Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by harmar Looks Fabulous
First of all the fridge looks fabulous. Since it is shallow it sits flush with our cabinets and just comes out far enough for the doors to open. We have had lots of compliments.
It is not a large fridge. We are a family of 2 so it is fine and would probably be okay for a max of 4 people. You need another fridge if you have a larger family. Also the crispers are small so if you eat a lot of vegetables it does not have a lot of room.
Shelving is good; inside lighting is bright; very quiet. Also, I have no problems with the freezer. I have had it about 2 months so I have had time to really get used to it.
Before I bought it I had another fridge picked out but then went to the store and the LG just shined.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by joacchim Great design, poor implementation, high price
Bought this fridge one month ago to replace our dead J...A..
- Extremely quiet. Quietest fridge I have ever owned.
- Cabinet depth for shallow openings (see other comment below)
- Lots of storage space in the upper fridge doors.
- LED lighting in upper fridge is nice and bright.
- Stated width does not allow for hinge sides of doors. If you have a 36" wide opening as I do, you cannot place the fridge all the way into the opening so that it's flush, else the french doors will bind in the opening when opened. Add 1/4" to width dimension to allow for flush install. (And mine's a tight fit despite the opening being 1/4" wider than the fridge's stated width spec of 35-3/4".)
- Freezer organization is barely adequate. One vertical divider can be used to separate meat from other stuff but the freezer drawer is so deep that things just pile up on one another, making them hard to find. Upper drawer is nice, tho'.
- Not offered in black or white, only stainless steel finish.
- Temperature display is the setpoint, not the actual temperature. I would like to know what it really is, not just what I have set it for. Nice for setting the temp but otherwise useless.
- Expensive for a smallish refrigerator. Thus my low value rating.
- Manual states you must leave 2" behind fridge for air flow, so add 2" to stated depth dimension to determine if it will fit "flush" into your space.

We purchased this from Home Depot in 2010 for $2200. We did not get the extended warranty. It's now dead on my kitchen floor only 4 years later, the repair cost estimate at about $1000, the motherboard dead and so is the compressor. We are purchasing a new fridge. Every LG appliance I've purchased looks great, works great, then dies long before its time. I won't be purchasing LG again. They are expensive and they do not last. I've had their dishwasher, their washer/dryer, and now their fridge. All are taking up space in a landfill and soon to be joined by the fridge. Hasta la Vista, LG. Don't let the door hit you on the backside on your way out the door.

I love my new frig. It's bright, has lots of room and since it's shallow depth things don't get buried like my old frig....some reviewers don't like the alarm but, with 2 kids constantly opening the frig, the alarm has come in very handy. Doesn't bother me at all. Only downside is that I had to remove one of the top shelves to make room for 1 liter bottles of seltzer. If they had designed one of the shelves to accomodate the liter and a short shelf for short items like jars, that would have been useful. But overall excellent. Also, be aware that this product is not the 'fingerprint free' stainless - make sure you buy the stainless steel cleaner product!

We really like this model. You can buy a larger model, but the counter depth looks very custom, while this model is a little smaller and more expensive than slightly larger models, it looks good. We've had models with Ice and water on the door, but have decided this takes up additional space, and always leaves the front looking messy. If buying stainless and can afford to spend more buy one that a magnet does not stick to. The cheaper stainless is harder to clean. This model is very easy to clean and resist many of the fingerprints that are unavoidable.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by OldEngineer Not very impressed
This fridge was purchased in 2010. September 2013 it failed loudly and at a bad time. The freezer had never worked well, So after the service technician looked at it (and it has to be an LG authorized tech, LG will not allow any service by others) turned out that the compressor had gone bye bye. The warranty is for ten years BUT you have to pay for the site visit, tech time and refrigerant. That was about 500, So in January the freezer quits, and the tech tells me that its probably because its enclosed in the cabinets. That, I tried to explain, is why we get counter depth units...so they are part of the kitchen. The suggestion was a 300 dollar circuit board which he thought might be overheating, Fortunately, that part of the kitchen backs up on a hallway, so I just punched a hole in the drywall, put a grate over it, and everything seems fine. My advice is to buy the extended warranty and make sure the unit is in a well ventilated place. Minor defects: doors don't always close and the alarm doesnt go off, the freezer slide jams if water freezes in the drawer rails, and internal plastic parts feel flimsy. Home Depot in Hanover PA was outstanding in their assistance on this issue.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MrsSilvernail 10 days old and loving it
LG delivery people were AWESOME. The care taken to packaging of product so all arrives safely was impressive. This was the only fridge we liked with depth small enough for our space, so we didn't look at many, but we are super happy with this. Love freezer at bottom. Seems to be as much space in fridge as in our standard size side by side. Loving the deep door storage and the many crisper drawers. The only thing that is annoying is that the door doesn't seem to close easily, so it beeps at us a lot to tell us it is ajar. But we like that it tells us. We will fix that after we finish our kitchen remodel and we make sure the fridge leans back slightly so the door is more inclined to close.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Gullible LG hum headache
Refrigerator is eight months old, and have already had the compressor and condensor fan replaced. Took ten trips to get this far and now they tell me the hum that it makes now is normal operational noise. I can't sit in my living room and read without some music to cover up the annoying frig noise. Very frustrating and the last Home Depot repairman had a bad attitude as if I was the problem. Repairmen also dented my stainless steel cladded door, awesome. I will never buy another LG product.
