Samsung RF197 White 18 Cu. Ft. French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - RF197WH

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
  • More ice with an automatic ice maker
    Automatically makes as much ice in less space than conventional models
  • Easy access to internal temperature controls
    The internal digital display gives you easy access to temperature controls and other information
  • Drop temperatures with Power Freeze and Power Cool
    The Power Freeze and Power Cool feature drops the temperature in each compartment by 10 degrees within minutes. Great for chilling down cases of soda or hardening up ice cream in a flash
  • Surround Air Flow
    Surround Air Flow ensures air circulates for even cooling throughout the refrigerator
  • 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

Love the depth for this product, in my smaller place with a galley kitchen it provides a lot of extra room. Two important things to note, I have a VERY slight slant in my floor and in order to level the refrigerator, the screws that come down were too short to raise it high enough. I had to use wood blocks to raise it. Also important to note is there is no built in or included water filter for the ice maker. Nice because you don't have the expense of changing it, bad if you like filtered water.

Pros:
- LED lighting
- Quiet
- Cools quickly

Cons:
- Limited shelving options make it difficult to place upright beverages anyplace but doors (Soda, Water pitcher, etc.)

Note I didn't comment on energy efficiency yet as I haven't had it long enough to judge.

I usually have two gallons of milk, a jug of OJ, a liter of soda and a homemade jug of iced tea. Only fits two gallons of milk in door.....so NO shelf space for tall containers, even salad dressing or beer bottles in main unit area.

    Comments about Samsung RF197 Black 18 Cu. Ft. French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

    Quiet, Cool Looking, Works Fantastically

    Service and delivery comments:

    Our Refrigerator went out and was time to buy a new one. Checked online prices and models, and found ABT the best around for the money. Found what we were interested in (Thanks to our salesperson-really helped us and no pressure whatsoever), but it was on back order. Took a week (we were told to expect it to come in within 1 1/2 weeks). The Customer Service moved the delivery date up to the next day and FIRST on the list for that day, instead of 4 that it was scheduled for. Best Customer Service EVER. Thank you ABT--now a customer for life! Oh--the refrigerator was delivered by a GREAT CREW-white glove service--and FAST!! And we abosutely LOVE the Samsung Refrigerator.

    Comments about Samsung RF197 Stainless 18 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator:

    Wonderful smaller fridge. Counter depth means the fridge isn't the focal point of you're kitchen sticking out from the wall. It blends in with the counters nicely. Stainless Steel finish shows every finger print and requires frequent wiping. Handsome design. Will not hold taller items unless you adjust the shelves to practically eliminate the center shelf area to hold just flat things. Quiet. Currently having trouble with the ice maker producing ice chips along with ice cubes. ABT will be out next week to check it out.

    Service and delivery comments:

    The delivery process at ABT is reason enough to buy from them. They are wonderful. They just don't plop the items in you're house and drive away, they remove the packaging and you're old appliances if you set it up that way.

      Before I buy this product, I read reviews of other people. Some people wrote that they can't put one gallon milk. I tried, and guess what? It was perfect on shelf at door side. I am very happy about this product. I would recommend highly if you have small kitchen. The delivery guys were nice and efficient.
