I am so glad Samsung makes a higher end fridge in the 33" class. Unfortunately my kitchen is laid out such that a 33" fridge is as big as i can go without some major mods that i don't want to do. When i went fridge shopping i was faced with some challenges to find a fridge i really liked. I really did not want another side by side as i hate the layout, french doors was what i really wanted. I also wanted ice and water in the door and what i have found is the Samsung was the only one where that didn't sacrifice the entire left door to get it. Overall i am super pleased with this unit. I have not had the ice maker or water dispenser issues as some have reviewed here mine work perfectly. The layout is fantastic and it holds a lot more than you would think for its size. My old side by side fridge was a 24cu/ft and what filled it to a disorganized mess fit easily with room to spare in this Samsung. The layout is a huge part of that. The crisper's work well and keep my fruits and veggies fresher than my old fridge did for a lot longer. The freezer layout is great and it also seems to hold a lot more than my old one did. The snack drawer is also a really slick idea, i mainly use it for cold cuts, cheeses and other snack items like yogurt. The LED lighting is also very bright and you can see everything. The night light on the left door is also a really nice touch. The controls are easy to use and easy to set the temperatures i wanted. It also has a power cool mode that works great if you need it. A good example would be the freezer to freeze a bunch of fresh meat after a run to the warehouse store or on the fridge if you leave the door open for too long. I got mine in Stainless and everyone that comes to my house gives me compliments on how nice it looks. If i had to pick anything to gripe about there would be one thing and its very, very minor. In the snack drawer there is an adjustable divider to keep items separated. While it does adjust easily and keeps things somewhat organized there is no way to lock it in place where you want. What i have found is it moves every time the drawer is opened or closed and all the items its organizing shift about. I did fabricate a quick fix with some rubber and a few zip ties that is working great so solve this very minor thing. Even with my minor gripe i give the fridge 10/10, its really that good. I am super glad i spent the extra money on such a nice unit.

Just had a bottom freezer refrigerator give out after 13 years and thought I would try another brand. Samsung had a good repair record on the website associated with the appliance dealer. We have never had an ice and water dispenser on the door and that is the principal reason my spouse opens the refrigerator, so it seemed like a good idea. However, that appears to be the only way to get ice from the refrigerator unless you want to take the whole ice container out while juggling both "French doors" open in the process. The "Flex Zone" drawer also seemed like a good idea as I grew to love the large bottom drawer inside my old refrigerator. I could make a salad in its serving bowl and tuck it in the compartment for an hour while I prepared the remaining dinner items. The Samsung drawer features a device to separate the drawer into 4 sections, but there is no way to anchor it to hold those sections permanently. Each time the drawer opens, the contents of the sections roll or shift so that the items/sections don't stay as you've put them. For example, the meat at the back slides into the cheese section at the front, and any beer bottles that have been placed, just roll around. The refrigerator shelves have a slight lip around the edges, so items placed at the rear or sides are slightly off kilter. If jars or bottles are placed level, you lose an inch all the way around. For example, a carton of eggs is manageable, but bottles are unstable. The shelves are off the back wall at least an inch to accommodate the cooling mechanism (?) anyway, so now the interior space is even smaller. As far as I can tell, the shelves have no center support so cannot be used independently, such as a step up or down on one half or the other. I had to remove the shelf below the ice maker because I couldn't get milk and half and half containers on that side with the shelf in place. The bottom space on the other side is used for seltzer and juice and a few tall items like ketchup that won't fit elsewhere in the fridge. The convenience of having ice/water accessibility on the outside means you must give up a lot of interior door space. The vegetable and fruit bins won't accommodate all my produce so delicate items like lettuce have to go on the top shelf. Lastly, I don't like having the "French doors" (two doors to the main compartment). One door is enough. Three things I like about this unit over my old refrigerator are: 1) the bottom of the freezer is actually the bottom. The old refrigerator had a grill at the bottom through which food dropped (nasty!), 2) the bell rings if the door has been left open, and 3) a filter indicator light is present to remind one that the filter needs changing.

Efficient use of space!!!
The lower drawer is great for easy access to frequently used items without opening the regular doors and wasting electricity!!!
I like having the freezer on the bottom. There is more room in top and bottom than the side by side that I owned previously. I like that the water dispenser area is larger for taller glasses too. Very happy with it so far. I also love the LED lighting.
The Ice Maker Has to Be The Worst
from Florida, USA
Overall this refrigerator is average; we enjoy the middle drawer; the over all quality is good, however the ice maker is the worst!!! Have had 3 repairmen who spent a total of about 2 hours working on the ice maker. I just believe it is just a design problem or poor quality product (ice maker).
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
4th door is awsome!!
from birdsboro, pa
Love this fridge having 4 doors is really nice!!!!
from New Hope, AL 35760, USA
The Black stainless steel Looks great and the features are out of this world. Still learning the new Refrigerator but so far so good.
Big improvement over side-by-side
Replaced our old side-by-side with this refrigerator. About the same cubic feet, but space is much more efficient. Placed all the items from my over-crowded side-by-side into this new one and I still have room to spare.
Love this refrigerator! Tons of space, great design, well laid out. We replaced our old (slightly) smaller, freezer on top/'fridge on bottom unit.....this is larger and we love the 'fridge on top and the freezer on bottom. Ice and water on door is also a nice feature (don't know how we lived without it this long!!) Also really like the chiller drawer...great idea. We are thoroughly pleased.

Better than expected
from Lindenhurst, NY (Long island)
I love my new French door refrigerator, especially all of the different compartments in the fridge and freezer, and the in-door water/ice dispenser. The only disappointment is that apparently it is only stainless steel plated , because my multitude of souvenir refrigerator magnets don't stick to it :( Otherwise, I love it, and it also has a very nice look to it.
like the features
from Kentucky, USA
like the deep freezer at the bottom so when u open French doors on fridge u can see everything and the pull out drawer is very handy
