    How could special drawer sliders possibly cost that much?!

    Also, remember that 4 cubic ft extra will also cost you in more energy. Most families don’t need bigger than a 22-23 cubic ft fridge/freezer. Don’t get more just because it’s more!

    meh, if I really felt I needed the extra freezer space I’d stick a freezer in the basement/garage

    ETA $600 is a lot more. If we’re talking 1800 v 2400 thats a 1/3 markup for shelves

    I would always go with extra space.

    I have never heard anyone say “Darn… look at all my extra fridge/freezer space. I wish I had less” Especially around holidays and other events where there is a lot of food around. 

    EDIT Also, if its an energy rated fridge it will be cheap to run. Our new stand alone freezer is only $40 a year.

    I think the extra space would be worth it.

    @ThreeMeers:  ditto, especially if this is a long term /future family home for you guys and you can afford it get the upgrade. You’ll never wish you had less space but you’ll always wish you had more!

    I’d get the upgraded one. I always feel like I need more fridge/freezer space, yet we have a huge fridge for just two of us. We ended up getting a second for the garage off craigslist as we were constantly in need of more space.

    I’d say get the best you can afford, so you won’t regret it as quickly later when you want a newer model!  The features might not be necessary, but you’ll probably always think about them and how nice it would have been…

    The only one of the features I find useful (for me at least) is the extra space.  We never seem to have enough fridge space (and we even have a totally separate smaller fridge for beers/pop.

    But if you’d find them helpful and you can afford it, spend the extra money.  A fridge is something you will have for a while.

    I voted for something else. If it were me, and I just wanted more space. Then I’d go with a separate freezer and fridge altogether. It would probably be alot cheaper that way anyway because that does seem like a big mark up for some special shelves.
