When we replaced our LG with the GE we got one without the ice and water in the door. It was a nice feature, but because of the design it did not keep up with ice enough for me in the summer, let alone wife and I both as she is an iceaholic.
So she always used bagged ice (we have a commercial ice maker in our office for employees so had it available nearby). Had to open the door to get it any way. So when we got the GE it has ice maker and water but you have to open the door on this model to get it. The big advantage is the multiple times ice storage. The ice maker is no different and does not make ice any quicker, but the difference is the storage capacity. The in door ice maker has small storage. So at night the storage would fill up and stop making ice. With the in freezer storage and large storage capacity the ice maker can keep working all night long or any time we are not home using it so it has lots of surge capacity. Thus the ice maker keeps up with our needs now, even though the ice maker itself does not produce any greater quantity at a cycle.
Something to keep in mind if you or your family are iceaholics. Get the in freezer ice maker instead of the in door storage.
