The filter works and it's easy to install. Six months is too short. Maybe nine months to replace, but it depends on the quality of your tap water. If Sears cut the price, people might replace them more frequently (and make more visits to Sears...hint...hint...lower the price).
I purchased this filter from my local Sears store only to find some strange objects floating in my water. I contacted the manufacturer of this product, PUR water, and was sent a coupon for a replacement unit. Only problem is NO ONE accepts these coupons including my local sears store. I now have a $50 paper weight and no fresh water to drink/cook with. The sad thing is that on PUR waters web site they ask "how clean is your water", when sadly my tap water is clean and it is only the filtered water that has this problem. These coupons from Procter and Gamble, the maker of PUR and Kenmore filters are a scam and nothing more as they are not honored anywhere and no one can tell me where they are honored.
These filters are wonderful except for one things...they don't last forever. They definitely improve taste of water and I trust that they take out the bad stuff.
If your water "off" in taste and your refrigerator uses this filter you should be happy with the clean up in taste it provides. Good tasting water is important to us. We don?t use a lot of water, mostly for drinking, coffee and tea, so we can use the filter for a year which makes it very cost effective. This filter effectively removed the chlorine after taste from our water. If you use a lot of water, you might want to shorten the replacement period to 6-months or when you start to detect a flavor change.
This water filter is more expensive than the LG water filter found on other sites for twenty dollars less.
Water tastes great with this filter!
I change my filter once per year. It is as easy as a lightbulb to change.
This is an excellent filter for the type of water we have. The taste of the water is not good unfiltered but very good through the filter.
this filter improves the quality of our city water that goes through the Sears Water softner

Happy with this purchase
It works well, no complaints, love that I can easily purchase it at the local Sears and change it out myself. Love the fact that my fridge has a warning light that it is time to change the filter
While we were away in Florida and our refrigerator was on, the power went out and it did something to it. As a consequence when the power came back on, everything in the refrigerator froze as well as the filter. When we returned we had to replace the filter. Since then everything has been fine. I just believe that the cost of the new filter was quite high.
