  • 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.
