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

    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

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.

Nice, but not quite as expected

By 

from East Stroudsburg, PA 18302, USA

Comments about Samsung RS261 Black Side-By-Side Refrigerator:

A very nice looking refrigerator. Haven't had it long, so it is too soon to comment on the performance. I am a little disappointed in the interior lighting -- it is not as bright as what I had in my old refrigerator. And, although this refrigerator has a couple of more cubic feet, I cannot fit as much on the door shelves. The refrigerator is black, but gets fingermarks on it. Would have been nice if it came in a smudge proof black. I appreciate that I could find a side-by-side model with an in-the-door water/ice dispenser.

Cons

    Comments about Samsung RS261 Black Side-By-Side Refrigerator:

    The refrigerator has LED lighting inside which is unique and plenty of freezer room because the ice maker is in the door not on on a shelf like most other refrigerators. I think this model is a good buy for people on a budget and it looks nice and is plenty big for most households. But, it lacks other features that other refrigerator's offer such as spill proof shelves and pull out shelves for easy cleaning and the lighting doesn't extend all the way to the bottom crisper drawers making it hard to see their contents. And the front control panel is black in color which makes it hard to see the controls without sufficient light in the room. Plus the water in the door doesn't have a water tray or drain to catch dripping water from the dispenser so it drips down the front of the refrigerator. Overall, I'd give it a C+ rating.

            The Ice and Water in the door are a great feature ! Ice maker works great . The Digital Temp gauge on the door is a terrific feature that gives you peace of mind knowing both Freezer and the Refrigerator Temps ! The Big Bonus is the Shelves on the doors are very sturdy and wide. We had another model and constantly had shelves break . I would recommend this Samsung model to anyone

                this refrigerator meets all my needs. My kitchen is not real large but it fits in well with my other appliances and cabinets. My old refrigerator was another brand and because of the way my counter is built the refrigerator door would not open back all the way. This new one is perfect and both doors work perfectly with my counter arrangement.

                  Overall I like the refrigerator. I only have one issue, the water coming from the dispenser in the door is not very cold. In fact I would describe the water as barely being cool. Overall I do like the design and layout.

                        I really like most everything about this refrigerator. It looks great on the inside and out. The lighting is fabulous on the inside. The freezer seems much bigger with the ice in the door. One small downfall is the somewhat loud humming noise that comes from it.
