezer.
