26.3 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator in Slate is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 318.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellect product so far Have only had this refrigerator for 2 weeks, but so far it has been excellent. Very quiet refrigerator except when the ice container is low and then drops ice...sort of loud, but since it has filled up it is not very noticable. Plenty of storage space in the main section. The meat/produce bins are nice as well as the deli section. The doors also have plenty of storage, but one has to manage where they place items in them, especially items used every day. One work around if possible is not to put all the trays in the doors that way you will have room to remove items easier. The door trays are very sturdy and thick compared to some of the door trays in other refrigerators we looked at. We opted to get this refrigerator without an in-door ice/water maker as many people we talked to that have refrigerators with in-door ice/water makers, stated that they have had multiple issues with them . The freezer has plenty of room and the ice maker makes plenty of ice and there is ample room in the freezer. One word of advice, if you have children you may want to think twice about getting the stainless steel. We bought the SS and it looks very nice but does leave ALOT fingerprints. Initally we were going to get this in slate, but after finding a paint sample that matched the slate and taking it home, it did not go with our cabinet colors.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice fridge but VERY LOUD!! The fridge is actually quite nice from how it looked in the kitchen to the lighting and space inside the fridge. It only had one flaw ... the compressor is VERY LOUD!! The G.E. tech was out three times to try to fix it and couldn't. G.E. even engineered some sort of noise reducer for this model and was installed and made no difference. If you are sensitive to noise or have a kitchen attached to your family room you might want to avoid this model. We could even hear it over the television at moderate volume. Home Depot is being great and allowing us to pick another make/model.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from loving it so far Our first French door, bottom-freezer fridge. Have had it about a month, loving it so far. Capacity: The huge jump in cu. ft. from our previous traditional top-freezer is undoubtedly making me very happy. Both door bins contain all the bottles transferred from the old fridge door holder, and then some (we don't put milk jugs at the door, though). Other compartments work great, though it'll be nice to have 2 slider shelves instead of just 1. But then again, the fridge itself holds all the stuff we ever need to put into the fridge, with space to spare. Freezer pics from manufacturer don't quite do it justice -- it's not huge (though huger than the old one), but is bigger than the pics show. Enjoy the flip-out shelf at the door too (see attachment), extra storage for littler things. Mechanics: There is some background noise (it's a machine after all), but noticeable only when it's very quiet in the house; generally doesn't bother us at all. Once in a while I'd hear louder humming that comes and goes -- hope it won't become an issue down the road! Water line not yet installed so can't comment on that. Found freezer bins a little frosty at times, even though the door was closed entirely -- will continue to play with the temperature settings and see how that goes. Currently set at recommended temps. Looks/Exterior: Got the slate color, did not regret it -- so far, the only fingerprints left are on the handles, which makes a much quicker wipe-down than the whole front. All 3 sides of the fridge are magnetic (except for the handles), that means pictures, cards, and notes can all go back! Minor complaint on packaging: As another reviewer has mentioned, the protective plastic is drilled into the handles and such, leaving remnants around once the majority of the plastic is ripped out. Just have to spend extra time cleaning that up. Other than that, happy customers thus far!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from disappointed at the quality and service When this fridge works, it works nicely. However mine failed on its week 5. The fridge temperature went up to 68 F. Called the GE support, got an appointment for 3 days later. When the technician finally came to check, he found the broken fan. I thought it was an easy fix -- just replace it. No, he did not have the part. I'm in Houston, there is no stored parts in Houston area, he also checked with all the local technicians, no one has the fan. The tech told me he had to order, and we had to wait for a week for the fan to arrive. Now we will go 2 weeks without fridge. This is my first experience with GE product, and will be the last one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice! We have only had the refridgerator a week but so far outstanding. The slate color is fantastic and I think GE has a hit with it. I have seen complaints about the noise level, so far have not experience that...also the film in the door handle area is easy to remove with a hex screw driver, its takes about 15 seconds to unscrew the door handle and remove the film...our delivery guy did it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to clean surface Easy to clean, smudge free surface and still blends well with other stainless steel appliances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this 'fridge again! I LOVE my new refrigerator. Initially I looked at it only because it had the freezer on the bottom, but I quickly liked the size and layoutt. The adjustable shelving is generous and easy to move. It looks great and works efficiently. It's nice and quiet as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I did a lot of research on refrigerators and read many, many reviews before settling on this make and model. My house is a summer house and seasonal rental so I opted not to get the front water/ice dispenser to cut down on things that can go wrong. The refrigerator is large sized, and a nice internal layout. I chose the split doors, bottom freezer as that is what I have at my other house and wonder why people continue to chose top freezer models. This thing looks and works perfectly. I also got a great deal from Home Depot. The only negative with the stainless steel model is the handles always looks smudged. They do clean up nice with one of those stainless steel wipe clothes but be prepared to have smudged handles on it. This is especially true for me with small kids.
