        Comments about Samsung 25.5 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Platinum:

        I really love this fridge. It feels so spacious and I LOVE having the water on the inside of the fridge. It doesn't take up room in the door like most fridges and leaves the front with a clean, sleek look. The French door design is the best as well! I grew up with a side-by-side and it always felt like you could never fit anything in it! Especially when you had a tray or leftover pizza box to squeeze in there. This fridge is the exact opposite. It's super spacious and accommodating. The shelves move very easily and the one that folds in toward the back to fit in tall bottles, etc. is a lifesaver. The LED lights really light the whole thing up nicely as well so it makes finding things in the back a breeze. And by having a freezer drawer it seems like things fit nicely and don't slide all around. With the side-by-side I always felt like stuff was on the verge of falling out on me. I love the look of stainless steel, but the only down side is that it does dent pretty easily. I tried to be very careful knowing that was the case, but we still managed to get 2 small dents in it while owning it less than a year :( Disappointing, but to be expected with a stainless front. Fingerprints aren't too noticeable on it right away. They will show after a while, though, so make sure to get a nice stainless cleaner to buff it back to its beautiful shine. Overall, I'm very happy with this fridge and would recommend it to anyone! The reason I picked it in the first place was because of its high ratings by Consumer Reports!!

        I have owned the French door bottom freezer refrigerator model RF261BEAESR for 2 years I purchased it new and have enjoyed all of it's featured , but do have a problem with a very loud popping sound, but have gotten use to it. The most annoying problem is the ice maker , when you slide the freezer opened the ice falls behind the drawer , other then shutting the ice maker off and on manually, does anyone have a suggestion to fix this annoying problem?

          Purchased this fridge - rf261beaesr/aa in July. It's now August. The features are all nice and the fridge does as expected. Really like many things it does. Nice size, good color, keeps things cold. There is an "added feature" however that isn't mentioned. An extremely loud popping noise. Samsung claims it is normal expanding/contracting as the unit cools etc. Did I mention it's loud? Yes, like someone snuck up behind you and banged something in your ear. You will literally jump. It's very fun! We wait for it to scare the dog so we can watch her shake. Samsung stands by their product - just not too close in case the noise pops. Good luck.

          Very pleased with this new fridge! Lots of space and we love the interior water dispenser which helps keep the outside elegant. Very quiet!

              I love this fridge! Almost everything is perfect, except the ice bin. The only problem is it tends to overflow. Other than that it's perfect.

                  Our fridge is less than 2 years old and the water dispenser has broken twice is less than a year! We thought we were buying a quality product from a technology leader, but this product is a failure.

                      small problem that was fixed

                      A very good product aside from a small problem that seemed to be easily fixed. The ice maker was causing problems with noise when dispensing water. The repair guy changed out the part and we haven't had a problem since.

                        The refrigerator looks great lots of room and I love the fact that the water dispenser and ice maker are not at the door. I know a lot of people that have units with those features built in the door and are broke or not fully functional. The only thing I don't like is the frost build up in the freezer.

                        Design Defect

                        When we open the freezer compartment ice cubes fall out of the ice cube tray, and land either in the bottom of the freezer compartment, or worse, on the floor below the refrigerator. Also, the plastic shelves on the door sides are too flimsy, and two have broken through normal use.
