    I just bought one from the local Sears clearance store. Lucked out and got one that had no "body" damage. They had hung the icemaker connection with a hand truck and bent it up. It only took about 10 minutes at home to straighten that out. Starting price was $1200 & I got it for $599. It's got the water and ice dispenser (with crushed ice also) & is 26 cu ft. On the down side it was at the far upper end of the energy star range but there is not a lot of disparity in side-by-sides. Freezer on top fridges are inherently more efficient.

    We bought the biggest Kenmore had to offer in about 2002 and it's been good except the ice maker acts up once in a while and just makes crushed ice for about a week then it starts working normal again. Other than that it's a great fridge.

    After we bought it I thought I might have liked the Maytag side by side with the doors that are shaped kinda funky so the freezer and the fridge both have a wide area.

    Have had a GE

    27 cubic foot with water, cube ice, and crushed ice in the door for 8 years. Never had a problem.

    Have a 3 year old GE that's been worked on 3x under warranty. Ice maker crapped out 2x due to moisture freezing the auger motor. Also needed a new board and fan motor.
