I keep getting things to write a review. I ordered this item a month ago. Still not recieved. It says it was shipped on the 9th of July. I called last week and they said it will still be 3 weeks. I am not very happy, but I still want the item, so I am at their mercy.

Review Title: ItsBad | Review by

terrible sensors that are broken, samsung has opted to slowly resolve. I am listening to sensors beep all day and night and its been two weeks since this started. I never write reviews but I am worried people will have to live with the same situation for weeks without resolve. Buy a fridge from any other company that doesn't have built in intelligence that doesn't work.

Everything is good, but disappointed that when we bought on line the description of the refridgerator did not indicate that the cabinet was grey. Reading the description we thought the entire fridge was stainless steel. Not sure if I would recommended to a friend, if I did I make it clear the cabinet is grey not stainless steel as the description appears.

I absolutely love this refrigerator. It is one of the few refrigerators that fits in a small condo and looks good. The only issue that I have is the ice maker is a little loud.

Review Title: Small french door refrigerator | Review by

Overall Rating
This is probably the only French door refrigerator that will fit in a small kitchen. The price is good for a counter depth, but it's unfortunate that we have to pay more for less. It's a good fridge. Quiet, except for water flowing sound.

VERY pleased with service, price,response..right up to delivery! I'm in real estate and showed to one of my clients...and she ordered this week!
Going to take me a couple of weeks to learn how to set up my food on shelves to remember which door to open! LOL. Remodeling whole kitchen and taking down a wall..."all will see when entering condo!" BUT it's a beauty! THANK YOU!
