Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far..... I replaced a 37 year old GE refrigerator with this model. I already see a difference lower noise level. I will update this review after I own the unit a little longer (I promise before 37 years pass) but I like its shelving and layout inside and it is much quieter than I expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for our needs This basic "old fashioned" freezer on top refrigerator is plain and SIMPLE, no bells and whistles. We don't need or care about all the extra stuff in some modern appliances. The glass shelves are sturdy and easy to keep clean, and being able to see through them is wonderful as lets more light through. Overall room is great. We easily reversed the door swing in 10 minutes. Also Energy Star approved! Very simple, basic, quality appliance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little noisy but I'm otherwise satisfied. I'm satisfied with my GE Refrigerator. I do wish it was a bit quieter. It does seem to make a noise that is different from normal compressor noise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best you can do for this size. I just replaced a similar model after 7 years, would have liked it to last longer but they don't make things like they used to. The drawers squeak & stick so we take them off the tracks. Those are really my only issues with this unit. It cools well, makes good use of space(like the cheese drawer)and runs quietly. Oh, they only give you ONE ice cube tray :) luckily I saved the old ones which are made better. Ok, enough griping, for what it's worth, I think this is my best bet in its size, I could go slightly bigger but I feel this serves our needs. Just hoping this one lasts a little longer.
