Side-by Side Refrigerators
I'm not overly impressed with any of the domestically made SxS refrigerators although I haven't heard too much about Whirlpool's so that might be a manufacturer's product to look at?
** Who has the best warranty out there? **
Frigidaire used to have a 10 year 'sealed system' warranty on the fridge's and freezers, I don't know if they still do. BTW. That was only on their "Frigidaire" branded products and not on any of the other brand names they sell under (see the following link).
** with ice maker and water dispenser. **
More things to break down IMO and often expensive to repair when they do. Many of the manufacturers have had problems with the electronics (big surprise?) used in their 'through the door' dispenser mechanisms requiring modifications or field upgrades. I don't know if all the shortcomings have been corrected in currently available models.
BTW. You can also look forward to purchasing a replacement refrigerator water filter 2-3 times a year for the lifetime of the product (+$$$).

Have you looked at the freezer on the bottom models? My mother has one of those and loves it.
