Samsung RS261 Black Side-By-Side Refrigerator, Model RS261MDBK

Features:

  • 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
  • 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
  • Commercial-grade cooling at home
    Samsung's Twin Cooling Plus System® separates airflow between the refrigerator and freezer to improve freshness in each area. The freezer air stays drier, while the refrigerator's humidity level stays at an ideal 75% (commercial-grade), so perishable fruits and veggies 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

I love the goods looks of this refridgerator. It has large,strong handles, nice doors,clean stainless steel with gray sides, bottom is covered and it has a very nice presence in your kitchen. The inside is just as nice. It has large capacity and nice set up. The LED lights are really cool. You usually only see this in the higher price range. It has a crisper drawer and a thing called power cool in the fridge side.What is really cool is the power freeze on the freezer side. If the ice cream has started to melt, you can hold the outside button down for 3 seconds and quickly refreeze or if your favorite beverage needs quick cooling, you can use the power cool the same way. Beverage cooled in 15 minutes! The freezer has a area for large frozen pizzas near the ice maker, which is nice. The ice maker and water dispenser work great and it makes plenty of ice and does not leak water. I saw comments on previous models that mentioned this. This a new model just put out and I think they have solved those problems. The only negative is you have to push a little bit to get the ice to dispense, not good with plastic cups. If this is cotinues to be the only negative, I think I made a great purchase! Now the mostimportant thing is the price. It was the lowest price we found out there anywhere, especially packed with all the features this one has.This my first Samsung puchase and so far I am thrilled. We looked everywhere and this IS the best deal and a super product. If your'e reading this I'd say your search is over. Don't hesitate to buy.

I would have enjoyed this refrigerator, it being the first "fancy" fridge I have bought. A piece broke off the sliding drawer assembly the day of delivery, when we put a draw back in place. It was repaired a week later. Now, approximately 3 weeks after delivery (but unfortunately more than 30 days after purchase) the icemaker is broken. It is not producing ice in any normal quantity; we might as well not have one. I am so disappointed, because the online reviews were decent (except for the icemaker issue), and it is a nice piece of equipment to grace our new home. It's big enough to store most of what we need refrigerated, although I use a separate freezer and in the future I'll probably get a French door fridge owing to the somewhat narrow refrigerator side. The final problem I'm having is that I just cannot keep the stainless steel clean. I wish the product came with a full size stainless steel cleaner, as did my oven, or had a protective coating to keep it clean.

              The layout of this side by side is far better than any previous side by side refrigerators that I have owned. I especially like the defrost drawer in the refrigerator side of the appliance.

              We have had it for a little over a week now. Still getting used to the side by side set up but so far we love it. The black stainless finish is beautiful and cleans very easy.

                  This is the very first fridge we have had to buy and it was a great buy. My only issue is the water drips a couple times after getting water and there is no drip tray. Also, our water shoots out like a jet.

                      This is a great refrigerator. It's quiet and has an Energy Star rating. Plus, it comes with plenty of storage space and some wonderful extra features. The in-door water and ice dispenser works beautifully.

                        We just purchased this beautiful looking refrigerator and within 6 months of having it we already started experiencing problems with the refrigerator side not cooling. The display reads a certain temperature but inside does not feel cold. Have had to reset it several times and then shows actual temp. No wonder why my food kept going bad in such a short period of time. This is a new fridge and shouldn't be having these issues already. Its been just a little over a year now and we are still having these same issues. All of the media and appliances we purchase are Samsung because of the design and quality but this one by far has been a huge disappointment. Now I'm stuck with a refrigerator that doesn't work and such an inconvenience after spending that much money.

                            After 22 years we had to buy a refigerator. I went looking for a standard freezer on top but fell in love with this one. I was easy to install and was cold in about an hour! It has tons of room and we love the ice and H2O in the door!!!

                              Pros: Layout is good, runs quietly, exterior finish is excellent and easy to keep clean Cons: Only able to adjust shelves in 4 positions, and those 4 positions do not make any sense as far as giving you a variety of shelf space. Drawers do not slide easily; especially the bottom one over the filter which you have to finesse and fight to close each time. Water dispenses cool but not cold water. Controls are not that user friendly, and adjusting the temperature is quirky and impossible to understand without the instructions. There is no information on any of the included paperwork giving the details of the water filter or where to purchase one.
