Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet & Solid I Love this fridge! We are a family of five and it suits us well. It looks nice, hides fingerprints well with its textured design And best of all it is really quiet! Our old fridge was so loud You couldn't hear the tv over it! I highly recommend it to anyone who is not looking for an enormous fridge. Simple, solid, nice looking, does the job well :) 3/4/13
