I wanted a big refrigerator and I did not want to foreit space to an ice maker and water dispenser in the door. This is an extra that I can do without. I wanted the refrigerator space, not space for water. I am all about functionality; come on--open the drawer for ice and the faucet for water! This refrigerator is perfect. It is big with lots of storage space for a reasonable price. The LED lights are bright and do not throw off any heat. There are adjustable glass shelves and bins on the doors. One of the shelves is a split shelf; it slides down so that tall soda bottles or a turkey on a platter can fit. The designers have made the unit sleek and neat. Easy to clean--no grooves or small corners for food or spills to collect. The doors are easy to open and close, if you forget, there is a sound that alerts you to the door ajar. The stanless steel goes with goes with my GE Profile stove; it is the same shade--different handles but well worth the savings. The freezer has a slide out drawer with an automatic ice maker and a split rack for large frozen pizzas to stand upright. I shopped around and couldn't find a 29 cubic foot size without the ice dispenser. This was the only one. My old refrigerator lasted 20 years; I hope that this one is as reliable. So far the whole family loves it.

We wanted a large, french door, stainless steel fridge, without a useless ice dispenser taking up needed room. We loved this Samsung model. The first day, we were ecstatic. Great aesthetics, very roomy, well laid out, solid build, LED lighting is excellent, and it modernized look of our kitchen. Then next am, all wifes vegs/fruit was frozen in fridge and some ice in liquids. Fridge was set on 38F, freezer on -2F. I have a calibrated temp probe, fridge temp was 28F top shelf, 29-30f on bottom. Freezer read -1F to -3F, so freezer temp was correct. After reading on net, I cleared everything off top shelf permanently, unplugged fridge for 15 mins to reset, and turned freezer temp to 6f and fridge temp to 44F. Next am, the new vegetables were frozen again, made spinach chips out of spinach...again temp ranged from 30 to 33F. I did not mind milk being 34F...but wife was livid b/c of frozen veggies/fruit. Tried reset again, and turned fridge to warmest setting, 46, freezer to warmest setting, and deli warmest tray setting 41f. Again, next 2 days, temps still 30-33F in fridge and cantaloupe, etc still frozen solid, despite setting on 46 and temp 46 according to fridge sensor. Freezer temps are correct. When I went back to store where I bought it, they said another customer just had same issue. So we ended up paying more for something we liked less. still have Samsung for next 2 weeks til they can switch....unless the wife takes a bat to it first. Had the refrigerator worked properly, would have given it 5 stars. Would have tried another of same model, but with some other person with same issue...we reluctantly switched.

Does not last - lot's of issues
Comments about Samsung RFG293 Stainless Platinum Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:
I have had this fridge for 3 years now and it has had several issues. We had heard very good things about Samsung fridges and did a lot of research before buying one. This one looks great. has very few additional features that are prone to breaking. Over the last 3 years we have had several issues: The freezer door handle broke off, with regular use. The handle is held in place by a small plastic part that is way to thin for the heavy door / handle and tends to break. Apparently a common issue. The ice maker stopped working after about 2 years. For a fridge that costs this much. I would it expect to work better. My previous basic fridge worked for 15 years without any issues.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

so far, so good
from phoenix, AZ
The size and layout of this fridge is great! Since I cook a lot and keep lots of fresh food, I wanted a big fridge. This one is so pretty but mainly I love the organization of this fridge. I want to buy food just to store in it. My parents and friends were impressed with the storage space. The freezer is very convenient. I am having an issue with the sliding bar on the left door which is not aligned...so we will see how that gets resolved. I did not want a water dispenser nor did I hook up the ice maker. This is my first Samsung product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Expected more from Samsung product
from Fayetteville, NC
I own several Samsung products and I am very satisfied with all but the refrigerator. I've had it for 3 years. The icemaker stopped working. The front dents very easily, Water drips from the dispenser when getting ice. There are only two adults using the unit so it is not used that much. We have always taken care of our appliances but the refrigerator has disapointed us.
LOVE my samsung refrigerator!!
We purchased this in 2010 and 3 years later I'm STILL in love, and would purchase all over again! I have not had ANY issues at all, and will tell you if you are thinking about one, DO IT!! You will not regret it!! :)

We purchased our Samsung refrigerator 18 months ago to replace a23 year old one. We are very please with the dual temperature control. Food stays fresh so much longer. It is energy efficient and runs very quiet.

Good product , could be better
from Costa Mesa, Ca.
This is a good refrigerator. I give it high praise for it's sleek looks, cooling ability, temperature control and the ease of changing the filter. It does have some design / engineering problems that keep it from being really good.The platinum finish doors do not show fingerprints. However the door metal is to thin and wimpy. We have never had a refrigerator dent so easily. We now have numerous unattractive dents in our expensive refrigerator after less than 2 years. Also, one of the shelf supports and the snack drawer pivot mechanism were designed and manufactured poorly and broke. Hopefully these concerns will be addressed in future Samsung refrigerators.

About Me Casual Cook
I love the lighting inside the fridge and freezer, it's very bright and easy to find things. we don't have the ice maker hooked up yet so i can't comment on that part. the only negative is the doors are very firm to open so if you have any glass bottles in the door they always rattle around and sometimes seem like they can fall out, we moved all glass bottles to the main part of the fridge but they still clink together when you open and close the doors. I still really like the huge space and large drawers and would buy it again.
samsung appliance rock!
from wilds of Michigan
I have many Samsung appliance, and they dont let me down. Keeps food cold, freezer food frozen, easy to adjust and easy to clean! Which my kids spill alot and never quite seem to get it all wiped up. Own for 2yrs, no problems except for one small thing i need to check out. Ice is forming in freezer on the bottom, like under the 2nd pull out large drawer, i haven't troubleshoot it yet but we do not have the ice maker hooked up due to well water so i will check it out and prob. be able to adjust something. But other than this, not one problem, got it in black and easier to keep clean than the white or stainless. So much room. Meat and veggie drawers humidity controls still working, you do have to keep an eye on them with the kids because the adjusters for the humidity control can be moved easily by them getting stuff out and in and then drag things over the little sliders. Small price to pay for your veggies to last longer esp. living where veggies are hard to get sometimes. the pull out drawers in freezer make it easy on back! The layout makes it easier for shorter people to reach things on the top and in the back .
