Fantastic product with great features
From the lights in the freezer and refrigerator to the generous space on the doors, drawers and shelves this is a wonderful product. I have loved it since I had it installed and would highly recommend this to everyone I know and don't know.

Good value for the price
I like the large ice bin , the LED lights in both the freezer and refrigerator areas. The quiet running, and smooth clean look is a real asset for any kitchen.
I really like the strong glass shelves also.

Has some flaws, but a good value for the money
For around $1,000, this is a good value and offers a lot of usable space. I wanted a French-door, bottom-freezer model, but for another $500 ... no thanks. I am too cheap for that. We bought the "smooth black" model which is a shiny black. However, within 5 minutes of it being in my house, we opened the door to the freezer, it hit a cabinet, and we had a dent. It also scratches easily. Dents can be removed with dry ice but scratches .... not so much. Our old fridge was black but had more of an "alligator" look and was very sturdy with great dent and scratch resistant, a real bonus in a house with teenagers and dogs that roll around on the floor knocking things around. The thin sheet metal used on this fridge was a surprise. I now have it covered with magnetic pictures of the family and that will be its protective coating for the rest of its life, unfortunately! Others have mentioned the weird lighting; I agree that a strip of LED lights should have been put in the back as well as the front. When the fridge is full, it's very dark in the back. But I LIKE the storage on the door, including the lowest rack, which works great for bottles of salad dressing. The doors hold gallons and cartons of milk and tall wine bottles including WITH the stopper in them. People have mentioned that the big shelves inside the fridge sag with too much food; I have not seen a problem with that yet even when I put a very large, mixing-bowl size bowl of chili along with many other leftovers right in the middle. So maybe if you had three or four heavy items, that would be different but it works for me (so far). The fridge stays at 38-40 degrees consistently on the 2nd lowest setting. We made more room in the freezer by removing the ice maker which we weren't going to use; if you don't want to use it, it removes with one screwdriver and 2 minutes' time. The freezer door does "pop" open a little when you slam the refrigerator door. So far, ours hasn't stayed open though. If it becomes a problem for you, be sure to level the fridge so it's tilted back just a tiny bit. This is a common problem on top freezer/fridges. For a no-frills basic refrigerator, this was a bargain. Given that, I am still going to buy a Square Trade warranty on it "just in case." There are a lot of electronic components in all appliances today, and you never get away with a repair bill under $500 with electronics.

Love the smooth finish. The full length pantry drawers holds a lot of food.The crisper drawers work well, also really like the led lighting. Love having a freezer light.
