Comments about Samsung 17.8 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - White:
I would never buy another samsung product - any samsung product. My refrigerator freezer quit working properly within 2 weeks of the expiration date of the warranty. I've spoken with someone else who experienced the same problem and he knows of others who also had this problem.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

good value , feature fair
from PATTERSON CA
The inside shelves are not spaced enough to put drink pitchers in..or milk cartons. they all have to go into the doors and the small shelves on doors do not hold anything that is not small. all bottles of mustard ect .have to go into fridge. In one week I have broken plastic by the pull on freezer and service call scheduled. Hope this will not be an issue in the future.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Our old fridge went bad and my wife wanted a side by side.Since we couldn't find a side by side that would fit my wife started looking at other types and saw this one.I Didn't think I would like the french door style but now love it.It's nice to have the fridge part at a level where you don't have to get on your knees to find something on the lower shelves.The freezer takes some getting use to but overall we are both glad we decided on this one.

All I wanted was a refrigerator that fit into my kitchen
from Boston, MA
We have a very narrow doorway to our kitchen so our options were limited. I deeply regret buying the Samsung RF197ACRS. We made it around 14 months without issues until it started freezing our produce drawers. I took them out and there was a thick layer of ice under the drawers. I found that if I don't fill the freezer, this isn't as bad (but I'd really like to use my freezer space). A few months later, the refrigerator wouldn't cool to an acceptable temperature (below 40 degrees). I emptied it, defrosted it, and it worked for a few more months. Then we could hear a motor struggling and found that ice was built up on the back wall of the refrigerator so we once again emptied it, defrosted it and it seemed to work. It's now 2.5yrs after purchasing the refrigerator and I have once again had to empty the entire unit and defrost it, hoping that it works for another few months. I'm sick of wasting food on this refrigerator - either it freezes my produce or it gets up to an unsafe temperature and my food spoils. Not to mention, it tells me that it's 40 degrees when it's really around 55. Complete waste of money. I found that the freezing up and being unable to cool issue is quite common among multiple Samsung models. I wish I had found those reviews before purchasing.
Looks nice - stopped working in under 6 months
Looks nice and fits well but the unit quit working in under 6 months. It's at out summer home and gets used very little. Still waiting for a repair. Hope it lasts longer than 5 months after the repair
Great Fridge with one Minor Flaw
from Anchorage, AK, USA
This specific model Samsung fridge was installed in my motorcoach in place of a Norcold RV fridge which is a fire trap and hundreds of RV's have burned because of Norcold's irresponsibility. The fridge fit into the same space with only a modification of the opening height by 7 inches. The ONLY flaw of this fridge is that the heater clips which are located on each of the two cooling coils was built TOO small so the Defrost Drain Line eventually freezes up which causes water and ice to accumulate in the crispers and on the bottom of the fridge and freezer compartments. The fix is to have Samsung remove the small Heater Clips and install the larger Heater Clips on each cooling coil. I am a very Happy Camper now that I have a Great Fridge to keep my food cold and frozen.
EXCELLENT SAMSUNG VALUE & PRODUCT
THIS IS AN OVERALL GREAT PRODUCT FOR ITS PRICE!!!!
Best there is
We remodeled our kitchen a couple years ago and upgraded all our appliances. The Samsung Fridge was a perfect fit for our design. Not too large and cabinet depth, which is required in our rather compact kitchen. Performance has been excellent, no problems to report thus far. It also looks great and fits well with the overall design. Easy acess and the bottom freezer and ice maker are great. Plenty of room for groceries and leftovers. Highly recommend this product.
Makes a lot of noises but Excellent so far
from Denver, CO
We bought this fridge in the summer of 2013 to replace an antique fridge and it's met all expectations as far as features and performance: ice cold, responsive settings, great ergonomics. Can be a little tight if you tend to stock up when shopping but this is good motivation to shop intelligently. Design is great if you want a counter-depth fridge to maximize space as we did given our galley kitchen within a condo. Our only complaint/concern so far is that it makes lots of noises (e.g. compressor?) so we hope it's not indicative of a looming problem. Given that our last fridge ran for almost 25 years it's too early to know about durability/reliability.
