FWIW, JD Power ranked GE last in the french door model back about 3-4 years ago when were shopping for a new one. We ended up with a GE side by side because of water and ice dispenser on the door and had a much better rating. The ice maker, ice bin and dispenser take up a lot of room but we have a second frig/freezer for extra storage. Bottom freezer ice access is a pita, we had it in a vacation home last summer. Pull open the freezer, pull out the ice drawer, grab some ice, push drawer back in, push freezer drawer closed.
