Samsung RS261 Stainless Steel Side-By-Side Refrigerator, Model RS261MDSS

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

My wife and I purchased this product after reviewing refrigerators using Consumer's Report. It is a very good refrigerator and I only have one minor complaint so far. I especially like the light inside the unit as it uses LEDs which gives a brighter light. I rated the design as a 4 instead of a 5 because the one minor con to this refrigerator is that the display panel is not backlit to show the touch buttons when it's used in a darkened room. That is, at night when I go into my kitchen to get a glass of water (with ice) I do not turn on the overhead light. I have a light on over the stove which provides light. But in looking at the display panel all you see are the ice and water icons lit. Which means I have to bend over to see where the touch buttons are located on the display panel. It would have been so much easier to put a small LED behind the buttons so you could see the display regardless of the room lighting.

I gave up on my older model of this design of refrigerator, the Samsung RS267TDPN/XAA. It kept on icing up, and a repair would have to be made each time. I had to pay for repairs for the same thing 3 times within a year, and I had to unplug it and open the doors the night before the tech came each time so it would defrost. This was very inconvenient because I'd have to put my food in coolers and hope nothing spoiled. The refrigerator was only 3 years old. I liked the design and features of that one so much that I ended up buying virtually the same refrigerator. I have had it for 2 days now, and already, 2 or 3 of the LED lights in the tower on the refrigerator side are not operational and it seems to be noisier than the old one. So we will see. I did purchase the extended warranty on this one, but if there are problems other problems early on other than the lighting, I will return the refrigerator to the store and will never buy another Samsung. Obviously, the lights will have to be fixed now. If I have to power it down the night before the repair, as with the other fridge...so that the tech can remove the plastic cover, I will also return the unit and never buy Samsung again.

                  I got this end of last year. In general it has been good easy to see what we have a able to store all our food. Ice and water dispensing very convenient We have however had to get it serviced this month (less tha 6 months) as the internal cooling fan was making a noise caused by ice build up. The service was very smooth and they replaced a part with a new designed part free of charge. However it was a little concerning that this was needed on such a new product.

                        A drip tray would have been nice on the door. Water sometimes drips on the floor if it builds up on shelf. No noticeable motor noise or issues at 2 months. Happy for now.

                        We grew tired of other brands with freezer hogging non reliable ice makers and inconsistent temp control. The Samsung with the in door ice maker opens up the freezer space dramatically. This model also holds temps rock steady. Pleased with our purchase.
