    After reading reviews for over a month and in need for a new refigerator we decided to buy the Samsung 36" wide French door model with water and ice despensor. The led lighting is absolutely incredible from what we were use to, also the adjustable shelves are great to allow for taller products in the fridge. Some reviews mention this being a noise fridge, I would have to completely dissagree with that. The only time any noise can be heard is when new ice cubes are falling into the ice bucket. I guess some ppl will always find something to complain about. I highly recommend this product!

    I purchased this Samsung fridge to replace a oft broken Whirlpool. I have had this fridge now for a few months and this is my impressions of it so far. I love this fridge. Leaps and bounds above my old Whirlpool. The LED lights make the fridge nice and bright. The ice cubes are kinda small but that doesn't bother me personally. I have no seen any issues with the ice maker as some people have stated in reviews over the interwebs. Only cons I can think of is for some reasons magnets don't stick on the front of the fridge, so I can't put up pictures or my kids artwork. But this fridge has been fantastic so far and it looks amazing.

    I love the black stainless finish. Mine came with two very small dents on the front, but I was compensated with a discount rather than returning the appliance and waiting for a replacement. The dents are hardly noticeable and I'm very happy with the fridge. Two things are a little different on this model. First, there doesn't seem to be a butter dish compartment normally found on the door. Second, the ice maker in the door does not give the option to pull out to dump the ice. There is, however, the option to add another ice maker in the freezer, but I opted out. I just periodically use the ice dispenser on the door and fill a bowl to keep in the freezer. I really like the fold up shelf to accommodate larger items. All in all, this is a really good buy!

    Mostly great

    We love this fridge overall. Temperature holds very well, lighting is good, and space is great. The only complaints are the noise and the ice maker (terrible in my opinion!). However, my husband says the noises sound normal to him and do not bother him at all. I just think it's too loud when it's running. The amount of space is great, and we have really enjoyed the french doors. We kept our old fridge at first, because I was afraid a "drawer" freezer would not be enough space. We have plenty of room, with some left over (and we freeze a lot). The first one we got was leaking due to a bad filter, but Best Buy replaced it right away with no issue and we have have no real problems with the new one. Have had it about 7 months now. Overall, a great purchase!

    This refrigerator has a ton of capacity. It is FULL depth, not counter depth, so if that bothers you, don't buy this product. Ice bin holds approximately 5 lbs of ice, which is a lot if you are comparing other models. We like the fact that this refrigerator doesn't have all the touch screen nonsense that manufacturers are using now. Single drawer freezer also is deceptively large, mostly due to the depth of the refrigerator itself. Comes with a 10 year warranty on the compressor and I would recommend the Best Buy protection plan since it's inexpensive and covers loss of food up to a certain dollar value. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

    Excellent Refrigerator, Big Capacity, Perfect

    We are very pleased with the size and features of this refrigerator. We did not need the "Hub". It is easy to see and set the temp in refrigerator or freezer. Plenty of room for food. Our only issue, and not that big of issue...the ice dispenser does not work too well on narrow cups, some ice will end up on the floor. Retailer: Best Buy's Price Match Guarantee is legitimate; they matched the best price we could find by $40, provided free delivery and install. Installation: Best Buy Geek Squad installed the unit, professionals all the way! They safely took the doors off hinges and replaced them after the install. They connected water line and thoroughly checked for any leaks.

    Do not, I repeat do not waste your money on this! The ice maker leaks and parts have major flaws that Samsung has not addressed and don't care about. Read all reviews. Don't waste your money! Two fridges with the same problem and the second one was just past the one year warranty so no help from Samsung even though they know that the parts are defective!!!! If yours is leaking it is the gasket. Put bubble wrap in it to raise it so it will seal with the ice maker. Free fix which I discovered after Samsung sent an outside company to fix mine for 326.00 for a part that was not broken! They will not do anything about it because they don't care!!! Never again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Best Buy needs to pull their product!

    I love my new Samsung refrigerator. I looked at different brands and different Samsungs. This one gave me lots of room for a great price. I have one teen and one tween boy and I was finding that I did not have enough room in the fridge or freezer in my old side by side. I even have an extra freezer. With my new fridge I am finding that I can buy more to store in the extra freezer. It is amazing how much this will hold. It is well lit and I can put items in the fridge and freezer that I could have never put in my old one. It also has a great design to help us keep both the fridge and the freezer parts organized. I would recommend it to anyone. Hard to believe how much a refrigerator can help make your busy life easier.

    Just like many of the other owners of this fridge, I feel that the noise is excessive. I used to own a LG and since that died on me I thought I would try a Samsung. After reading multiple reviews on all the different types available, it is hard to tell which one will have the least problems. I do not understand why after a 100 years of the home refrigerator being invented we still have problems with these things. The freezer door is easy to open, but the top drawer does not come forward all the way. The metal on the front is not magnetic, this may be a negative or positive for you. For the amount of money this fridge costs, it should have better sound dampening. At least it keeps my food cold for now.

    Last Saturday my wife & I decided to go shopping for a replacement refrigerator. Our current refrigerator has recently started making strange noises & we figured with it being 17 years old it was probably about to go out. We chose to go to Best Buy. When we got out of our car there were 3 French door models out on the sidewalk. We looked them over and then went inside to see what else they might have. Finances being what they are, we went back outside and really looked over the 3 again. We chose the 28 cubic foot Samsung stainless steel French door model. It had a few dents & scratches but it was marked down by half from MSR. We are very pleased. This all happened on Saturday & it was delivered on the following Monday.

    Exactly what I wanted in a refrigerator

    I knew I wanted a french door fridge with a freezer drawer, and after shopping around a bit, I settled on this one after reading reviews and checking it out at Best Buy. While there were a few negative reviews, those mostly seemed attributable to either personal preference or to fluke defects that can happen with any product. I've had this one for about a month, and it is exactly what I was looking for. The installation was flawless, and it holds even more than I imagined! Some concerns I had about running out of ice easily and about low water pressure on the water dispenser have turned out not to be issues at all. The lighting is fantastic, and the drawers are convenient and easily accessible. I would strongly recommend this fridge.

    We've had the refrigerator for a month and are totally happy with our purchase. The lighting in the refrigerator and freezer is great. Easy to find things. The pantry tray is a great feature. Great place for cheese, lunch meat and the other third of the drawer for cartons of yogurt. Even with the small shelves in the left door, there is plenty of room for condiments. Love the self that flips up! Great feature! The placement of the filter is handy. You don't have to empty out a shelf to get at the filter to replace it. I was a little apprehensive going from a side by side to the French door. I am pleasantly surprised. The freezer is easy to organize and access items.

    My first impression of the fridge was absolute love, as I got to know it more things changed. It's a great fridge and it has great features. However, I put it to the test to see how well foods stay fresh and it passed with excellent stars. I do love my fridge indeed.... Except I wish the ice maker ( internally) wouldn't occupy so much space . I've learned to work around it. My second wish would be for more space on the shelves ... I'm talking about swinging door that accompanies the ice maker side. The side shelves should be bigger and wider . Overall it saved me a tons of money on my light bill it's stylish and sleek, its built to last a life time , it's a Smart fridge if you ask me! ..

    Ice maker defective! Not worth it!

    After about 7 months we noticed no ice coming out and the ice maker just making a loud noise. The ice maker was completely frozen over inside and unable to dispense or make any ice. We then read some more reviews of this fridge and many people are having the same issue every month or so and have to completely defrost it. It hasn’t even been 3 weeks since the last freeze up and today it has been jammed up and is frozen over again. We are very unhappy with this fridge as it was expensive. Will never buy Samsung again.

    At least three times a week since we got it, I say " I LOVE this refrigerator!" It's so well lit, and I don't have to open both doors for the things I retrieve most often. It's great having the freezer on the bottom since I now have all of the fridge at a more reachable level. Best of all, I never thought our water needed a filter, so never used one, but the water coming out of the filter through the door does taste noticeably better! I even use the crushed ice now and I'm not really an "ice" person. The alarm did go off once when my husband had the door open a little too long. It was nice having the door be the "bad guy" for a change. I would absolutely recommend this refrigerator!

    Best Fridge on the Market!

    I bought this fridge along with 3 other Samsung appliances, and I'm blown away! The 28 cu ft is very well done, it feels like no matter how much I buy I can still see everything in my fridge without feeling cluttered. It's amazing what an extra 1 or 2 cubic feet can do! I get compliments on the finish every time someone comes over. It is real stainless though, meaning magnets won't stick to it and it does smudge, but it's easily cleaned with stainless cleaner. Ironically everyone in my family bought new fridges within a year of each other and the only one's who don't regret their decision are the one's who bought Samsung. The exceptional quality is obvious, and it wasn't any more expensive then the others.

    These Samsung fridges have a manufacturing flaw that causes the fan to freeze over and stop cooling the fridge. We bought this fridge 9 months ago and it has happened twice in the last 6 weeks were we lost all the food in the fridge while the fan had to be defrosted. If you google this problem you will see it is widespread and someone even filed a lawsuit against Samsung. We have tried dealing with Samsung to get it fixed and it has been a nightmare. Over two weeks without a fridge and they still have not come to fix it. We are waiting for "parts". Customer service at Samsung is awful too.

    More than ample space, classy and yes smudge resistant! The refrigerator comes with a 10 year warranty on the compressor, I did however add on the extended Geek Squad warranty. The set up is nice as far as drawers, and compartments, I appreciate the ability to slide shelves up or back to accommodate larger/taller items. The ice maker has not run “dry” yet and the freezer drawer slides are smooth. CONS: I have noticed frost effect, as if it was left open. This makes me nervous! The left door lacks space but is made up for on the right hand side door.

    Very pleased, bought this item after looking at plenty of other brands. The ice compartment is partially on the door and also inside the fridge but not bulky which was great becuase other brands offered bulkier options or slimmer ice makers for an additional price. The 28 cu. Ft. offers great space for my family of 5, and the partially retractable shelves were amazing for my leftover holiday dishes like the turkey which I would have otherwise would not have been able to store as is in my old fridge. My produce also seems to last longer with the drawer with 3 temp controls and two others with humidity control. Definetly a great buy and great stainless steel look!

    Overall we love this fridge- it's a deceptively big and has a decent amount of flexibility with the shelf arrangement. For things like extra milk you can slide a part of a shelf back to allow for the tall items. The freezer arrangement is great too, and the drawers slide really easily. The only downside we've seen is the ice maker- when you try to get ice from the fridge you'd better have a large bowl ready because that stuff flies out in all directions. Otherwise love it.
