The icemaker on our four-year-old French door Samsung refrigerator stopped working along with the introduction of several new problems with the fridge that we had to have repaired at a hefty cost. These issues went on for almost three months. During part of that time we were getting bagged ice from our corner store which didn't last for more than a couple of days in our cooler. (We're in Florida and even with AC it's hot here in August and September!) I originally saw this icemaker in an RV magazine and decided it would fit the purpose to give us ice as well as provide more ice later if we had company and the icemaker in the fridge couldn't keep up. Well, the refrigerator is now repaired but the cost replacing the fridge icemaker was beyond what I wanted to spend. So, this portable Koldfront icemaker has been the perfect answer and we'll look to be using it for quite some time. Other people in other reviews have complained it is noisy but it's really not that loud and only if you are standing right next to it in the kitchen do you even hear it most of the time except when the new ice is released to the bin. And it is no louder than the icemaker was in the fridge and I also have better things to do than stand around in the kitchen listening to the icemaker! It is "portable" but it's not extremely light in weight so I would consider that once you get it placed on your counter or in your RV that's where it is going to stay.
