Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size with a Great Price!! I purchased this a few months ago for a friend. Appliance Connection was a dream to work with. They walked me through everything and kept me well informed regarding delivery. I was so excited to find a quality refrigerator in a counter depth that wasn't ridiculously priced. I am extremely pleased with this product in every way!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Only three months old We were excited to get this refrigerator. The way it was displayed had us excited. Not even two months old the handle on the refrigerator started chipping/peeling away. There are chips in several areas and it is a white frig! very disappointed. I called Samsung and they are sending me new handles, but I can bet in two months the same thing will happen again and then what?? They wont replace it. Second thing frost is accumulating on the pull out draw of the freezer.. Customer service said this should not happen. Very disappointed. I would be happy if they upgraded my refrigerator to another model. Very disappointed no more samsung for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful counter-depth at a great price We searched everywhere for a counter-depth stainless steel fridge that wouldn't break the bank. We found this one and couldn't be happier. The ice maker works great too!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Noise exactly after 2 years like many others A noise started coming exactly after two years, it was the defrost system failing, ice getting buildup at back panel inside the fridge and fan blades touching it and making loud noise. As soon as we open door fan stops spinning and noise goes away. After two years I checked multiple reviews on google and found this is One of the samsung traditional problems that they do not want to fix.They also just added this issue in there trouble-shooting guide which ends with call a samsung repair technician. No more samsung for me, I just returned two Samsung 50in/55in plasma TV's with noise issues. Samsung loves noise stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value I am happy that I found this fridge. I needed a smaller counter depth french door style fridge, and this Samsung one fits perfectly in my kitchen cabinet. There wasn't that many choices, but I am happy and have no complaints so far about the product. In the beginning, the fridge made some weird noise in the back, but then I learned from the manual, that there has to be enough space in the back for air circulation. I moved the fridge to the front a little bit (it has wheels, so it's very easy to move it around, but not too easy that it will move everytime we push it), and the weird noise went instantly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hate this fridge! This fridge had been noisy right from the start but now after 1 1/2 years it is just getting louder. The ice maker never quit making ice when the bin was full, which I thought was just how it worked until I read reviews stating this is a known issue. Another known issue with Samsung, water pooling under and in the crisper drawers. Of course, this began a couple months after the warranty ended. This fridge is small for two people. The shelves do not accommodate tall condiment bottles. I will not purchase another Samsung fridge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fridge with one Minor Flaw This specific model Samsung fridge was installed in my motorcoach in place of a Norcold RV fridge which is a fire trap and hundreds of RV's have burned because of Norcold's irresponsibility. The fridge fit into the same space with only a modification of the opening height by 7 inches. The ONLY flaw of this fridge is that the heater clips which are located on each of the two cooling coils was built TOO small so the Defrost Drain Line eventually freezes up which causes water and ice to accumulate in the crispers and on the bottom of the fridge and freezer compartments. The fix is to have Samsung remove the small Heater Clips and install the larger Heater Clips on each cooling coil. I am a very Happy Camper now that I have a Great Fridge to keep my food cold and frozen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best refrigerator for my needs I installed this refrigerator in my motorhome to replace the problematic gas adsorption one that came in it. The Samsung was one of the few units that would fit and the only one with the features I wanted. So far it has been great. We now get 50% more storage space, more ice, and very consistent cooling. Only two nitpicks are that the doors show fingerprints badly (stainless steel) and the shelves only have a few different positions. Measured energy use and it uses 1/5 the power of the original.
