Product Reviews

Overall - Just About Satisfied, but not Delighted

Pros: Quiet

Cons: mediocre / very average quality

"Product replaced a 15 yr old samsung fridge that had passed its best.

The biggest disappointment is that the front of the appliance needs to stand quite a way forward of the opening in order for the doors to open without bumping... this was not a problem with the old unit (that was exactly the same width) - without remodelling the kitchen there is no way round this... there must be a way to design the door so that it can open properly in its own width...

The second problem is the adjustment of the angle of the front .. my floor is level, but the unit would only adjust with quite a tilt back... I have had to build up the level at the back of the unit to overcome this. The installation service couldn't adjust this out using the built in adjusters - nor could I - so I did it with multiple pieces of old carpet after they had gone.... not ideal.

The quality of the stainless steel does not quite match up to my built in siemens appliances... the place where you push on the door flap to open it appears to be indenting a bit already... will need to monitor this...

BUT - it is such a hassle to think about adjusting the kitchen or having to sell the unit on that we are going to live with it for a while...

The features like the door 'milk flap', water and ice are all excellent, and a must have in any fridge unit... "

Amazing fridge freezer. Great value!

Pros: Access door, Quiet, Ease to use, Good build quality, Value for money, Looks good

Cons: No light on water dispenser

"We spent a lot of time researching large fridge/freezers and this one came up trumps in all respects. The key for us was cost of running, good reputation and quality. As an added bonus, there is a door to access much used items like milk, without having to open the main door and thus introduce heat and cost! Fabulous idea and a real boon. Our ONLY disappointment is that the ice/water dispenser doesn’t have a light! How odd to have missed that one Samsung!"

Nearly Perfect

Pros: Quiet, Ease to use, Good build quality, Value for money, Looks good

Cons: None

"Wow, had a Samsung American fridge freeze before and decided 12 years was long enough, so bought another one. What can I say, does everything it says on the tin. Great access panel, home bar, water and Ice machine and looks a treat. Great capacity in the freezer now that the ice machine is on the door and a lovely extending drawer when you need a bit more height on the shelf below.

With the 5 year guarantee on parts and labour and a 10 year guarantee on the digital pump, which I might add you can't hear, it's almost a 5 star. Just would like it to come with a pack of beers and a bottle of wine for the wife to be 5 stars : )"

Good looking product with good capacity

Pros: Quiet, Value for money, Looks good

Cons: None

"We bought this product over another because the other wasn’t in stock. Very happy with purchase- good looking, better freezer capacity due to smaller ice storage than other product. The milk ‘mini door’ is a good feature to avoid unnecessary opening of the full door letting the cold out. Reasonable pricing against other similar products. "

Chilled Out

Pros: Quiet, Ease to use, Good build quality, Value for money, Looks good

"After long debate and research we decided on this american style fridge freezer for value for money and loaded with features that are simple enough and extremely useful. Not all features are for personal use but serve to keep the product in excellent working order.

Some of the useful features we have noticed came after day 2 and the grandkids. One of them had spotted us filling ice in the glass before topping it up with chilled water. ONly as you can imagine the kiddie had to try and next minute we had an ice shower and a game of pick up. So from then on the control lock has been on everytime the ankle munchers come to visit.

One final thing that is worthy of a mention is the delivery crew who worked like torjans getting it into the house and into place. So I'd like to say a massive thank you to the crew of vehicle HEY V 145F for your outstanding customer satisfaction. "
