Great size freezer for a little fridge
I needed a narrow fridge to fit in my apartment, but was disappointed about the size of the freezers on every small fridge except this one. I do a lot of meal prep, so I need a decent freezer. This little fridge has the perfect balance between fridge and freezer space. I've had it about 8 months now, and can't fault it.

Good but could be better
Here is what I like about my new fridge -
* Temperature controls etc are at the front of the fridge when you open the door. Instead of crammed at the back behind your food. Digital config! Nice. :)
* Its our backup/storage fridge. Wife and I couldn't decide on freezer or fridge for a backup. This one had the largest freezer to fridge ratio on the market. Atleast for small fridges after checking 3 suppliers. Suited out needs/
* Shelving is very sturdy. Our former fridge it was very flimsy.
* Beeps if you keep it open. Nice.
* Good brand
What could be better...* Your kinda limited in shelving configuration. You get 3 shelves with 4 places to put them. LG - Why not allow people to have more config and put the shelves in more spaces. As a backup fridge would be awesome to fit in stuff when I want to make bulk vegetable soups etc. Make room for a big pot. I can't do it but need to remove a shelf due to lack of configuration. If I could configure the shelves more it would be the ultimate storage fridge. * Egg holders don't clip into the side. Kinda an after thought. why would you use this loose thing instead of an egg carton. * Ventilation unit at the top of the fridge - means you can't/shouldn't really keep stuff on the top of your shelf. Pain for us as its in our laundry. We like to keep stock on top of our fridge. Can't do that now.
Great replacement for my 15 year old fridge
Only had this fridge a week but I’m very happy with it. I bought it after reading very good reviews on Product Review.
Plenty of space for a couple or small family. Keeps food so much cooler and fresher than my old fridge.
Very quiet, light and easy to move.
Would highly recommend it.
Makes a good first impression
My relatively old 420l Westinghouse suddenly started tripping circuit breakers and I thought that I might downsize. I had a brief look at this model at a retailer and I had it home working within a day. So there wasn't a lot of research done, and I didn't look at alternatives.
So here are the first impressions:
1. It cost roughly the same as my old Westinghouse and like a lot of modern white goods, the fridge is certainly lighter and feels less durable. The shelves are glass like the old fridge but the construction relies more on plastic, whi...ch is not unexpected. The reality is this fridge is one of the cheaper fridges when you consider the fridge universe and while the Westinghouse was middle of the market 15 years ago at $800, there are a lot of more expensive fridges around, with a lot more bells and whistles. Generally speaking, it looks ok. 2. Added extras. If you like your ice or eggs, this fridge is decidedly primitive. I would argue that LG kept it that way on purpose to retain a selling point for the more expensive fridges. An 8 egg holder is a curious thing. The ice tray seems an afterthought in an area at the top of the freezer. I'm sure they could have done better. 3. Relative size of freezer. I wanted a bigger freezer in a smaller fridge and surprisingly, I got it. The 420l Westinghouse was noticeably smaller. If you dont use freezers much, then look elsewhere.
Purchased in April 2019 for $670.00.

Vegetables drawer useless
I like this fridge and had the previous model for 15 years trouble free.
I don’t like having to remove the vegetables drawer completely to remove lid. It is frustrating. I contacted LG to see if I had installed incorrectly without any joy they were useless.
Fridge is quite and functional so far but the vegetable drawer is a problem.
Unfortunately I bought online so I suppose it is my bad.
Great at keeping your food fresh!
Fridge has been the best one I have ever had... It lets you set the fridge compartment to 1c unlike most fridges that are preset to 4c, the result is that I have been keeping milk longer and it stays fresh, the fruit and veg all seem to do a lot better at 1c. The other thing you will notice is the doors and walls are a lot thicker and full of insulation so once its to temperature it really efficient to run. Only thing I would change is the Door alarm is totally useless as I like to look at the food and decide but I run out of time..
Please LG in the future at least have the option to shut door alarm off, other then that great job.
Great price, very low power consumption
This is an extremely energy efficient fridge, rated at using only 280kwh per year. The price and features are incredibly good value compared to other similar products. The door can be adjusted to left or right opening. Perfect for use on a stand-alone solar power system, or anyone who is energy conscious.
Highly efficient, elegant.
Bought this fridge after much researching. It was the most energy efficient one we could find, and it certainly has proved to be that. Amazingly, despite its low energy use, it keeps everything at a constant perfect temperature. Vegetables have LONG lives in this fridge! I love the layout, too. The freezer being on the bottom, being the least used compartment in my household, has proven to be very ergonomic and convenient. A very well designed fridge, I think: this is also evident in the lack of prominent handles (they’re sunk into the side, no...t the front) which makes the whole thing very sleek. My favourite feature is the Eco Friendly mode which we turn on when we go on vacation - keeps the food that you leave in there at a safe temperature, but uses even less power. Least favorite is probably the beeping that it emits when you leave the door open too long. Makes loading groceries in a little annoying sometimes. Otherwise, great fridge for sure.

Very quite fridge
It's a fantastic fridge for 2-3 people. It's very quiet, easy to clean and keep food fresh, 5 stars energy. it's roomy enough and Freezer is also big enough for a lot of meats, ice creams. If you have a small family I would highly recommend this one and it looks good. It looks modern and does not occupy much space.
Cheers to our new fridge!
This replaced my smaller 10yr old whirlpool about 6months ago. It went great for the first week, noticibly cooler drinks in the door then overnight it became room temperature in both fridge and freezer but the light was on and the motor definitely still working. LG customer service quickly sent a service agent who found a refrigerant leak and fixed it under warranty as a manufacturing fault. It has been running like a Dream since!
It fits in a slim space in our kitchen.
It makes slightly more noise than the whirlpool, occasional gurgling so...
Happy with this fridge
I bought this fridge when my 18 year old Westinghouse decided to call it a day. It is the perfect size for a one person household. I have no complaints about its performance so far. It seems to be quiet in its operation and is easy to clean. The temperature control is good in both the fridge and freezer.
A good fridge for 2-3 people
It's a fantastic fridge for 2-3 people. It's very quiet, easy to clean and keep food fresh. it's roomy enough and can hold 4 -5 cartons of milk. Freezer is also big enough for a lot of meats, icecreams. If you have a small family I would highly recommend this one and it looks good. Because it's slim and will fit in small homes too.

Good value - annoying door alarm is only complaint.
Love the layout of the fridge (big freezer section, almost a half half). Its efficient and does what its meant to. The alarm for when you've left the door open too long can be VERY annoying when you're trying to figure out what to cook!!! Pretty small complaint overall - good value for the price.
Super Efficient Fridge
We have a tiny fridge alcove due to a badly designed kitchen and this fridge was able to squeeze right in. I like its design with the freezer on the bottom as it means the food part is at a better height. Its so efficient! We put it on the electricity meter and it drew almost no power when running. The interior has well though out adjustable shelves and works very well. I like this fridge!
Very happy with this appliance, maintains a steady temperature. We have the freezer on the coolest setting and it's amazing how quickly it freezes items. Lots of room in both compartments and easy to remove the shelves for cleaning, it's not a loud appliance, very happy with the overall performance
LG's Low Running Cost Fridge
I purchased one of these recently , it knocked off at least $100 dollars from my electricity bill.
It doesn't hold a great deal and would not suit a family of 3-4 but it would suit a couple in a unit, for those like me that now shop regularly it's really good and economical since I now consume food rather than store my groceries for long periods
The unit has an eco setting and remote diagnostics ability , the freezer on the bottom is very good and has 3 good size compartments , the top half is adequate and easy to see and reach everything. and the vege compartment is sufficient for about 1 weeks food , I give it an 8/10
