Samsung RSG257AARS 24.5 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Counter Depth Refrigerator Review$2,399.00
The Samsung RSG257AARS features a brushed stainless steel facade with a water/ice dispenser in its left door.
While it looks nice, we found the Samsung RSG257AARS tends to pick up fingerprints pretty easily and the fridge's glossy surface makes sure they're noticeable. If obvious fingerprint smudges get on your nerves, you might want to steer clear of stainless steel.
The fridge's handles have squared tops and are round for easy gripping.
The handle meets the fridge at a gradual slope, with rounded edges.
The water dispenser is located on the left door.
The controls let you pick the between crushed and cubed ice.
The water is dispensed through a small white tube; the ice comes down from a chute.
The inside of the Samsung RSG257AARS is separated into two halves: the left is the freezer and the right is the refrigerator.
The top half of the refrigerator has three shelves and a wavy wire shelf that's ideal for holding bottles. All of the shelves can be removed, but there's not a whole lot of additional options for placement.
The bottom half of the refrigerator features three drawers: two vegetable and one fresh drawer.
The right door has a lot of storage options: most of the shelves can accommodate a two gallon jug of milk.
The top half of the freezer features three shelves that have a lot of room to move around. If you need another couple inches to fit something in, you'll be able to shift your shelves without wasting too much space.
The bottom part of the freezer has two drawers.
The left door contains three shelves below the ice maker. These shelves can tilt outwards slightly, but can't be repositioned.
The ice maker takes up the majority of the freezer door and can be removed. Below it are its instructions, which is handy should you need some quick help.
The back of the fridge is pretty featureless. It features a water hookup that drops from the top left corner and a power plug that extends from the lower right. The included water connection cable is fairly long, so it should reach most water outlets. Adapters to plumb the water line into the refrigerator are included.
The sides of the fridge don't have any interesting features.
