Very good fridge, although water pump may be a problem
We purchased this fridge mid-2020 and the in-built water cooler and ice maker is a blessing in Australian summers. As others mentioned, the water pump is fairly noisy and potential buyers will need to assess whether the noise is tolerable. We don't use the water dispenser on the door, and so the only time we hear the noise is when the ice maker refills (several times a day for ~5 seconds).
Another potential issue is the quality of the water pump. Ours failed in the first year. Repair via LG and their contracted repair agent was speedy, but the...repairman advised that this is not an uncommon problem. He surmised that it could possibly be the result of frequent occasions when the pump attempts to draw from an empty water tank (the manual makes no mention of this). Fortunately, the pump is plug and play, requiring only the removal of a small back panel, and so handyman owners out of warranty need not fear an overly complicated repair procedure. However, the pump (part no. 1946851) is fairly expensive at $175. I distinctly remember the pump becoming obscenely louder in the weeks leading up to its failure. If owners notice theirs doing so, I would suggest that you have the pump assembly examined when your warranty is still active to ensure that you have no out of pocket costs.
Excellent purchase. The led lights inside are are real winner. Just an fyi you'll need about 20-30cm wider than product for doors to open. I've got 110 cm and the freezer door really can't open wide but it's no big deal. Anyone complaining about the ice maker is insane. Of course it makes a noise extremely periodically. It's an ice maker. Unless you are sleeping under it it's irrelevant. If you're deciding between ice and no ice, this non plumbed version is incredible. We love it.

Extremely noisy ice maker
No problem with the fridge. It's near new BUT it makes an horrible grinding noise from the ice maker that echos through the whole house at inconsistent times, night and day.

Know better, choose better.
Our recent purchase of the LG L668 was after much research. As we previously had a side by side we looked for a similar fridge. Having made the purchase I am happy to report that the fridge is meeting all our requirements. After switching on we had to wait 24 hours before it was at peak performance but after that - no problems. Ice maker is great. The freezer section works well as does the fridge section. Minor comment is that the fridge door must open fully in order to remove the baskets. Fridge is quiet in running. Doors are a bit different as they don't have 'handles' but you quickly get used to the 'channels' in the door when opening and closing. Very happy to recommend this to other purchasers.
