Not impressed at all, the ice misses the container on the door and falls to bottom, when you open door they fall out. When the ice maker kicks out the ice, you will know it, just about from anywhere in house, along with it filling up with water again, barely noticed this with our old GE @ half the price, granted the ice container on the GE wasn't on the door. It is easier to get ice when you open the door for big amounts though. Set fridge at 38° it became a freezer, 42° is as low as you can go without ruining food by freezing it. The ball bearing drawer glides take up much of the added space the 25.4 offers, for the 3 drawers, it wasted approx 2" per side in fridge x 6 for 3 drawers = approx 1.25 sq feet. Opposed to no glides you just pull/drag out on runners using approx 1/2", I don't see much more ease in opening the drawers. It's also advertised as whisper quiet, just running I assumed, it is noisier than our old GE @ half the price in 01 with the ice/water in door. The GE went to our kids home still running BTW, that one the ice maker leaked.
