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.

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 freeze...r 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.
Questions & Answers
Are the external surfaces of "Stainless Finish" fridges as durable as "proper" stainless steel or regular white painted external surfaces?
Some reviewers have said that contrary to the feature of the linear compressor, this is a "very noisy fridge, not suitable for open-plan living". Is there a technical specification on the noise level available anywhere?
Not sure about other reviewers but our LG GF B590MBL fridge is so quiet we often open it just to check it's actually working. We have a small house and hear every little squeak and creak but nothing from our fridge. Of all the wonderful features, the quiet operation is one of our favourites. Maybe you could check which model the other reviewers were referring to?
