    Tons of space, no bells/whistles, great price

    I purchased this fridge on Black Friday for $1700, and it has spectacular bang for that buck. The 3 things that were must haves for us in a french door fridge were lots of space, ice/water access through the door, and the ice maker in the door (to maximize interior space). This fits all of those criteria perfectly, and for a great price (27.8 cu ft is huge!!). It doesn't have all of the bells and whistles, such as a Keurig brewer or a 4th drawer that can be opened separately from the main fridge, but these options will almost never be found at this price point (and we didn't need those options). So far, the fridge has been going strong for about a month with no issues, though I will be sure to update this review if that changes. Just as a heads up, the ice maker does not make/store a ton of ice, though this will always be a trade-off for "in-the-door" ice makers. Therefore, if you entertain a lot and/or use tons of ice, you will likely need to buy ice for those occasions. TL;DR I'd buy this fridge again without blinking an eye.

    We are a family of five adults and after almost 3 months have yet to fill this up. The freezer isn't as large as we need, but we have a separate freezer. The touch buttons for water, ice, etc, are extremely sensitive and switch from ice to water with the slightest brush of the hand. I like the height-adjustable racks. It holds very tall and very wide items. We happened to fill the top with food from a funeral and it froze the water line. After thawing, it worked perfectly. I enjoy the chime that lets you know the door was left open. You do have to open both doors to get to the drawers, but that gives you a long space to use instead of a small drawer on either size. The doors hold a lot of items and stay cold, plus I like the size and placement of the racks. It gets fingerprints very easily, but it cleans very easily with stainless steel cleaner.

    We've only had the new refrigerator for a week, but so far we are pleased with our purchase. We were looking at a similar model with the door in door feature, but didn't think that was something we needed or even cared for. So glad I mentioned that to the sales person as she checked and found we could get it without and saved ourselves a substantial amount of money. We also mentioned that we had a GE stove and microwave and she pointed out that this would have the same type of handles so our appliances would match better. I hadn't even thought about that, but it was another great selling point for me. I like the smooth rounded edges on the handles, I've had other types that would sometimes hook onto my clothing as I walked past.

    We initially had a side-by-side that seemed very small by the end of its life. We wanted not only a larger refrigerator, but one with a few bells and whistles - namely an ice-maker and cold, filtered water. Although it doesn't have more space than our old fridge, it is more efficiently arranged, with enough drawer spaces to organize items and make them immediately available without digging. The fridge and its adjustable shelves makes items very easy to see and get to as well. Definitely needed to update our fridge; we chose a great model.

    Love the bottom freezer. Love the fast chill option on the fridge and freezer. Sometimes the ice sticks together in the compartment but if you shake the holder it drops down. Not a lot of options for adjusting the shelves, at least with the bulk size items I use. I had to remove a shelf on one side to get my stuff to fit. Very well lit even in the freezer. Love the big fridge drawer, the sliding divider helps it to be more useful. I use one side for lunchmeat the other for cans of pop.

    I love my fridge. That's why I gave it 5 stars. I just don't know who to contact as there has been no follow up after the guys scratched the door when putting it together at our house. We also have the plastic bag like material stuck in the freezer door and a few other places and can't get it out. My husband was told the door would be replaced however no one has contacted us. My husband reminded me again that I needed to follow up on this so I'm leaving it in a review today.

    Our Entire kitchen was GE Profile in Slate finish except for the refrigerator and we absolutely hated our current unit - a Samsung - so we caught this unit on sale and never looked back. Buy with confidence - Best Buy’s price match policy is second to none - we saw the same unit advertised for less and Best Buy customer service happily refunded the difference quickly and painlessly. What’s not to love?

    I am just over the whole Stainless Steele hype! Yes, it does make your kitchen look nicely upgraded but I can't stand the fingerprints and water splashes and smears! So I opted for the Slate, and my kitchen still looks higher end! Love this refrigerator, it is quite large and very quiet! I love that I no longer have ugly smudges, it wipes clean easily! I also bought the matching stove and microwave, next I am going to purchase the dishwasher!

    I bought it 2 months ago. So far so good. Hope it will last more than 9 years like my old side by side GE. It’s spacious and looks classy. The only thing I don’t like about it is I don’t see the temperature of the fridge and the freezer. It produces too much ice that we have to empty it everyday. There’s no holder in case some water drops from the dispenser. Other than that, my family and I are happy and satisfied.

    Love the size of my refrigerator. I also like the lighting inside. It is very bright. The only thing I don’t like is if you press a glass against the ice dispenser handle it scratches it. Learned that the first day I got it. I know this has nothing to do with the refrigerator itself but the delivery from Bestbuy was horrible. The worst delivery drivers I have ever had.

    I love this fridge. It’s beautiful and matches our cabinets. We replaced a Samsung that the ice maker kept freezing over. I understand where people say it is loud. But I think that is because more and more homes have open concept so the kitchen and living room are together. Otherwise you would never notice

    Great refrigerator. I Love the slate/no fingerprint finish. I read the reviews but I have had no issues with dripping. And the loud ice maker is simply when ice is falling into cup. To be expected. I thought I would not have enough ice with the smaller in-door bin but we have yet to run out. Love it!

    Having the ice maker built into the door instead of taking up fridge space is a MAJOR plus! Theres so much configurability without having the ice maker taking up space. Drawer slide open easily. I do wish the water dispenser was a faster stream but thats kind of the nature of the small water line standard with all fridges

    Having struggled with a side by side because of a nearby wall, this fridge was just what we needed! Having the slim line ice maker in the door is perfect because we have enough clearance to remove the maker and clear any ice build up without difficulty. We love the color and finish and have been overall very pleased with this unit.

    Finally all my appliances match! I love the slate finish. I also love everything about this refrigerator. So much room inside, even with the ice maker on the door. You think you're losing door space, but I haven't missed it at all. The other bins more than make up for it.

    Replaced an older GE side by side love the extra space. yes because it does more and works the dual cooling the motor is a little bit louder but livable. Most new refrigerators are louder than the older ones because they are using different refrigerants to comply with new environmental rules.

    Love my giant Slate fridge from GE. Has everything you could want and more. Great lighting, large bins, super chilling feature, nice ice and water dispenser, open door alarm, easy glide freezer drawer, and nice sliding compartment dividers. Had a side by side, went with a French door top, bottom freezer, and I love it.

    I have only had the refrigerator for a few days but so far everything is working good. The installation was easy. The refrigerator is very quiet. There is a little noise when the turbo chill comes on but it’s not annoying. I love the slate color, it doesn’t show fingerprints like the stainless steel does.

    This replaced an 18-year-old GE side-by-side. I've wanted a French Door design for quite some time. The design of this refrigerator meets our needs very nicely. There is some noise from the compressor motor, but we find it to be minimal and completely acceptable - less noise than the one it replaced, which wasn't bad either.

    We were in need of a new fridge and wanted to try the French door style. I looked at reviews and price and decided on GE. This fridge has ample room, it is quiet, the ice and water work well, and it isn’t too big. I am very happy with the purchase.
