Efficient

  • Excerpt: The water dispenser is inside the fridge. It can leak. I encounter problems with this issue immediately after purchase. Another problem I encounter is how delicate the French doors are, if they are closed too fast, the middle tab can come off track and its hard to repair unless your tech takes care of it. To clean spills that run into groves its also a challenge.

Poor qualiity

  • Summary: I bought a Samsung refrigerator and the freezer door broke within two weeks. We opened the door no more than 5 times. Customer service is the worst I have ever experienced. We bought a package of four Samsung appliances and two of the four did not work.

Not cabinet depth! But grows on you

Happily Natural, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this refrigerator 2 years ago. Love the concept of double door bottom mount cabinet depth frig, but not cabinet depth. It actually is 31" deep because of chunky door handles and 2" deep straight plug. As others have said, it does make strange noises and when they are first heard it seems as the refrigerator is dying. After a while we got used to the noise. If our bedroom was on the same floor it might be annoying. It does ice in the refrigerator bottom shelf.

Wrong size

John N, Amazon

  • Summary: This fridge was supposed to be 65" tall, which would have just fit in the cabinet space we have. The one that came is 70" tall, so now we either have to rebuild the cabinets or deal with sending this one back and getting another one.

Lots of room, not much else to be impressed with.

  • Excerpt: My husband and I purchased this refrigerator to upgrade from the teeny tiny one that came with the house, and chose it because of the bottom freezer as well as roomy interior. This thing is MASSIVE and the room inside reflects that. I can fit a lot of food in here and there are a few options for the location of drawers/shelves, so I can easily put large pans or party platter inside with no issue.

perfect

  • Summary: the dimensions are accurate. please keep this in mind. the controls are simple and straightforward, and it maintains the temperature perfectly. it also has an alarm that goes off when you leave the door ajar. very handy. the finish is very good and does not fingerprint easily, which is a good thing. It is also extremely quiet and doesn't make unpleasant noises. lights inside are very bright and very good. overall, very happy with this unit.

So far so good?

K. Seidl "KSeidl", Amazon

  • Summary: I love this fridge but I am afraid of it. First the love.. if you've been looking for a counter depth because you don't have much room in your kitchen then this, at the time of writing, is pretty much the only option. All of the other fridges made up for the depth with crazy width. The prices are also double for counter depth. This one is not. I live alone, so this is plenty of space for me. The platinum is also the best thing to ever happen.

SAMSUNG does NOT acknowledge their fridge has a design

Bernard Lenteric, Amazon
10 August 2012
  • Summary: Letter to Consumer Reports: I bought this SAMSUNG RF266ABRS fridge because it was recommended by Consumer Reports in August 2009. This fridge - and other SAMSUNG fridges - should be taken off the recommended list because there is an inherent design defect that causes ice buildup on the evaporator coils. First there is a rattling noise as the fan hits the ice buildup. [...

Terrible refrigerator

C deBordenave, Amazon
10 August 2012
  • Summary: I bought this refrigerator because it is the perfect size for our kitchen. We are not bothered by the inflexible shelf size and the small interior. HOWEVER we bought this three moths ago and the refrigerator part has stopped cooling. The freezer works, but the refrigerator part is at 52degrees and won't go any lower. Since it stopped working I have gone online and looked at reviews for this refrigerator - and they are all terrible!
