NOT A FAN.
We've owned this fridge about 18 months. It beeps constantly, even when the doors are closed. Ice builds up too quickly in the back of the freezer. Once this happens, ice starts building up where the fan is located, which then makes the fridge sound like a NASA test rocket.
We had to empty the fridge, unplug and let it defrost for 48 hours before being able to use it again.
The incessant beeping drives us nuts & there are not many LG technicians in our area, so it's hard to schedule an appointment.
Plastic bins sound like they are cracking when you pull them out. This fridge is just not worth the hassle.

Own it - HATE it.
Bought this refrigerator 1 year ago and have hated it everyday since. It is poorly designed with the big light in the center of the top shelf preventing you from putting tall containers (like milk jugs) on the shelf. The door alarm goes off far too quickly. The ice maker is very noisy and the constant opening and closing of the freezer door to get ice causes an ice and frost build up in the back of the freezer. PLUS, just one year after purchase and the motor sounds like something that could power NASA vehicle through the atmosphere and as of today I have a wonderful water leak from underneath the refrigerator - which is awesome for my brand new laminate floors. Not happy - not impressed! Would NEVER buy another LG product.

Broken at eight months
I love the bottom freezer configuration because food is at eye level. The interior is spacious, and the small ledge inside is convenient for resting grocery sacks or food when moving things around. After 8 months of owning it, though, the refrigerator went out and we lost the food in it. Also, a crisper drawer cracked in the back from normal use. Our previous refrigerator is in the basement, still running after over 15 years. We're disappointed that this happened with an otherwise nice refrigerator.

More than I expected
I was limited in what I could purchase unless I raised my kitchen cabinets. I assumed because I was strapped by dimensions I'd have to give up features. I cannot believe how beautifully this appliance is designed. I especially love the door shelf layout and space. And the bottom freezer is fantastic - so much more room than I thought! I was greatly pleased to see that having a "shorter" fridge did not mean I had to sacrifice storage space or features. My one teeny, tiny disappointment is in the amount of noise the ice maker makes - but it's definitely nothing I can't live with and get used to. I am VERY happy with this product.
