Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this Fridge couldn't be more pleased... I was concerned about the reviews that said this fridge made excessive noise. Simply not true it runs nice and quiet, love that it has separate compressors one for the fridge and one for the freezer not found in other brands except for higher end models...great fridge great price looks really cool in my kitchen with more room inside than i expected. went from a side by side and now have to go shopping to fill it with groceries because of all the extra space inside... very pleased with the delivery haul away of old fridge and installation and setup was easy and done in less than 20 minutes... seriously happy that I bought this fridge.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful, Flexible and Top Rated Samsung French Door Refrigerator We *love* our new Samsung French Door refrigerator. Selected based on a top rating in Consumer Reports for features, reliability and energy efficiency this refrigerator is a delight. We purchased a new home in January 2014-the kitchen had been updated, including all new Samsung appliances (dishwasher, microwave, and gas range), all EXCEPT the refrigerator. Samsung as an appliance company was new to we waited to see. After 5 months of enjoying the other Samsung appliances for their functionality, performance and aesthetics, we were ready to replace an old white side by side refrigerator AND found the matching Samsung French Door refrigerator was top rated in Consumer Reports and a perfect fit for the space in our kitchen AND Home Depot had a fabulous price-it was an easy decision. We ordered on line, the delivery company Home Depot contracted with was professional, called ahead as promised, arrived on time, and did a fast and careful install of the new refrigerator. They also removed/disposed of the old side by side as we had requested. July 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love at First Use I bought this when our old fridge died in the middle of a NYC heatwave. To complicate matters, I was 9,000 miles away and had to do all my research FAST based on reviews and my own knowledge of the brand. I knew I wanted French doors, since they offer more options in terms of storing food (I cook a lot). When I got home, it was instant love. In fact, I couldn't love this fridge more. It is roomy, extremely adjustable, and offers just enough features to make it useful without being gimmicky. I really like that the filtered water access takes up a tiny amount of space inside the fridge. The French doors are truly fantastic if you like storing large trays or platters of food. Another advantage is that it's easy to see what you have, so food/leftovers, etc don't get lost. The freezer is exceptionally good, offering tons of space and easy access. Unless this fridge breaks down in the next few months, I can only give it the highest rating. My only complaint (and this is not the manufacturer's fault, it's actually my family's fault) is that the surface needs constant wiping down to get rid of finger prints, etc. This would not be necessary if certain people would use the handles to close the door, but what are you going to do.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Samsung fridge I really like it so far have not hooked up water and ice yet but everything else seems to be on spot with this product. Stainless steel hard to keep clean shows all finger prints. January 27, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by loud popping noises several times daily! LOUD POPPING NOISES SEVERAL TIMES DAILY! Warning! It makes LOUD, popping noises that are startling and unsettling to the nerves. This happens during the day and night at random times and is very annoying. And upsetting. Really, Samsung? This is unacceptable. Otherwise, I like everything else so far. We had a repairman out who says the noises are not a defect, but are normal with the expansion and contraction of the lining. Samsung also told us that these noises are normal. We plan to return the refrigerator. February 7, 2015
