Korean electric has become so ever popular these few years. For their looks, and usability. A couple years ago we were looking for a counter depth fridge. We love samsung products, but back then they didn't have anything with counter depth. LG become our 2nd choice. We purchased it the year Obama was inaugurated. It's been how many years? It's still working fine, with no noise whatsoever. We set the non-freezer part a bit cold so things can be kept much longer. There's a vegetable drawer with separate temperature control, so your veggie don't have to freeze to death. We have a device that can check the purity of water. Ice/ water that comes out from this fridge is very clean, and way above standard for drinking. We do have to change its filter once every year i guess. My hubby does all that work. Anyway, the veggie drawer's hook broke. Didn't affect much, but since it was broken when it was brand new, we felt like we have to complain. We were immediately sent a replacement. Their customer service is very easy to deal with.
