    Even better when the price drops

    One of the inconveniences you gain when you have a refrigerator that dispenses water is having to occasionally replace the water filter. This means having to set a reminder at the manufacturer's recommended interval to change it. Mine is recommended to be changed every six months. The real inconvenience is having to flush out a couple of gallons of water (although to be safe I do three). So why the five stars? The value Best Buy gave when they dropped the price of this filter to nearly half of what I would normally pay means I can buy a year's worth of filters for half a year's worth of pricing. That opened up my budget to spend a few bucks on some gadgets at Best Buy that I normally wouldn't have. Keep an eye on the Daily Deals!

    Good for a Refrigerator Filter

    I'm a bit of a water snob. My family owns a Purified Water and Ice store. As such, anything less than 100% pure H2O is simply not okay. I literally taste the difference (water should have no taste). However, this is not bad if you are simply going to be using the water to make your flavored drink of choice. You do need to flush the filter (about 3-5 minutes or 2-3 gallons) so that you don't have a strong carbon taste. Overall, not a bad product (especially since it's better than nothing for making ice and dispensing water from your fridge), but I'll take my reverse osmosis water instead.

    In the not too distant past filters were absent on refrigerators but with the newer models they've become prevalent as a way, it seems, of manufacturers insuring that you continue to spend with them. Whether you use it frequently or not the warning replacement light indicates it's time to replace it after a certain amount of time has expired. I suppose you have to have this but it seems that a cardboard cartridge inside the filter cartridge would be a cheaper alternative, in lieu of the expensive metal cartridge..

    Bought an LG refrigerator at Best Buy and looked all over for the filter when it came time to replace. It was easy, and they had it in stock at store. I checked on other replacement types, but did not want to spend that much to buy 3 to 5 to get a discount. It appears to be a good filtration system for my water, and having a higher quality filter has helped save money when the kids ask for "bottled water." We have a high quality filter, "drink that water" is my response now.

    The 2 or 3 times I've bought this product, I've had problems. After 2 months the water would slow down and it wouldn't produce the same amount of ice. Do not get this filter. It's better and cheaper to purchase the filters online. They actually last for around 5 months since we have such high usage.

    Good Filter

    I have changed water filters twice now on my new LG refrigerator. When the filter is first applied and setup, for the first week I can taste the filter. Then after that the filter taste goes away and the water tastes excellent. The filter taste typically does not last longer then a week or two. My fridge recommends changing the filter every 6 months, I am stretching it out, and the water quality does not seem to be lacking. I'm going to see if I can make it last longer.

    Sticking with OEM parts.

    I have had my LG LSC26905TT refrigerator for years and replace the water filter roughly twice a year. I'm a believer in sticking with replacement parts from the mfg. Sure it costs a little more but knowing it's going to fit right with no leaks outweighs the few extra bucks. The added bonus is purchasing this through Bestbuy.com. The web site is great, easy to use, and delivery was on the day as promised.

    Great product. Filters easily located in Best Buy by the appliances. Easy to remove old filter and install new filter. Really prefer the location of this filter in my fridge compared to where other filters are located in previous fridges. Great tasting water and ice when using the filter. Only downside is the price of filter but compared to other comparable filters they are about the same.

    Filter Really Cleans up water

    This filter, regardless of its high cost, works very well. After replacement, flushed my Ice and water system within hours and the water smell, and floating fibers from the past filter was not present. Great product, but needs a price adjustment. My refrigerator is 7 years old and the price of the filter has never gone down.

    Does what it is supposed to do but expensive

    This filter like the filter for our previous refrigerator (different brand), is more expensive than I think it needs to be. Why are water filters for the whole house cheaper than the ones you have to buy for your refrigerators? You are stuck having to buy these so I guess there isn't much else to say. The ease of replacing them is the design of the refrigerator, not the filter.

    I bought a new LG black stainless steel refrigerator didn't have one and salesperson didn't mention I needed to buy one when I bought the refrigerator. I wanted the ice maker on the door to have more space but the water filter still takes some space and it's a much needed item.

    The water filter I purchased was what LG company recommends for my model of the refrigerator. The instillation was very straight forward, mostly because the turning directions (clockwise/counter clockwise) are clearly marked on the permanent part of the refrigerator. Hooray for clarity of instructions.

    This filter works well for the intended 500 gallons of water for its lifetime. In theory this is a six month span, but in my household that 500 gallons is in reality about 3-4 months. I wish the filter lasted longer because it is a $49 purchase every 3-4 months, but I suppose that is a small price to pay for mostly pure water.

    We bought our new fridge about 9 months ago from Best Buy and our filter was good for 6m. We weren't sure we'd be able to find the proper filter locally and didn't know Best Buy sold them. After going to several other stores we finally went to Best Buy just to see and *BAM*. This is the correct filter and now my water and ice taste better!

    Other than learning how to use Windows 8, I have had no issues with this laptop. I was concerned about not having a CD/DVD drive at first especially when wondering if I would need to buy a new printer, but as the Best Buy associate explained, just about everything is available online including setting up an older printer to a newer computer.

    They say to replace every 6 months but I can tell these are pretty dense filters and work for quite a while and still do their job filtering the chlorine taste from the water. Normal tap water tastes weird to me anymore. Works good!

    The filter makes the water taste great however the cost is considerable, I mean its a filter for a frig and you waste a lot of water when you put a new one in. Decided to fill my watering cans and water my plants, it hasn't bothered them so far. The money you save on these new refrigerators is just put into purchasing a filter.

    The filter works great, easy to install. The included month and number stickers for your calendar and the filter itself is a very helpful tool for remembering when you installed the filter. We drink a lot of water and these filters last nearly a year before they need to be changed.

    The filter makes the water clean and fits perfectly. If my refrigerator ever stops working because of the filter, it's an LG branded filter and I can call LG and get them to fix it. Best Buy price matched another retailer that carried a cheaper filter, and they always have this filter in stock, so it's convenient.

    We recently purchased an LG refrigerator upon moving into our new home. This is the filter required for our model. Not that the tap water is bad in our location but it definitely tastes better after filtered. You can really tell when it is time to replace. The water gets a slightly "off" taste to it.
