I have this system and have been pretty happy with it. A few notes:

1 - It's big. Like "take up half of your cabinet space under your sink" big. Luckily I have a utility room beneath my kitchen to drill down into and mount everything there, with just the hoses running up to the faucet.
2 - It's pretty easy to set up, just a little time consuming due to the contortions necessary to hook things up under the sink. Make sure to check for leaks often during the first few hours/days after installation - I had one that was fairly easily fixed by tightening one of the filter housings.
3 - The filtered water goes into the storage tank, and then the faucet draws it from there. This means that your water will only be as cold as wherever the storage tank is. For me, this means "slightly colder than room temp" which is actually just fine with me, but some folks might expect colder water. I'm sure there are plenty of good ways to fix this, but I haven't bothered to research what other smarter people have done.
4 - The water tastes great! The instructions say after installation to fully purge the storage tank once, which I did. For the first few days, there was a slightly funny taste to the water, which I attribute to everything getting flushed out of the filters (all 5 of them) and the storage tank. If I were to do it again, I might flush the tank three times instead of just one in order to really get things through the system. We haven't had any funny tastes since then, though - just very clean tasting water!

Hope this helps!

I did. Haven't replaced the filter fridge in 2 years since there's nothing for it to filter.

Best part of the deal seems to be filters for $35/yr

You could definitely run a hose off of a t-fitting. If the ice maker in my fridge worked, I'd do it. As of now, I just fill up the water cooler with a few gallons every now and then.

One thing to note is that it produces quite a bit of "waste" water. Instead of down the drain, as seen in the instructions, I've routed it outside to some plants and grass. They don't mind it being a little more "dirty" than tap water.

Have this system too. In fact, liked it so much I have 3 total including my parents' home and my rental property.

Ditto everything rytype93 said and I'll add some of my own.

1) make sure when you're installing the compression fittings that the tube actually goes in approximately 5mm. It may seem like it's connected but you'll be sorry when it starts to drip on you later on.
2) you can keep the valve for the tank closed and run the system with the faucet open for 5-10 minutes to flush most of the carbon and junk out of the filters. You'll still have to flush the tank once or twice but hopefully not as many times since a lot of gunk has hopefully been purged prior to you opening the tank valve.
3) get a TDS meter so that you know the filter is working. Measure your cold tap water before and measure the post filter water after about a week of using the system. You should have purified water around 10-20ppm (unless you have super hard water). I also use my TDS meter periodically to check the condition of my filters. If I see the count going up, I know it's about time to change the filters.
4) speaking of filters, in my situation, I change my filters about half as often as recommended by the manufacturer, based on my TDS readings. My tap water is around 250ppm and post filtered water around 15ppm. I replace the filters whenever it gets above 20ppm. I use approx. 5 gallons per day.
5) the hardest parts of the install are drilling the 0.5" hole for the faucet and hooking up the cold water supply if you have old valves. Do those first and the rest is easy!

Yes and no... most ice makers work off of a valve that closes via water pressure. You need at least 40psi for it to close properly.

If the water pressure inside your house is over 60psi, then you should be OK as long as you aren't filling pitcher after pitcher of water

If your water is between 40 and 60psi, it might be OK as long as you haven't used any filtered water in while before the ice maker fills... it is not recommended though because of the pressure recovery time after the RO filter...

If you are less than 40psi, your ice maker will leak... period... with or without this filter...

You could look for a pump-assisted RO filter if you want to have multiple taps or hook to an ice maker... They are a bit more expensive, but the difference is cheaper than repairing your fridge...
