This refrigerator is adequate. It looks nice, but scratches easily. It also makes ice really fast - which is great, but if you don't watch it, it will start to overflow. I have to empty the ice maker once a week because I don't use it often enough. I haven't had any major issues with the refrigerator though. That is, generally it functions just fine. I haven't had to call anyone for a repair. Also, I use the freezer a lot. When I make meals, I make a large amount and freeze extra individual portions for later. My freezer is always full and I'm constantly moving things around to figure out how to make things fit. However, I'm not a fan of the freezer on the bottom either. Although there is extra space, you have to dig for things that are on the bottom and cannot easily see what you have. Therefore, I still prefer the side by side for now. I may just need a wider one. I will stick with GE though as I have found their appliances to be of the best quality among all brands.
