Quote from FeistyHarrier7561 :
I have this and really like it. The only bad thing is that it pours slow at first, when connected to my fridge, the ice maker does not work.
That is because unless the manual for the refrigerator states otherwise, RO systems are not for refrigerators due to the inconsistent pressure. Few very high-end and expensive brands state you may use it. Talking $10,000 Sub-Zero. Removing the water filter inside the unit usually makes it work. But because it's not meant for the particular refrigerator, it will eventually break the ice maker. It will also clog the water dispenser line.

Quote from obergm :
Reverse osmosis water wastes a lot of water flushing our the membranes. It also depletes your body of minerals and makes you more thirsty than the same filter without the RO.

Unless you are trying to purify non-potable water it's unnecessary.

A simple multi stage filter gets the bad stuff in city water out and leaves the minerals in. Doesn't waste water down the drain either.
We're on well water. Our water is high in nitrates and sodium, so a RO is the cheapest solution for us to get better water. We ended up going with a HomeMaster RO in the end, it has a 1:1 waste ratio. It also replenishes some minerals so the water doesn't taste "dead"

I bought this over the summer:

It makes the township water taste better than name brand bottled water. I connected it to the ice maker in my fridge. The ice no longer smells. 🤷 ♂️

How is an annoying light prematurely reminding you to buy new filter a feature? Go with cheaper G2. laugh out loud

Be warned this is a monster to install. The "easy to install" reviews on amazon are phony. Be prepared for a frustrating installation

It probably has more to do with the RO system not feed the water into your fridge at proper pressure. Most fridge manuals will list proper water pressure. Too high or too low gets you a busted ice maker.

I'm a single guy so I've been using a brita. I drink enough water, about a pitchers with every 2 days. Is there much benefit to upgrading to an ro kit of it's just me?

Really depends on your city water supply... in most large metropolitan cities with good utilities, this is a waste

Nope, the RO can show the proper pressure, but it's inconsistent. I do appliance repair and work directly with the manufacturers. This is per tech support for each particular brand.

I'm not sure if you understand what I meant by "proper pressure."

This is what GE has to say when plug a RO system into their fridge.

Real User Here, I purchased on prime day for the same price.

Compared to the cheaper unit, this one is NSF certified. NSF means: NSF/ANSI Standard 42 covers point of use and point of entry systems designed to reduce specific aesthetic or non-health-related contaminants (such as chlorine, taste and odor, and particulates) that may be present in public or private drinking water.

The cheaper one is probably fine, just doesn't have the certification.

Pros:
Waste rate is 1:1, compared to traditional tank unit 3:1
TDS meter
Easy to change filters
More under cabinet space
Will detect leaks, it will shutoff if one is detected. In a traditional setup it will shutoff, when you find the puddle..
Unlimited supply of water, albeit lower filling pressure

Cons:
Filters are a bit costly
Upfront cost is higher
Install is about the same as a tank unit, it's still easy if you're not colorblind..
Less pressure than traditional system
Needs electricity

Overall, I recommend this unit!

Unfortunately, it is you that doesn't understand me. But you were not the person I was informing, so no reason to continue.

Really? I had no issues installing the G2. Took me about 30 minutes.

Something fishy going on here. G2 model which is quite similar to this gets several TD and suddenly this amd even G2 get TU now.

Anyway did some research and finally landed on below RO and using from last 3 months, US based company, has UV plus adding minerals back. Has 1:1 water waste ratio just like this one. Best of all, it does PH balance and water tests like Fizzi water due to slightly higher ph.

Dig into it, do your own research before deciding.

I have a Samsung fridge bought in 2011 hooked up to RO running for the past 9 years without any problems. No bypassing or disconnecting the built in filter at all.
