Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer88 Great replacement, fits great.
I've always bought GE replacements for my Monogram fridge, but saw this from HDX and decided to give it a try. The filter came in a single pack (I usually by 3-packs at a time) in a clear clam-shell so I could see that it looked the same as my GE filter. After removing the old filter, this one twisted in just like the original part, with no leaks. After going through the normal process of bleeding out the air, I found that the pressure and flow were good, again just like the original. The water taste was fine, I didn't notice any difference. If it continues to perform well, I'll likely be switching to these in the future.
For this review, there is an energy efficiency rating which I'm not sure why. So I gave it average.

This filter makes the water taste like fresh spring water!
You have to tug really hard to pull it out and then need to make sure it is firmly pushed in and that the two rubber o rings are secured in place as well.
Once you have it firmly in place, run several glasses of water through to clean out the line. Also make sure you have done this before you create any ice.

This HDX filter for your GE refrigerator is about half the cost of the genuine GE filter. I've used it for two months and the water taste is about the same as the GE filter. I do not notice any difference in water quality between the two filters (and I would consider myself to be particular about water quality).
I do notice that the new GE filters push water through more quickly so the water comes out of the dispenser with more force (at least initially). A new HDX filter had the same water force as a GE filter that is two months old. Not a big deal unless you are filling a pitcher or two.

The filter arrive well packaged with good instructions. It was very easy to to install the HDX on our GE Profile fridge. I followed the instructions and it did not leak a drop. I then flushed the air and any carbon fines from the tank by dispensing water as instructed. It now has the same flow, taste and clarity that my GE filters have given me. I like the design of the HDX better because it is shorter than the GE filter. As you can see in the pictures the GE is a tight fit in the Profile unit we have because of the glass shelf. The lower profile HDX gave me more room for installation.

First off, it is difficult to thoroughly rate a water filter without the benefit of having the filtered water analyzed so I will just have to assume that the filter is removing the stuff it is supposed to. I purchased this filter for my GE refrigerator's water dispenser. I have been using the GE brand which cost about $10 more so this saves a little money. The only downside is that this filter requires me to run about 1-2 gallons of water through it to clear up the charcoal particles that cloud the water and I do not recall having to do that with the GE, but I may be wrong. But, the water clears up and tastes clean so assuming this HDX brand is doing the same job, I will continue to use it instead of the more expensive GE brand filter.

We bought this and started to notice grey and black specks- thru the entire 6 months. We thought we had mold, then I looked it up afraid we were going to need a fridge. Tested our fridge without a filter and low and behold the flecks went away!! I called number listed and to get a refund, I have to ship filter back with a receipt and then they will test it!!!! I told them it wasn't worth my time to find the receipt and go to post office and hope they " decide" to give me a refund. In stead I will never buy their product and write a bad review. And make sure to tell my co workers, family and friends. Back to buying the GE FILTER

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BriBri Cheap, good quality replacement filter
I was looking for a cheaper alternative to the expensive GE brand replacement water filters for my refrigerator and this is a good choice. It replaced my GE MWF style filter. It was easy to install and provides good flow of water to the refrigerator water spout. The only problem I encountered was that when I removed the old filter, there was an attachment that was removed also that I originally threw away with the old filter, but quickly realized that the new filter could not be installed without the attachment. The instructions do not mention anything about the attachment, but it easily came off the old filter and attached to the new filter and no other problems with installation. Very simple.

Works very well and is a much better value than GE's original filter. Easy enough to install without problems but one small glitch to mention. I just bought my second unit of this filter, so this replacement was the first time I have removed and replaced the HDX brand. Be aware that the o-ring of the filter being removed can possibly remain on the head and cause problems with the new filter. I put the new one in place without any real problem but water pressure was low at the dispenser. I followed directions and backed it off and twisted again, and this time I had a leak. Took it off completely and found there were two O-rings. I know to look for this next time.
