Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love everything about my fridge My new ge fridge is great. So light and bright inside, and every easy to clean up spills. Water flow from dispenser is a little slow, but other than that it's wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice side by side refrigerator This is my first side by side refrigerator, and so far I am well pleased with the unit. I got the gloss black finish, and it looks great. Smudges are easily wiped up using a soft cloth with no cleaner needed; I use one of those soft cloths for polishing cars. You can set temperatures easily for both the fridge and freezer side right on the freezer door. I love the refrigerator side. The door has large shelves for big items such as gallon and half-gallon containers; this makes it convenient for accessing frequently used items and frees the glass shelves for other items. The nice thing about a side by side is that the shelf spacing is larger than a top freezer refrigerator since it goes from the top to the bottom of the unit allowing you to place tall items on the shelves. There are three drawers: one for snacks, one humidity controlled, and one sealed. The fridge has spill proof glass shelves which is nice. On the freezer side, as with all units with an ice maker, the ice maker takes up significant room on the freezer side. Of necessity, because the fridge side is wider, the freezer section is narrow. You cannot fit much into the door bins as they are kind of small. The shelves are not glass but plastic coated wire which is fine by me. On the door is an ice dispenser which I can???t comment on since I generally don???t use much ice. There is also a water dispenser that comes with a six month filter to provide filtered water that I find useful. I can???t comment on the reliability since I only had the unit for a month. It does run quite, however. On got this on sale for under $900 making this a pretty good deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my side by side My husband and I had a fridge that quit on us suddenly and we were forced to get one rather quickly. We went to a local Home Depot and this one had just been put on the floor as it was new product that they were featuring. We were apprehensive buying a product that we could not read reviews about it but loved the look of it and the style. We had it delivered the next day. It is our first side by side, we had the old fashion freezer on top, fridge on bottom and no frills one before. We LOVE this fridge and its features. It is quiet which is great since our house is not very big and the kitchen is open to the livingroom. The ice maker is able to keep up with the amount of ice we need since almost the whole family is home all day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly surprised We bought this refrigerator on a whim, I was looking for a dishwasher but saw this, (out of the box), slightly scratched, custom colored, (Almond), side by side at Best Buy, It was missing the manual and water by-pass filter divice. The salesman gave us a great deal and I had not read any of the reviews, I just bought it. We have had it for a week and I am very happy with it. It looks great, I love the feel of the doors, the quality of the shelves and the ice maker works great. I had some problems getting the water to flow but discovered that because I had not removed the old in line filter in the basement the water had to force through both filters and I couldn't get any pressure. Once I took out the old in line filter, everything flowed fine. Since I didn't have the owners manual I looked it up on line and downloaded it. On problem I haven't solved is trying to vertically align the doors. The manual says all youi have to do is get a 7/8 in wrench and turn the nut up or down. My door hing mechanism does not look anything like what's in the manual. It is like they redsigned the door and didn't change the manual. I will take off the bottom grill to see if I can figure it out. The freezer door is about 1/4 inch above the refrigerator door. I looked at one in Home Depot and I noticed it's door also was not aligned, but don't worry, I'm sure it is an easy fix, I just have to figure it out. My wife is very happy with it and she admits that with a side by side you sacrifice a little space compared to the old style, frig on bottom and freezer on top. It just doesn't seem to hold as much but she says it probably is just a process with organizing everything differently. I wish it came with some extra door shelves but I guess you can probably buy them on line. It really has an ample number of shelves, but, in our case we have room to put one extra on each door. It is very quiet and I love the digital temp controls and tempurature monitor on the freezer door. I am very happy with this frig.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good looking fridge Height is great, and the door handles are so nice and easy to grab, feels very sturdy and is so quiet. It is very bold to look at. The night light on the ice and water dispenser is a great plus. The digital tempature and ice controls on the door are blended well and very managable to see and operate. My little neice came over and liked it so much wanted to play with all the buttons , thats when the lock controls came in very handy, a great feature.I also chose this paticular model not only for the GE name but the $62. yearly operating costs compare to other models, Buy , Buy Buy this Model.
