Comment:
My inquiry relates to your overall reviews of Samsung 3 door fridges. Most of them are above average to excellent. However, the posted user reviews see the polar opposite. My RF263Bxxxxx matches their sentiment: Quite fit for the junkyard. I am aware of some skewing, as people with a gripe are more likely to post than those who are happy with a product, but the discrepancy is perplexing. Providing your least-canned response would be most appreciated. Thank you in advance for your reply.

Comment:
The compressor always shift to upper and lower gears when running and very noisy and even noisier when turning off. We cannot tell the difference between the compressor running and the freight train passing by. Seriously?
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
