    This review is for the Samsung counter depth refrigerator model number RF23J9011SR/AA. We've had this refrigerator for about two weeks. Overall, we absolutely love it. We are a family of 4. We do not stock up on food. We tend to shop several times a week as we live very close to a grocery store. So the counter depth design not only looks great, it has plenty of space for us. So much so, that we have yet to come close to filling it. I believe it would be fine for families of our size that tend to stock up. The refrigerator section is wide and shallow keeping everything within easy reach and view. Hopefully this will cut down on forgotten leftovers hidden in the back that come to resemble biological experiments. The ice maker makes ice cubes at a rate that is on par with every other ice maker on the market including Sub-Zero (I'm getting about 160 cubes/day). The French door freezer design was my #1 reason for purchasing it. Each side of the freezer has two good-sized pull out drawers, a top pull out shelf and shelves in the door to keep everything organized. Each side of the freezer can be set to a different temperature. We use one side as a standard freezer for things like frozen veggies. The other side we set to "Soft Freeze" and use for meat, fish, and sandwich meat. The food doesn't freeze solid, but is kept really cold and fresh! So we gain more refrigerator space as we don't store any meat in that section. I love not having one, giant freezer drawer so that I don't have to bend over and dig for frozen food. Freezers with one big drawer also collect debris on the bottom: crumbs and hair. Yuk! There are a few, minor annoyances that, all tolled, keep me from giving it 5 stars: First, the doors are not smudge/fingerprint free and require frequent wiping. Secondly, the recessed door handles, while they look stylish, are a bit of a pain. You can't grab them naturally with either hand. My 10 year old son was the first to point this out. You either have to open the right door with your left hand and vice versa or you have to twist your right hand with your thumb pointing down to open the right doors and similarly with the left. Third, none of the drawers pull out far enough. They all have a stop which I feel is too short. Lastly, and this one is very very minor, while it is generally very quite, it does emit a gurgling sound on occasion. I know for sure that it is not the water line because it made that sound before we even hooked it up. To address some issues I've read about in other reviews (from many different sites) Issue 1) "It only lasted a year and a half.": 2015 is the first year this model was released and there were no previous versions of it. So these reviews must be for the non-counter depth version of this model. The /AA in the model number indicates country of manufacture which is the USA. So the AA is not a version indicator. Issue 2) "The outside sweats and drips water all over the floor.": The manual clearly states that if this happens, turn off the "Energy Saver Mode." This could happen in humid environments. Issue 3) "Ice cube making rate is slow.": There are several issues here clearly addressed in the manual. First, upon installation, it may take several days before it makes ice cubes at its normal rate. Secondly, the rate is dependent upon the temperature to which you have the freezer set. Initially, our freezer was set to 0 degrees Fahrenheit and the rate was slow. I set it to -2 and am getting a rate of about 140-160 cubes per day which is the same as every other refrigerator on the market. Issue 4) "You can't pull out the ice maker bucket to access the ice cubes en bulk." This one is just not true. Maybe they didn't pull hard enough or they are talking about a different model.

    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!

    Looks Great and Boasts Extra Features

    This fridge is sharp looking. From day one I used the bottom right panel as an additional refrigerator instead of a freezer. It is very convenient. The counter depth size looks good in my kitchen but be warned, it’s limiting in cubic feet. The features such as cool select and the door alarm are good for our needs. Also I’ve used the power cool after the door has been opened for long stretches - groceries and cleaning. That’s a great feature. After only a month I had a spill that dripped in the glass shelving and had to call Samsung. One hour later on the phone learned one row of shelves could not come out. This is an issue for me, as I am used to constantly cleaning the fridge and shelves. Perhaps I’d have chosen another model had I known. I still think they can be removed but I don’t want to risk breaking the plastic clips. Will keep trying to call Samsung for help and maybe can get an answer. Overall a pretty product which fit nicely and in my space .lots of extras... that was a big reason to buy it. Also it’s taller than most so measure your space before buying.

    Good machine with a few caveats

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    The fridge works great and fits nicely in the kitchen. The temperatures are constant and indicated on the door. The fridge has a good amount of space. I like the French doors and the freezer compartment which is easy to access most everything without digging in though the top portions are shelves instead of drawers. The cons for the fridge are small but I do wish I had paid closer attention to them before as I might not have chosen this machine: No bin for meat/cheese (unless I turn the extra lower section into a fridge). No spot for a butter dish. There is not that much space for things in the doors and one can't adjust those shelves. The left side compartments are completely smooshed by the ice maker and pretty useless in terms of space. The right side is tight for all the taller type sauce bottles/ juices that I have. The shelves in the main fridge are adjustable but it's not that practical to change things from originally configures. But the current configuration really doesn't fit juice cartons that well. I'm still getting used to a smaller fridge and a French door type and haven't quite figured out the best arrangement for things. The slide shelf sounds great but in practical terms you really don't want to give up any space. It's not that big a fridge. Finally, and I knew about this from other reviews: the fridge gurgles and bubbles when the compressor turns on. It's much louder than the "quiet" rating given by Consumer reports. Luckily it's not all the time but when it's gurgling, it's annoying.

    I had looked at this Samsung model and read the reviews before finally buying it and I both agree and disagree with some of the recent reviews I read. We have an open plan kitchen /family room and do not hear the fridge running at all except when first installed and hearing the ice maker initially making the ice as is normal in any make fridge!! It is a VERY quiet fridge. We are retired so wanted the counter depth and it is adequate for us and fits perfectly into the space between cabinets. Looks so smart!! A big draw back for me is that this particular model does NOT have a dairy drawer that most french door models have. You can buy the same fridge in the Chef model at a hefty $2,500 more with all the bells and whistles and it includes the dairy drawer or use the lower freezer right side as a fridge instead as an option in this fridge but takes away from freezer space. Something else we encountered was that the hinges on top of the fridge are large so if you have cabinets above the space you are using for it the fridge will only go in about 3/4 way unless there is adequate head room. We had to plane of 1/2" across width to push it all the way in. I had read in other reviews about leaving extra 2" each side for allowing the doors to open which we knew would work for us but never considered the height which was the problem!! Best Buy were helpful with all our needs and delivery was fast and efficient.

    Beautiful, Well Designed Fridge

    This review is mostly for usability/function and appearance. We have only had this fridge for a month, so durability/wear and longevity have not yet been tested. This is a beautiful fridge was a nice finish (Black stainless). No problems so far with scratches or fingerprints, but we also have stopped putting magnets on our fridge because we are afraid of the potential damage to the finish. The LED lights are nice looking, the display is elegant, and overall, its a very spiffy looking fridge. The side by side freezer design is very nice and convenient. It's a lot easier finding items in the freezer (compared to the drawer designed). The convertible 4th compartment is a nice convenience (but we haven't changed it to function other than a freezer so far). Ice cubes are a little on the small side. We did lose a little storage space going to this fridge from our previous side-by-side fridge. But the French door design is great! The storage on the left door is a little small (to make space for the ice machine), but there is still plenty of shelving and door space for our family. I read reviews complaining about the gurgling/bubbling noise. The fridge does gurgle at times, but it is not loud. It doesn't both us. Overall, I'm very happy with our purchase.

    We decided it was time for an upgrade and purchased a refrigerator, range, and dish washer. The refrigerator is a nice looking appliance. It's pretty large. It’s a 4 door refrigerator and a nice feature is you can choose the bottom right hand side as either a refrigerator or a freezer. Since we have 2 other freezers, we chose to use it as a refrigerator. There is quite a bit of room in this appliance as well. I am, however, amazed at how LOUD it is. I can be in the living room and hear it plainly. With the amount of money we spent on this thing, I would have expected it to be quieter than the 20+ one we got rid of but no. The water and ice in the door was something I was used to and wanted again. The water is filtered and changing the filter is a breeze as its right up front where it is accessible. I don’t know if other refrigerators are like this but it is very s l o w when it comes to dispensing ice. Perhaps I don’t have the patience I used to have but it seems to take forever to fill a normal sized water glass. Other than it being loud and slow to dispense ice, I like the fridge.
