I like the layout of the interior, and I like the water/ice function in the door.
As I've seen in other reviews, you can see some minimal amounts of insulation on the top side of door panels, but only if you're taller than the door.
I've had this model for ~ 2 months. If the water sits in system for extended time (say overnight), the water served in door will have a plastic taste to it. The initial instructions of running a few gallons of water through system did not eliminate the plastic taste. It seems to be getting slowly better with time, but expect it to take a while. I normally run a glass or two of water and dump it out, then taste is normal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by texgal50 So far so good with our refrigerator
We have had our refrigerator for just about a month. We are very happy with the look of it in black, had to really hunt for a textured door one, finally found this GE. Not sure why people seem to really like the smooth fronts, they scratch so easily & show prints. This GE is quite nice looking, doesn't look cheap like some other brands we've seen. Our new GE is about 22 cu ft, so a little small but we were dictated by the size of our opening. People always complain about the ice spitting out everywhere, but you need to hold the glass up to the opening, no problem then. It is pretty quiet running, very pleased. Hopefully this new one will last a good while.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by pcos OK for the price but cheep design
I bought this sight unseen. It is a small unit so anybody over 6' tall or otherwise looking at it from above will see the top of the doors....obviously. What I did not know is this is also where the sheet metal seems of the door meet, and GE chose not to cover the seams with trim. This GE design decision leaves white door insulation visible between the seams. I thought it was a manufacturing error, but GE customer care could not give me a definitive answer (think talking to health insurance company). GE’s only answer was to return it.
An astetic problem at worse, but now you know to look at the top of the doors. GE uses the same design for larger units.

The refrigerator is fine. It keeps things cold without much effort. I am not fond of the pebbled finish or the space-consuming ice dispenser, but I knew what I was getting.
My only complaint is the noise. When the compressor starts it produces a high pitched whine like a dog whistle. It goes right through you. I had a GE tech come and look at it and he said, "Get used to it. All GE's are like that." Yuck! I have ordered some sound proofing material to put in the compressor cavity. Maybe that will fix it. If not, I'll give it to Goodwill.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MR2Pilot Space limited
Our kitchen has limited space for the refrigerator width. This model replaced a 25 year old GE model of the same physical size and layout (different color). The older unit is still operating but needed some work, door seals and a good cleaning, so it is now used in a different location in the house. This new unit is very quiet and has a little more room inside versus the older one, it's 1 inch deeper and uses modern insulation, which allows thinner walls. If the new unit runs for 25 years like the older one, I'll be very pleased.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sanda Odd-sized Overpriced Ill-Finished - but it works
Odd sized replacement that would fit and was available (other brands back-ordered). Identical with almost no innovation in 10+ years to the dying GE model it replaced!
Works, is quieter than the 10-year old replaced model, but has worse finish on the doors, hinges, shelves, overall alignments - you name it.
Disappointed at the absolute lack of innovation or improvement, the ridiculously high price (larger fridges are cheaper because there are more choices/competitors; only 3 available in this odd size, only this GE for immediate delivery!)
I wish I could redo the kitchen and get a cheaper, larger, different fridge instead!
The only saving graces - quiet, cold, stays on very little (the first utility bill should confirm energy savings) and has a working ice maker (the old GE fridge's ice maker broke 5+ years ago). If this sounds like a reach to say something nice, it is!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dogs Great fridge for the space
I was happy to find this fridge online since I needed a slightly smaller one that would fit in my kitchen. Ice maker works well. Nice stainless steel finish.

I have enjoyed my new refrigerator. It has lights on all my features and I love my crushed ice. I use the light for a night light and I can monitor my temperature on both the freezer and refrigerator.
I love the textured finish because it doesn't show finger prints.
