  • 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

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:

        I wanted to purchase a fridge that had all the fancy features, had enough space inside the appliance to fulfill the daily and weekly grind for a family of five, and of course it had to give the sleek look of a new modern appliance. That's why I chose the black Samsung , side-by-side ice making fridge. It took me a long time before I made the final decision when I was researching which one to choose. This one came up on top of the list. The only downfall after a few months is that the ice crusher seems to spit out the ice all over, shooting out beyond the glass, at times. Another small thing that I would mention is that you do hear some strange noises coming out from the big fridge. We just moved in into our new house, but we love it, the best fridge we've ever had, and would recommend it for the right price. Adam O.A.

                              The lighting is very poor. In the store it looks great but as soon as you add food containers the lighting from the back of the refrigerator and freezer are blocked .. Very poor design. The indicators where you select water, ice, fridge and lighting is so faded into the dark glass that you have some difficulty reading. I made a mistake, maybe these are things others should consider before buying. I have numerous Samsung product, all of which are great except for this refrigerator.

                                We purchased the white version of this fridge to match our existing appliances. The compressor is very quiet. However, the ice maker is heard when dropping ice and when the water line refills the ice tray. Many people have complained about this noise in other reviews of this model. The sound only last about 5 seconds and is no louder than our previous Whirlpool side-by-side model made when going through the same processes. The LED lighting is nice. It is very bright when there is no food in the fridge (i.e., when viewing the floor model at the appliance store). The LED lighting gives the fridge a modern look on the inside. The overall lighting in the refrigerator and freezer compartments diminishes as you add more food on the shelving. This is because all of the lighting is on the back wall and tends to get blocked as you fill the refrigerator and freezer with food. It would be nice if there was lighting for the bottom halves of both the refrigerator side and the freezer side. This would make it easier to see inside the bottom drawers. The issue with the lighting is not a deal breaker. I would still purchase this model again. We have a family of 5 and there is plenty of room for our groceries! The shelves are adjustable as are the door shelves on the refrigerator side door. There is a gallon sized shelve on the door as well. The other shelves on the door will not hold a gallon sized container. We like the electronic controls on the freezer door panel. There are settings for light, crushed ice, cubed ice and water. The refrigerator also has an alarm that sounds (a chime sound) when the door remains open too long (helpful if you have little ones who may not close the door). The temperature of the freezer and the refrigerator displays each time you open a door or get water/ice. This is a nice feature and it reassures you of the current temperature in both compartments. The ice dispenses slowly (1-2 cubes at a time) but it still does the job. Water dispenses quickly. We have had no problems with the water dispenser "dripping" as many people have mentioned in other reviews. I made a point to follow directions and run water through the new filter when setting up the fridge. We love our fridge so far! It looks great in our kitchen and keeps accurate and even food temperatures on both the freezer and refrigerator sides. I would recommend this model to anyone looking for an affordable, functional and modern looking refrigerator.
