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

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.

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

    This is the second 25.4 side by side from Samsung I have owned. The first was sold with our house after 5 years of use. This newer model has great features as the older model it replaced. The twin cooling towers keep everything cold without freezing in the refrigerator portion. The freezer is just as good, with temperature set at -4 degrees F. The issues I have....the water and ice maker is very noisy. Ice dropping into the bin is normal noise. But the water line has a whine to it when filling glass or ice maker. Also, the counsel definitely needs back lights. Barely can see the counsel at all during daylight or dimmed lighting. Overall a good refrigerator for the money. Very nice looking and very roomy inside. I would recommend.

                  We purchased this product as a replacement for our refrigerator of 18 plus years. We have been very pleased with all the features of the refrigerator and especially like the side by side capability. Both the freezer and refrigerator sides give us ample room for all our storage needs.

                    Replaced a larger 16 yr old. This actually holds almost as much as prior.. Only issue is that door shelves aren't as deep. Other shelves are deeper. Still, very satisfied with this product. Just takes a little rearranging of items.

                        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.
