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

    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.

    The best I've had.....

    By 

    from Saint Peters, MO, USA

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

    I've only had it two weeks but I must admit it's the best refrigerator I've owned. It's very stylish and is very quiet in normal operation. The only noise I hear is during the dropping of the ice after being made. I'm okay with this because i really like the in-door ice maker which allows for more storage. It may not hold as much ice as I'm used to but has not been a problem so far. Both sides allow customizing the placement of the shelfs to suit your needs. The display is also very nice and has a read-out of the temperatures which haven't varied by even one degree. I'm really happy with it and can't really come-up with any negatives.

        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!

                • scratches EASILY

                Best Uses

                  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.
