Had a little trouble getting it inside the house due to it's large size but luckily I hired knowledgeable delivery guys and after taking down the fridge's doors and door brackets it went in without any harm done. The fridge cooled down in less than a day so I transfered all the foodstuff and used the increased cold buttons on both the fridge and freezer which helped a lot. The only problem I have encountered so far is that pressing the panel buttons works only after a lot of finger twisting, moving side to side or pressing on and off continually which is a minor flaw in my opinion. When leaving the door open for a while I like to use the cool down button so I installed a small thermometer in both the fridge and the freezer so I don't overdo it and save energy (the Power Save is on all the time to save $$ on electricity). Finally I like to use a little liquid car wax once every few months because I live close to the beach and salt spray causes rust in everything metallic around here.

I never write reviews but... This is the second one (same exact model) in just a couple of months and it has been "repaired" three times now and still the icemaker is not working. Even when the ice is turned off it is still trying, but unable to dump the cubes and is very loud doing so. The icemaker was replaced, the circuit board, the water valve and it's still broken. When the ice did work it came out crushed even though it's on the cubed mode. Both units had the same problem and both had the flashing display with an error code (that was unexplainable) come on randomly for an hour or so and then go back to normal display. The leveling of the feet is a really strange design, only one single wheel in the middle, and the back legs have no abilty to be adjusted. It is so sloped back that it had to be propped up with a 5/8" piece of wood and still it's tilted with plenty of slope to have the doors close on their own. It's really too bad because otherwise I was happy with everthing else. I dare try for a third one...

Overall good product
Comments about Samsung 30 Cu Ft White Side By Side Refrigerator:
We love our fridge and freezer side-by-side. High quality, performs well, great inside lighting, keeps everything cold. Only downside is ice-maker broke at 1 year mark. Warranty covered it. A little wary of ice-maker but overall we are pleased.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Like this fridge
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.
Top notch in every way

Samsung side-by-side has maintenance problems
from San Antonio, TX
The name 'Samsung' fell off of the refrigerator in less than a year. The black plastic panel covering the control features fell off after 18 months and will not stick back on.

This is the biggest model we could find and it works great!
not up to standard of other Samsung product
The shelves are not adjustable so it is not very practical as all grocery items are not the same size. the ice maker is very small and takes 24 to 30 hours to fill up . also the ice dispencer has to long of a delay.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Design and Quality Need Lots of Improvements
from Charlotte, NC
I rarely review products I bought. However, since this refrigerator design and quality are so poor that I need to alert the company and other customers. From an engineer's perspective, there are major design problems with the ice-bin/ice-crusher: the ice crusher does not work consistently; over 90% of the time the "crushed ice" came out as "whole cubes" (under the "crush" command on the electronic panel). Secondly, reattaching the ice bin to the freezer's door is very user unfriendly; you have to align the crusher's mechanism from the ice bin 90-degree with respect to the motor's mechanism on the door (how many customers want/wish to read deep into the manual to find out this instruction???!!!). Thirdly, the refrigerator/freezer doors are supported by plastic parts, that are short lived (easy to break time to time) that prevent the doors to close/seal tightly. Moreover, the shelves with covers are prong to be cracked/broken should you forget to push them all the way in.
