The main benefit of this LG side-by-side refrigerator is its large capacity as well as plenty of shelving space. It is ideal for large families and for people who frequently buy groceries in bulk.
There’s a LED touch panel at the top left corner of the fridge door which allows users to control the operating temperature of the refrigerator and change WiFi status.

LG GC-X247CSAV features :
- Net capacity 601L

- Express freezer and express cool feature
- Door Alarm
- Ice/cold water dispenser (With crushed ice function)

- Hygiene FRESH+ air filter and deodorizer
- Touch-sensitive LED control panel
The LG GC-X247CSAV is very similar to GC-B247SLUV except that it has an automatic ice maker and knock-knock Instaview feature.
I would only recommend buying the LG GC-X247CSAV if you think the automatic icemaker feature is important to you.
This is because the Instaview feature is not as hi-tech as the Samsung Family Hub. And the price of LG GC-X247CSAV is more than 50% more expensive than the LG GC-B247SLUV model.
The Instaview feature is just a mirrored glass panel that illuminates with two quick knocks. It is a cool feature but not really significant as you still have to be in front of the fridge to check what’s inside the door-in-door compartment.
This feature, however, is effective to reduce cold air loss up to 41% in comparison to opening the fridge door.
The other unique feature of this fridge is its Hygiene FRESH+ air filter. It can remove up to 99.99% bacteria and minimize bad odour in the fridge.
This fridge comes with a convenient LED control panel that can be used to set the temperature, active WiFi, Express freeze, child lock, and Hygiene Fresh.
