    Warning: not filter that is shown in picture.

    Frigidaire has changed this filter. I've had my refrigerator for several years and have always used the clear plastic version of this filter with success. To my dismay they had to change the design and totally encased the filter in a solid plastic so you cannot see the sediment that is filtered. Most importantly, they have changed the outside part that connects to the filter housing. It does not stay put and I have had to use tape to hold it in place. Yes, I have tape holding my water filter in place! I am very disappointed and have been looking for the older version of this filter with no luck. If you are looking for the one pictured here do not buy it from Best Buy. They are selling you the new version with the solid white casing which is defective or at least does not fit all Puresource2 Frigidaires. It is not Best Buy's fault but Frigidaire needs to fix this ASAP. Do a search and you will find numerous accounts confirming this issue.

    I love the way this water filter makes the water taste and I have loved using it and having it in my Frigidaire refrigerator. The problem is that as of a couple of years ago, they remodeled this filter and now there is a problem with the filter leaking water. I am now on my 2nd water filter that is leaking water into my fridge. It started off slowly and has now gotten worse with the latest water filter. I have to have a container to catch the water when the filter is used (ie water is dispensed). I thought it was my refrigerator and was about to have a technician come fix it when I found online that I am not the only person with this problem. While I love the water it gives, I can't afford to keep changing filters. The water filters are expensive enough as it is.

    My refrigerator was due it's annual filter replacement. I PREFER original equipment, and I know Best Buy has me covered. And, as expected, they had my filter, in stock, and available for sale. To add praise to opportunity, I was able to use my Best Buy reward points to bring my costs down, a win win win win for all, my refrigerator, my family,my pocket, and Best Buy. Really, why go anywhere else!!!!

    PureSource 2 replacement filter does what it says - replacement for your PureSource 2 refrigerator water filter. It lasts for a long time, makes excellent filtered water and ice in your fridge. I don't like the amount of time/water required to initiate the filter (running your water filter for 5min continuously with sputtering of air is not particularly fun), and for the first day or so, there is definitely a tinge of carbon flavor to the water. But after that, it is perfect

    I really like the way that these replacement filters easily eject with the push of a button and install by quickly sliding and securely snapping in to place. They are much more convenient than twist-in style filters that sit there leaking while you attempt to wrestle them off. The water quality is also very good tasting and remains that way for a very long time. I notice no change in taste during their life, even long-after the recommended replacement intervals.

    We already have excellent water coming into our house in our community. (Our water source has received awards for taste and quality twice in three years.) When we use water dispenser filtered using the Frigidaire - PureSource2™ Replacement Water Filter in our Frigidaire refrigerator, it makes it world class. Frankly, we seldom buy bottled water as a result saving us tons of money. We couldn't be happier.

    I have the Frigidaire refrigerator that takes this filter. My water is pretty hard with minerals and such and this does a good job of filtering those out. I drink a lot of water and use the ice maker, so this does well. Push of a button and the old one comes out, the new one goes in. Run a big glass of water through it and the charcoal flavor is gone. Wish it wasn't quite so expensive though.

    I need to replace my refrigerator filter quite often but since I switched to this particular Frigidaire filter, I notice it is not as often. I used to but the generic brand which never lasted more than 3 month s tops. Since using this I get at least a couple more months. It is true when they say you get what you pay for...

    I've purchased this filter a few times from best buy. I knew what I needed and I did an instore pick up on a Sunday. The item was not ready when I got there, but since the store wasn't busy, I recieved my item within 10 minutes. I'm very pleased with the filter and it works as it is supposed to for my refridgerator.

    I have used this type of filter for several years since this is what my refrigerator requires. It's not cheap but lasts a long time. I have well water that is good and am not home a lot to use the water from the fridge so the filter lasts me about a year before the light indicates that it is time to change the filter. It filters both the water and ice so both tase great.

    Had to purchase a replacement filter for my fridge/ice maker. The employee at my local bestbuy knew exactly what I needed and showed it to me right away. Installation was a simple as snapping it in place. These filters last a long time too, my lat one lasted well over 2 years and for making sure the water is filtered is well worth replacing these

    It doesn't get much simpler than this. Pop the old one out, pop the new one in, run a couple of glasses of water through the dispenser in the door, and you're set. It just works without having to think about it, needs replacing roughly once a year, and the replacement process takes less than 2 minutes. I can appreciate that kind of simplicity.

    Works as it should. I buy this and it definitely filters all the bad deposits out of the water. It used to have clear housing but now it doesn't so you can't see how dirty the filter is. I'm sure the reason they did it was to sell more so people will buy it within the 6 month period instead of seeing that its not dirty yet.

    Annually, replace the water filter in my refrigerator. Having bought it from Best Buy, I naturally went back their to buy the right filter. As always they had it in stock. I trust they'll continue to stock it allowing me to enjoy a glass of water.

    This is the brand name filter for my refrigerator. I always come to Best Buy because I can check online whether it is in stock in my store, or if I need to pick it up later when it arrives. It never costs more than any other store, so why not get it here, especially if I have reward certificates to spend?

    This filter is so easy to install just push a bottom in the refrigerator next to the old one it will pop out, remove it and insert the new one untill it seats itself. once that's done just prime it by letting the water run through your Frigidaire refrigerator water dispenser for about a minute and it's ready for use.

    Without this filter or when it needs to be replaced, we can see sediments in the bottom of our water glasses. With it, we see none. Just remember when you replace an old one to run about 3 gallons of water thru it to clean out the old unfiltered water in the line. Then you're good to go.

    Glad to find this closer to home. Prior to this purchase I had to travel to Sears in Austin. What a pain! The price isn't much better than Sears but it is much closer to home. Price for this item is a little high for what is basically a charcoal filter but my drinking water tastes much better.

    This fits perfectly and works well. I bought an aftermarket, non name brand st first, which didn't fit. Spend the few extra dollars and get this one. Also, make sure you run the water for a few minutes before using. Otherwise, there are particles in the water

    The water filter for the fridge is a necessity for us, as we refill water bottles to save waste. However, did not know it was going to be as expensive as it is....yikes!
