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.

This is our first side by side refrigerator and so far so good. Wasn't to hard adapting to the style and looks good with our other appliances.

from Lincoln, ne
Refrigerator had great features. Would definitely recommend product.
This is my second Samsung Refrigerator as I lost the first to a divorce. An excellent wiser quiet unit.
Good, Not Great
Great design, lots of room. Makes funny noise after freezer door is opened and closed.
from Deshler, Ohio
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.
Love our new refrigerator
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.
Side By Side
from Denver, CO, USA
Refrigerator has lots of room and great door space. Lots of ice capacity. Water in water dispenser could be a little colder. Sometimes a little noisy when recalibrating itself during the day.
Nice, but not quite as expected
from East Stroudsburg, PA 18302, USA
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.
from Huntington Beach CA
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.
