    Doesn’t fit older Samsung refrigerators

    Bought these before and they worked ok. Then I bought some replacements and wouldn’t screw on the filter base. After trying numerous times looked on YouTube and found out they added an extra notch on the filter. Found out you have to remove the notch. So you have to cut it off the smallest of the three notches. Leaving a _______U shape with the line under it. Remember to cut both notches front and rear. Then it will fit like it’s supposed to. See pics for details.

    Oooookaaaaaaaay...These are water filters. How exciting can that be? Not very. But they work and they work well and I have used them in the past and will continue to do so. It's too bad they're not capable of curing "stupid", otherwise I would be a genius! But again, they work and they work well. One cannot ask for more than that from a water filter. Well...You could but you wouldn't get anything more. Trust me...I know what I'm doin' when I'm reviewin'.

    Not bad but hard to install

    I bought this filter instead of the name brand Samsung filter as the employee said it was the same and what many of them used it due to the lower cost. It was harder to turn into position and it doesn’t show whew the locked position is so you are left guessing. I didn’t want to overtightwn to lock it but wasn’t sure if it was properly installed so I ended up taking it out and putting it in again. Once I felt confident it was installed “ok” it seems to be working just fine.

    Price of 1 OEM for 2 Insignia. Only issue I have is the filter needs to be soaked in water for 15 minutes before it should be installed. If you dont, I read that the water wont taste good at first since it is flushing out the carbon filter particles. Once installed, you have to flush water through it by running your water on the fridge for 5 minutes. Both of these steps are not necessary for the OEM version. Again, value for the price trumps these steps. Water tastes great and I cannot tell the difference.

    Instructions to soak the filter before installing which was not required on new refrigerator original filter, so was not comfortable with the product. Also said to screw in hard and tight as the insert nozzle might be larger that the opening, so again, was not comfortable with the product for fear of it stripping or damaging the insert opening on the refrigerator.

    Low cost, tastes great! Samsung water filters are way expensive, so when these were $25 for a 2 pack, my only regret was not stocking up! Read the instructions and be sure to run as much water as it states to flush out the new filter. This can take a while, don’t waste water, use it on plants or soaking your neighbors cat that likes to play in your yard.

    I got these to replace my OEM Samsung water filter in my fridge and these fit perfect. The bottom of these filters are a bit more square shape than the original filter but fit perfect. My fridge is a bottom french door fridge. I purchased these as a daily deal and got a great price compared to the crazy price of a single OEM filter. Highly recommend these filters.

    I have had this installed for about 10 days. I did not notice any difference is taste between this filter and the Samsung filters. This one seems to be a little bigger but no issues installing. No stickers to tell you date installed. Just added date with sharpie once installed. I would buy these again. Two for less than the price of one! BB could make it easier to identify what filters these replace.

    Initially was disappointed the proper Samsung filter was unavailable, but after reading predominately positive reviews I opted to give it a chance. GREAT savings!! Works the same for half the price! The flushing procedure before use is a bit longer, but well worth the effort both financially and effectively.

    It dripped a bit immediately after using the water in the beginning, but it stopped after a few hours. Sometimes the Samsung version would, too, so it really wasn't a big deal. It doesn't seem to be lasting as long, but it may be my refrigerator. (I'm getting that checked out this week.) Water quality seems to be the same as Samsung's version. No major complaints, much better price.

    I'm skeptical of generic filters and chose this one because it is carried by Best Buy and presumably meets some type of quality standard that I hope this store holds. The filter claims to remove the typical poisons (lead, etc.) but I haven't sent any samples out and have no such intention. It fits my Samsung refrigerator without issue. Best of luck.

    So far its working great just like the samsung filter I have previously purchased. I decided to try the insignia filters because I got 2 filters for the price I was paying for 1 filter. The samsung filter only lasted 5 months at best, so it will be interesting to see how long this one last. At least I already have a spare filter when it does expire.

    Best Buy Water Filter for Refrigerator

    I usually buy the brand name water filter for my Samsung refrigerator. However, Best Buy was out and only had their version. I bought it and they sell two filters for the same price as one made by Samsung. So far it has been fine. On a side note...while I love Samsung televisions...I will never buy another Samsung refrigerator. They should stick to tv's.

    I've tried other filters from competitors and they dont perform as well as the set I bought. I had trouble with leaks and flow on the competitors filters. I'm not sure how long they will last but fit and performance are as good as the Samsung original filters.

    I took a chance on this off brand filter and it worked with no problems. A few years ago I tried another off brand sold by Best Buy--6 filters--4 out of 6 leaked and didn't work--Best Buy wouldn't take them back and had to be shipped back to the manufacturer for a refund, which I forego because of the hassle. Just glad these these worked.

    We have been purchasing the name-brand (Samsung) filters for years, and just stumbled across the Insignia brand one day while at Best Buy. For the price, we thought we would give it a shot. The filter has been working great! We have noticed no change in the flavor or quality of the water. We are very happy with the product!

    The staff member that helped me find this water filter saved me 35% on my purchase. I have a Samsung fridge. And i had always thought only Samsung filters would fit on my fridge. But the knowledgeable staff member showed me a different company's filter that he said works exactly the same as the Samsung one its just a different brand name. Z

    I had been buying the Samsung brand for the water filter. Replacement filters in general as quite expensive, but the Insignia brand offers a nice discount to the Samsung brand. I had no problem with installing the new filter. The 2 pack is convenient and allows me to have a replacement on hand, saving me a trip back to the store.

    I've been paying the same price for 1 of these filters, so when I saw two for the price of one, I jumped. The filter seems to perform at the same quality as the other ones I've been buying. We'll see how it goes over the next 4-5 months when it comes time to replace it. Overall; good value for an apparent quality product.

    Purchased these based on my description to the sales person. I should have taken the old filter into the store as there is more than one style filter for Samsung refrigerators. It was completely my mistake.
