The 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.
