Energy Star Rated - No

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

    I just replaced my older side by side Samsung with this newer model. PROS: The ice chest is a much better design than the previous Samsung. I love it whenever I open either the freezer door or the fridge door, a read out on the front shows the current temperature of both, and a very pleasant alarm jingles if a door is open to long. The LED Lighting all down the center is wonderful. The new one is also Energy Star rated, and my previous one was not. Easy to access ice & water in the door. Very quite running. CONS: The levelers are only on the front, however, one full side needed to be raised to make level and there are no level adjustments on the rear. The door shelves are not as deep as they were in my older model, so I had to find a new location for some of the items I always stored inside the door. The interior of the fridge and freezer are both a little smaller than my older model, yet both have the same exterior dimensions. I'm thinking the "Energy Star" has something to do with that. I'd rather have the Energy Star saving me money than a little extra space.

    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.

    Great side by side refrigerator

    By 

    from Abilene, TX, USA

    Comments about Samsung RS261 Stainless Steel Side-By-Side Refrigerator:

    The dual condenser motors so the fridge and freezer don't work so hard is what had me sold on this product. The only drawback are the two handles have play even when adjusted and tightened properly. Fingerprints can easily be noticed on the stainless steel exterior. Wish it was smudge-proof like other refs in this category.

        This product was purchased due to the great service we have had with our 4 year old dishwasher. We looked at other refrigerators and selected this refrigerator due to good features at an attractive price.

            The lighting is horrible! Very dissappointed. It only has that horrible flourecent lighting and only one set at the top of the fridge! It is extremely dark in there even when door is open. Sooo dissappointing! :((( They claim it has beautiful lighting but complete opposite. Joke!

              Comments about Samsung RS261 Stainless Steel Side-By-Side Refrigerator:

              This smooth black exterior seems to scratch easily. I've only had it a couple of days and just sliding a refrigerator magnet over it has caused a scratch. Also, I'm not sure why the model/serial number label is attached with a paper label glued to the left side near the front of the refrigerator. This isn't a counter depth refrigerator and this large white label on black refrigerator really stands out. The serial number is already on the inside of the refrigerator. Why not use a label on the outside that peels off easily with a place to attach it to the owner's manual? But this paper label will be destroyed as I try to remove it with soap, water, or something else, all while trying not to scratch the black finish. Other than that, I'm quite pleased with the space and really like the ice maker in the door. Only time will tell how well it holds up and continues to perform.

                              We really like our new Samsung refrigerator, its performance and temperature control are very good. The LED lights are bright and make it much easier to find things. The three issues we have are: the door mounted ice maker makes a loud knocking noise when trying to loosen the ice from the ice tray, the fact that the water is not cooled nor is it advertised as dispensing lukewarm water, and that where a couple of the shelves are positioned prevent the door from closing all the way if an item sticks just a millimeter or two off the shelf. It closes just enough that the open door alarm doesn't go off, so if you leave the house for work and this happens, expect spoiled food.
