Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by madvalley Filter's okay, design is not.
The filter gets 2-stars because it filters the water and the specs on the packaging are good. The problem with the filter is the design - slick plastic case means you can't get a grip on it to install. The plastic tab on the bottom to address that problem is 1) too small to get enough torque on (unless maybe you used pliers) and 2) keeps you from writing the replace date where you could actually see it. They do give you a very tiny stick on calendar that's nearly impossible to see (on my fridge anyway) when it's stuck on the side of the filter. And - to top it all off - for a 2-pack of filters, they only give you one calendar.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by headhunter Great value
After reading some of the other reviews about leaking I was a little skeptical, however these filters fit just fine and no leakage. A tremendous savings over the name brand replacement. To replace the filter is fairly simple with just a twist to remove the old filter and insert and twist the new filter back into place. I ran three gallons of water through the filter to make sure everything was clean, no air pockets in the line or charcoal residue etc, although the water cleared after about a half gallon. Filter states it good for six months or 300 gallons. I didn't notice any taste in quality over the OEM filter that came with the refrigerator. Highly recommend these filters for cost savings alone.

I know water quality will vary the life of a filter, but these filters initially we thought would be awesome. A friend told us he was disappointed with HDX filters, but two for the price of one Maytag seemed awesome.
In the beginning it seemed they worked but after just a few days, I noticed a strong Florida taste. Then by a coupke weeks we replaced it with the second one to just turn around and replace again in a few weeks. The Maytag name brand lasted us a few months. So this was not saving us money. They don't filter enough and the package seemed to imply they don't filter as much, just chlorine.
I do not recommend this product. Back to name brand or locating a comparable off brand.

We use our Refrigerator water for EVERYTHING we drink from coffee and tea, to plain ole water,,,and this cartridge is a MUST have in our home! We simply would not use our water without it. I love how easy it is to install, and how much we love the taste of the water when we use a filtration system.
We certainly love that, we save money too, over buying a "Maytag" filter! They are expensive and it adds up over time! By using this HDX brand, I know that we are still getting a great filter all while saving some money! Its a Win Win!!
Just be careful when you install it into the slot for the first time, to place a larger pitcher or glass under the dispenser, because it will sputter quite a bit until the pressure regulates into the filter!!!

I have never been able to drink the water right from the tap here in Florida, to me it has a certain smell and after taste. I use the refrigerator water dispenser for just about everything i cook from meals to coffee even boiling items. This filter is a necessity for me. Very easy to install and costs much less than the original maytag brand. I feel confident of its effectiveness and plan to make this brand my new favorite. Thank you for making this more affordable filter!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by filterman it is adequate
the filters that I purchased were equal to if not better than the original equipment parts. They (the filter two pack) were not available on the stores shelf, however the salesperson in appliance ordered them for me on the store computer. The process was painless since she was quite familiar with the ordering process and the articles arrived in promp fashion a couple days later. Thank you
