Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit for what I needed The fridge had to fit into a 29.5 inch space. I wanted something with a ice maker. I really wanted the freezer on the bottom so this refrigerator was perfect. I like the black, it doesn't show dings/dents. The spill catcher shelves are great, makes clean up easier and the bottom of my fridge doesn't get messy (plus my wife really appreciates not finding hidden messes at the bottom of the fridge).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attractive; Well-Designed Space I was replacing an older model with the freezer on the top and wanted a bottom freezer for my new unit. I was surprised at not finding many of these units to actually look at in the stores (there seem to be more French-door models than anything else) and, with my fingers crossed, I ordered this through Home Depot online. I am SO happy with it! I love the design and having my produce easily accessible (no more bending over)! The space inside both the refrigerator and freezer sections works well for me. The unit is attractive (I purchased it in black) and although I notice the sound it is not bothersome. I'm looking forward to the energy savings and hope to have this unit for years to come!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice basic "no frills" refrigerator. I've never had a freezer on the bottom model and I definitely love this style. My repair person said not to purchase a model with a lot of bells and whistles because it just means more can go wrong. I followed his advice and so far am pleased with this model. It is quiet when the door is closed, a little louder with it open. It wipes up very easily both inside and out. The drawers are a little flimsy and have to be opened and closed carefully. Also, the temperature gauge is located in an incovenient spot, right in the middle at the top so you can only put taller items on the sides. Overall, the capacity works for our family of five.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Top refrigerator can't be beat Oh my gosh, I can't say enough about this fridge. For years I have complained about having to bend over to see what was in there. The years have taken a toll on my back so it was a situation that went from annoying to painful. I love that the fridge is on top and everything is at eye level and that I can fit all the large drink containers...soda, milk, juice etc on the door! Because I don't have to search for anything I'm in and out in a flash, which I would consider is a power saving in itself. Would highly recommend this particular model to a small family! It most certainly serves its purpose for the 4 of us :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the ice maker We purchased 18cft so the freezer is on the small side BUT, we have another fridge and freezer so it works for us. For the money ( under 900.00) I feel it is great. We got black so no fingerprints. I would recommend. The top has lot of room in fridge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted in a refrigerator. Love the bottom freezer, refrigeration compartment at eye level. Like cube maker, first I,ve had, didn't,t think I wanted one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator is everything I wanted! This Refrigerator is perfect! 9 times out of 10 you are reaching into your refrigerator than in the freezer-- So this product makes it so much easier to and convinient. The freezer space is the same size as the regular top freezers but you do have to bend down, which makes bending down less since I use the refrigerator more so than the freezer. The ice maker isn't noisy at all. We have the cool setting on 4 and everything is perfect. LOVE this Refrigerator for the great value!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Convient For Me I hve a very bad back and couldn`t bend down for everything in the old fridge. This top main compartment and the bottom freezer are just right for me. I go into the fridge section many times a day, while I go into the freezer section two or three times. This is workng out fine for me. The looks are very up to date, modern and attractive. The compartments are all I need and are moveable so I can configure many arrangements according to my needs, such as tall bottles or pitchers. I like the separate meat compartment and the humidity controlled fruit and vegetable drawers. Even the door is changable as to compartments. I like the spillproof glass shelves as well and they are so attractive. The freezer is roomy enough for me and I like the doore shelf. Keeps ice drem just right.
