This is a wonderful fridge The size is great, and the efficiency is unbelievable. August 6, 2013
Very good product, reasonable price I was looking for a fridge that would perform well without all the extra ammenities that I don't use. I have owned GE applicances for years and they have never failed me. This is a great fridge for my needs and was a great price compaired to the options. I would recommend this brand to anyone. August 4, 2013
Very good buy I am very happy with the size, color and operation of this refrigerator. July 23, 2013
Love my New GE Refigerator!!! I have had my refrigerator almost a week now and I love it. First Stainless steel appliance. Working on changing out my others to stainless as time goes on. Stainless does need to be cleaned, been using glass cleaner. Haven't had long enough to experiment with all the products on the market. But still like the stainless over my old white refrigerator any day of the week. Great Storage space, like the shelf for sodas in a can. Also like that I can see the temperature of the fridge and freezer at a touch. Never had that option before. Crushed ice maker is pretty quiet especially compared to my old one. No ice falling everywhere anymore just tilt glass up to dispenser. My one complaint was with the top drawer not sliding too well but took care of that with a little furniture polish on the drawer. Slides great now. Perfect fix. Really liked this refrigerator when I saw it and once I read the reviews, I was sold. Thanks for a great refrigerator, good price. July 14, 2013
Excellent features, good appearance, and affordable Excellent features, good appearance, and affordable July 10, 2013
A great mid range refrigerator Just finished installing my stainless side by side and all is well. I removed the doors myself and brought it in through the 32 inch door. The instruction for the installation was written well so that I was able to follow it and got the unit hooked up and making ice in no time. Did lots of comparison shopping and this model beat others in value and functions. I will come online if anything happens to this unit that needs mentioning. July 7, 2013
great fridge I wish i had the quick ice feature. Otherwise I love my fridge! June 23, 2013
Mr What a great value. You get a lot of features for a great price. June 7, 2013
