Couldn't be EasierMay 30, 2007
By Riyad Kalla Shipped immediately, took it out of the box, ignored all the instructions and warnings as men do, unscrewed the other one, put this one in, filled up 2 big glasses of water to "flush it" and that was it.
Maybe 5mins worth of effort?
Not sure what else to say in a review of this item, worked great in our GE fridge.

Good, but could be better.Apr 07, 2012
By Law I read some of the negative reviews and gave this a try anyway. Fearing that I may end up getting a used repackaged product (as mentioned in some of the negative reviews) I made sure to pick up a TDS* water meter/tester as well. Not only to make sure I got a new filter from this seller, but also so I can test the various liquids used around my home.
As I'd mentioned in my review for the TDS* water meter/tester, my tap water is hard so I used the baseline measurement (PPM's) of a bottle of Poland Spring water. My main concern about this filter or my refrigerator water line in general, was that it wasn't going to make too much of a difference drinking water from the tap versus one that came out of this filter. After my baseline measurements, my concerns were put at ease.
Below are results from my tests:
(measurements in PPM) 0-50 = Ideal drinking water 50-100 = Carbon filtered water 100-200 = Hard water 200-300 = Marginally acceptable 200-400 = Average tap water 400+ Very high TDS contaminant level
--My household baseline-- Bottle of Poland Spring = 18 Tap Water = 281 Gatorade = 260 5 month old filter from my refrigerator water line = 240 New filter from my refrigerator water line = 200 Melted ice (4 hours) = 293
So what did I learn from this... My tap water isn't too bad, this particular filter can probably go another month or two, and I really need to clean my ice maker. The good news is that this filter removed 80+PPM's of TDS* from my tap.
*TDS* - Total Dissolved Solids are the total amount of mobile charged ions, including minerals, salts, or metals dissolved in a given volume of water.
