I had a Whirlpool side by side and as a gourmet cook who entertains a lot, never had room for my big serving dishes in it!  I never thought I would like the french door models but it was the only other option at the home improvement store and we couldn't afford a commercial grade so I gave it a whirl.

I love it!  This unit is the same size as our old side by side but because of it's wide layout, seems to hold a lot more!  For Thanksgiving I fixed two casseroles and three desserts and got it all in the fridge along with a month's worth of groceries from our shopping trip the day before.

With a large family for holidays and entertaining, the dual ice makers have been a godsend and we don't have to buy ice.  Plus, I love the LED lights and the water and ice makers.  I also like the being able to adjust the temperature. 

The freezer on the bottom seems pretty big and it is but it will also fill up quickly. I like the slide out tray which is good for small things like pints of ice cream and packs of lunch meat or hot dogs.

All though pricier than some of the other models, I think it was worth it and will last many years.

Bought our first refrigerater in Twenty years. Wanted to make sure it was a good purchase cause it would be awhile hopefuly before having to buy another one. We liked the looks of this one the ease of having the freezer at the bottom. The style of the french doors. Overall look great. We got it delivered and within a week someone had to come out and look at it. Was not keeping our milk cold. Tested the temp of milk it was only 45 degrees when the frig reading on the door read 34 degrees. Tested the temp control on the back and that was broke...Had to order another..Got the new one put in and now it works great...My only complaint would be the ice machine. When you want just cubes you will get some crushed with it. Also it claims to make 8 pounds of ice, I don't believe this. If you have family get togetheres have ice on back up you are going to need it.

the
25.5 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator
Model Number: RF268ABBP/XAA Serial Number: 1332F we purchased in 9/2010 is out of warranty, live chat sent me to service for rust on outside door below icemaker, this was a very expensive purchase, on of which i thought would not have any issues until maybe 12-15 years of use, there isn't anything samsung will do according to live chat, so unless i fix the rust, i will have a hole in the front panel, i will not purchase another samsung.

    Comments about Samsung French Door Refrigerator:

    Our family was on a refrigerator search for a year but ended quickly as soon as we saw this fridge. We loved the stainless steel elegant design this one had. The french door style allows more room for food to be refrigerated, which is perfect for our family since we don't freeze much. The shelves are also adjustable for tall items such as pitchers. It also plays a little tune just in case you leave the door slightly open. The LED light on the water and ice display is beautiful and easy to understand. They have pictures of water, ice cubes, or crushed ice. I can also fit a nice reasonably tall glass underneath for water. The only reason why I am giving this review 4 stars is that one time, the ice machine got a little stuck, and a bunch of ice cubes fell out all at once when I opened the door. It was the first issue I had with the fridge, and so far the only one. Overall, great deal for an amazing fridge.

    Great concept, just doesn't measure up.

    Comments about Samsung French Door Refrigerator:

    Initially we loved this Samsung product. But the glitter has fallen off, and now we are just o.k. with it. The frost buildup on products in the freezer compartment is awful. I don't mean around the freezer, but in/on the foods. And trying to find something in it when 3/4 full or more is very frustrating. The ice/water dispenser takes up a HUGE amount of space. Our old one was 1/2 and worked fine. Veggies need humidity, fruit need low to keep produce fresh. Regardless of the fancy dials, they do not work well at all. And, going more vegetarian, the fruit and veggie drawers are too few and too small. The adjustable shelves are nice; if you have an empty fridge. Otherwise, not very useful. The quick access freezer shelf is awkward. Don't get me wrong --- this unit has some good ideas, but the end product just doesn't quite measure up to the concepts.

    Comments about Samsung French Door Refrigerator:

    I am a huge Samsung fanatic, from there televisions, to there appliances, they never have let me down. When I first bought my Samsung refrigerator I was immediately impressed. There is so much room inside this product, I was simply blown away. One of my favorite things about this item is the inside light. When you open the doors the light is dim, and then gets brighter. So for those late night drinks or snacks it doesn't immediately blind you when you open the door. The ice maker, and water dispenser are also great. Never any issues with over freezing or anything like that. There are shelves inside that you can push under another to create more space for different grocery items. If you don't have enough shelf space, just pull out the retractable shelf inside for space. I highly recommend this refrigerator to anyone looking at buying it. The prices for Samsung is a little higher than most, but it is worth it in every way.

    Comments about Samsung French Door Refrigerator:

    We don't own this refrigerator, but my parents do and they absolutely love it. I am extremely jealous of it every time I visit! They came to purchase it after researching it for a long time, and when it is time to upgrade to a new refrigerator, this one is currently at the top of my list.

    From a pure aesthetic perspective, this design is so sleek looking. But from an actual convenience perspective, it's even better. I still cannot get over how huge it is! When you open the doors there is just a ton of space and the way it is set up is just perfect for how you need to store items.

    They don't have the in-door water filtration and ice dispensing mechanism. I used to have a refrigerator like that and used it all the time, so I can understand why people would want to have it. However, I started hearing how they weren't very sanitary and I switched to using a brita filter. I actually really love doing this, as the water is colder and tastes fresher.

    Overall, great refrigerator!

    Samsung's Well Designed 26.0 Cu. Ft. Refrigerator

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Samsung French Door Refrigerator:

    I love this refrigerator. It looks good, runs quiet, and has plenty of space. It's designed well to maximize the space. It may actually be designed too well as my fridge usually looks half empty now because it's probably a bigger model than I need, but that's a nice luxury to have.

    Noise Level
    This model is really quiet. Even when the compressor is running it's still really quiet and you hardly notice that it's running.

    Interior Organization
    I love how the interior is designed. With the bottom freezer you can easily separate your foods in the fridge part, the French door area. I keep my dairy products together and fresh fruits along with leftovers and drinks. I used to just stick everything in all together but the fridge is so well designed that just putting things into place separates your items.

    Temperature Control
    Has separate temperature controls for each large compartment of your fridge. Easy to adjust and control the settings.

    Ease of Cleaning
    Because of the shelves and the compartments there are a lot of corners and cracks that can be hard to clean when something gets spilled down into that area, but for the most part, just wipe and go. Pretty simple.

    Durability
    Comes with a warranty including parts and labor for a year with an additional warranty offered. I haven't had any issues whatsoever.

    Design
    It looks really great in my kitchen. It's a beautiful appliance that matches with with my other high-end appliances.

    Very loud

    By 

    from Loris, SC

    Comments about Samsung French Door Refrigerator:

    We love the size of the fridge, but when the ice drops, it wakes the dead. It is probably the biggest drawback. Also, the ice maker takes up a huge chunk of the fridge. I find that terribly annoying and a waste of space. However, the freezer on the bottom is a major plus, although at times it can be back breaking. It would have been smarter to put the ice maker connected to the bottom like LG did. It is a "known issue" by Samsung about the noise. They took away some of the insulation around the ice maker to make it bigger, however this definitely affected the sound. You cannot watch tv, be on the phone, or try and sleep when someone is getting ice. It is next to impossible. It is that loud.

    Noise Level
    The ice maker is very loud when the ice drops or when you try and get some from the ice maker.

    Interior Organization
    You can move the shelves up and down, which makes it easier to put tall things like milk in. If you need to shuffle your food around, you can do that, like when you put a cake in, the heights adjust to fit.

    Temperature Control
    The temperature control is simple, with a touch of a button on the outside. I find it is very precise and you can have a range of temperatures. However, I get confused with some of the internal temperature controls.

    Ease of Cleaning
    Find that it's very difficult to keep it clean inside, and all the nooks and crannies where liquids get stuck. The drawers all come out to get cleaned, however.

    Big, beautiful and so roomy

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Samsung French Door Refrigerator:

    Overall I highly recommend this refrigerator

    Noise Level
    It does make some weird noises sometimes

    Interior Organization
    Love the interior the refrigerator being on top (rather then a top freezer) is so much nicer. Less bending up and down, since everything is up. Your in the refrigerator so much more then your freezer. A very nice change for me. It has so many compartments so big. There are a lot of shelves inside that can be arranged and adjusted to your specifics. Two huge vegetable and fruit drawers each with a temperature control, which works great. I find they keep my fruits and vegetables fresher longer than my previous refrigerators Lots of shelves on the door and a special chill drawer , excellent for chilling wine. The freezer is very big and has a top drawer that slide in an out. It's very big & stores so much more than my top freezers did.

    Temperature Control
    There is a power freezer button that freezes stuff in the freezer almost immediately. It's great. All other controls work nicely as well.

    Ease of Cleaning
    Wipes clean very easily inside and out. Some people think the stainless steel is hard to keep clean and leaves fingerprints. That is NOT the case with mine. A clean damp sponge or towel cleans it up beautifully. No soaps or cleaners needed. Inside is just as easy to clean.

    Durability
    So far with three daughters and a granddaughter living with me - durability is fine. It's tough and strong.

    Design
    The design is what sold me. I love the big French doors, so much easier to access everything and the large two areas in the freezer on the bottom works well for us.

    Comments about Samsung French Door Refrigerator:

    I have this in white and i think it's great. It needed repair once but it was fast, easy, and did not lose coldness. An expensive appliance for me, but we don't regret it. I was leary about a foreign brand. As a whirlpool devotee, I don't regret it. I would purchase other Samsung appliances.

    Noise Level
    You can hear when the ice drops into the bin but it's not loud. It's not like we didn't know it made ice. Ice crusher is loud breaking up the ice, but we use cubes more.

    Interior Organization
    Has adjustable shelves, so if you don't like it, move it around.Customize it to suit your needs.

    Temperature Control
    I've never had temp changes. No spikes or drops.

    Ease of Cleaning
    The top shelf is high, and I use a wheelchair, so hubby cleans that part for me and neither of us has a complaint.

    Durability
    "Dings" rather easily

    Design
    The freezer draw is a bit difficult for me (but I'm a wheelchair user) and it "dings " the metal door when it hits my chair. Like the drawer in the freezer. Holds enough for 2 but a bigger family?

    Comments about Samsung French Door Refrigerator:

    I love this refrigerator. It has plenty of room. I also LOVE the adjustable shelves. I have all Samsung appliances and would definitely recommend them to anybody who was looking to replace appliances. The only problem is the ice dispenser, It always gives a little water when getting ice. I LOVE IT

    Noise Level
    Makes normal noises you would expect from an ice maker. Makes a high pitched whining noise when the door is shut for about 3 seconds.

    Interior Organization
    The shelves are all adjustable. I love the shelf in the middle. It slides under the back shelf so tall items can be placed where it is convenient. The large compartments in the door are even large enough to hold a gallon of milk.

    Temperature Control
    This feature is fantastic. I love being able the change the temperature of the large sliding drawer.

    Ease of Cleaning
    Very easy to clean inside and out. The door compartments easily pop out and can be placed directly in the dishwasher.
