Overall this is a great fridge. We are very happy with our Samsung appliances, we now have their stove, microwave and this fridge and will likely get the dishwasher soon. This fridge is huge inside, but the outside dimensions are almost the same as our old fridge. It is a bit taller, but it's the standard height for this category of fridge today and it may be a bit deeper, but it can be pushed back so that it is only two inches from the wall. It has a very clean back. Our old fridge had close to the same dimensions outside, but when we moved all of items from the old fridge to this one, it looked fairly empty. The old fridge was between 1/2 and 3/4 full, but the Samsung with the same items the was less than half full. We have no issues with space now. This fridge looks and feels well made inside and out. We have had it for a month and are very happy. Below are a list of things I would like to see improved. 1) The ice maker seems a bit slow and dispensing ice takes longer than I would expect. This might be a common speed, but I have experienced faster icemaker and ice dispensers in fridges in this price range. 2) The ice holder is not easy to remove and reattach. It's not terrible, but I have seen better designs. This the the only part that feels cheap. 3) I wish fridge makers would stick with a color for the sides and top of stainless fridges. All other stainless appliances seem to come with black sides and everything that is not stainless, but fridges swap between black and grey, but few offer the same model with a grey or black option. This one only seems to come in grey and we would have preferred black because there is an exposed side and all of our other stainless appliances are black where they are not stainless. 4) I would like another door bin. If you do not have tall items, another door bin would fit as is, but if you have taller items, the door would need more grooves for bins and there is room for more grooves. 5) The drawer handles are at the bottom of the drawer rather than close to the top. This looks nice, but you have to bend further for each drawer. 6) The bottom drawer in the fridge and freezer stick out to provide more space, but leave no room for a bin o the door at the bottom. They made use of the space in the door by putting in a small bin. It is actually large enough for four normal sized salad dressing bottles or fewer dressing bottles and more other items like bacon bits and krutons containers. The problem is that it is hard to get to, so my suggestion would be for these to move forward when the door is opened. This could cause more issues than it provides usefulness, so it may not be possible. 7) Our old fridge had a drawer between the shelves which was nice and at least in the past was a pretty common feature. This fridge has all three drawers at the bottom. To be fair, it would be more difficult to access items on a shelf that was under one of these drawers. The shelves are deep and the drawers use as much of the space as possible. 8) The drawers are a little difficult to remove, but I am not sure they could do much about this. I would like the doors to not stick past the side of the fridge when open, but that would make the drawer problem worse. FYI: It seems like there are two sizes for standard fridges, larger 24 cu ft. and up and which are about 69" to 70" tall and the less large which usually are less than 24 cu ft. and are not as tall. The old fridge was 10 years old and in the larger category, but that standards have changed and the newer fridges are 1 to 3 inches taller.

Had this 30 cu. ft. side by side for a little over a month now, tempature in refrigerator side won't go below 40 degrees no matter where its set. Had serviceman here four times ( two to look, two to replace parts,(had to order parts), total of four service calls. They replaced the evaporator fan, main board and several sensors ! Had to remove food from the refrigerator so they could get to parts. Not fun! It still won't go below 40 degrees even though it is set at 34. Has many design flaws, lights look great until you put food in, need flash light to see what's in the freezer, lights in the back don't illuminate the food in the front of freezer at all. Same with the refrigerator side. Lights should have been at the top. All drawers, which are at the bottom, pull out from the bottom, the normal tendancy is to open them from the top. Limited shelf adjustment, no room for tall bottles (even a 12 ounce beer bottle, unless you take out the wine rack. All tall items must be stored in the door. No adjustment for door shelves, takes two hands to work butter/dairy compartment , lid won't stay up by itself. No place for eggs. No butter dish included. This is a huge refrigerator, weighs ove 300lbs. but only has one wheel in the center for movability, almost inpossible to move away from the wall, service man had to lift front end up by the doors to get it to clear a 1/16" floor protector.

This product will leave you thirsty for ice !
from Ohio, USA
Comments about Samsung 30 Cu Ft Black Side By Side Refrigerator:
Model # RSG307AARS/XAA Serial # I85043BD700616T We are a family of 3. I the father use the majority of the ice . And now I have to purchase bagged ice . The ice maker is slow ! Did I say the ice maker is "SLOW" !!! This is a feature that is essential for any family. This model has a feature also that you can speed up the ice production . You turn it on and it only lasts so many hours then automatically returns back to its normal settings . This will increase ice production. But did I say the the ice maker is "SLOW" !! On the lack of ice I would not buy this refrigerator !!!!!!!! If I had known how slow the ice maker is . It would not be in my home (if I only knew). Samsung knew that this was an issue in the design phase. I ask you why is the feature to speed up ice production with in the electronics ? And if you are a big family ; buy stock in retail ice ! Putting aside the lack of ice Samsung did do a nice job of use of space within the refrigerator.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great design, one flaw
from Archdale, NC, USA
Overall this is a good unit. The only flaw, which is kind of big, is that if you keep the water valve pressure turned to a normal level it makes a really loud jackhammer sound when the water is entering the unit. You have to basicaly turn down the water flowing into the unit to almost off which it turn causes it to take forever to get water out of it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Nice design - Icemaker does not work
from Melbourne, FL
like the design but the icemaker has not worked properly since purchased. Have called support a few times, was advised to change the filter as well as reset the icemaker. I have done the reset every 2-4 weeks when it stops fuctioning and it would start up again. Now it does not function at all. I have had to buy bags of ice to supplement the malfunctioning icemaker
This refrigerator has everything including a beverage holder and night light..
from Tampa, FL, USA
After living with this product for several months, we can say doing our homework paid off. It has performed flawlessly. It has survived power outages, brown outs, and power blips which killed out last unit. The layout for food storage is very efficient and fits our lifestyle perfectly. We knew ice production would be slow (the cube tray is half size). But so far we have not run out at any time and it gives us way more freezer room. The interior is especially easy to clean as well as the stainless steel door skin. However, being high quality stainless steel, magnets will not stick. But they will stick to the side panels. If you are used to hearing your refrigerator running as we were, you will need some time to get acquainted with its' dead silent operation. At least a quick look at the front panel and the night light will let you know that it is powered up. Last but not least, the door handles are easy on the hands and far enough apart that fingers do not get pinched. This refrigerator will not disappoint.
I love my fridge. To be honest and transparent, it is very high quality. The looks, the lighting, the feel of it is amazing. It has more than enough space for a family of 4. It is really easy to clean and just by the way it looks you really will find the motivation to keep it spotless. The refrigeration is very consistent and better than expected. The water dispenser is quick and seamless. Now the only thing that I would say is not on par with the fridge is the ice maker. It really works great but for the luxury that this amazing machine has the ice maker can be better. 80% of the ice dispensing no matter if its crushed or cubed, it will come out crushed. I called Samsung to replace the ice maker and hands down impressive customer service. They knew immediately what I was talking about and replaced it at no cost because of the warranty, still have issue with ice maker and I really think it s the ice maker desing with no fix. Don't let it be a deal breaker because this fridge is awesome!!!

from Wichita, KS, USA
We really like this fridge except for some early problems with the ice maker. It went out early on but the warranty covered it and it has worked ever since. Lots of drawer and shelf space. Lots of space in the door compartments.
This Refrigerator is outstanding
from Los Angeles, CA, USA
I have had my Samsung 30 cu ft side by side Refigerator for almost 2 years. Everyday I look at it and love the choice I made by purchasing this particualr model. It is very simple , but elegant. The design inside both the Refrigerator and Freezer is amazing and the storage is excellent. I love the outside Water and Ice on the Door as well. And I love that I get a reminder every 6 months on the door that tells me it is time to change the water filter. the interior lighting is also great. There isn't anything negative about this product. I love it.
Plenty of room nice and bright. I will recommend this line of products.
Great product but the drawers are a little quirky
from Inwood, WV, USA
Overall I love this refrigerator, but the bins are a little quirky. The openings look like they are on top but the pull is on the bottom. Everyone who uses our appliance always laughs and then says how strange it looks like it is on top but you open from the bottom. Also the door bins would be awesome if they were adjustable due to the short size of the shelves, it is often hard to put large items throughout the fridge. No worries it is still a great refrigerator, it would just be awesome if a few shelves and door bins were adjustable. I would have thought a refrigerator that large would have been easy to get items in and out of. Thank you for your time!
