    Water filter

    This water filter for my LG refrigerator is much cheaper than the LG brand one. It fits in easily, and is simple to install. I have not given it 5 stars because I don’t really know how well it filters water without having the water tested by a lab. I do know that when I fill my water bottle, if I fill it with unfiltered water, after an hour or so, I can smell and taste chlorine. With the filtered water, ido not get that chlorine taste. The water tastes fresh and pure, even after a few hours.

    Go With The BestBuy Brand

    When I bought our LG refrigerator for our new house I did not realize that I could be looking at nearly $200 for new filters every 4-6 months. When I finally had to purchase the filters I was lucky I could use the BestBuy brand water filter over the LG brand, saving me nearly 50%. Unfortnately, BestBuy does not make an air filter for my LG unit so I had to bite the bullet there, but don't give up, always ask for lower cost generic or off brands when you can.

    Much cheaper than LG filter, but be careful

    So BestBuy sells two Insignia filters that were both listed as appropriate non-oem replacements for my LG fridge. The first one I purchased leaked water immediately after installing it, and wouldn't stop leaking. I returned it to the local store (bought it online), and they replaced it witha nearly-identical model with an ever-so-slight design difference. Second filter works like a champ, and for 1/3 of the cost of the LG replacement. Just make sure you get the right SKU!

    I always used the original LG filter for my LG refrigerator, but few months ago the store ran out of it and I decided to try this filter. My entire family (wife and children) like it and recommend 5 star rating for the product. Again, it has just been few months but everyone is really happy with it.. especially my wife...it is also significant cheaper than the LG brand filter, unsure why.. In the meantime, we are glad rolling along ... Highly Recommend it !!!

    These filters work wonderfully for the Kenmore Elite refrigerator! I have purchased these filters twice now and I have been very happy with them. As others have mentioned, you are getting two filters for the price of one brand name filter. I will keep purchasing these because they are less expensive and they work very well.

    A Quick Change

    We like nice clear and clean water and ice cubes as well as the next family. Our water has been tested and found to be pretty good. Still, you figure that having an extra filter system can't hurt. It seems to us that we have to change our filter quite frequently. The audible and visual cues are a bit persistent. The filter is reasonable easy to change. We just wish we would get a bit more service time out of them!

    Price / Performance Sweet Spot

    While the factory LG cartridges are way too expensive and the knock-offs from China on Amazon always give you pause, these seem to be the sweet spot in the middle. Who knows, maybe they come out of the same factory for Insignia, but feel a little better being Best Buy's house brand. Fit was spot on in my LG refrigerator and water tastes as it should.

    I bought this set of two filters for 40 bucks and one filter after installation started leaking in my LG refrigerator. I had to change and throw that one away and replace it with the second one. One important point: You must soak the filter for 15 minutes before the installation. This was not the case on LG original filters.

    Inexpensive alternative to LG branded filters

    I was looking for cheap filters for my LG refrigerator, and these fit the bill. They work, my water doesn't taste metallic anymore, and I pretty much got two for the price of one LG filter at MSRP. Pricing is even better if you go for a subscription rate with Best Buy - which is how I expect to put on subscription with the next wave of filter replacements now that I know these work well.

    Flooded my fridge after installed due to failure of o ring/ seal. Glad i caught quickly. After inspecting the filter it was clear the o ring had failed. I tried to cheap out getting a brand that should work. My advice is pay the extra charge and get the real LG filter

    Great water filter for the price. LG filters are too expensive to be changing it every six months. Easy to replace and don't leak. I am not sure if it works better than the original but being cheaper works for me. I don't smell or taste anything different after using it so it must be working.

    I chose this brand for the price. I wanted to try it and compare it to the LG filters I’ve purchased in the past. This worked really well for the first few months, so I’m likely going to replace at 6 months. However, the water streams well and didn’t lag like the LG brand did. I’d likely by this again if the LG water filter is not available.

    It's not the right item.

    Even though my refrigerator number is clearly marked on the package, the product does not work. Comparing to the old unit, they are not the same. AND, because I purchased them 90 days ago, Best Buy will not give me a refund! I think that speaks highly of the product and of Best Buy. And reading below, I will never hear anything back from Best Buy.

    These filters are what I always use. The LG brand are way to expensive and I can't tell any difference? The both need changed at about the same time yet these are half the price of the LG's and it would be my guess the same supplier makes them.......save my money to retire early!

    My LG refrige is only 6 months old but the control panel alerted me that the water filter needed replaced. I went to Best Buy, the frige was purchased there, to buy the filter which was $50 for one. after looking at all the filters there I purchased the Best Buy brand(which was $50 for 2) an it fit perfectly and seems to filter just as well as the LG brand.

    I bought the double pack last year and when I replaced in September, it leaked. We took filter out and reinstalled but it still leaked terribly. I bought a single one to replace it and all is good. I must have gotten one with bad seal. Fortunately that was the first bad filter I have purchased.

    These replacement filters will work but not as well as the factory replacement filters do. The 'replace filter' reminder will not reset but your refrigerator will still operate effectively. So if you don't mind seeing the visual reminder, these are a much more cost effective alternative.

    Store staff recommended this 2-pack as an alternate to the LG branded filters. I'm kind of a brand guy and would generally prefer a product (in this case a filter) that was made for a specific purpose. Well, cost rules out some times. This 2 pack was at least $10 cheaper than 2 singles of the LG variety.

    I use to buy the authentic water filters which cost $20 more than these Insignia filters. I decided to try the Insignia filters and notice no difference in water taste or quality. Save your money and go with Insignia. You can even buy the 2-pack for the same price as one LG filter.

    I bought this for my new refrigerator. I needed one ASAP, so I purchased this one. The refrigerator suggests using the manufacturer branded filters, but I have used both and haven't noticed any difference besides price.
