Summary: We went with a Whirlpool fridge since our last one was virtually trouble-free for over 15 years. This side-by-side was similar to our previous one with a few improvements, but minus the quality. Ours had a break in the internal water line after about 6 months of use. Fixed under warranty, but I can see the same failure coming back as it appears to be a design flaw. Not an easy DIY fix, either. There are some design issues too.
Summary: We've had the Whirlpool® 30 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator for about 2 months. We love the capacity of the refrigerator / freezer and the side-by-side design. This unit replaced a relatively new French-door design, which we did not like all: doors often didn't close well and searching for frozen food within the draw was annoying. The 30 cu. ft side-by-side has all the storage capacity we need with the elegant simplicity of the side-by-side design.
Pros: Convenient Features, Design, Easy to use, Performance, Style
Summary: I have only had this refrigerator for two weeks but I love the space, LED lighting, and the way it is set up. There is lot of space in the doors for storage and the shelves have a lot of space between them. I replaced my GE French Door because I never really liked the layout and space was very limited. When I swapped out the food in my full GE refrigerator to this one it was only half full!!
Pros: Design, Ease of Use, Energy efficiency, Features
Space is Awesome but Quality is Below Average at Best

Summary: Folks the frig is beautiful. It looks the part and is spacious but the quality is NOT there. It takes 3 full days to fill one bin of ice. The ice maker is loud and will scare you in the middle of the night. The water and ice dispensers are very loud and sounds cheap and fluttery. Before buying this product consider getting the equivalent Samsung. Quality trumps gadgets and looks.
Summary: I have had this refrigerator a week now and happy overall with it: Likes: * Plenty of storage capacity * Handle design feels great in your hand, no seams in the handle like the GE. * LED lighting inside, and gradually brightens after door is opened * Stainless Steel - exterior seems durable Dislikes * Compressor has a buzzy noise quality to it that I don't care for. It's overall quieter than my old frig but it still bothers me somewhat.
