The LG LFX31925[ST] is part of the refrigerator
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, bottom freezer refrigerator
models like the LFX31925[ST] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
This combines results of tests measuring the accuracy of initial temperature settings along with how well a model 1) kept optimum temperatures in the refrigerator and freezer at the same time; 2) kept temperatures even throughout each compartment; 3) kept temperatures constant despite changes in room temperatures; and 4) maintained set temperatures even with very high room temperatures.
This reflects electricity consumption (based on our tests) per cubic foot of measured usable storage space. For example, two models with the same energy cost per year may have different energy efficiencies -- the unit with more storage space being more efficient.
Noise level was measured when the compressor started up and during steady running. Subjective judgments by a panel of listeners supplemented our noise-meter readings.
The following models have the same ratings as LG LFX31925[ST].
Features and specs may vary
The Ratings applied to untested model LG LFX31915ST come from our tests of model LG LFX31925[ST], which in our judgment is enough alike in its performance, features, and specs that our test results apply to both.

About This Brand
LG, a leader in the bottom-freezer, will be introducing a four-door French-door and more LED lights throughout its refrigerators as well as taller integrated dispensers and a new 33-inch model with ice and water dispenser.
Claimed capacity (cu. ft.) Claimed capacity is the manufacturer's estimate of the volume, in cubic feet, of interior space.
Claimed capacity (cu. ft.)
Cabinet-depth model Cabinet-depth models usually measure 27 to 28 inches deep, not quite flush with the cabinets, but at least three inches shallower than many standard 36-inch-wide models. You can get models with stainless exteriors or panel kits.
French-door style French door models are bottom-freezer refrigerators whose upper compartments have two narrow doors that open similarly to the doors of a side-by-side refrigerator. These narrower doors use less space in front of the refrigerator when opened, and allow access to either or both sides of the full-width fresh-food compartment. Typically more expensive, French-door models are usually 36 inches wide, though some newer models are 33 inches wide.
Water dispenser It is normally located in the fresh food compartment.
Stainless/SS-look option Stainless steel is stylish but it shows fingerprints. Another option: a vinyl-covered metal finish that gives you a stainless-steel look but resists smudging.
This LG refrigerator is the most expensive yet the worst one I've ever owned. I am so disappointed in the performance of this appliance. It has quit working several times since we bought it a year ago. It quit twice just two months after we bought it. It's had things replaced on it but still doesn't work right. I wouldn't recommend an LG appliance to anyone.

Some things to think about...but I Like
Holds Temperature Well
Space For Tall Items
Water Not Cold Enough
Although I should wait another months or two to write a review I will tell you my first impressions.<br /><br />First the Good:<br />It's huge<br />Awesome lighting (which you would think you wouldn't care about but you will once you see this, it's like heaven's door)<br />Good temperature <br />Door space is good<br />I can now buy more than 3 boxes of California Pizza kitchen at a time because I can fit them in the freezer.<br />It is quite<br />Everyone said ice maker is small but it's been good enough for the two of us so far and for parties we always buy ice anyway.<br /><br />The Bad:<br /><br />It looks very big and it is, but you can't put really tall things in there. I mean you could, but you will have to move some shelves around to do so. This is not that big of an issue since the doors have good shelf space, but if you bought some milk I'm not sure where it would go, because LG does not recommend you put milk in the door. So you might wanna take an empty gallon and see how you can play with it before you buy it since it is super $$$. <br /><br />You can only get 1-2 cups of cold water at a time until you have to wait another 6 hours for the reservoir to fill up again and cool the water. Other than that the water is warm. So if this is very important to you, it is an issue. I called Lowes and LG and they told me that there is nothing that can be done and that the reservoir holds about 250cc. <br />BUT then again, they told me that most of the fridges now come like this. So if that is the case then not many complaints. <br /><br />I thought about returning it, but then I Read reviews about how other fridges are loud and I just love how big this thing is that I kept it. I always like ice in my water anyway.<br /><br />There are more pros than cons

Kicks Butt for "Fresh"
Deli Tray Rocks
Holds Temperature Well
French Style Is A Must
I have had the French door design in my life as long as I can remember. Before that the freezer was always huge and on the bottom. The Deli Tray inside just rocks as I can change the temperature settings for meat, deli and produce. My refrigerator, going on 1.5 years is running GREAT! I have the setting adjusted for my uses and when carrots, in a huge bag get slightly ice crystalized in the refrigerator, the refrigerator is Perfect. The pull out compact ice box, in the refrigeration section and located on the flat, left side, is so convenient for parties and dinner gatherings. No going to the store for ice. I cannot tell you how much I have saved on the alarmed doors. I think that the door is closed and leave the room. Oh, there goes that special alarm ring, a couple of minutes later, otherwise, the refrigeration would be lost and items spoiled with the door ajar all day long, even if the home is air conditioned.
