Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Matt Do not use this filter, bad flow and not a direct replacement!
I figured that at $25 each for these filters I would save a few bucks. The fridge immediately started making a really loud vibrating sound coming from the back near the water inlet. The flow rate was really bad, too. With the Samsung filter it fills a 16oz glass in under 10 seconds. With the HDX it takes about 30 seconds. To rule out a defective unit I tried both filters with the same result. Hoping it was just trapped air in the filter I left it in for a few weeks. The noise happened once in a while, but sometimes would happen randomly when the icemaker refilled and would scare everyone. Fearing I would damage the fridge I got a Samsung replacement and the problem went away immediately. Flow also returned to normal.
In addition, the filter is different at the end that sticks out of the recess. It is not the full diameter all the way to the end, so it is able to move side to side. Normally the hole in the recess keeps the filter from moving around.
For a few bucks more get the OEM filter. I am returning these to the store and letting them know about this problem.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ed Worst 3rd party refrigerator water filter. Not worth to buy your money for the house damage you'll get.
My brand new house, which is only less than 3 years old, ended up flooding my floor tile with water leak coming from the HDX refrigerator water filter. It was installed properly exactly as instructed and I was confident that a Home Depot representative recommended to me with this product since the original Samsung refrigerator water filter was out of stock. I was lucky that it happened during daytime and caught up the problem right away. Otherwise it would had been a disaster that ended up damaging my walls and kitchen cabinets. I would rate this item a ZERO if ever there's an option. I would just buy an expensive and original fitted water filter for my refrigerator rather than dealing a 2 piece - cheap inexpensive 3rd party water filter and destroy my property. CONSUMERS "DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM"...YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

I feel I was talked into purchasing the HDX brand filter over the Samsung filter by the HD sales rep - 2 for nearly the price of 1. Great buy, right? WRONG!
- the HDX filter does not fit the opening on my Samsung refrigerator completely or properly. I realize this seems to be only an aesthetic issue.
- the flow rate is significantly less than the Samsung filter. I ran about 3 liters of water through the HDX filter to see if the filter just needed to be primed for proper usage, not just to flush for water filtration. No use.
- removed the HDX filter, put the Samsung filter back in, and ordered a new Samsung filter.
- I will be returning these filters to Home Depot.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mike DO NOT BUY!
I followed all of the given instructions and it caused a major flood. Even following stated instructions under another person's review here it still caused my entire refrigerator to leak. DO NOT BUY! Damaged the floor...

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ne samsung water filter
These did Not work for my Samsung refrigerator. They made so much noise it was unreal. Had a service person come out because it was making so much noise. He changed the filter with a Samsung brand and it's been quiet ever since. He stated you can't use generics for Samsung. I believe this the previous filter we had was a different generic brand it made some noise but no ware as bad as this one. I bought the 2 pack and had to throw the other one away. Don't waste your money if you have a Samsung refrigerator.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lynelu Just as good as Samsung
Two filters for the price of one? Yes please! My ice is still crystal clear and the water tastes just as good as it did with the, more expensive, Samsung brand.
