  A full-size traditional refrigerator, the Frigidaire Gallery FGUI2149LP is relatively large for a top-freezer refrigerator, but will fit into a 30" opening and should provide adequate food storage for a medium-size household. It comes with a factory-installed ice maker but not a water dispenser. Other features include adjustable door bins with room for gallon containers, two humidity-controlled clear crisper drawers and a light inside both the freezer and refrigerator compartments. The white and black models can be installed to swing either right or left, but the stainless steel models are either right-swing or left-swing only.

Models: FGUI2149LP (Pearl White), FGUI2149LE (Ebony Black), FGUI2149LF (Stainless, Left Swing), FGUI2149LR (Stainless, Right Swing)

What People Are Saying:

The Frigidaire FGUI2149LP is on the 2012 Best Buy list (the top ranking) at Consumer Reports, which rated it excellent for energy efficiency, very good for temperature performance, good for noise levels and fair for ease of use, but with poor ice making performance. There aren't many online user reviews of this model but the majority have been positive, although several mention a problem with the freezer door popping open when the refrigerator door is shut. Some consumers praise the "no fingerprints" exterior on the stainless steel option, while others consider the interior plastic shelves to be flimsy and/or poorly secured. Most users report that the refrigerator runs quietly, although a few say it's too loud.
