This refrigerator has a very good and accurate temperature management system which has been noted by a number of customers which is a really important advantage.
Another advantage of this unit is being Energy Star compliant it uses much less energy than one would expect and is environmentally friendly as well.
One advantage is the easy accessible Water Filter, which is located inside the fridge, at the top right of the unit, which makes it very easy and convenient to change.
The Water Dispenser is just inside the door on the left making it very convenient.
There are two Humidity Control Crispers which have individual settings. Underneath the crispers there is a Full Width Shelf, with a clear window which enables you to look into it easily.
All the shelves in the door are fully adjustable, and some of them have a durable rubber-plastic liner , which can be removed and washed.
The main disadvantage of this model is the bottom mount freezer, which is a pull-out drawer system – When full this drawer can get pretty heavy and difficult at times.
Although there are two baskets in the freezer – they actually take up quite a bit of usable space which reduced the usable capacity of the freezer. Some customers have discovered a few irritating noises.
The interior water filter requires two hands to properly dispense the water which is a real nuisance.
