Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 44 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by glad we took a chance There were several reviews that warned of insufficient shelf space for taller items. Thank goodness we took a chance and purchased this refrigerator. There is adequate space for drinks. We can fit a total of 2 gallon jugs and 2 one-half gallon containers in the bottom side shelves. This unit is sleek yet relatively spacious. We love it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by We love this Fridge! It replaced the original electric/propane refrigerator in our motorhome. This residential type is so much better quality, performance and appearance. We can finally have ice cream stay cold now! May 13, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Only one (Big) flaw This fridge is a great counter-depth size, seems to be good quality, and is very attractive-looking. It was easy to install and cooled off pretty fast. The only problem is that there is not enough space to put drink containers if you use all the shelves provided. The two door drink holders are great, but they only hold 4 tall drinks (or less, if you need those spaces for tall condiments). The only large adjustable shelf doesn't adjust enough to put milk, soda, or pitchers in the body of the fridge. I ended up having to remove the shelf, which is a shame. We don't have a lot of options in this size of fridge, so I will continue to try to find a better solution. If you don't use more than four containers of milk, juice, soda, or have pitchers of drinks in your fridge, then maybe this one would work great for you. June 2, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do Not Buy this product This was a great product until a couple months after the warranty expired. There are known issues with the defrost cycle and the icemaker. The service technician who came to my house 4 times told me that Samsung is aware of major problems with this model. If you buy it, be sure to look it over carefully before your warranty period ends and DO NOT IGNORE ANY PROBLEMS, no matter how small they seem. Mine started collecting water underneath the crisper drawers, which would freeze. Then the fan unit in the back of the fridge compartment would freeze solid - you could see ice hanging out of it. Please be aware of these issues and research PROBLEMS with this unit - NOT reviews. Everyone likes it while it is new. I did, too. January 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great, Stylish Refrigerator We love this frig. It's sized perfectly for the alcove in our kitchen. Food truly does stay fresher longer. It looks great --not too bulky and is spacious inside. We only wish there was a little more shelf flexibility to accommodate tall cans and bottles. July 3, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by No Off Switch Just purchased a new RV with this refrigerator installed. Strangely, it doesn't have an off button Samsung suggested I leave it on all the time with food stored in it or turn it off by using the RV battery cut-off switches. While that suggestion is workable when I store the RV, it is less desirable when I simply want to disable the fridge and have other things on the RV working. The refrigerator is run through a 2000 W inverter when not on shore power. I could, of course, turn off the inverter, but the fridge would then continue to run until it depleted the batteries, not a desirable outcome. Temperature on this unit varies from 38F to 42F when set at 34F. I have attempted to get a service tech to look at this for a week but repeated calls to Samsung have produced nothing but a series of ridiculous questions such as "Are you leaving the doors open?" and "Do you have too much stuff in the refrigerator?"

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nice fridge This fit perfectly in my kitchen. Looks great too. Love the french doors and the LED lighting. Freezer works great as well. Space is a minor issue for tall items such as soda bottles but I took out the middle shelf problem solved. Love my new fridge. July 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice refrigerator We had a very limited space for a refrigerator and this is one of the only ones that would fit. The refrigerator storage is pretty good--I would prefer if I could move the shelves in the door--but can't. June 11, 2013
