    We believe in filtered water and drink it ALOT! However, this brand is the only kind we can use for our fridge and is hard to find. It's never stocked in the shelves! We are lucky to get one! We usually have to "stock up" forcing us to have to buy the last two on the shelf because they are hard to find. Every time we go in to check, there is a small space on the shelf as if the store only carries a total of 2-4. The price is insane. To bad there isn't a universal or generic one, otherwise, I'm sure if buy it! And they don't last 6 months! We find ours to last about very 4, stretch it out to every 9 months and we have a filter system on our main. We tested our water. And found the alkaline balance is off. We invested in the zero water handheld system and found no traces of alkaline. If GE could produce these results, I'd pay the price of 35.99+tax! But as for now, we use our zero more than we do our fridge! And it lasts ALOT LONGER!!

    I enjoy my French Door refrigerator and to be able to get the correct part for it is important. This is the second filter. The first one I bought, I was sold by an Best Buy employee that said all GE filters fit the same product. That may be true for current years but my French Door refrigerator was one of their first designs and water sprayed all over the inside while trying to put it in the slot. I returned it and the lady Best Buy employee that helped was on top of my problem and checked to see if I could get my money back as she sold me the new filter. I returned the filter that was wrong and was credited back that amount. So pleased that this trip to Best Buy was successful.

    So happy that Best Buy sells this product for your fridge! I originally though you could only get this at Lowe's or Home Depot. Sear's used to carry it but nowadays you have to hunt it down. Best Buy sold it at the best price compare to the last one I bought at Lowe's. No more huntng around, I'll just come to Best Buy and get it! I ordered it on-line and picked it up at the store...such a no-brainer. Funny thing is that you have to go through so much security verification at the store when it's pick-up time. You have to show your verification email, credit card and driver's license...what are we in an airport? Walmart doesn't even verify so much:)LOL

    I bought a house in which the previous owner left 3 generic refrigerator water filters for me. When it came time to change the water filter NONE of the three new generic filters worked. I even contacted the manufacturer but had little success. So I decided to try the GE brand filter before calling in for service repair. Upon installing the GE filter I had instant success. So I recommend not to skip corners for a "cheaper" price. Stick with a name brand.

    What can I say? It's a water filter..... It is easy to install, etc. I think that whoever is in charge of setting prices for Best Buy should really check around to see what price the competition has set for this filter. Every time I buy this filter, I go through getting it price matched. It is cheaper by not just a few dollars every single time. Usually on most things I have purchased at Best Buy, they are pretty close to (or below) competitor's pricing.......however, they have missed the mark on pricing this item!

    I find these filters, as recommend by the manufacturer, to be expensive. But luckily Best Buy price matches! Fits my GE refrigerator. If living in a high pollutant area, like SE TX, I'd recommend using another filter as well, like a Zero water filter. After testing my fridge water, there were still pollutants the GE filter doesn't get out. Although it helps, it doesn't get everything. But it's the filter that fits the fridge and is much better than nothing!

    I tried getting cheaper filters and ended up regretting it. These filters are better for you and your family. Recently, our water main was being replaced near our home and I noticed all kinds of impurities and color in our water. I tried to skimp on filters and got what I paid for. Now, with these filters, the water just looks and tastes better

    Expensive Water Filter & Hard to Get On

    This water filter is fairly basic and does it’s job well. The issue is putting it on killed my water capabilities through the referigerator until the maintenance technicians came in. For $50 GE should have done a better job. I’ve had Samsungs and KitchenAid referigerator and while physically getting their filters out was slightly harder once installed they just worked Senich was not the case with this GE that stopped dispensing water post installation.

    Design flaw but does the job

    Does what it’s supposed to once you get it in. Instructions are very vague and you have to take apart the cover to get it in properly. All other filters you just unscrew and screw back in, not this. Make sure to take off the cover in the area of the filter to see and properly detach and reattach. I didn’t and water went gushing out when I unscrewed it.

    This actual GE filter isn't widely available at brick/mortar stores so I've been purchasing alternative MWF filters made by other orgs. I found this on Best Buy website and it was 15% off so I purchased. The alternatives are cheaper, bigger and the water seemingly shoots out much quicker but I oddly feel more confident in the water quality from this GE filter. Probably just perception and not actually reality but I trust the GE quality processes more than no name filter.

    It was surprising to find this item at Best Buy but I found next to the appliance area. This is a manufacturer replacement filter so you can trust that it will be easy to install and replace older filter. Once installed we once again enjoy cold water without the red light warning of needed filter. Overall the price is the same as other retailers. I would recommend sticking with this manufacturer filter rather than a generic model.

    Water from this filter is better tasting than any other filter I've had the occasion to sample water from. Everybody who comes to our house says the same thing. We have moved since then and now we use a Zero water dispenser because our refrigerator doesn't have water and ice in the door. We miss this filter because the Zero water doesn't taste as good no matter how pure it is.

    We've used these (or their predecessors) for 15 years in our GE fridge. It really does improve the water taste, and reduces scale in our electric teakettle. The GE one claims to filter out certain common pharmaceuticals from water supplies, whereas some of the store brands don't make that claim--I can't speak for, that, but probably a good thing.

    First, my store in Gainesville where I purchased the refrigerator has only 1 option and with that option only 1 in stock, This filter is expensive as THEY GOT YOU! As stated it lasts only 5-6 months. Was easy to take out the old and put in the new. Do I recommend this item, yes as I have no alternative. Wish I had options

    Nice economical filter that works perfectly in the GE Profile refrigerator. I have purchased this filter over the years and love the clean fresh water taste. It eliminates the need to purchase bottle water, while still providing clean filter water. I always buy my filters at Best Buy, because they are conveniently located and avoids the need to purchase online and wait for delivery.

    We have had our GE Refrigerator for 16 years and it just keeps going. The water filter is fantastic and the taste quality is superb. They suggest replacing the filter every 6 months, but we replace it closer to once a year. We use the filtered water a lot each day, and you can tell when you need to replace the filter, the water pressure slows down, but the water quality remains the same.

    Filter works well, is located in a good spot and is easy to install. However it is generally only good for 3-4 months unless you do not use the water dispenser very often. Also it seems to always leak a little as you take the old filter out. I know there is water left in the filter even after turning it off, but it seems like you should be able to design a filter that will not leak as you remove it.

    My town has good water but it tastes so much better when I use the water from my refrigerator dispenser. This filtering system works great. My dogs notice the difference and will drink more when I give them the filtered water than they will when I'm stuck giving them tap water. These water filters are also very easy to change out. I have never had a problem with them leaking either.

    This is the 2nd or 3rd water filter I've purchased, with no problems. This time they didn't seem to have to regular one I've purchased before.. I installed this one and about 3 days later my water and ice in the door stopped working. So I guess its too early to tell if the filter or something else happened to stop the fridge functions.. Need to get a repairman..
