Fridge-Freezer, “LG GF-B590PL”
Quiet beautifully designed fridge. Both externally and internally. The illumination inside is very good. Operation is quiet. Plastic drawers etc well placed and dimensioned. As the fridge width is smaller at 835mm than the current standard Australian maximum kitchen space width of 910 mm, it fits in nicely giving the appearance of being purpose-made. The front door panel lights up (complete with a WiFi indicator light) when the door is open adding to the impression of a very modern space-age appliance. LG have a very high rating for reliability.
The two french doors, which are easy to open, enables impressive internal horizontal storage, as for example for large dishes.
Now for some trivial criticisms. The smart phone application with the intriguing name of "SmartThingQ" was quite difficult to install successfully . Finally (after many attempts) when installed it proved to only have very basic functionality, except perhaps for a self-diagnosis function which may prove useful in the future. (The fridge is said to have a sound-signal that can be recorded by a smartphone and when played back enables remote diagnosis by a technician.) Similarly, the front panel is disappointing in that it gives only basic information. Not sure why the panel gives the temperatures at which the fridge and freezer are supposed to attain, rather than the actual temperatures? (It is like having a car fuel gauge which gives the maximum capacity of the tank rather than the actual fuel content.)
The above trivial information should in no way detract from the overall functionality of the fridge-freezer. At this short experience with the fridge-freezer it is impressive and is recommended.
Purchased in July 2019.
The Fridge Freezer you always wanted
Perfect balance of useable, and stylish. Every inch is easily accessible no struggle to see or reach anywhere, no more lost jar or small frozen items. The freezer drawers are on rollers (like a kitchen drawer), and slide in and out trouble free even when full. After major spinal surgery the bottom half of my fridge and freezer where impossible to reach. The LG 4 french door combo is perfect for me and anyone who struggles to bend. It's perfect for any family. It's perfect for singles who like to cook.
The extra wide shelves take any platter, the extra deep door shelves hold huge amounts of bottles, jars, and 3 lt milk bottles.
The fridge is so user friendly and stylish I can't stop opening the doors just to look and admire it.
GREAT lighting. There is nothing you can not love about this Fridge Freezer.

Deceptively large storage in a relatively slimline fridge/freezer
After much online research and originally planning on getting a bottom mount fridge, the storage and access of this fridge won me over. I don't understand why there aren't more fridges with French doors for the fridge and freezer sections like this one.
Pros - so much storage compared to other fridges this size (250L storage for the freezer was double some of it's bottom hung peers); easy access of the fridge and freezer with the French doors, great for smaller spaces as you're not opening not one huge door into your kitchen; pull out freezer shelves mean you don't need to dive into a large freezer drawer to find something; double bottle storage in the doors; magnetic doors; quiet.
Cons - door shelves aren't adjustable (one shelf in the fridge is adjustable); still not sure how to connect to the LG Smart ThinQ App via the WiFi and its benefits.
So Far, So Good
Our new slim (835mm wide) french door matte black fridge looks beautiful in our new kitchen. The french doors on both fridge and freezer are very handy. The freezer drawers slide out smoothly. The fridge & freezer temp display on the door is nice. We did lots of research and short-listed a replacement Westinghouse, but the quality and finish of this LG won us over. It's whisper quiet and yes, our magnets do stick to the side and front - something we had to ask. The only negatives are the door shelves can't be moved and no butter compartment - nearly deal breakers for us. And, you have to give the fridge doors a good shove to shut them - maybe an adjustment is needed. Overall, so far so good. Love it, very happy.
