    Tried to keep it short. I failed. I read all the reviews and specs of many filters and decided to continue buying genuine Samsung filters. I didn't have to modify the 'teeth' to fit in my fridge. It just worked like the ones I was buying from Lowe's or Home Depot. Getting them from Best Buy means points and $10 savings by getting a subscription. Thanks for catching up with the rest of the commodity e-tailers. Why genuine Samsung: We were really tired of spending $50 every six months. One year we bought two so it didn't feel so bad replacing the second one. So we started looking for cheaper replacements. I'll save you the details and give you the bottom line: Samsung's filters filter out more harmful stuff than the cheaper ones. The cheap ones only filter out 'taste' and one even claims to not filter out "helpful nutrients" so you feel good about buying it. What they mean is IRON because they don't filter out diddly but chlorine and large contaminates. We get our water from a well and have a Whole-House filter right at the pump. The genuine fridge filters filter out a lot of bacteria, microbes, metals and yes, Iron. Our water is triple-filtered (Earth>well filter>fridge filter) so it's pretty safe, and this is safer. But if I lived where I had to use "city water," I'd want to protect myself after hearing of so many municipalities’ water systems failing suddenly and large communities being told not to drink the water for the foreseeable future. Don't let your child be the first symptom to your city's water problems.

    If you have a water dispenser in your Samsung refrigerator, you have 3 choice when it comes to filters. You can go without, you can purchase Samsung's replacement filter or you can buy an aftermarket product. Of course you could go with an alternative filter device like a Brita or a reverse osmosis device. Because we were unable to find any test results for the aftermarket product, we opted for the Samsung branded product which is at a 2-3x price of an aftermarket filter. If you follow the suggested 6 month replacement interval your paying about $100 a year for the filters. The Samsung product seem to work well when removing chlorine and other objectionable tastes. However, since I don't have a lab at my disposal, I don't know how effective it is at eliminating harmful chemicals.

    Performs as Expected, a Little Expensive

    This filter performs as expected based on the specs of the refrigerator and the filter. It's easy to install, although if you are short you are going to have a hard time reaching the back of the fridge in the upper right (if your filter unit is in the same place mine is). Two things I don't like is that when you remove the filter a fair amount of water will spill into the fridge and need to be cleaned up and when first installing a new filter you will need to flush two gallons of water through. This seems pretty standard though as far as filters go. I also have a PUR filter installed on my kitchen sink faucet. I had the water tested from that along with water from the Samsung fridge. The quality was nearly identical with the PUR filter actually doing slightly better. It makes me wonder why I continue to use the fridge, but the main reason I think is because the water coming out of the fridge is much cooler than the faucet. If it wasn't I probably wouldn't use my Samsung fridge for water at all.

    Tricky Installation

    When the existing filter cartridge is removed, it should be turned ALL THE WAY around and in the direction indicated. Then let the existing filter cartridge drop down. This will ensure that the locking mechanism inside the fridge is in the fully unlocked position so the New Filter Cartridge can be inserted fully. When the existing Filter Cartridge is turned partially, it will tend to drop down. However, the locking mechanism inside the fridge will NOT be in the fully unlocked position. In this condition when the New Filter Cartridge is inserted, it will NOT go in all the way and can’t be turned and locked.

    Is it worth the cost?

    Heck if I can claim to be an expert on water filters for refrigerators. When it was time to replace my old filter, I searched for option. Samsung put out its own replacement, and I found a more generic brand for a lot cheaper. I have never tested the content of the water coming out of the fridge using different water filters. Nor have I compared the taste of the water using different water filters. (I have well water.) So, the question became would I pay more for a water filter designed by Samsung or pay less for a water filter made by someone else. I felt more comfortable buying one from Samsung. I've been happy with it so far.

    So Simple

    5.5 months after purchasing the Samsung refridgerator, the water light display turned pink and I needed to change the water filter. I ordered online, picked it up at the store and drove home. I dreaded the possible issues and it sat on my kitchen table for days. When the display turned bright red I knew time was up and I set about the task. 1-clear some shelf space,2-put down a paper towel,3-pull off the old and slip on the new....who knew it could be soooo simple? Chalk it up to another great feature of this Samsung-what a terrific purchase!

    Why so expensive?

    This filter is nice beacuse you replace the whole can. It comes with month stickers so if you dont want to rely on the display to keep track of it you can just slap a month sticker right on the thing. However you can buy alot of bottled water and bagged ice for the price of this thing. It just seems that as many of these filters that samsung must make that there could be a cheaper price on them. But if you dont have it, the water isnt that good. So what can you do. I think best buy should put a filter price right on the fridges in the store so you know ahead of time.

    Seems excessively expensive

    This filter needs to be replaced every 6-8 months. It costs $50. If you replace it 30 times over the life of your refrigerator, you end up paying for the refrigerator twice based on a $1500 refrigerator cost! Seems expensive for such a small relatively simple apparatus. It shouldn't cost any more than an oil filter for your car, i.e. $8. Next time I'm going to insist on getting a refrigerator without water dispensing. Also, the ice maker doesn't work properly and is not repairable. So much for Samsung.
