What People Are Saying:

On the best sellers list for top-freezer refrigerators at Amazon, Best Buy and Sears, the ETOMSRX gets somewhat mixed user reviews, with a few folks calling it noisy and loud, and complaining that the light fixture placement limits the storage space on the top shelf. However, other user reviews say it's quiet, easy to clean and ideal for a single person or two people who don't cook much, or as a second refrigerator for beverages or similar overflow items. In about 25 user reviews at Best Buy, almost all give it high ratings and only two give it low marks. On Lowe's user reviews it received mixed ratings, with comments ranging from "lasted 6 months" to "great little fridge."
