Style over substance?
Matt black finish looks great and functional. Size and layout fine for 2-3 people and suits our needs although we run a second fridge/freezer in the garage.
Water tank requires refilling daily, takes up fair bit of door space and is a bit of a chore to remove, refill and re-insert. We have given up on inbuilt tank and reverted to a water jug with filter. I think a plumbed version or no water tank will be in order next time.
Bit noisier than I expected but tolerable. I've had worse. I think I got what you paid for.

A month in a loving it!
I've owned this fridge for a month now after buying it to fit into my new place. The fridge itself is smaller than my old one dimension wise, but just as big interior which was really appreciated it.
I haven't noticed any issues with noise, everything gets cold quickly and ice freezes in no time. I really like the water dispenser, it can run out quickly, but it's easy enough to keep on top of. The nozzle sometimes gets hit when you place it back in, causing water to come out, but if you take your time it's not a problem.
One of the main re...asons I bought this was for the reversible door, my old place had the kitchen on the left side and the new one has it on the right. So I'm able to have this swapped over so I'm not needing to back against a wall to get to open the fridge.

LG GB-455 Door Reversal User Guide
Previously had a LG bottom mount fridge for 18 years which was still going strong (motor wise) but a few bits had broken over many years and was also getting too small for us. Replaced with the LG-GB-W455MBL and the extra space is now perfect. Interestingly the motor noise on this new model is louder than the older one we had but its not an issue. The motor sound on this one is like a faint low pitch buzzing sound not a high pitched noise like another review. The door layout is perfect for us... 2x 3L milks fit fine inc. water dispenser and she...lf layout is good with folding shelf option. The loose 8 egg holder is a bit silly compare with our previous fully secure moulded one (a bit more effort in design and slight cost could see 3 rows by 5 eggs meaning 15 egg holders in one support tray). The water dispenser on this model is also a poor design. It is impossible to fill a suitable glass using it how it should be done without dripping water onto the floor. The recess is not deep enough. To fill a glass without dripping 'water' you need to hold the glass in a specific position and manually press the water release lever with your other hand (and then only a drip or two end up in the catch plate at the bottom). Ok for us, but not ok for kids to remember the careful steps. Freezer working well so far inc. ice maker. Looks nice in Matt Black. We also were disappointed there are no instructions to reverse the doors over despite LG advertising this model as reversible and the salesperson also confirming this to us. Anyway, as we had done our previous model and experience in this it was relatively easy to do. I have attached a user guide on the general steps required (use at own risk as it is not a definitive or official manual just an overall guide).
