RF261BEAEBC 36" Energy Star Rated French Door Refrigerator with 25.5 cu. ft. Capacity, Internal Filtered Water, Twin Cooling Plus, LED Lighting, Power Freeze & Power Cool in Black is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 141.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Popping noise makes this product difficult to live with From the first day this refrigerator has made a popping noise that sounds like it comes from inside the cabinet. The pops are sporatic and sometimes come in a series and can be rather loud or soft. We can hear most of these pops from our bedroom at the other end of our house. If you are in the kitchen when a loud one occurs, it will startle you. A Samsung Repair Specialist, who was knowledgeable about Samsung refrigerators, came the other day, but other than adjusting the temperature in the freezer, he just explained why these pops were happening. However, he basically led us to believe it could not be fixed and we would have to live with the noise and get use to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value We shopped around for a long time looking for the right balance between price and features and this was a great find for us. The deli tray is awesome and you can set it according to what you have in it at the time. The deli drawer opens completely even when the doors aren't able to open all the way. We squeezed this bad boy into a small space but we can still use all drawers and features which was unique to Samsung. The water inside the unit vs. in the door means you lose NO space inside which was key for us. You can turn the ice maker on and off to suit your needs. It is great, we love it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quality Unacceptable Bought this Samsung 25.5 Cu Ft model RF261BEAESR refrigerator on Nov 12, 2013. This morning July 16, 2016, I came into the kitchen, loud refrigerator noise, opened the refrigerator and freezer doors, freezer contents soft, condensation dripping everywhere. The freezer seems to be broken. There are some nice refrigerator features but after approximately 2 years and 8 months of use, the freezer is broken!!! The lack of quality is unacceptable, have now read other reviews with the same and other issues, will never, never ever buy another Samsung product again, whether it is an appliance, smart phone, electronics, etc. etc. with a Samsung name, period.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent value I shopped many different brands and models before deciding on this French door model. The arrangement of the features matches what I need for ease of use. I like the bottom freezer drawers and it is well lit. It is quite easy to arrange the shelves in the refrigerator section and to find the items I am trying to locate. This model does not come with an ice maker, which I did not want. My water is too hard to make an ice maker an attractive feature, but there is adequate room in the freezer to store a bag of purchased ice. The directions given before delivery made sure that the refrigerator would fit in the space in my kitchen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice refrigerator. Small adjustments could make it a 5 star. It is quiet. Periodicly you will hear the ice maker dump the ice. No big deal. The shelf layout doesn't extend high enough for maximum adjustment. I feel like I could utilize more of the fridge if they did. Some kind of feedback of why the freezer is 15 below zero Fahrenheit. Maybe this setpoint cold be adjustable? Or put it in the manual. It does this when it's low on ice. Wow that makes hard ice cream. When this happened I set the temperature up to 5°F and there wasn't any change. We only had it about a month time will tell if it will hold up. Our old fridge was 19 years old and still working fine. But it was time to buy before it did die.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from rusts love fridge but not happy about surface rust just got product in aug of 2012 put a few magnets on it and when i took them of to polish there was surface rust and its starting to pit i thought stainless steal didn't rust! that was main reason we bought this product we still need to buy rest of appliances don't know if we'll go with samsung
Date published: 2012-11-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from this product is great looks good easy to access I am really happy with my fridge, it knocks once in a while, like someone has knocked on the door, but that only happens when we keep the doors open a long time, I love the freezer, has easy access with lots of room and the top part is nice and bright when you open the doors, I especially like the shelf that slides in for tall items.
Date published: 2012-07-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like the size of the lower freezer I've only had this refrigerator for two days now. In general, this is a good refrigerator. I like the storage in the upper refrigerator doors and the pull out, lower freezer drawers. I also like the digital control panel. The delivery time was very good. But, what I miss is more vertical space on the refrigerator shelves (main part of the refrigerator). I would rather have more additional vertical spacing on the main shelves. in place of the "cool select pantry."
