Household of 2 Adults w/3 Grand-kids Daily
Okay, we have now owned this refrigerator since September and are ready to review the unit. First thing I need to get out of the way is it took us 90+ days to receive the unit. It was out of stock everywhere and we had to wait for it to arrive from Korea by container ship.
With that said everything from this point forward has been good. The problems I have read about on other reviews like the ice maker issues, warm water dispensed and so on have not manifested themselves in our unit. I had one ice jamb by the full sensor on the is maker but simply opened the door to the ice maker and tapped the jamb and it's been all good since then. The water dispensed will give you about 15 to 20 oz of chilled water every 10 minutes or so. If I need it cold right away I just add ice and it's all good. My old unit had a larger tank inside the fridge and would supply more but I would rather have the extra capacity in the unit verses a constant stream of chilled water. I figure that's what the ice is for anyway.
The one common complaint is the water dispenser
lever getting scratched easily with a glass. I will vouch for that one. It is covered with stainless steel and if you move the glass around while dispensing water it will scratch the stainless. Not a big deal but a simple plastic coating over the leaver could help that issue (that is until that gets marred up and looks bad too). I don't see a good solution besides going with a cheaper looking lever.
The capacity inside is good considering the size that you lose from it being counter depth. The only reason I gave 4 start for value is the fact that if you don't need counter depth you get more for less with the standard size equivalent. However, I would have needed to uninstall my patio door completely to get the standard size in my house. Standard is now huge...
Other than the relatively minor items above this is a very good refrigerator that looks good inside and out and serves our need quite well.

Very satisfied with this refrigerator
Like this refrigerator so far, (it's only a month old). Marked it low on value since the counter depth models are significantly more expensive than the full size models which makes no sense. Ice maker is small but puts out enough ice for us. Controls are easy to use.

love the little ice cubes!
I have been looking for a refrigerator that makes little ice cubes for a long time and this one is perfect! Little cubes or crushed! The refrigerator seems well made and has many nice features. I'm so glad we went with the counter-depth model. It looks so nice in my new kitchen!

Frustrating that you pay more for counterdepth appliances. However, it looks great and made our kitchen look updated like a fresh coat of paint.
