I have one and love it. It's pretty spacious. French doors and a bottom freezer drawer.
My selection was limited. I have cabinets over the space for the fridge. Most refrigerators are tall and narrow. I couldn't buy one of those. Samsung was one of maybe 3 that I could choose from.
I love the clear drawers. I used to buy fruits and vegetables and then forget I'd bought them. This one has saved me quite a bit of money in produce expenses alone. It also has the fingerprint protection so it doesn't show smudges. I bought it from Best Buy.

Make sure he buys the extended service contract for in-home service when needed. Modern refrigerators with ice makers are prone to needing repairs. My parents had a Frigidaire that was old when I was little and ran normally forever, at least twenty or thirty more years. My mom would defrost the freezer once in a while. They don’t make things like that anymore.

We have a Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator -- and while it's a good refrigerator, and a generously sized freezer - the ice maker is a serious problem. Ours started having issues when it was not even a year old but we won it on a game show so there was no returning it. This topic is widely known if you Google issues with the refrigerator. I don't think home appliances are their strong suit. We also do not use the in-fridge camera or the touch screen features. I have used the speakers from time to time but they are pretty bad.

A few years ago I bought the top-of-the-line stackable Samsung washer and dryer. When in use, they are almost dead-silent. The same with my Bosch dishwasher. You can be standing directly in front of it any of these appliances when they're on and have a conversation with someone without raising your voice or talking louder yourself. I've found that the more you pay for a large appliance, the quieter it is.
That said, I also own an Amana refrigerator, which was a middle-line model when I bought it at Sears. For some reason, I never removed the small UPC sticker from inside the freezer door. It is dated 02/25/1996. The fridge is now 24 years old and has never once needed any kind of service. While I'm sure that today's appliances aren't as sturdy as those from years past, I'm still going to buy another Amana when mine finally does need replacing.

R4 is correct. I'm a past Samsung French door refrigerator owner and had NOTHING but trouble. Purchased new and the Ice maker never did work properly - even after 4 in-warranty service calls (I finally tired of taking work off to meet the service guy). On its BEST day - I maybe ended up with 3 ice cubes. After 2 years, I sold it on CL as damaged and bought an Electrolux (never had an issue whatsoever). Wouldn't you know it - a few years later I purchased a new home that came with a new Samsung and again - nothing but trouble with the ice maker in less than a year.

My Samsung Platinum 402 litre fridge was delivered yesterday. I chose Samsung because the price was reasonable, it seems to have a decent rep, is something that passes for reliable and is made in Thailand, not China. Good interior design, providing far more space than the 414 liter I had. The fridge has a "Fresh Room", a plastic tray with a drop-down cover that constitutes the top shelf. Since I hadn't a clue what it was supposed to be for, I removed it, giving me additional space to place tall items on the next shelf down. Huge fruit/veggie "Big Box" bin on the fridge bottom. Shelves are glass, the rest is rather flimsy plastic, but I didn't expect much for the price. One year general warranty, 10 year warranty on the compressor.

It does have speakers. A in-fridge camera. You can program shopping lists and install an app so you can see what’s in the fridge if you should be out shopping. You can also leave notes for your household through the app, send surprise messages or recipes. And it has WiFi and with the speakers you can listen to Spotify or music that way although it’s weak sound. Way more fridge than we needed but we won it. Well, husband did.

We bought Samsung for the same reason as R5. It's 5 years old and the refrigerator part has had no issues, but the ice maker doesn't work like it used to. When new, it could fill a bucket in less than a day. Now, it would take about a week to completely fill the bucket. I've lately noticed the fridge will occasionally make a loud humming sound for a few minutes. We also got the matching stove and dishwasher. The stove has been okay, but the dishwasher has intermittently given us problems. It started leaking, so I Googled issues with it, and it had to do with the steam release area building up with deposits. Once we took that apart and cleaned it, the leaking stopped. It's also gotten louder as time has gone on, and I had an issue one day where it wouldn't shut off, so I turned off the breaker for a few hours and that seemed to re-set it or something. You also can't overload it or it won't clean well. It's almost as if there's not enough spray pressure. We'll be due for a new washer/dryer soon. I won't be getting a front-load washer again, and I won't be getting Samsung.

Do the refrigerators that make ice cubes/dispense cold water require filters? We have 2 refrigerators in our office. The panel indicates when the filter needs to be changed. Otherwise, the water and ice cubes have a funky smell.
Our office now has a machine that dispenses cold water and makes carbonated water. It's pretty cool.

R78 You can read about where exactly the fluoride comes from in treated municipal water supplies: waste end products from Aluminum processing and mining, and the fertiliser business. It's not quite the same as naturally occurring fluoride in mineral waters.
The body takes up fluoride where calcium is meant to deposit; it majes for weaker long bones, and isn't beneficial to health. It is also bad for our thyroids, as it impedes the iodine uptake and regulation in our bodies. It is especially bad for our kidneys as well.
There are great documentaries you can watch on YouTube. I'll try to find one I've watched before I think is quite good, if you're interested. Some believe fluoride is only good for teeth when used topically, yet it is still a cumulative neurotoxin which is almost next to impossible to remove from the body. It will always be in your bones and teeth if you were raised on such water. It's very controversial for many Americans, as I believe all the tap water is fluoridated here. I believe only eight countries fluoridate their water currently. Some are late comers to the fluoride party like Scotland, and there is much resistance against the measure.

I have a Samsung french door/bottom freezer model. No water or ice in the door, just an icemaker/buycket in the freezer drawer. No problems there. But after about 2 years it started having a problem where water collects in the vegetable crisper drawers, or behind/under them. All refrigerators create water condensate as part of the cooling process, and normally it drains down to a pan at the bottom and evaporates. In certain Samsung models, the condensate freezes as it's traveling downward, and creates an "ice dam" and then water starts routing into the vegetable crispers. The solution is a simple $6 part you can order on Amazon but you have to take the inside of the refrig apart and defrost the ice first before replacing the part. The part basically heats up during the defrost cycle and keeps the water from freezing. The original part is undersized. I got the part 4 months ago but haven't gotten around to taking things apart yet. It annoys me enormously.

The problem is that in my area, there aren't a lot of technicians who know how to fix a Samsung fridge (or are willing to) so I don't have a lot of choice and have to accept whatever rates the tech gives me (I think he's reasonable but who knows).

It's indicative of a national consciousness and attitude that screams "We're infallible, because we are Americans." If fluoride in tap sources is so fabulous for health, why are the number of countries so small? Why does the US have such high cases of cancers, kidney disease, and osteoporosis? No one needs this crap taken internally, and systemically absorbed throughout all their tissues in order to have strong teeth. Complete rubbish.

So where do you get your water, R89? You realize that most bottled water is actually tap water bottled by a corporation in plastic bottles which may leach into the water over time? But feel free to think that's somehow better. All the "horrible toxins" in tap water plus the plastic sounds a lot better. *smh*

R90 I already shared my source, and was good enough to include contact info. I highly recommend it... Ituconsidered America's finest, and has no connection to Nestle. See R77.

R90 ...And by the way, it IS better. It's more than a "feeling". I would like you to show a link which proves fluoridated tap water is superior to this springwater for the health of my diminishing kidney function.....
I know I shall be waiting a very long time for such evidence!

This affordable Whirlpool refrigerator is the best on the market. I like that the ice and water dispenser are on the inside of the fridge and not on the outside. Those outer dispensers break and leak and are expensive to repair.
This site also has other model recommendations for different styles and price ranges.

I didn't make any claims about tap water being superior. You made claims that water from another source is superior. But you knew that and are simply trolling. Bye. BTW this thread is about refrigerators.

R95 Bugger off sport, your the one attempting to argue with me what's good for MY health. Prattle on about the fridges then, and leave me out. After having a failed icemaking unit (leaking) in a Samsung fridge, it occurred to me I should make my own ice with the water I have delivered.
You're the troll if that didn't logically follow. I responded earlier to a sincere poster with a couple honest questions... I also apologised for derailing the thread.... If you think the fluoridated tap water is equal to America's oldest, and cleanest spring fine... Don't take the time to friggin pester me about it.

The troll @R96 etc has been triggered. Bye now.

Trolls are notorious for two things: not reading an entire thread, and creating posts to provoke an emotional response.... no other motivation exists for them posting. They ask inane questions to bait others as well.

R99 I really regret giving you wine advice a while back. I didn't even make sport of your cheese in the can either.... Why so nasty? You've tried to tell me the water makes me [italic] feel [/italic] it's better, though I've explained upthread why it's not good.... Then you pompously question what I'm drinking, though I shared that earlier....THEN you go on about friggin' plastics, though I said mine is in glass.... G-d, on and on you go like a wound up top.... Now you're F/F ing me? You're nasty.

What are you talking about? It doesn't even have an ice and water dispenser. It just has a regular old icemaker in the freezer. Which my refrigerator 40 years ago had.
I've never heard of any kind of dispenser being inside -- that would mean you'd have to open the door and hold it open (thus raising the temperature and causing the refrigerator to work harder) the entire time you were getting water. Totally impractical.

Just shutup R100. You are nothing but a troll who maybe made 1 decent post in the distant past. And you started it by calling me a troll in this thread. So think about that when I reacted by calling YOU the troll. Don't dish out troll accusations if you can't take it. And try reading the post that you responded to by calling me a troll. Ridiculous. This place has become a fucked up wasteland of bullshit trolls.

This may sound like a stupid question but do the icemakers in the freezer use filtered water? Is there a filter you have to change periodically?
