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 RFG293HARS 29 Cu Ft Stainless Steel French Door 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

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.

from Michigan, USA
So far this is the best refrigerator we have ever owned.
Very happy with this fridge, tons of space and its well laid out. only problem i have with it is the ice maker is a little slow and doesn't hold a lot of ice before it gets full, just a small thing but enough to take a star away
Very spacious refrigerator and freezer

The doors don't close by themselves. Tall botles of liquids need to be put on the door shelves.It is very spatious. The ice maker is somewhat noisy, but it works well.The delivery was great--they arrived on time and worked very hard to get it through a very small doorway.

Great Value, Extremely Functional
from Woodbury, MN
We purchased this refrigerator to replace a 20 year-old side by side model. In taking up a similar amount of space in the kitchen we doubled our usable space and we couldn't be happier. This is our second Samsung refrigerator (had purchased one five years ago at our previous residence) and have been very satisfied with the quality and features. It is also extremely quiet--can hardly hear it; as well as energy efficient--our electricity bill dropped significantly after replacing our old fridge with this. We opted for a model without an ice maker on front (more expensive and more opportunities for things to go wrong) and have not regretted it--icemaker in bottom freezer works great and we get our own filtered water out of the tap.

Adds a richness to my kitchen...................................................
When the french style refrigerators first came out I wasn't at all impressed with the freezer drawer on the bottom. When we started looking for a new fridge I loved the room that the french style models had to offer. This Samsung was one of the largest fridges I could find for the price. It's huge inside and even after a shopping trip I still have room left over. I love being able to put four gallons of milk in the doors and still have all the free shelf space. The half shelf that slides back is perfect too! And I have to admitt the freezer is great. I especially love the top sliding drawer for the smaller things. This refrigerator was an excellent purchase and I would recommend it to anyone!
