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.

I bought this 2 pack of filters for the price on 1 Samsung filter thinking I was getting a good deal. Immediately I noticed the taste of chlorine. It was a waste of money. Buy the right filter and don't cheap out. It's worth it just for the taste.

I needed a new water filter on my Sony refrigerator. Talked with an agent in the store. He advised me that this was the product I needed. Watched a Utube video and the installation went great. This product also gave me 2 filters for the price of one. Now I am ready when I need to replace this one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Winterwolf67 Great deal
I had no idea that HDX made filters for my Samsung refrigerator. The 2 pack is the best deal overall of any products

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by blackdogmaintenance Terrible product!
This product didn't seal properly and continuously leaked. I figured that I might have better luck with the 2nd filter in the pack....nope. It leaked worse than the 1st.
Pay the extra money for the Samsung filter!!!

Very very slow flow. After having these I'd rather pay a little more for the Samsung and save about 3 hours of my life. Also is causing my fridge to make noises I've never heard before. Looks like the flow is too low for the motor and might be hurting it
