This filter reduces the hassle of having to go out and buy new filters for your refrigerator every 6 months. This one will last five years.
My current refrigerator did not have a water filter for the ice maker/water dispenser, so I had added a filter to the back of the refrigerator. Now with this new filter, I can change once and have it last five years and save money and time on future replacements.
This particular filter will fit ANY water appliance as long as you connect it on the external water supply line. I had 2 braided stainless steel water lines with 1/4" connectors on the ends. So I just unscrewed the old filter, and screwed on the new filter.
It also allows you to install the filter using 1/4" plastic water tubing. Remove the adapters and insert the tubing.
Overall, good directions in the package AND on the filter. The filter is also marked with "IN" and "OUT" although it was hard to read.
Be sure to write the date on your filter. There was no place to do this, so I just wrote it on the side.
Also, I had to use some wire to hang my filter from the back of the fridge; it does not come with any mounting bracket.
While the filter says it will last five years, it did not indicate its capacity in gallons. Some filters of this type will have a rating of 20,000 gallons; I am not sure about this one. A rating is important because the filter will really only last for a certain amount of usage which on average will be five years.
Save yourself some cash; install this five year filter.

I ordered the 12" hose with the product and the install took 3 min. I purged the system into my trash can for almost 15 min (instructions recommened 10). I just had my first glass of bottled water over ice and did not feel sick. This product is a must have if you use ice and do not have a built in filter. I hot glued it to the back of the fridge for ease.

Compact size. Only wish it had some kind of mount to attach it to the wall

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cabbycap Easy Installation and Cheaper Alternative
This is a cheaper alternative than replacing the GE filter (Model: MWF) located in the refrigerator cabinet. (The refrigerator came with a "cap" to replace the OEM filter when not used.) After Installing the 1/4-inch water supply, the valve was opened to flush the filter and purge air. Once flushed the outlet water was connected and the filter was simply mounted on a band clamp using an existing screw on the back of the refrigerator. Total installation time took roughly three minutes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dogwalker The answer to overpriced refrigerator water filters
Would you rather pay $40+ per year for inside the fridge filters or only $30 per 5 years for an inline filter behind the fridge or in the sink cabinet? This is a no-brainer. The filter and connectors appear to be top quality. Installation on 1/4" OD water line is a breeze. Now whenever the fridge flashes REPLACE FILTER I just give it the raspberries.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Troy Better than most.
Tried some of the equivalent competitors and had to bring them back more than once because they leaked right out of the box. Installed this one in less than 10 minutes and has worked great and no leaks.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by John Failed after less than a week
So I bought this jewel last week from my local home depot because they didn't have the type I normally get. It was very easy to install and ran for 4 days before developing a leak at the seam. I'm scrambling to find the receipt so I can return the item tomorrow morning. I will stick with the one piece models that I've used before.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by tom can't believe you are to flush for 15 min before installation
I did not read the "Performance Data Sheet" before installation and just installed it. I can not believe that it says to flush the filter 15 Minutes before installing...15 minutes. After 2 days, I still have trash in my ice. So I will have to go back to the store and buy parts to rig up an outside connection to accomplish.
