What People Are Saying:

A top seller at Amazon and Best Buy, the Frigidaire FTTR1814LW is on the 2012 Best Buy list (the highest ranking at Consumer Reports, which rates it excellent for energy efficiency, very good for temperature performance, good for noise and poor for ease of use. User reviews are mixed, with an almost equal number of high and low ratings. Favorable reviews come primarily from one- or two-person households with limited space in the kitchen or folks who bought this as a second refrigerator for extra storage; they call it a relatively quiet and spacious bare-bones refrigerator although a few didn't like the wire shelves, wished the half-width shelf in the freezer was full-width and report that items easily fall through the railing on the door racks. Negative reviews typically say it's too loud and noisy, with an attractive exterior but a "flimsy" plastic interior; some also reported ongoing repairs, with the compressor a frequent problem.
