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

      I had a similar refrigerator before but it didn't have the same amount of room on the doors and interior. Checked consumer reports and found this is a highly recommended product. Thought it would cost more than I paid. Was pleasantly surprised and am even more impressed with my new refrigerator. Awesome product!!!

        Since I got this Refrigerator in 12-8/2013, until now everything is good (see above) except for big noise sometimes, such as "ba-ba-" or" pi-pi", the noise can hear on my home upstairs . But when I check this problem in company's website, said its normal. I don't know its noise will disappear later. That my comment.

            Best fridge we have ever had. The water filter feature is great, but would like to see a longer spout or a flow dispenser speed toggle, as sometimes we get splash back when the water hits ice cubes. Other than that it has been great!

            25.5 FRENCH DOOR REFRIGERATOR

            By RUSTBUSTER

            from HOUSTON

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

            WE'VE HAD OUR REFRIGERATOR FOR THREE MONTHS AND LOVE THE ILLUMINATION INSIDE. THE SECOND SHELF HAS A FRONT SECTION THAT LIFTS FOR STORAGE OF TALL BOTTLES ON THE THIRD SHELF (SUCH AS WINE). THERE IS AN ABUNDANT AMOUNT OF STORAGE SPACE IN THE REFRIGERATOR AND FREEZER COMPARTMENT. THE ONLY DOWNER IS THE ICE MAKER IS EXTREMELY LOUD WHEN DISCHARGING ICE - SORT OF LIKE A GUN GOING OFF WHICH CAN BE A LITTLE DISCONCERTING AT THREE IN THE MORNING.

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

                I live in Puerto Rico and not whether the climate is related but the freezer area makes a lot of frost in food and some areas of this. otherwise I'm pleased with how spacious it is. Another problem is the difficulty freezer clean inside.

                    I like the features and design. It maximizes the available cu. ft. and provides temp control for veg. and meat in the well designed shelf drawers. The water dispenser doesn't waste space like the external dispensers. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a well designed and functional refrig.

                        I replaced this refrigerator with a french door unit that had an ice maker and a water dispenser that took up way too much space in my refrigerator so I did NOT buy this refrigerator for the ice maker or the water dispenser and it's a good thing. The ice maker mades 8 cubes every 2 hours and the interior water dispenser drips. We have a stand alone ice maker and have really good tap water. Will be turning off the water to the refrigerator.

                        Big capacity, well designed

                        By Arrowrock

                        from Fort Wayne, IN

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

                        After too many repairs on the old fridge, when it stopped cooling after eight years, we looked for a new one of a different make. Their repairman can go back to sleep. The biggest fridge I found with no water/ice in the front door was this Samsung. We like the French doors, the shelf layout and the digital temperature displays. The door bins that hold gallon jugs of milk are handy. I think the bottom freezer drawer is a more energy efficient design than the side by side and top freezer types. This is our first ice maker, and it does work OK. But it will fill the bin too full and spill ice chunks behind the freezer drawer. We have to watch the ice level and use the "ice off" button fairly often. This issue was not serious enough to deduct a star from the rating.
