Great fridge with plenty of space. The fridge is big though therefore the fridge door had to be removed to be able to bring inside. Best to check before buying as there is extra cost involve to get a certified person to remove and refit the door to avoid the warranty to be void.
Noisy and Awkward
Bought this fridge 16/6/19. Noticed it was noisier than my 15 year old fridge straight away. Also deep fridge makes shelves hard to bend down into and vege crisper draw on the right is right on the rubber door and fridge door has to be all the way open to open draw. But just recently the noise is louder and the walls and half inside the fridge is very hot and kept going for hours which I have never had before so I turned the power off to reset the fridge but it went noisy again after 15 minutes.

Lousy after sales sercice
Purchased direct from Samsung Austr. Upon delivery the delivery guys spotted huge dent on the door. Apologised and took it away. More 6 weeks now and no replacement. Multiple calls to them but all to no avail. They kept saying our order have been escalated and even told us it has been despatched to the delivery firm..hmm. That was weeks ago. Still no fridge. If this is how they treat you after payment, imagine trying to claim warranty work...scary. First and last time buying Samsung.

Stainless Black, what an awesome look
so, where do we start, lets get the obvious sorted
1. Great Room.
2. Great Looks
3. Great Space.
Slightly Noisy, i would say perhaps 2-3 DB more than i would have liked it, but you can only notice it at night when the whole house is quiet. Seemed to have fixed this when setting the temp settings lower, overall very happy with the purchase, it met our immediate requirements for space, replaced an old Fisher and paykel, that was just too small for our purposes due to a larger family.
Overall, would have liked some more tech, like a display that showed current temp in each compartment, to assess the right temperature settings but apart from that, i am happy for this purchase.

This is quality! And support to match
Unit is very quiet, and both fridge and freezer compartments maintain temperatures well. When a problem arose getting the unit in through the doors, and fridge door removal was necessary, Samsung support was excellent. Chalk-and-cheese compared to the old Maytag it replaced - and more efficient to boot. One serious problem was the very poor performance by Harvey Norman Delivery/Installation, who provided no help at all, and only wanted to dump the unit in the garage, without bothering to help get it into the house.

Love this fridge, as a family of 5 it is a great size & fits plenty of food. The freezer is also a good size & the fridge is nice & quite. Highly recommended

Great fridge, super efficient.
EDIT follows at the end.
Our second fridge, which lives in the laundry, was on borrowed time with a number of issues. It was also very noisy and very power hungry.
Anyway, I started shopping for a replacement, with many of the fridges we looked at only 2 to 2.5 star rating. No thanks! Finally we went for the large Samsung which is 4 star, freezer on top, and inverter compressor, and “Appliances Online” had the best price on the day including delivery and removal of the old fridge. They were great, kept us informed of delivery time, and a ver...y good experience all round. The Samsung has been running now through a power meter since installed, and is proving to be amazingly quiet and efficient. The compressor is variable speed, typically draws only around 50w and is mostly very quiet unless the fridge has been opened and warm items added, (though gets up to 150w power draw and a little noisy if the compressor is running flat out). Be aware that it will run flat out with noticeable noise for quite a while when first turned on as it pulls the temp down, (though was still quieter even then than our old fridge). However, once it’s down to temperature it’s typically almost inaudible. By the energy label, it should use 375kWh per year, (about 1kWh per day) and thus far, in SUMMER, it’s actually using significantly LESS than that, helped of course by the fact that as a second fridge, it doesn’t get opened as often. Everybody has different needs and wants for a fridge, but this one ticks the boxes for us. The fridge itself is deep, with good LED lighting, adjustable shelves, and big door shelves. The doors can be set up to open from either side, (hinge on the right as delivered) and is a relatively easy job to swap to the opposite side for a person with good handyman skills.

So efficient and quiet!
Before this refrigerator, we had a 20-year-old Westinghouse. It used a lot more energy than this and was a lot noisier. This is much quieter, like so much, and uses a considerable amount less energy. It has a nice clean design and the de-odorising filter in it doesn't make it stink. Well worth the price I paid.

I was very particular about having a single door fridge. I have seen other single door fridges and can see the difference. Found out to be effective and efficient while using it. Recommended for Single door.
Purchased in December 2018 at The Good Guys.
Not very happy
The temperature and the door open and closing is fine it's that after I brought the fridge and used it for a month it then went into storage as I moved in with my partner when I pulled it out to use it again not even 6 months later the inside at the back was all cracked and wrecked nothing was up against it, it wasn't in the heat or anything so needless to say I wasn't happy.
Purchased the fridge just under 2 years ago. For a medium fridge it has plenty of room. It's very quiet wouldn't even know it is on and the freezer height is perfect for a tall person. Very easy to clean inside and out. The stainless steel doesn't streak like most on the market. Very happy indeed!
I love my new fridge
I absolutely love my new fridge I purchased in January 2018. It has so much space inside the fridge and the freezer. It only takes few minutes to freeze the food in the freezer. It was one of the wise decisions we made!! I highly recommend this fridge to anyone!
Best fridge I've ever owned
This is hands down the best fridge I've owned in my adult life. Not only is it the perfect size for small families but the ability to turn off the freezer on vacation is actually genius and I highly recommend for active families. The shelving is also wide which is super helpful when storing food for meal prep or even just christmas!
A very good purchase we have been really happy with our fridge , very easy to clean inside and out . It is a very quiet fridge and I love that it is so easy to change the temperature of the fridge and only have the fridge section running and not the freezer if needed . The size is perfect as well .
Keeps cool but a tad noisy.
It is a two compartment fridge with a total capacity of 625 litres. I like the fridge as it is deeper than most other brands which means you can store longer objects or Pyrex dishes taking advantage of the depth. Space is not wasted here as the size of the freezer allows me to use freezer boxes and stack them up as again, the space in between the shelves are well spaced. There's plenty of shelves on the door and they are also deep which is good as I can store bottles without fear of them falling out when the kids yank hard to open the door. ...I have had it for over 5 months now can attest to it keeping to temperature and the crisp compartment works well. Food keeps well in there. What prevents me giving it five stars is the fact that the compressor is extremely noisy when compared to an older LG fridge I got side by side with it. Overall, this is a value for money product and I am happy with it.
Questions & Answers
My one is having trouble getting fridge cold. It kept getting warmer and warmer but the freezer is super coldest. Have both fridge and freezer on coldest at the moment. Any ideas?
Where can replacement door shelves be gotten from? Anytime I remove to clean them they crack on the holders?
What setting should the fridge and freezer be on please, coolest for both?
In my experience, no. I use middle for freezer, one left of mid for fridge and have found the temps to be very good, under -18 C in the freezer, and under 3C in the fridge. There’s no need to go colder than that. (It’s always a good idea to have a thermometer though to check your own fridge.)
I use middle for freezer but find I need to use more for fridge. I'm in QLD. The fridge doesn't get opened that often but we still get condensation. I'll get a thermometer.
Hi I have just purchased this fridge it’s great but my fridge doesn’t seem to be getting cold all I have is the blue bars how do the temps go
