Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice refrigerator. I purchased this refrigerator to replace a side by side refrigerator-freezer that quit working. I have never had a bottom freezer refrigerator before but never liked the side by side so decided to give this a try. After doing some research on different brands and having good personal experience with LG products I decided on this one, and so far a very pleased with it. I didn't particularly want the stainless steel finish but so far am pleased with the limited amount of smudges and fingerprints that show up on it. The interior portion of the refrigerator seems huge compared to the same cf size of my old refrigerator and the layout is great. I really enjoy the LED lighting. The ice maker works great. I am still undecided about how well I am going to like the bottom freezer. It seems that items could easily get buried and forgotten in the bottom of it. The upper rolling drawer in the top of the freezer is very convenient but that is just a small portion of the total size. The refrigerator is very quiet except when the ice maker dumps the new batch of ice but that in my opinion is to be expected and is not a problem. The one and only issue I have with this refrigerator is the difficulty I have in opening the door. There is such a tight seal (which for efficiency I know is good) that I have to give the door a good yank to open it. I very smooth floors and even with the front legs down solid on the floor it still moves forward over time and I have to push the refrigerator back. I feel that the door should not be that hard to open. Another feature that I like is that it came with a door reversal kit which due to the layout of my kitchen I used. I found it to be very easy to do. Overall I am glad that I purchased this product and would recommend it to anyone wanting a single top door, bottom drawer, refrigerator-freezer

I am not able to listen to Pandora through my BD550 as I was able to before. It just says "unable to connect to the network", but Netflix works fine so I know it's connected.
