  These models (FGHB2844LP, FGHB2844LE, FGHB2844LM, FGHB2844LF, FGHB2869LP and FGHB2869LF) are all extra-large French-door refrigerators that should store enough food for most large households. With two half-width doors for the fresh food section on top and a full-width, pull-drawer-style freezer door below, these come with a through-the-door dispenser for filtered water and crushed or cubed ice, and two humidity-controlled crisper drawers. The main differences between these models are the available exterior colors and minor interior variations. For example, the FGHB2844LP, FGHB2844LE, FGHB2844LM and FGHB2844LF have incandescent lights (four 40-watt) in the refrigerator section instead of LED lights, while the FGHB2869LP, FGHB2869LF and FPHB2899LF have an air filter, can dispenser, wine rack and other options. And as part of Frigidaire's Professional series, the the FPHB2899LF has other extras, like non-slip bin liners.

What People Are Saying:

The Frigidaire Gallery FGHB2878LP was on the 2011 reccomended list at Consumer Reports, which estimates that these other models will provide similar results -- ratings of excellent for noise, very good for temperature performance and energy efficiency and good for ease of use, but with poor ice making performance. User reviews are mainly positive, although a few owners report ongoing repair problems, particularly with the ice maker and water dispenser. Most like the spacious and flexible interior, but several don't like the fact that it's necessary to open both refrigerator doors to get into the full-width deli/meat drawer and a few think the ice maker is too slow.
