Samsung RFG298AABP Review

Samsung RFG298AABPThe Samsung RFG298AABP refrigerator is a French door model with a very roomy 29 cubic ft of space. The all-black exterior is very classy and could match just about any kitchen. In this review of the Samsung RFG298AABP fridge, I’ll go over this model’s strengths and weaknesses, then decide if it’s worth buying. Currently, this unit is selling for around $2,400 – which is actually pretty reasonable for a model with this much space. Here’s a quick rundown of the features found on this model: external water and ice dispenser, twin cooling plus system, 2 minute door alarm, surround air flow, power freeze and cool options, Cool Select pantry, LED lighting, 5 tempered glass shelves, dairy and egg compartments, humidity-controlled crispers, wine rack, gallon door bins, EZ-open freezer door, additional filtered ice maker in freezer, and this refrigerator is also Energy Star qualified. As you can see, they added a number of high-end features to give this model a luxury feel.

Alright, onto the negative aspects of the Samsung RFG298AABP refrigerator. Probably the biggest complaint from users is about the ice maker. Some say it doesn’t produce enough ice, and others say it is very loud. A few users actually had the whole thing go out on them, and had to get it replaced. I know that ice maker problems are probably the number one complaint with any brand you buy, but it’s just too bad that this model had to have these problems as well. Another thing that can get annoying is that the water dispenser tends to drip some after using it. If you hold your cup there for long enough afterward, it shouldn’t be an issue. Other than these two problems, there really isn’t a lot to complain about with the Samsung RFG298AABP – it’s a good refrigerator, overall. I’m still giving this unit a 4.3 / 5 star rating, even though you may have to deal with a couple ice maker problems. If you’re like most people, the positive assets will definitely outweigh the negative with this model.


Samsung RFG298AAWP Review

Samsung RFG298AAWPThe Samsung RFG298AAWP refrigerator is a very spacious French door model, with an eggshell white exterior and 29 cubic ft of space. In this review of the Samsung RFG298AAWP fridge, I’ll go over this model’s strengths and weaknesses, then decide if it’s worth the near $2,200 price tag. First off, you’re not going to find a lot of models with this amount of space selling for this cheap – so that’s a good start. Here’s a quick rundown of the features you’ll get with this unit: a deluxe exterior water and ice dispenser, door alarm, twin plus cooling system, surround air flow, two separate ice makers, an EZ-open freezer drawer, gallon door bins, 5 spill proof and tempered glass shelves, water filter, large 2-divider freezer bins, Cool Select pantry, humidity-controlled crispers, dairy compartment, luxury lighting, and it’s also Energy Star qualified. As you can tell, there are a number of extra features on this refrigerator. Another thing I like about this model is that it seems to be built very well.

OK, onto the negative aspects of the Samsung RFG298AAWP refrigerator. There are a couple complaints I’ve seen about the ice maker leaking or spitting ice. I think this may be a small problem, but you can always remedy this problem by holding your cup closer up to the dispenser. Also, the ice maker tends to be a little noisy at times. Even though this model is pricey, I can’t complain too much about it, because most models of this size are even more expensive. Other than those few minor issues with the Samsung RFG298AAWP, I can’t see any reason not to recommend this refrigerator. If you can get it on sale, this model would be a spectacular deal. Overall, I’m giving it a 4.3 / 5 star rating.


Samsung RF263AEBP Review

Samsung RF263AEBPThe Samsung RF263AEBP refrigerator is a French door model with 25.9 cubic ft of space. This is one of the cheapest models this manufacturer makes – currently around $1,350. In this review of the Samsung RF263AEBP fridge, I’ll go over this model’s strengths and weaknesses – then we can decide if it’s a worthwhile investment. As far as looks go it’s nothing too special, although I like the finish on the exterior and the all-black color. Here’s a quick rundown of the features you’ll find on this unit: spill-proof and tempered glass shelves, an easy open freezer drawer, self closing doors with tight seals to keep the cold air in, humidity controlled crispers, gallon door bins, egg and dairy compartments, surround air flow, Energy Star compliant, factory installed ice maker, and a door alarm. For the price, this is actually a pretty good set of features on this refrigerator. The inside seems spacious and pretty well organized.

OK, onto the negative aspects of the Samsung RF263AEBP refrigerator. First off, I always like to have an exterior water and ice dispenser – which this one does not have. Although, I am glad it at least has an internal ice maker. Also the shelves on the doors are not clear. This is more of a minor inconvenience, but it can make it harder to find stuff. A few users have had problems with the ice maker going out as well. Overall, I think the Samsung RF263AEBP is a nice refrigerator. It has a few issues, but it’s still a decent buy. I’m giving it a 4.2 / 5 star rating.


Samsung RFG298AAPN Review

Samsung RFG298AAPNThe Samsung RFG298AAPN refrigerator is a beautiful French door model, with 29 cubic ft of space. I know that looks aren’t everything though – so in this review of the Samsung RFG298AAPN fridge, I’ll go over the strengths and weaknesses of this model then decide if it’s worth the $2,600 price tag. The platinum colored exterior is really nice, and it’s a little more unusual than the more common stainless steel color. Here’s a rundown of the features you’ll find on this model: door alarm, surround air flow system, Energy Star qualified, exterior water and ice maker, water filter, twin cooling system for more even temperatures, CoolSelect pantry with adjustable temperature, adjustable tempered glass shelves, gallon door bins, wine rack, LED lighting, humidity controlled crispers, EZ-Open freezer handle, and an additional ice maker in the freezer. Wow, they absolutely decked this refrigerator out. Besides the features mentioned above, it includes all the normal basic features as well. When you open up the doors, you can see just how big this 29 cubic ft model really is.

OK, onto the negative aspects of the Samsung RFG298AAPN refrigerator. A couple users had problems with the ice maker. For one thing, the crushed ice feature is a little flaky sometimes. Also, when the ice drops in the bucket, it can be a little loud. Another thing is that this model tends to put out some heat, which could make a small kitchen warm up a bit. You’ll only really notice it if you have a smaller enclosed kitchen area. The only other thing that could be considered a negative is the $2,600 price tag. But, this isn’t really a surprise. Overall, I don’t have much at all to complain about with the Samsung RFG298AAPN. It really is a spectacular refrigerator. I’m giving it a 4.5 / 5 star rating.


Samsung RSG257AARS Review

Samsung RSG257AARSThe Samsung RSG257AARS refrigerator is a beautiful side by side model with 24.1 cubic ft of space. It has a brushed stainless steel design, which is very modern looking. In this review of the Samsung RSG257AARS fridge, I’ll go over this model’s best and worst assets. Although this model usually has a $2,100 price tag, you can find some pretty good deals and at times find it as low as $1,600 – which is the current price at Lowes. At that price, it’s a bargain. Now I’ll go over the best features found on this model: twin cooling plus, wine rack, Energy Star qualified, LED tower lighting with 20 lights, external water and ice dispensers, power freeze, multi-airflow technology, tempered and spill-proof glass shelves, gallon door bins, and also six temperature sensors. This is a pretty decent feature set on this refrigerator, it definitely covers all the basics and them some. As I mentioned earlier, it also has a beautiful exterior which I would count as a big asset. The contoured door handles, stainless steel and hidden hinges give it a very sleek modern look.

Now, onto the negative aspects of the Samsung RSG257AARS refrigerator. First off, the drawers only open about halfway. This can get pretty annoying if you’re trying to dig in the back. Also, the ice maker can be a little slow at dispensing ice at times, even with the quick freeze feature. A couple users have had problems with it not cooling properly, but I think it’s more of a fluke than anything. Another thing is that the door handles don’t seem very sturdy, they tend to come loose after using them a while. Overall, I really like the Samsung RSG257AARS. I’m giving this model a 4 / 5 star rating.


Samsung RFG298AARS Review

Samsung RFG298AARSOur Samsung RFG298AARS review: There really are not a lot of refrigerators out there that have the storage space, style and presence that the Samsung RFG298AARS model has. At 29 cubic ft, it’s definitely in the top bracket as far as space goes. The stainless steel exterior, contoured doors, and hidden hinges give it a sleek modern look. A few more features you’ll find on this model are: twin cooling system, Energy Star qualified, external filtered water and ice dispensers, CoolSelect pantry door, external digial display and control, and power freeze and cool. It also has 5 door bins and 5 adjustable glass shelves.

Next, I’ll go over any potential downsides to the Samsung RFG298AARS refrigerator. Unfortunately, even with good looks and features, quite a number of buyers have had this model break down on them in under a year. A few even complained that Samsung didn’t respond to their problems very quickly. I’m not saying this will happen to you, but it’s just something to be aware of. The good news is that other than the fridge breaking down for a couple buyers, the Samsung RFG298AARS refrigerator only has a couple very minor problems. Overall, I’m only giving it a 3.8 / 5 star rating.

Samsung RS263TDPN Review

Samsung RS263TDPNThe Samsung RS263TDPN refrigerator is a 26 cubic ft side-by-side model. In this review of the Samsung RS263TDPN I’ll go over some of the positives and negatives about this fridge. As far as looks go, this model is a beauty. It’s platinum exterior is sleek and modern looking. It’s other prominent features include: multi-air flow technology, twin cooling system, filtered water and ice dispensers, spill-proof tempered glass shelves, door alarm, gallon door bins, Energy Star qualified, and bright LED lighting. Samsung is one manufacturer which has some really great LED lighting – inside, as well on the exterior dispensers.

The Samsung RS263TDPN refrigerator is actually priced fairly reasonably (depending on where you buy, it’s currently priced around $1,500). Unfortunately, the side-by-side fridges are a little less dependable than some other styles – this particular model seems a little more stable though. The ice maker is a little loud, which is a pretty common problem. Quite honestly, there’s not a lot to complain about with the Samsung RS263TDPN. For the price, it’s a good-sized refrigerator with some nice features. Overall, I would give it a 4/5 star rating.


Samsung RF4287HARS Review

Samsung RF4287HARSOur short Samsung RF4287HARS review: With 28 cubic ft of space, the Samsung RF4287HARS refrigerator is definitely one of the bigger french door models on the market. The stainless steel exterior really makes this fridge beautiful, and the FlexZone drawer is a very nice touch. A couple other features I really like about this model are: a super bright LED lighting system, Surround Air Flow for even cooling, thru-the-door water and ice dispensers, spill-proof tempered glass shelves, a nice external digital display and controls, and the FlexZone drawer that I mentioned earlier. The drawer is neat, because it has 4 temperature zones which can be set to accommodate just about any special needs item.

So, what’s not to like about the Samsung RF4287HARS refrigerator? Well, there are a couple issues buyers seem to have with this fridge. The first is the ice maker, which some users find a little loud and also that it doesn’t make ice fast enough. Also, the stainless steel attracts fingerprints quite easily – but that’s to be expected. A couple reviews I read talked about the Samsung RF4287HARS making a humming sound. I think the other big issue with this refrigerator is the price tag, which is currently around $2,800. Mostly, that will just keep some people from buying it. I’m not saying, however, that this model isn’t worth the money. Even with these few issues, I’m giving it a 4.5/5 star rating. It’s a spectacular high-end model, with lots of useful features.


Samsung RFG293 Refrigerator Review

Samsung RFG293The Samsung RFG293 refrigerator is spacious and has a number of great features – but, is it worth $1,700? The Samsung RFG293 is a french door model with a huge 29 cubic ft of space. It’s available in black or stainless steel colors. The LED lighting is very bright, almost too bright if you’re coming out for a midnight snack. However, the LED lighting does emit less heat and conserve some energy – a good reason why this model is Energy Star rated. The twin cooling system is an innovative idea, which I really like. Basically it keeps the freezer air separate from the refrigerator air (the freezer air can be kept dryer).

For all of its good qualities, the Samsung RFG293 refrigerator is missing a pretty standard feature – a water dispenser. These days, you’ll almost always find a water dispenser on a “higher-end” french door model, but not this one. It does, however, have an ice maker in the freezer section. So, back to my original question – is this refrigerator worth the money? Well, I think it’s a pretty average model, with nothing too fancy on board. But because of the huge amount of space and twin cooling system, I think it would work well for larger families. I’m giving this model a 4/5 star rating.


Samsung RFG297AARS Refrigerator Review

Samsung RFG297AARS RefrigeratorMy short Samsung RFG297AARS refrigerator review: If you’re looking for a big refrigerator – this is it. At 28.5 cubic ft, the Samsung RFG297AARS’s interior seems massive. This is actually a good thing, because there are so many adjustable shelves and drawers to design the fridge how you want. The door shelves on the other hand are a little awkward, and even a little smaller than I’d like. The finish on the exterior is beautiful. Actually, I’ve read a lot of reviews on this model, and almost everyone agrees on how pretty this thing looks. I especially like the interior lighting; it’s very bright. Another feature I really like about the Samsung RFG297AARS refrigerator is the open door indicator – it actually lets you know when the door is accidentally left open. Lastly, it runs very quietly.

As I mentioned earlier, some of the door shelving is a bit smaller than I’d like. Also, the space underneath the ice maker is a bit awkward. A lot of users complain about the Samsung RFG297AARS refrigerator’s ice production. I haven’t really found this to be a huge problem, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it happens down the road. I don’t really have a lot more negative to say about the Samsung RFG297AARS. You can buy it now for around $2300. Overall, it’s a great refrigerator – I give it 4.5/5 stars.
