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.

This was the same filter I could have ordered from GE directly, but at a much better price.

Good, but could be better.Apr 07, 2012
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.

Doesn't filter anything!Dec 21, 2009
I have 2 GE refrigerators, both under 2 years old. I purchased 2 of these replacement filters...and an HM water meter, to see how good the the filters work. To my extreme surprise, the water filters remove nothing from the water, the contaminent levels are equal with the tap water in each of my two houses!!! I ran gallons of water through the filters and the readings never went down. So I called GE, customer service informed me there was a small chance I could have received 2 defective filters, and I should try to return them to Amazon. I tested the HM water meter on bottled water that is supposed to be very pure, and it was. Arrowhead water is at a "marginally safe tap water" level. My neighbor's reverse osmosis worked well. (I highly recommend everyone get a water meter...especially if you are putting any kind of trust in these GE filters!).
