We bought this fridge a little over a year ago, and in the last few months: 1) it has stopped maintaining a consistent temperature, at times simply quitting cooling the fridge past 45° and needing to be fixed by resetting the breaker; we had to install a thermometer with an alarm to keep from losing more food. 2) we have had to replace one of the door bins (over $60), and two more are slowly coming apart - the design is terrible. 3) the inside bottom corner of one of the doors cracked (we have no idea how, it’s not in a place where anything falling out of the fridge could possibly hit it!) 4) a tiny part popped off of the ice maker, resulting in a mix of large stuck-together cubes and ice chips until we figured it out and managed to find it. It’s still producing lots of half-cubes and chips, but that’s been pretty consistent from the beginning. 5) the bottom fridge drawer repeatedly pops out of its track, resisting all attempts to fix it. 6) the water dispenser button broke, also needing to be replaced (and also a terrible design!) Every fix or patch we’ve done has been with the $80 cost of a warranty visit in mind, but it’s quickly exceeded that anyway. Very much wishing we’d gone with a higher end model in the beginning!

Freezer handle broke off and it's a non serviceable part. I'm handy but couldn't figure how to repair so called Samsung. They put me in contact with Samsung repair vendor. $125 for service call that would go toward the repair, so I was told. Samsung Care arrived and right away told me it was a non-serviceable part because it brook in the door panel and entire door would need to be replaced for $487 with labor. No thanks. Out $125 for service call. Handle is very poorly engineered with the cheapest construction. Plastic is extremely thin for something used to open the freezer door. If I paid the $487 it would just break again. Have owned firdge less than two years. We returned the fist fridge of this model because the freezer wouldn't automatically defrost. Now, with less than two years of ownership the handle broke outside of warranty period. Samsung is better at making phones and tablets than appliances.

I love this refrigerator because the internal water dispenser saves so much room in the doors of the fridge! The dual doors make it easy to put things in/out, there is SO much space for food, and there's a collapsible option in one of the shelves for extra storage! The ice machine works perfectly. The installation was quick and the techs new exactly what they were doing when it came to the installation. They were in and out of my house in less than one hour! The product is phenomenal and this investment has definitely improved my home. I highly recommend this product.

Had nice Samsung TV so gave this refrigerator model a try in late 2014, right off the start the fridge was not cold enough and freezer too cold, called for useless service and they said that is how they are that they cycle themselves. After 2 years it started to freeze at the coils behind back panel in fridge and has done so since every 4-6 months since, I schedule my own service to take this apart and defrost with a hair dryer every 4 months. Samsung has denied the problem and said I have to pay for service and parts, there is a class action law suit on this problem since 2012 and wish I had seen that before purchase, its a design flaw it can't be fixed just have to self defrost every couple months. After Samsung response fair to say I won't purchase any of there products, if they don't stand behind the products they make I don't want any of them..

It's a beautiful slate black color. It goes perfect with my other appliances. The only thing I've observed slight noise when the ice falls into the bin. Overall it is huge in size and compartments.

One star - keeps the food cold; but only buy this refrigerator if you want to constantly replace door bins. Oh, and Samsung does not cover after 1 year of ownership, so don't even bother with customer service. Instead you'll need to spend $60 every time one goes down (normally with a mess as the food in it will be all over the floor). Oh, and don't let anything touch the exterior - it dents when you look at it. Skip Samsung and go for another brand.

I'm so happy with my new refrigerator! I added the optional inside water dispenser. It saves space and works well (no messy tray) once you get tue hang of the angle. The handles are sleek cleanable plastic. The party tray drawer really fits a party tray with a lid! The freezer is easy to organize. It is a little slow on hpw mich ice it makes per day but its enough for us. If we had a party I'd have to go buy ice. Other than that, excellent!
