Samsung RS265 Black Side-By-Side Refrigerator, Model RS265TDBK

The Samsung RS265TDBP Side-By-Side Refrigerator combines innovative technology with a gorgeous design to create a refrigerator that will be an appreciated upgrade to any kitchen. If you're looking for the best refrigerator available in a side-by-side model, your search is over.

With 26 cubic feet of total storage, the Samsung RS265TDBP fridge provides an expansive interior that's perfect for big families. Explore a variety of storage options in the 15.8 cubic foot refrigerator, with 4 adjustable glass shelves, 2 crisper drawers and a variety of door bins and shelves. The 9.78 cubic foot freezer section features a built-in automatic icemaker and water dispenser, 5 glass shelves and a trio of tilting door bins. Multiple LED lights fully illuminate the interior of the Samsung RS265TDBP, so you'll never lose track of that mystery container way in the back.

Most refrigerators use a single system to cool both the freezer and refrigerator. The Samsung RS265TDBP uses the unique Twin Cooling System, which creates cool air for the fridge and freezer separately. This allows for dry air in the freezer and a higher moisture level in the fridge. Combined with an air circulation system that puts out cool air from outlets all over the fridge, the Samsung RS265TDBP helps keep your fruits, vegetables and other perishables stay fresh longer.

Small details on the Samsung RS265TDBP help cement its status as a best-in-class fridge. An external digital display provides easy access to temperature adjustment, controls the water and ice dispensers and reminds you when to change your filter. An integrated alarm sounds if the door is accidentally left ajar. And as an ENERGY STAR Compliant fridge, the Samsung RS265TDBP will save you money over the course of its life. When you add it all up, it's no wonder a leading consumer magazine named the RS265TDBP one of the best refrigerator buys of the year.

Features:

  • Twin Cooling keeps food fresher
    Samsung's Twin Cooling System® controls and generates cooling air for the refrigerator and freezer separately. Airflow between the two stays separate so the freezer air stays drier, while the refrigerator's moisture level stays at 42%-almost 5x higher than single cooling systems resulting in fruits and veggies that stay fresher, longer
  • Find items fast with Energy-efficient LED lighting
    Strategically-placed LED lighting brightens every corner to help you find what you need. LED also emits less heat, making it much more efficient than traditional bulb lighting
  • ENERGY STAR® Compliant
    You'll save money while conserving energy with our ENERGY STAR®-rated refrigerators. Plus, a handy alarm alerts you when the door is left ajar or open too long
  • External digital display to easily adjust controls
    Convenient display shows the inside temperatures, when to change the filter, and controls the ice and water dispenser
  • Improved air circulation to keep food fresher
    Improved air circulation is another cool way to keep your food fresh. Cool air flows out through multiple outlets in every shelf level and provides even cooling throughout the refrigerator. An ideal temperature is always maintained to keep your food fresh longer

We just bought our fridge. We love it, but as with anything it has faults. I love the LED lights, but they are borderline dim. Probably just used to our old incandescent bulbs. Love the temperature control you have over your food. The power cooling feature works well for when one needs to make ice fast for many guests visiting. The one major gripe would be the very few mounts available for personalizing the shelfs. There seem to be only one or two configurations that work. I would buy it again though, love the Twin Cooling.

If ice production is important to you, you should not purchase this refrigerator. It does not produce enough ice for my family of two. We keep a bag of purchased ice in the freezer at all times. It's embarrassing when guests are visiting to bring out my bag of ice. After our purchase, I was told by the retailer that the Samsung brand produced less ice than other brands - 6 cubes every 90 minutes - NOT NEARLY ENOUGH! This is the only feature I don't like. Other than the ice production, we have not experienced problems. We've had many refrigerators and have never before experienced this problem. The icemaker has been replaced but the problem remains. It's just not designed to do any better. The cubes also hang frequently and jam causing a messy cleanup and loss of the few cubes we have. Very poor design.

    Door Ice Maker Ongoing Issue

    By 

    from Henderson, NV

    Comments about Samsung RS265 White Side-By-Side Refrigerator:

    The door ice maker has been an on going problem since we purchased the product. While we love all of the other Samsung products that we have (e.g., LCD TV), the refrigerator has been a major disappointment.

      • No drip tray

      Best Uses

        Comments about Samsung RS265 White Side-By-Side Refrigerator:

        We purchased this fridge along with a new range and microwave. It provided the biggest bang for our buck compared to other units we looked at and was also a consumer reports best buy for this price range. We were a little concerned with the in-door ice system but liked how much more room it provided inside the freezer side. The lighting is good and there is plenty of room inside. I like the fact that the water doesn't come out ice cold although it's definitely cooler than water out the faucet. The ice maker took a while to get going but hasn't left us short since it filled up. It does have a smaller bin than our old fridge but it's still adequate for our family of 4. My minor gripes are related to the angle and position of the water dispenser nozzle and the lack of a drip tray. The nozzle that dispenses the water is angled in towards the door. This makes it a little tricky if you're trying to fill anything but a glass or cup. There is a set of small indentations under the water dispenser but these can only handle a few drops of water before you have water running down the door onto the floor. Holding cups an extra second or two after the water shuts off helps to minimize this but it's easy to end up with overflows, especially if you're filling a bottle which you can't easily see into. A proper drip tray would help with this issue. Apart from these minor issues we are very happy with our purchase. The fridge is quiet, appears to hold it's temperature well and has plenty of room. Fix the drip tray and I'd give it straight 5 stars.

          Comments about Samsung RS265 White Side-By-Side Refrigerator:

          Very pleased with everything BUT the ice maker. It clogs up and the ice jams in the chute to fill a glass. It is a very messy job of removing the ice bin because it's stuck with ice and then you have to insert your fingers into the chute to remove the ice cubes which spill out and fall onto the floor. This problem must be extensive because Samsung has on-line instructions on how to unjam it.

                  I purchased this model in 2011. Three months later it blow up (could not be fixed). The unit was replaced with a brand new one. The current refrigerator simply does not cool properly. Example: freezer set to -8F, refrigerator set to 36F. Although the outside panel says the temperatures have been reached, the real inside temperatures (per my own thermometers) are 32F in freezer and 44F in the freezer. Numerous technicians have been unable to fix this!

                    Horrible shelving, you are at the mercy of the manufacturer's design. For some reason they thought it was a good idea to have a refrigerator were you cannot adjust the shelf height. There a so many better options out there right now with multiple shelving set ups. While using the ice dispenser it spits out shards of ice chips that miss the cup and go straight to the floor. Also when removing the "ice bucket" from the freezer to fill a container or whatever it's awkward and difficult at times to put the thing back. We have cursed this thing out almost every time we remove it. On the bright side it is an attractive refrigerator.
