I've had this refrigerator for several months now and am very happy with the purchase. It runs much quieter than my 30 y/o Frigidaire and has nice interior LED lights that make it look very modern. Pay attention to what style freezer door you're getting, as the cheaper options have a swing-open door with a plastic shelf that you pull out. Its not a terrible design, but a fair amount of space gets wasted and you end up with a smaller volume of usable freezer space. Having the fridge part on top is nice as I'm using that section much more often than the freezer and its nice to not be bending down each time.There is a "pantry drawer" below the fruit and vegetable drawers that can be used for storing larger platters, however this reduces the space above for the normal shelves. I ended up only using 2 of the large shelves as many of the items inside wouldn't fit with all 3 shelves installed. Overall, a good purchase that looks nice and performs well.

We paid $100 or so extra for stainless steel. While the front appears to be stainless steel (but magnets won't stick), the sides and top are battleship grey. White is a better choice unless the unit is enclosed on both sides. The refrigerators in the store are side-by-side and it never occurred to us to look at the sides.
We have a small opening for our refrigerator and this one fits great.

The options for our 30 inch opening were extremely limited and the choices were not much different than the 10 yr old Amana we were replacing. I measured many times to make sure, and everything suggested that this would JUST fit. It did, and its a great, modern, high quality fridge. I couldn't find any other fridge of this quality. This one is made by LG. The stainless is not fingerproof but the prints easily wipe away with a damp cloth. The side open bottom freeze is what we wanted and is great, the inside space is huge. We've had it a month, I expect it to last, and its very quiet. WE broke our ice maker hose, no fault of the appliance or Sears, so that has never worked right. I expect it will be just fine after we replace it.

Love my new refrig! As my husband and I get older, it is so much easier to have the refrigerator on the top and the freezer on the bottom. A little disappointed that I cannot put my magnets on the front door, but overall I'm very satisfied!!!!
Interestingly enough, though I write "Big, Good-Looking Refrigerator", this refrigerator was my second choice, after first attempting to fit my particular kitchen space with a Frigidaire model, which turned out to be 1/8" too wide. And though the cu.ft. of space in the Kenmore Elite is more than the Frigidaire, it still measures almost 3" less wide, and fits the space perfectly. Score one for good engineering. It's also a very handsome refrigerator in the stainless steel (or any other) finish, and features a roomy, bottom freezer. Has a cool, digital LED temperature panel at the top of the fridge compartment, so you always know at a glance what the actual temperature of the refrigerator & freezer sections are. Couldn't be happier with my purchase, and would recommend it to anyone whose kitchen space it fits.
Had one before and lasted over 12 years. Good quality and easy to use. New models have so many improvements. Includes the ice maker and door alarm so it will never stay open.
I have had this refrigerator for approximately one month so I can not comment on long term use, however overall the item seems to be a very good buy. I really like the "door alarm" feature because with my little ones running around and getting into the fridge it is nice to hear the beep to know the doore needs close. The refrigerator seems to utilize space very well. The only negative is the small freezer. There really is not a lot of room. We have a deep freeze so it does not matter. We are happy with this refrigerator and hope it lasts many years.
