    Great freezer with decent amount of storage

    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.

    Good Small Basic Freezer

    This freezer is fine for storing small quantities of food. It is probably half the size of my previous chest freezer, so I do find it a little small, but that is probably just my own experience. It is quite light, so don't lean on it before you fill it with food or you'll push it across the floor. The cord provided is also a little short, and I had to buy a heavy duty extension cord to reach the plug.There is also an open area, about 8" x 6" in the back of the freezer where the cord comes out. There are some holes above the open area that makes it appear that a small panel is missing. I checked with GE however, and they said there is no panel to cover this area; it is intended to be open. I don't like this open area because my freezer sits outside and leaves and dirt could blow in. Other than these issues, it seems fine. I would probably recommend this freezer even with the two issues I've mentioned (short cord and open panel in back).

    Excellent, compact freezer storage solution

    I was looking for a compact freezer storage solution for my garage. Living in the desert and knowing this freezer would reside in the garage led to the big question: how would this units withstand the heat of summer? Research confirmed the freezer would likely hold up, and while we haven't yet had triple digits I'm optimistic that the freezer will operate as well in August as it has since taking delivery a few months ago. So far so good. The unit affords the perfect amount of space and runs quiet, so I can recommend this product. It's an exceptional value for the money when purchased on sale.

    perfectly sized freezer

    After 23 years, our old, very large upright (family of 5) needed to be traded in for a smaller model (just the 2 of us now). The GE 7 cubic foot chest freezer is perfect for us. It has a nice size footprint, more energy efficient, a basket and shelf for accessibility with the possibility to add another basket. We have only had it about a month, so far - so good! We had a storm-related power outage yesterday and the freezer weathered the storm with no food loss, didn't see any sign of defrosting and refreezing damage to our food. We are happy with our purchase and would love for it to last 23 years! = )

    I really like it a lot. It's the perfect size for my husband & myself. I love that it has 2 baskets. Although I do wish it had some lift out baskets to sit on the bottom to make it easier to reach those items. I just have my bags of frozen veggies still in the plastic grocery bags that I lift out when I need something. The only issue I have with it is, as I read on one other review, the frost builds up very quickly in the area near the hinges.

    From the moment I placed the order on line few weeks ago, delivery on time until today I m happy with my purchase. It was very quick, professional. Larger freezer that helps me with my frozen food. Dog's raw meals, fish, bones, ice-cream maker, veggies/fruits - all fits. It has two little trays. I wish it had a divider, but we are managing.

    This is the nicest mid-size freezer I have seen or owned. It arrived in perfect condition, looks great in the home, so far works perfectly. I am thankful to find something aesthetically pleasing. Also, I checked the kWh's and it uses very little electricity!

    My inlaws already owned this freezer. Of course it is older but it is by the same maker and size. It worked well for a family of 6. So it was a no brainer for me. We are a family of 4 and have so much room. I could not be more happier with it! It is quiet, roomy and got cold within an hour of plugging it in.

    I found this freezer on the Best Buy website and decided that it was just what I was looking for in terms of price and performance. This freezer is spacious and is extremely quiet and keeps food solidly frozen. It didn't take long to get used to not hearing the sound of the freezer motor. I would recommend it to others.

    I purchased a 5.o and a 7.o GE freezer, one for my sister, and one for myself . I love the space it provides. It functions very well, and really surpassed my expectations. It is very quiet, and spacious. It fits my needs perfectly. Best Buy already had my business.

    I read the reviews first and they were right. This fridge is quiet and keeps the food freezer like it is supposed to. I wish it had a light inside but this is a small freezer and fits great in the garage, not taking up too much room.

    I was looking for a decent size deep freezer since our normal freezer is always stuffed full. We buy a lot of frozen foods, and I cut up a bunch of fruits and veggies for our toddler and freeze them. This freezer is the perfect size and keeps everything perfectly frozen. No complaints so far.

    I just bought this freezer and so far, it has worked like a charm. I was able to fit a side of beef in it with room to spare. Of all the chest freezers I looked at, this GE brand (any of the GE chest freezers) had the best reviews and GE seems to make very good products.

    This freezer seems to have better storage space than other freezers with similar footprint. The movable storage bins make it convenient to find food in the freezer. Great freezer for the money!

    Bought this freezer mostly to store fish. It is not too big and fits well into a smaller space. Runs quietly and gets cold quickly. I wish it had more trays, has only 2, and no interior lighting. Otherwise this is a very good buy.

    Perfect size for a smaller house or apartment. Using it as there is not much space in our refrigerator freezer and needed more space. Fits perfectly in a smaller space like the corner of garage.

    i thought the price was very reasonable and that's the only reason why i bought it even though it wasn't an absolute need. i have a chest freezer already but wanted to keep with the GE branded appliances in my kitchen.
