This fridge has been a welcome change from our old one. It is shallow, so slightly smaller than what I was used to, but I can see EVERYTHING in the fridge. Almost everything I need fits well and I think it's deisgn will actually help us waste less food because nothing will get "lost." My two hang-ups: 1.) We have three kids. We buy more than one gallon of milk per week, but you can only fit one gallon in each door. There is plenty of room for half-gallon or smaller, but that isn't our life. This is disappointing since I like to organize my fridge with similar items grouped together. 2.) The doors stay partially open and don't close softly! The are heavy and unless opened fully (more than 90 degrees open), they will slam shut on you unless you hold it open. For me this is annoying, but when they close on my toddlers, it is a little more of a problem.

So I previously had a Sub-Zero. I am writing this in comparison to the Sub-Zero. The main reason I bought this fridge is because it was 3k less than the Sub-zero. I can't justify paying that much for just a fridge. As far as the fridge itself, I like the look. The LED lighting is nice and bright. It seems so much smaller than my other fridge, esp the freezer. Oh well. I also did not opt for the water and ice dispenser. That would have taken out about 1/8 of the already modest fridge space. Also, I hear that increases problems by a lot. So far, I have had it for about 2 months. Working well.

So we are the first owners of a brand new home with this built-in fridge installed. The left door squeaks incessantly. There's a rotating center element that acts as a seal which is attached to the left door - it's coming off. This is a badly designed refrigerator and also shows evidence of bad workmanship. I would go out and purchase a SubZ or some other replacement if I didn't have to shell out nearly $9K for the privilege. Don't buy this thing. Go elsewhere, get a better product. We had repairmen in the house today trying to fix it - and they have to come back again with the parts. Not worth the aggravation!

I bought this product Oct. 2015. In July the main computer board broke, leaving us without a freezer for a month, during 95+ temps. The part was out of stock with no estimated time of arrival. After weeks of phone calls,headaches, and a the loss of a freezer full of food, they finally located the part and "repaired" it. The ice-maker broke that evening, and now that is out of stock. To spend this amount of money on a product and to have it break in less than a year, is maddening. To find out that none of the parts are readily available is ridiculous. The amount of time spent trying to rectify the situation is unacceptable.

Purchased this 2 months ago and it gave my new kitchen the best look as it is sleek and doesn't stick out and look bulky, which ruins the lines in the kitchen with a traditional fridge. We love it!!! And it's extremely quiet!

This is for a rental, and so far, so good. I am a little disappointed in the two drawers, as they keep popping off the runners, although it is easy to put them back on.
