Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JohnVA A couple shortfalls from previous GE Profile 24.7
This fridge was a replacement to a 1997 GE Profile 24.7 .... so a virtual side-by-side comparison.
The layout is surprisingly not as efficient as the old one....storage does not accommodate as much.
Also, the ice dispenser on the freezer door....the "crushed ice" setting takes forever to issue crushed ice. The previous GE generation made crushed ice much, much faster. This current model....just churns and churns and churns and spits on small amounts.
That's about it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jmk Very good value
Like most non-high end refrigerators, the flimsy plastic drawers will likely not enjoy a full life of the unit, as my last GE went for 16 years. Shelves are sturdy and fully adjustible. Ice maker and water are great, and no issues with the temp control. I'll likely go with the 3 pack HD brand for $40 on the filters, instead of the GE 2pk for $50. We'll see.
Unit arrived and installed well. Installers crimped the water line, and I had to replace that afterward. Eh.
Unit had some residual insulation foam splatter on the inside by the fridge door. I know the right solvents to wash it away, so the Mrs is pleased. Still, not sure how it got past final QA at the plant, it was quite visiable. No issues on the unit's sound/noise. Water filling is water filling. Ice dumping is ice dumping. The defrost cycle results in water drips on the eval pan, so I hear a plunk...plunk... but then I grab a drink and walk away, so it doesn't 'rattle' me.
All told, decent unit, great price, faster delivery than the blue store, and even with the instl 'oops', I'd buy it again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by WhitePine Too noisy
The main complaint is the noise. As others have said, there is a loud dripping noise in the defrost cycle which seems to take place almost every time I am in the kitchen. I have a hearing disability and wear hearing aids, but I can hear this dripping noise no problem. I really feel sorry for people with normal hearing. Never have had a refrigerator before that did as much defrosting as this one.
Also, the refrigerator is actually taller than the spec sheet, making it necessary to cut my top cabinet off about 1/4". I should have had 1/4" clearance without cutting! I even measured the one on the display floor.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jak white side by side
product looks nice texture white finish
it states 25 cu ft
however inside unit has limited amount of shelving on doors
shelving inside ref rig side have no depth and the refrig itself inside in narrow
the 2 bins at bottom or should i say the 1 1/4 bins on the bottom are cheaply made
and the bottom bin is only 1/4 of a draw
you see this refrig has a lot of bump outs -inside from engineering
which makes the inside really small.
i had a 24.25 cu ft side by side and when i went to put the food in the
new refrig i was left with a lot of food that had no place to go.
i would not make this purchase again and i really do not like this refrig at all.
Its not noisy...its small and poorly made

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ohiofamily Great Fridge!
This is everything you think it will be! LOVE IT! Adjustable, efficient, cold as you want it, ice maker keeps up with two adults and two teens in summer heat. Home Depot did a GREAT job showing the fridge and explaining the features on the website; the only question I had was what color is the LED?!?! Lol- it's green (see the picture); but the info on the black "screen" part only lights up when you tell it to (so the only "constant" lights are what you have selected; water or crushed or cubed). This is a great fridge and the cost was reasonable.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by hs2008 Average but Acceptable for Needs
I preferred the textured finish rather than the gloss looking finish so I went with the lower GE model and I can tell. It suits our needs well, but the ice box is hard to access when full (you have to pull out the box instead of being able to reach into a trap door kinda thing and pulling out the drawer is loud). The water doesn't come out very fast and seems cheaper than the next model up. My in-laws bought the model up and paid more but you can tell there is a difference in quality (even though the size difference is negligible in my eyes). I love the cheese drawer. The bottom drawer is half the size of the top drawer which was unexpected. Overall, the fridge does its job and keeps everything cold. It does make the popcorn noise that people talked about, but it is necessary for the fridge.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by raba Love GE appliances
Love GE appliances! I have replaced every appliance in my home to GE. They are just made to last longer. This is a basic refrigerator. Not many bells and whistles, but it has everything you need at a good price. I love the temperature reading on the water/ice dispenser screen. Tons of space compared to my last wide by side refrigerator by maytag. Yes, it's noisy, but it doesn't keep us up at night like some other reviews stated.
The GE delivery men were on time, set it up fast, and very friendly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mecur Love This Fridge
This fridge is beautiful. It looks great in my kitchen! I love that it has one place where the ice or water comes out and not one for water and one for ice. My old fridge had two places and when you put a big glass under, you would hit both. This is much better. The freezer part is bigger than my old Frigidaire side by side. Love that. Love the way the shelves are easy to adjust. The shelves are also high quality. The temperature gauge on the outside is fabulous and shows that the temperature is exactly as it should be. What a cool function. The whole fridge is made really well and is deluxe. This is my favorite all time fridge.
