  The Frigidaire FFHT1817LW is a basic, no frills, traditional top-freezer refrigerator, often used in a small kitchen or a rental unit, or as a second refrigerator. At 30" wide and 5'6" high, it's not as compact as some top-freezer models, but it will fit in a tight space better than most and should hold a moderate amount of groceries for a small family. It doesn't come with a factory-installed ice maker or water dispenser, but an optional ice maker kit is available. The exterior has a textured finish, with a reversible door on the white and black models, and left-swing-only or right-swing-only on the stainless steel models. Standard features also include two glass shelves that are sliding and adjustable; gallon-container storage in one of three door bins and two humidity-controlled crisper drawers.

Models: FFHT1817LW (White), FFHT1817LB (Black), FFHT1817LS (Stainless Steel)

What People Are Saying:

A top seller for top-freezer refrigerators at Best Buy, the Frigidaire FFHT1817LW is on the 2012 recommended list at Consumer Reports, which rated it excellent for enregy efficiency, very good for temperature performance, good for noise and poor for ease of use. The FFHT1817LW has earned mainly positive user reviews, although a small number have reported problems with frost and noise. It received mixed reviews in 11 Sears user reviews, with one reviewer complaining it "sounds like a diesel truck in my kitchen" but another saying the unit is not too loud and "works as a refrigerator should, cooling and freezing as appropriate." Several reviewers say they use this as a second refrigerator in the garage, so noise isn't an issue.
