Love the way this fridge looks in my kitchen. It has all the room I need but fits nicely in the available space. About the only downside is some noise. When the ice drops, you know it, and when you put new groceries in the fridge the ramp up in cooling produces noticeable sound. Not a big deal, which is why it got 4 stars vs. 5.

The fridge is fine. I am sure it's great with efficiency.
I ordered this online without seeing "black ice" with only understanding it "looks like a smartphone". It only took me about a month to get one delivered and then it had the wrong handles and didn't look like a smartphone case. Another month and I finally got a replacement, same black with correct handles.
I had pictured it to be this cool black surface with a gloss thick clear coat, like a glass pane on it to match my double oven doors. It's not. It's a somewhat mid gloss that isn't highly reflective and does not offer any depth in the paint. Overrated to call it a new color if you ask me. The handles are nice Stainless but not really worth the added price over the similar unit in the lineup.
On top of that, I am not impressed that the display panel does not offer an option to keep the display on... or the noise the icemaker makes... or the mess it makes with ice cubes if you don't get your glass right up to the dispenser.
I would keep looking.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ruraltexan Not for people who like good ice cubes.
My primary dislike of this refrigerator is the ice maker. Not only is the ice maker noisy, the cubes very small and broken (not talking about the crushed mode) but the dispenser is a bad design. The dispenser pad is 5.5 " L, but only the very top activates the dispenser. Unless you hold your glass up to the top and tilt it towards the refrigerator you will not get ice. Holding the glass in a tilted manor helps prevent ice cubes and chips from going all over the floor. The cubes (small semi-circles 1.7" L, .5" W and .5" high) being small results in them melting faster that real cubes.

I've only had this fridge for a week, but we love it so much I had to write a review.
It is roomy. We love the features it has. It's nice that there is a deli drawer besides the two for vegtables. The door storage is great too.
The room is the freezer is exceptional, especially since the ice dispenser is on the door.
The water tastes great, which surprised me since the water here in AZ is horrible.
The fridge is very quiet when running. You do hear the ice drop into the container, but we don't find that bothersome.
And to top all this off, it looks fabulous! I was worried that the Black Ice finish would show fingerprints, but they hardly show. The stainless handles are a nice touch.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Love this refrigerator.
After careful research, I chose this particular refrigerator to replace my 20 year old Kitchen Aid fridge which finally died. I had few choices because this new fridge could not be any wider than the old fridge it replaced. I love the design of this fridge, the way it looks inside. I love the way it makes crushed ice. I also love the mirror-like black front-side. The freezer holds less than the previous fridge, but we have a garage freezer, so no problem. The only complaint is that it is difficult to store or take out milk and juice containers from the top shelf because the fridge ceiling light protrudes toward the front of the top shelf.
Finally, my electricity bill dropped about $40/month because it is so energy efficient.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Frenchfry929 LOVE this Fridge!!!
We have had this refrigerator for about 4 months now, and we absolutely love it!! Yes, the ice maker is loud when it drops the ice into the bin, but you get used to it! It's not the end of the world people! We don't even hear it anymore. It looks great in our kitchen with our other appliances. It is very roomy too! The stainless steel handles make it look so modern and sleek. We will buy Whirlpool again!

The fridge is working just fine since I had it installed a few weeks ago. Like other people have commented, however, it could use another freezer shelf. I like the icemaker in the door for easy reach-in access to ice when you don't want to fill a glass through the door. Has good lighting inside so you can see what you have where.

I love almost everything about this refrigerator. It's roomy and has enough shelving. I love the color and stainless handles. The only bad thing is that it isn't on rollers, so you can't pull it out unless you are very strong. This could have been a deal breaker if I knew this ahead of time.
