I wished there was a kick stand on bottom so it can hold the door when your arms are full or have a heavy skillet that you want to put in there. Then you can pull it up or toggle a lever when you've finished.
I have to fight w/ the door ... or prop something against it. Which doesn't always work very well.

Noise Level
I enjoy the quietness however sometimes the ice maker will make me jump.
- Even from time to time, it scares the dogs, too. LOLOL
I like the alarm sounds to let ya know that the refrigerator door has been standing open for one minute, It is NOT intrusive; just a light ding ding ding :)

Interior Organization
Refrigerator: Love the spacious veggie drawers!
Can't stand 3 liter bottles on any of the shelves. It doesn't have a dedicated area for the eggs. We use the bottom shelving most of the time.
Freezer:
I like to freeze small water bottles but can't lay 'em in the ice basket.. not enough room.
Have to fight the gallon of ice cream in the freezer ... needs to be about 2 or 3 inches wider.

Temperature Control
I love that we can set the temperate - digitally. that way we KNOW it is accurate!!!

Ease of Cleaning
All the shelves are easy to take out & put back in. Thx so much!!

Durability
Seems to be holding up - so far so good! We're coming up on the one year anniversary for this being in our home. Purchased brand new from Aarons Rental.

Design
It is very beautiful on the outside, but noticed that it scratches easily.
Like I said on the bottom freezer drawer .. needs to be about 2 or 3 inches wider so it'd be easier to get gallon (w/ handle) of ice cream out.
Doesn't have a specific area for eggs.

I bought this because I thought I'd like the wider shelves on a refrigerator which had a bottom freezer (I was getting rid of a side-by-side.) But that was a mistake, at least with this refrigerator, because I just hate the freezer on the bottom in this particular unit. It is hard to see what is in the freezer and the drawers in the freezer don't move well. Things fall behind the drawers onto the floor of the unit and then I have to pull out the whole drawer, retrieve the item, and try to push a heavy freezing drawer back onto the track and in place. The front "door" to the ice-making unit cracked almost immediately, too. Poorly thought out and poorly made. I would not buy Samsung again.

    Comments about Samsung Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator:

    We didn't want or need all the bells and whistles. Ice and water dispenses are reasons for repair and service calls. Replacing filters is pricey. We manage great with just an ice maker. Love the built in look. Love the curved door. Price was fantastic.

    Great for a family of 3 or less

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Samsung Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator:

    This refrigerator is an overall great appliance. I have a family of 5 so we need a great deal of groceries and it is sometimes difficult to fit it all in. You are unable to fit pitchers, milk, anything with any height on it, on the shelves. However, the wide bottom shelf on the inside of the door is perfect for these things as long as you don't have multiple of any items. The freezer is not that bad, as a matter of fact I think that the drawers make it easier to organize. It is a bit difficult to fit larger items but it can be done. If you have a family of 3 or less, this is perfect for you.

    Noise Level
    Ice maker is a bit loud when re-filling the water, but not so much and so long that you cannot get used to it.

    Interior Organization
    Love the sliding snack box.

    Comments about Samsung Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator:

    Nice unit with a lot of space. Easy to read readout and not too hard to adjust. A ton of room in the refrigerator and not too bad in the freezer. Not really user friendly for a pitcher of juice and the drawers in the freezer could be easier to use and of a better design to provide more room. Holds temp well and it is a very quiet runner. The interior drawers in the refrigerator part can be a little stubborn to open. Solid glass shelves are very strong and easy to adjust. Not quite worth the asking price.

    Noise Level
    Quiet runner.

    Interior Organization
    Lots of space in the refrigerator but not designed for a pitcher of something. Also the interior shelves in the fridge and freezer and be stubborn to open.

    Ease of Cleaning
    Ton of room inside the refrigerator and the freezer makes it easy to reach in and clean.

    Durability
    Glass shelves are very strong but plastic drawers could be make a little better.

    Design
    Solid design that provides you with a lot of room. Could use improvements.

    Fan stopped working after a year.

    By 

    from North Ridgeville, OH

    Comments about Samsung Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator:

    I bought this and within a year it started to make a funny sound, turns out the ice had made its way up the back of the freezer into the fridge and the fan kept hitting the block of ice. A repair man had to come out, order a new part, tear the entire fridge apart and rebuild it. Said it was a common issue in these types of fridges because of the materials they are made out of. Its a good thing we had an extra fridge in the garage because we were unable to use our fridge for a week!

    Interior Organization
    Could be better

    this is a wonderful 3 door refigerator, lots of space

    By 

    from Waycross, GA

    Comments about Samsung Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator:

    This is a wonderful refigerator, so easy to clean and so spacious. We love it. It is quiet running and the temperature stays at a set control temp. keeping everything fresh and cold. The freezer has two drawers that keep things frozen just right. No more half frozen ice cream, it is frozen just right. We love this Samsung Refigerator.

    ATTRACTIVE AND GOOD VALUE

    By 

    from Turlock, CA

    Comments about Samsung Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator:

    PROS: THIS SAMSUNG BOTTOM FREEZER REFRIGERATOR WITH STAINLESS STEEL LOOK EXTERIOR FINISH HAS A GREAT STREAMLINED LOOKING EXTERIOR, THE HANDLES ARE RECESSED, CONTRIBUTING TO A BUILT IN SMOOTH LOOK, FITTING IN WITH NEARLY ANY DECOR STYLE. THIS ALSO HELPS IN REDUCING SOILING ETC ON THE DOORS. WE RECEIVE ALOT OF COMPLIMENTS FROM GUEST ON HOW GREAT IT LOOKS! THE REFRIGERATOR WAS PURCHASED ABOUT 2+ YEARS AS A REPLACEMENT FOR AN OLDER SIDE BY SIDE MODEL. IT WAS PURCHASED VIA LOWES, IT WAS DISCOUNTED FROM RETAIL BY 100.00.  IT FEATURES A QUICK CHILL AND QUICK FREEZE FUNCTION ON THE FRONT PANEL WITH LED DISPLAY, AS WELL AS TEMPERATURE SETTINGS AND A CHILD SAFETY LOCK AND OPEN DOOR ALARM. 

    THE FAUX STAINLESS FINISH IS GREAT, DOES NOT SHOW FINGERPRINTS ETC. THE OPEN DOOR ALARM HAS BEEN GREAT, IT HAS SAVED US QUITE A FEW TIMES!  WE HAVE NOT USED THE QUICK CHILL FEATURE, BUT THE QUICK FREEZE FEATURE HAS COME IN HANDY.

    CONS:  THE REFRIGERATOR SHELVES DO NOT HAVE MUCH ROOM FOR ADJUSTMENT, WE HAVE TO LAY DOWN 2 LITER SODA BOTTLES OR FIND ROOM IN THE DOOR. 

    THE CHILD LOCK OUT ON THE LCD PANEL IS NOT VERY EFFECTIVE, HAVE HAD 2 TODDLERS VISITING ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS WHO PUSH THE BUTTON FOR MORE THAN THE 3 SECOND LOCK RELEASE TIME AND HAVE HAD FREEZER TEMP RAISED/LOWERED AS A RESULT.

    THE ONLY OTHER NEGATIVE IS THE RECESSED HANDLE IN THE FREEZER TENDS TO ACCUMULATE CRUMBS/SPILLS FROM THE FRIDGE, A MINOR ISSUE. 

    I WOULD GIVE IT ABOUT A 4.7 OUT OF 5!

    I like the deli drawer at eye level with a clear front panel.

    By 

    from Los Altos, CA

    Comments about Samsung Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator:

    The Samsung platinum stainless steel doesn't show fingerprints.  All drawers in the refrigerator have clear fronts and you can see what is in there before it goes rotten.  The shelves aren't moveable so I have had to learn exactly where to keep tall and short things but that's working out.  I am not really fond of lower freezer units because I find them hard to arrange but I don't use the freezer much so it's working out for me.
