Good buy for me!
Date:March 15, 2011
Best Features: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality, size- sq.ft. per width
"I was leary at first. I was unfamiliar with LG refrigerators but this was the ONLY refrigerator that offered everything I was looking for. I have only had this refrigerator for 2 weeks but so far, I love it. With a french door model you should expect at times to have to open both doors, common sense! The space you have along with the ice maker is great! Ice maker is a little slow but for my situation it is just fine, unlike others I don't even notice noise from my ice maker. If it is really quite you might hear the ice drop. Overall so far I am very pleased with this product."

Best fridge I have owned!!
Date:January 15, 2011
Best Features: Performance, Style/Design, Quality, size
"We were looking for a bigger fridge, and the French door style appealed to us. When we saw this LG model in the store, it really caught our eye! Once delivered and hooked up, I have never owned a fridge as nice as this one. OK, so you have to open both doors to get at the vegetable tray, and the ice maker isn't that big, but the fridge works great, it's huge, and it keeps all of our food at the perfect temperature, especially the milk!! I don't like warmish milk!! Thank-you LG!!"

Great refrigerator
Date:January 12, 2011
Best Features: Performance, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality, small ice maker
"We've had this for a month now. Unless you use a ton of ice, this is a great unit. Why waste 25% of your freezer or refrigerator space on an ice maker for that once per year party. Freezer drawer is also outstanding the way pulling the outer drawer easily pulls the upper inner drawer too and if you don't want what is in there finger tip pressure glides it back out of your way. LG really thought this baby out. If you have a family of 6 using ice it is probably a bad choice. Otherwise a great machine."

Returned it

"From the ice maker to the freezer drawer this unit proved a poor choice for us. It was necessary to constantly purchase bags of ice, the ice maker was slow and did not store very much. The freezer drawer got in the way more than it was used. It was opened frequently just to get ice since the ice maker was empty most of the time. Both doors had to be opened most to the time to find something. It was poor enough to make the decision to replace it with another unit."

Great elegance, size, and convenience.
If you’ve ever wished you had more space to get more organized, your wish has been granted. With 28 cubic feet, you get that extra space. You also get extras like Smart Cooling technology, designed to help keep all that extra food fresher, longer. Plus, our own Slim SpacePlus™Ice System, which frees up even more room in the door. And with French-doors it’s real easy getting food in or out of this refrigerator.
