Great price, works well, lasts 10-12 months

Great value replacement for Panasonic side by side 'American fridge' - about one third the price of the genuine Panasonic filter and seems to perform much the same. Note that when you first install the water dispenser may drip for ages, you must run lots of water through the filter to stop this, so get a bucket and run about 20 large glasses through the new filter and it should reduce then stop dripping. Fitting the filter won't turn off the warning lamp.With the dispenser control panel set on water or crushed ice, hold the 'Select' button for approximately 3 seconds to clear the icon.
I usually find I can get nearly 10 to 12 months use before the water starts to taste and smell which is an easy way to know the filter needs changing.

13 months after replacing my last EcoAqua filter and just fitted another.... these seem to perform much the same as the original Panasonic (3m made) filter. I can't see any perceivable difference between the original and these. My most recent filter fitted with very little dripping once I'd run 20 large glasses of water through the new filter. I'm now ordering another one.
