Good fridge , but....
I have had fridge about 18 months when I noticed the freezer seal has split! It became really obvious after wiping the seal down. Also drawer in freezer falls off rails when opened to access back of drawer.

Great fridge but design flaw with freezer draw
Fridge is great, good price etc... but there is an obvious design flaw with the freezer draw (yes, Google it). When you pull it out enough to actually get things out of it it will fall off it’s railing and you have to physically lift it back on to put it back in. If you don’t mind doing this, it’s a pretty good fridge.
I bought this fridge about a month, and am not regretting it! This fridge is everything i was looking for, space, energy efficient, and most of all COLD! This has been the best whitegoods purchase i have ever made! If you are Looking for a nice sized sophisticated fridge - then this is the one for you! Not only these, the design of the shape is also unparalleled, and it is particularly convenient to use, its separation of each compartment is particularly good, the temperature is also maintained Very reliable, overall good!

Can't fault it
Just ticked over two years with this fridge. Open plan layout of our home means the fridge is only 3 metres from where we sit to watch TV, and we never hear it. Extremely quiet (our 1st priority), very well thought out interior and like the wine rack built in. Free delivery from Appliances Online was a bonus.
Have had this fridge for over 4 months controls temperature very well.Lighting is excellent LEDs at front either side of fridge are very bright There is an shelf that folds in half so that you can store taller items at the front of the fridge. The shelfs in the door of the fridge are a reasonable size. It is a very quite fridge and seems to be very good quality .Like the freezer at the bottom of this fridge it is a decent size draws are very good as well.The rack for putting bottles in horizontally is a great space saver . No alarms for when doors are left open . Easy to adjust temperature as when you open it controls and led indications are at top of fridge behind top door seal.
A good fridge
I like this fridge. It replaced an ancient rattling ancient unit, so maybe anything would have seemed good by comparison, but food is fresher for longer, noise and power consumption much lower and obviously looks much better.
The full length handles are convenient, the vege crisper tray goes right across the fridge so can handle long veges.
The only slight downsides are the freezer drawers are hard to pull all the way out. The temperatures seemed to go off at one stage but just restarted the fridge to reset whatever computer it has inside and its worked fine since.
Excellent features with great Energy Rating

poor space arrangement
The biggest complaint comes from the unadjustable shelve height. Even though it's a bigger capacity fridge than our old Whirlpool, it holds much less food due to its poor shelf design. Another minus point is that the shelves don't slide out like our old Whirlpool. The finish looks cheap too.
I have seen similar complaints from other reviewers about the rigid shelf height makes the fridge very user unfriendly. What a shame. It would have been a great fridge if only the shelves and the door pockets could be adjusted.
LOVE it !!
I love my fridge. It is quiet and spacious. We had 2 fridges before to fit all our stuff but this one fits everything easily without having stuff crammed behind each other so you don't know what you have. The half shelf is brilliant and love the lighting. Vegies seem to last a lot longer. We don't use the icecube tray so I pulled it out and now use that little shelf for my tiny frozen containers of lime and lemon juice. Unfortunately the freezer isn't quite large enough for us as we buy meat in bulk and also make our own cat food so have an additional small upright freezer but for most families I would expect it would be sufficient.
Love this fridge
Always works perfectly , never had a problem. Never smells inside. Keeps the temperature at the right level. Looks stylish also and is a good size to fit what I need in the freezer and lots of space to put drinks in. Love the drawers that pull out , I store my veges in them
I’ve had this fridge about a year. I like the design, it’s easy to clean and frozen section drawers make for easy access to goods.
The temperature stays even and it’s best feature is how quietly it runs.
Anyone living in an apartment should consider quiet appliances as there is no escaping them once they’re turned on.
Really Happy With The Fridge
We are more than a little stoked with this fridge. It such a relief to finally update and this model was a very good choice, I think. It slotted straight in to our alcove so the size was a top guesimkation on my part but the best thing is the sweet sound of silence - it runs quieter than a Russian nuclear submarine compared to our old one. Love the bottom mount freezer - it brings all the food up to where it should be and the interioris beautiful. great fridge!
Love The Bottom Mount Design
This is the first fridge we have had with the freezer on the bottom - what a good and also obvious idea! It makes all the food up at eye level. It is clean and beautiful compared to the ancient Kelvinator it replaced. Its quiet too and the best bit is the efficiency is extremely high so I save electricity
Perfect for small fridge spaces
This is the fridge wich will fit in small fridge spaces. It’s very specious fridge with lot of space for frozen food and vegetables. The only issue I feel is the internal rack plates are delicate. You will have to be careful while adjusting space. But other than that it’s a good fridge
I love the Samsung brand and this refrigerator is a stand out.Very nice family size refrigerator. Spacious and love the different size compartments.bottom spacious freezer is a good option. Sufficient shelving space and good size vegetable compartment.i love this refrigerator and would defenetely recommend for a family looking for an average refrigerator.
Really Nicely Made Fridge
This fridge has got a really great interior. Its well thought out and the shelves are good. Its very easy to clean. If you have any spills they just wipe down. It looks good on the outside too and makes almost no noise running. I literally can't ever hear it. It is very energy efficient and keeps and even temperature throughout. If you are looking at fridges this is a very good choice.

Trying a Samsung bottom mount fridge - impressed so far
Model: Samsung SRL457MW (458 L, Bottom mount, i.e. upside-down)
Appliances Online $865 (delivered, installed, old removed)
Our old F&P fridge died after (alarm) beeping on & off for a few days….Used Product Review recommendations from 2017 to help select new fridge. This fridge was one of the two 2017 winners. Originally ordered Samsung & organised delivery for a future (convenient) date, but after a sudden death of the old fridge and a call to AOL at 7pm, the new Samsung was delivered the next day.
The biggest (fabu...lous) difference is the power consumption. The new inverter technology uses 330 kWh as opposed to 680kWh of the old one. It also has led lights inside which make it easy to see (although the manual says these must be replaced by a technician if needed – so one plus, one minus) Bottom mount (upside down) design works best for us as we don’t use the freezer as much, and it doesn’t knock out our dogs when we open the fridge door.

Purchased second hand. Very quiet and great build quality.
I purchased this second hand 6 months old. It has been a brilliant fridge. Great build quality and is quiet. Glass shelves are great. It has a very functional layout. Alarm is great at detecting if you've accidentally left the door open. It's been a great buy. Temperature adjustment is easy and accurate with digital thermostat. The only thing that has failed is one of the "pixels" of the freezer LCD temperature display has died, but it's not a big deal because it always reads 1 or 0, so is easy to see still.
Great value in a stylish fridge
After much searching, this unit replaced our aging entry-level Samsung that had just become too small for our family (and my beer brewing). We decided to stick with Samsung after having nothing but great performance out of our smaller starter fridge. We shopped around and reading reviews on this, it was shortlisted. We wanted a bottom freezer compartment as we use that much less and it's easier to keep the kids out of the top section if it's off the ground. Size-wise this was by far the best compromise for external size vs. internal space. We g...ot it delivered and set up and so far it's been great. It's whisper quiet too, which we were absolutely wanting. Nothing worse than a loud compressor kicking in during the night. This is a great fridge for the price, you won't go wrong with a Samsung.
Great fridge, freezer ok
Just purchased this fridge a few weeks ago, went with white as couldn’t justify the additional cost for stainless just for the aesthetic (esp as I’m moving frequently and the stainless always looks worse with the inevitable scratches and dints). It looks great. Plenty of room. My favourite is the shelf that folds in half.
Downsides: didn’t notice there’s actually no meat/cheese compartment. Worst downside is that the bottom drawer in the freezer doesn’t open all the way out, only half way, making it a hassle to move things in and out and to see what’s at the back (esp those things that come in boxes from the supermarket).

Questions & Answers
Samsung SRL457MW 458L Bottom Mount Fridge freezer and fridge not cooling and the fridge and freezer numbers keep flashing only about 1 year old any ideas?
Does anyone else hear excessive fan noise from this model? It almost sounds like the dishwasher is in when its cycling. I'm trying to decide if this is normal or if I'm being sensitive to noise.
We’d happy to help with your concerns about your dishwasher. Would it be possible to send us a video via our Facebook page?
