We made a decision!!!
Model # 2!!!
We found the exact same model in a 28 cu. ft (which is why it was more. For the same price as Model #1 we would have gotten the 25 cu ft one. Either way....we are happy).
Model #2 had features we loved, better appearance and a MUCH better warranty. The ice maker is in the door and still has door storage, freeing up more inside space too. It had a larger area for ice and water and did come with an ice tray on the bottom. (I'm sorry...but if the thing cost more than $2000, you should get an ice tray. You should not have to purchase it separate. That's just the company being cheap...which makes you wonder...)The reviews were really good too!
Model #1 was nice, but not as nice. It did have a feature #2 didn't, but it wasn't something on our "must have" list. All the model #1's had the same broken handle on the bottom freezer at the store. It didn't have as good of a warranty. The reviews were good, but said it had a noisy ice maker (one guy said it woke him up at night). The ice and water were not in the door but in the fridge part, taking up more space. And honestly, it wasn't as pretty to look at either. It had NO ice tray. lol Not a big deal...but at the same time....I just can't get passed a company being that darn cheap.
So model #2 it is!! Thanks guys!
I have laid off my countdown because I don't think anyone was interested in it. I just didn't want ya'll to think I forgot. I just don't want to waste anyones time, or mine for that matter, writing something no one reads.
This week is more packing because next week we close!
Have a good one! =)
