Never wrote a review, but this fridge earned it. I've had it for about a week, and so far so great.... I can't even hear it running. It replaced a built-in, counter-depth 19 year old Sub Zero, which couldn't compare with the Samsung, but it may be too early to tell. I noticed a few reviews mentioned a slow ice maker. Mine seems to keep up just fine. I'll write another review if things change.

The Refriderator in general is great. It has all the features you would want in a counter depth fridge. The big problem I had was with the ice maker. I bought my first one in November 08 and the ice maker broke in Feb 09. I was without an ice maker for 3 months while parts were being found. After no parts could be found, Samsung was gracious enough to replace the fridge since they couldn't get part in a timely manner. Got the new one a couple weeks ago and the ice making is very sluggish. I've already had to buy two bags of ice to supplement the ice maker. It is frustrating. If the ice maker problem was fixed, I would love the fridge.

Comments about Samsung RSG257 Stainless Steel Side-By-Side Refrigerator:
Love, Love Love, this refrigerator. It is very quiet. I had a larger 24.6 counter depth and this one is so much larger inside. Love the LED lighting and can't get over the stainless steel cleaning product that they gave me at install. I can say without a doubt, it is the best cleaner I have come across, and I have tried them all. I cleaned all my other appliances and they look like new, first time in 6 years. Thanks Samsung, you sold me on this one.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Nice, counter-depth fridge
Pros: I was looking for a counter-depth fridge that wouldn't break the bank. It is a very sleek model, that looks very updated. Our family loves the racks for bottles and cans, and the gallon sized bins on the fridge door. The interior is very well lit, which makes everything easy to see. The ice maker does make minor noise when it is filling, but other than that the fridge runs very quiet. Cons: The drawers do not pull out all the way, unless you are removing them for cleaning (which is a minor annoyance). And I didn't realize that the front of the fridge was not magnetic when I bought it. So, no artwork is getting posted without some tape. The front does tend to pick up those little fingerprints as well. Overall, we are pleased with our purchase. We have only had the fridge for a couple of weeks, so I can't comment on longevity.
Looks good, breaks after 3 weeks of use
from New Jersey
The fridge looks good, it's not very spacious but it is counter depth fridge. For the quality it is severely overpriced. It broke after 3 weeks of use. I would not recommend it to anyone.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Good temperature control, kind of noisy
from Philadelphia, PA, USA
Refrigerator maintains temperatures very well. Digital display of temperatures is a nice feature. Seems well designed to maximize use of interior space. We moved down from 25 cuft to this 22 cuft and can hardly tell the difference. The food drawers only open 4 to 5 inches, hard to get bulky stuff into them. Ice maker is noisy when dropping ice into the bin - noisy enough that it is startling. Full or empty, doesn't matter. The water fill cycle is also noisy. The leveling legs aren't very well designed. Manual says to use a screwdriver to adjust them but the slots for the blade aren't deep enough to do this when there is weight on the legs. Channel locks work though.
One small problem
from Oklahoma City, OK, USA
My only complaint so far is that the water button sticks and you have to pry it in order to punch the ice button. All in all, the refrigerator is performing well. It is fairly quiet and makes plenty of ice and is keeping everything at a perfect temperature. I have only had it for week and a half, so I can't say long term.
When shopping for a side-by-side, I had previously read the reviews and knew I wanted a Samsung. I am very pleased with it so far. Would recommend it. It is a standard 36 inches wide and would have liked it to be a couple of inches narrower.
Love the "extras" on this refrigerator
from Nashville, TN, USA
I really like the wine rack and the little extra place for soft drinks! Easy to find the food....doesn't get "lost" in the back of the fridge. The ice maker makes a high pitched "whine" when it's filling with water but we don't use a lot of ice and it only lasts 30 seconds or so. The ice has a hard time getting started but again....it's not that big a deal for us. The chilled water dispenser works great and it's easy to fill different size containers. And....I just love how it looks. If it's as reliable as it is good looking this will be well worth it. The counter depth looks much more "high end" than the ones that stick way out into the kitchen.
It's a great product i will recommend
from Bronx new york

Great side by side
from Littleton, CO
Affordable counter depth fridge that has great space and lighting
great design except
from California, USA
Instead of having a bread and cake drawer, I would rather see a deli drawer. I have quite a lot of sliced meats and cheeses and there is not a compartment. Love that the doors are deeper than my old one as there is a lot more storage. One of the things that I don't like, is that I have stainless steel doors and the sides are a dark grey. In my kitchen this shows. Why not have a light grey to match the refrigerator. The stainless steel doors are VERY hard to clean. Almost impossible to get all of the marks off and I use a stainless steel cleaner that was recommended.
