The French doors have it!
GF-B590PL (We had this item for only a week). It seems quite good but for such a short time we can't say too much about its performance. Just the same I like to say we liked its design. We never had 'French doors' fridge before but it seems quite nice and practical. It's quite roomy, I read that some people feel you can't put large items in it. I'm surprised of this as it seems easy to create large temporary room for such items. I also read about the unit being a little noisy but I agree with those who find it quiet, actually we find it very ...quiet. This item has an ice cube maker that strangely enough, it is a free standing unit loosely resting on 'any' freezer shelve you chose, but they have a high lip, forcing you to lift the whole unit to pull its 'bottom' draw of ice cubes out of it. It's delivery was a little of a challenge as its width (Apparently designed for narrow space!) is 8350 mm wide and you should check your accesses before having it delivered as if you need to go through sliding doors that stick out a little, it may be a problem! It has a touch pad "Smart" it is supposed to be, but I'm battling to get the WIFI working with the ThinQ app. that is not very successful at the present...Anyway this so call feature is apparently only able to cycle through the fridge and freezer temperature settings! This is a few + steps on the fridge, and some - (minus) on the freezer! So far no one as been able to tell me it can do more than this. How far would most people be from their fridge to need to adjust it remotely, we're not talking about a TV! ( I was advised to give this feedback to the 'technical' team, but still waiting for an answer!) However this adjustment can be done easily with that touch pad, but even there it will not tell you what temperature are these 2 compartments, only what it's set for, and the default seems to be +3 and -18. That touch pad has a few more features and warnings that may be useful. LG may or may not be easy to contact....I managed to get them on the phone, their 'live Chat' and also WhatsApp) after many tries, as often there was not reply or activity...Then you find on your phone or pc that they did not get a response from you so you were disconnected! However if you keep on it someone may actually connect again! But that someone is most likely a person that won´t be able to help you and you're on for another round...! Call back may be any length of time so you hope for the best....I guess many businesses operate the same though. When I got someone it was reasonable although they still have not managed to work out why my Wi Fi connection is not working. Or they call back never reach me but once but again to be promised another call.... (This review was first submitted to LG but despite a few contact and promises they'd ring or put me on a 'specialised' team I got nowhere with my query, I gave up on them as, like I hinted earlier on, it is rather a waste of time to use the Wi Fi feature anyway.)

Love the large freezer section
We bought this 11 months ago (July 2020) when LG were doing cash back offers.
Paid $2076 and got $150 cash back directly from LG. The freezer section is large cf with other large fridges of similar volume. Exactly what we needed. The functionality of the doors is great, no plastic hinges either! Easy visibility in the fridge. Food stays fresh and cool. No frozen eggs, off milk, or wilted spinach!
Pros: GREAT freezer, holds temperature really well. French doors make it a dream to access. Great visibility inside. Easy to adjust the temperature.
Purchased in July 2020 at Camberwell Electrics for $1,926.00.
We purchased this fridge due to the ease it provides whilst accessing. The four separate doors allows for individual compartments to be accessed without having the entire fridge being opened, It also has individual draws inside the freezer section that allows for easy access. Being elderly we also like the fact that we don`t have to juggle items within the freezer to find what your searching for. The build quality appears to be very good, it has the new inverter style electrics that is cheaper to run. This model does not have the internal water or ice supply which is also why we chose it. We didn`t require these functions.

Great slim design
- fits into our 91cm width
- wide shelving
- not noisy
- fruit/veg drawers too small. Can't fit long veggies like leeks, celery, kale.
- not all fridge shelves are adjustable in height.
- left fridge door is very loud when closing due to self closing hinge. Bottles in the shelves rattle a lot.

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
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?
Thanks for all replies. Have taken delivery of fridge and found that it is quite quiet.
