    Best Fridge Layout Available

    Posted

    After extensive research for counter depth fridges, of all layout designs, I decided on this model. It seem to have the best reviews with the least amount of reoccurring identical issues. I have to say that I love it. This is the best fridge I have owned or used so far (barring future failure). Props to Best Buy for price matching. It saved me enough to cover the extended warranty just in case. After using this fridge for a couple of months, I do believe this layout will replace the french door layout. It is much easier to see all of your freezer foods and keeps them separated vs the one large pull out drawer. Great internal layout. The open top section has more usable space and it considerably wider than a side by side. Can fit a LOT more food in the freezer section due the drawers layout vs the standard shelving. I have seen review complaints about the small door section under the ice maker. I use it for butter and leftover fast food condiments. The other door shelves are large and very adequate for small to large condiments, drinks, ect. Awesome interior lighting. For anyone with a secondary deep freeze, the third zone (lower right freezer section) can be used as a fridge and would be a major bonus. The fridge has a beautiful exterior design and I have received multiple compliments on it's looks. Cons: Small ice maker bin. Slightly more expensive than other fridges in it's class. Note: I have not owned a french door layout fridge but have used several at other peoples houses. My research for purchasing started with online reviews of reliability and reoccurring product failure for specific models. Using the review information I went to the store for a hands-on personal review of the layouts, looks, ect. Personal Opinion: I have read review from all model fridges of customers saying that they were dead on arrival and/or never cooled to proper temp from the beginning. I think a lot appliance and electronic damage happens during delivery. There are so many electronics and fragile internal parts that can be damaged if they are not careful. I also think people fill the new fridge before it cools to specified temperature which stresses the compressor and other electronics. The men that delivered my fridge were very professional and careful when delivering.

    I'm in love with my refrigerator

    I purchased the Samsung French four door counter depth refrigerator from Best Buy for Labor Day this year. I did extensive research and competitor comparisons before buying. I was a bit concerned at first consideration, having read some reviews reporting a possible annoying bubbling noise at times on this Samsung unit. I also liked the ice maker unit in door option for extra space like on the LG version better. However, the counter depth four door option was what I really needed for my kitchen space limitations and I loved the feature of being able to convert the bottom right quadrant into freezer or refrigerator. Over the past 3.5 months it has worked perfectly... Nope, no annoying bubbling noise. It is so quiet I only noticed it drop an ice cube once when there was no other noise in the house. Controls work great. No splashing issues at all with water or ice dispensers. Lighting in the unit interior is bright. It feels immensely spacious even with the ice maker in the main compartment. The four doors are fabulous giving me lots more work space and easier access to the refrigerator. It looks stunning inside and out. Fingerprints are minimally noticed and clean easily. However, if you stick to using the handles, you won't have any. The recessed handles are very comfortable to use and stylish. I like that the control lights disappear... all but one after use. The pull out doors and trays work very smoothly and are much easier/lighter to use than big heavy bottom drawer freezers. The triple filter system works wonderfully and my stored items seem to be staying fresher longer and no leftovers odor transfers! The only things I recommend to Samsung for next model upgrades would be to integrate the icemaker completely into the door for freeing up even more space, making both crisper drawers airtight for even better humidity control and allowing all of the control lights on the exterior door to disappear. The fold up and slide back half shelves are nice features for customizing space. Product parts all feel sturdy and well made in use. The extra chrome trim on the shelves and door handles add an elegant and modern look. All in all, I am thrilled with this product's performance and incredibly pleased with the features. I got a good price point on the purchase from Best Buy who price matched for the holiday sale and 18 months no interest and got an additional discount from Samsung. The Best Buy service was great. The delivery/install guys were fabulous. They took extra care handling the unit and even gave me great tips with set up. I had one small question for Samsung after purchase and they answered my call efficiently and were very friendly and helpful. I'm definitely recommending this product to all my friends and family and I enjoy using it every day!

    Very nice refrigerator

    First, this refrigerator is almost like a work of art it looks so good. I know that sounds a little crazy for a refrigerator but it really looks very nice. So far it's working very well. One of the cool things about it is the flex zone, which is the bottom right hand compartment can be a freezer or refrigerator. We don't freeze a lot of things and it's nice to get extra refrigerator space as this is a counter depth model. The shelves are very nice and are easily adjusted. When you get a cabinet depth french door refrigerator, the ice maker is in the refrigerator section and it's space is limited so it doesn't hold a lot of ice. I knew that going in so it's no problem for me, but if you have a large family, the ice maker may have trouble keeping up. My last refrigerator was a Samsung and I had a lot of issues with it, so I can't comment on the reliability of this one yet, but I'm very happy with it so far. If you want a cabinet depth French door refrigerator, this is definitely one to consider.

    The non-plus-ultra of refrigerator/freezer!

    Most important! "The doors come off (follow instructions!) to maneuver the unit through regular size (kitchen-) doors". Once installed you notice that the extra volume comes from height and depth, NOT width of the unit. It fits anywhere in the kitchen. The 2 lower compartments can both be set to be freezer, or one freezer, and the other a cooler for drinks (what we do). The included compartment baskets roll on the best possible light wheels. Hook-up to the tap is easy with the included connection hose. The computer control panel is straight-forward and clear. The capacity is HUGE, while access with the 2 opening top-doors is FABULOUS. The roller-coasters on the baskets in the bottom help you pull out the baskets with a finger tip. Insulation and electricity use is low. THIS IS THE ONE!

    We replaced a 10 years old counter depth Monogram side by side which has a little larger in capacity, being slightly taller. To our surprise when moving the food over we noticed that this fridge is more spacious. The lighting is very bright and it is easy to see and find what you’re looking with it’s nice wide opening compared to the old. The finishes are fine and I already got used to the door handles. The double door freezer is just so much easier to organize and find your stuff. Like many people here, we love to use the chill function for extra cold beverages and better maintain meat and fish. The only thing I wish was better is the drawers travel, it’s really on the short side also it would be nice to have the mechanism on bearings. I think it would be suitable in this price range. Overall you can’t go wrong with this fridge. We found it to be super quiet, like the Monogram.

    Lot's of space

    This refrigerator has lot's space for a counter depth. Especially if you convert the bottom right panel to normal refrigerator space too. The interiors are well lit and it is easy to see what's inside. You can fit one gallon containers in the right doors. Some other things that I have noticed. It is very quite. I barely hear it when standing next to it. The doors themselves seem to be fingerprint resistant. But the steel hand holds are slightly more prone to them. You cannot stick magnets to the doors but you can stick them to the sides. The two doors on the top have an annoying bounce to them and require some effort close. No such issue with the bottom two doors. The power cool feature is really convenient. It got our refrigerator to the correct temperature in around 2 hours after installing it.

    I've had it about 6 weeks. Given that my kitchen is tiny & I can't use a bigger fridge (this one is counter depth), it is roomy. My husband is much more likely to find what he's looking for than w/old fridge ;-) So far we've used the flex space as freezer--it wouldn't have a lot of freezer space otherwise. But if I were throwing a party or big family dinner, I could see switching it to refrigeration to accommodate things made in advance. Nice to have the option. Through the door water works better than my old fridge, too; we don't have stellar water pressure. The filter is in an easily accessible place. Electronic controls are less daunting than I thought they might be & Best Buy delivery showed me how to use them. I love how stainless look of that panel when it isn't on blends into the door. So many have big areas of black there.

    Best refrigerator I ever owned

    Almost zero fingerprints because of beveled door handles. So easy to keep clean. Design flaws in previous model all solved. Interior plastic pieces no longer hold water in rims after washing. Worthless middle pull out drawer converted into useable space. And it used to have slits that dripped into the freezer, too. Can still put in a large cake across the top of the bottom crisper. And if you gain a few pounds, like me, you can put the frozen goods into the extra freezer in your garage or parent's house, and use the whole appliance for fresh fruits and veggies. Then you can switch back to normal, the freezer on the bottom, when you are done juicing and detoxing. Best money ever spent on an appliance. In the color, black stainless steel, also the most beautiful. Love the sheen.

    I did a lot of research about counter depth refrigerators. After 1 month of use, I am truly impressed with the quality and worksmanship of this Samsung - 22.5 Cu. Ft. 4-Door Flex French Door Refrigerator. It is spacious and well designed to accommodate all my family needs. My wife is totally happy with the unit. The flex compartment is a brilliant idea and very useful. The icemaker works great and the water dispenser work perfect. No ice on floor or drips on floor or tray. Very Nice! Well lit on the inside so I can see all items stored. Leaves virtually no fingerprints on doors. Also no door handles! Now I hope the unit operates this way for many years to come!

    This refridgerator is very user friendly. The 2 doors for the lower freezer make handling frozen foods so much easier to locate. With pull out drawers there is no stacking and moving frozen foods around constantly to find what you need. The pull out drawers help to see your product even if it stored all the way in the back. And the setup inside the refrigerated section makes it convenient for food storage and locating it at a later time. I love that there are no handles in the front. Keeps the grimy hands off the stainless steel and makes for easier polishing it when needed.

    Love the four doors on the Samsung refrigerator - not a fan of the pull out freezer drawers on other models as frozen items get buried in the bottom. Great LED lighting on the inside. Shelves are easy to adjust and large platters can fit in nicely. As a counter depth refrigerator it is small on the inside however it fits our needs and I like the way it looks in our kitchen. The recessed handles are very stylish! One small issue was that the bottom doors were dented in at the bottom of the handles - likely pressed in too hard when the doors were installed - but geek squad was excellent and sent a replacement immediately. Also love that it is quiet as our previous Kitchen Aid that came with the new house was very noisy.

    I am a lover of Apple products so I was skeptical at first about a Samsung product but so far, this fridge met our expectations. The buying process was horrible at my local best buy however I have no complaints about the item we purchased. We got it on sale so that was also a bonus for me. The kids love using the flex door for their own drinks and snacks. We use the one lower right side for the freezer since we have a deep freezer in the garage. The upper two doors open wide and the light is super bright! This is exactly what we needed in our open kitchen. I thought the counter depth was going to be too small but it's actually perfect for my family. I must admit it took some getting used to.

    Looks Amazing, Sounds like an Aquarium

    This thing looks incredible. Great design inside and out. The water dispenser filter doesn't do much at all. Don't count on it to help filter the water for any taste improvement. This fridge makes some unusual noise for a fridge. Not loud, but gurgle-y. It sounds like an aquarium. Apparently it's normal and not a concern. Once you're used to it, it's kinda nice. I might buy a fake fish to put next to it so the sounds match the looks of something nearby. I should probably go the whole nine yards and get something to hide behind the fake fish that sounds like a regular fridge to even it all out.

    Love the 4-door feature and especially the variety of options for half of the freezer section - refrigerator, extra cool or freezer. Only negative for me is the water dispenser which is pointed towards the rear making it difficult to fill anything with a narrow neck (such as a water bottle) or even to fill a glass to capacity because you have to tilt it to depress the fill lever, I actually just depress the lever with my other hand but our previous LG model didn't require that. So a bit annoying. Still I can live with that for all the other positive features- such as multiple shelf arrangements including extra tall storage in the main compartment,

    I did a lot of research before deciding on this Samsung. Being limited to a counter depth the available space and layout if the refrigerator was important to us. We have used a side by side for the past ten years. We were always pushed for space when having family visit. When we moved our contents into this refrigerator we immediately noticed the increased space. The cubic foot capacity was almost identical but the layout afforded us much more room. Having the lower flex door gives us the added room to expand when we need more non frozen storage. We have only had this for the past month but we are very pleased. If I was to purchase a new refrigerator again today it would still be this Samsung.

    Awesome fridge - flex zone rocks!

    Man, this fridge is pretty awesome. Love how you can turn the ice maker on/off with the push of the button (rather than bend the bar up) set the main fridge to a digital temperature (rather than analog knob) and the flex zone simply rocks. Flex zone allows 4 pre-set temperature settings (something like 42 for drinks, 30 for meat, 23 for soft freeze and probably 0 for hard freeze.) We use it as a refrigerator compartment for things we don't use often but I'm finding moving meat down there and keeping it set at 30 degrees keeps the meat longer. Love it!

    I haven’t had the unit very long but, I love it so far. My wife and I are “empty nesters” and we didn’t need a deep refrigerator anymore. So, we went with the counter depth. We love the 4 door design as opposed the the French drawer. I did find out by accident that the right side bottom can be used as a chiller, a fridge or a freezer. Really cool option except I thought it was always a freezer. Lost a few frozen foods but, now I know. The in-door dispenser is great because it accommodates large cups and you don’t have to make the switch between water or ice. Overall, we’ve been very happy with it.

    I love the sleek design of the doors on this refrigerator. I also love the fact that I can convert a quarter of the freezer compartment to a refrigerator. I have freezer so this serves me well. The counter depth takes away for the amount of storage in the doors but having the convertible space makes up for this. The ice maker also takes up some space. I do wish that there was a meat drawer. I also wish it had a light over the ice and water dispenser. These are small things and I like the look of the refrigerator enough to make up for these small inconveniences. It works great, looks great and I can say I would definitely recommend it.

    I had heard that Samsung has become one of the best companies for refrigerators. I must say that I am a fan and a believer. So far the fridge has met every need I've had, from fitting like I expected to having the interior space I needed. I was hesitant with the double doors at the bottom, but so far it has been better than the normal pull out drawer. I would expect that some people may not enjoy bending over, however I was always frustrated by stacking item upon item in the drawer(s). With the doors, you are able to organize items on the drawers or shelves, making it easier to access. Great fridge overall and would highly recommend.

    So far in the few months using the counter depth model we are extremely happy with this fridge. The ice maker works great and produces plenty of ice (does take a day or so when you first plug it in to start making and filling ice as per directions.) Plenty of space inside for our needs and love the option to convert one side for freeze or fridge! Very quiet refrigerator as well. Could not be happier with the finish on the outside - looks so sleek and is super easy to keep clean too. After doing much research, we are pleased we decided on this Samsung!!
