So I'd originally bought a Frigidaire refrigerator, open box, about $300. It was fine, for the most part -- just, a tad too loud. (If you look up Frigidaire fridges, 18.1 cu ft, you can probably find my review). Anyway, I went ahead and pulled the trigger on replacing that with this, as it looked aesthetically more appealing, had good reviews, and had glass shelving -- and am very glad I did.
First thing's first; this is a great price for a fridge, even more so one that's so well-designed. Part of the reason I was thrilled enough to spend some extra money on this instead is that my local DWP (of Los Angeles) offers rebates for EnergyStar certified refrigerators; with this fridge, we got a $75 rebate via Paypal. It was super easy, too; I just emailed my digital receipt to an email address that I found on the website with the rebate info, and voila, one day later, they asked whether I'd prefer a Visa giftcard or Paypal deposit.
I love the blue LED lighting and sleek inner shelving; even though the door ones are plastic, they work great, and none were damaged in my unit. It gets food much colder at middle-settings than the frigidaire did even at max-coldness. The aesthetic is great, I like the symmetrical design of the in-door handles and sleek boxy design. (The stainless steel model is really gorgeous, as well -- saw it in-store when I went to purchase the white model.)
Best part is that this fridge is much, much quieter. There is still, naturally, a buzz or hum when the compressor is running, but it is much less noticeable than the Frigidaire, and also doesn't pump a bunch of extra noise into my bedroom through the wall (which was my issue with that fridge). The exchange process was extremely easy, too; the crew took out the old fridge and installed the new one, quick as can be.
A very satisfying purchase.
