About - Samsung RSG309AA[RS]

The Samsung RSG309AA[RS] is part of the refrigerator test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, side by side refrigerator models like the RSG309AA[RS] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Temperature performance:
This combines results of tests measuring the accuracy of initial temperature settings along with how well a model 1) kept optimum temperatures in the refrigerator and freezer at the same time; 2) kept temperatures even throughout each compartment; 3) kept temperatures constant despite changes in room temperatures; and 4) maintained set temperatures even with very high room temperatures.

Energy efficiency:
This reflects electricity consumption (based on our tests) per cubic foot of measured usable storage space. For example, two refrigerators with the same energy cost per year may have different energy efficiencies -- the unit with more storage space being more efficient.

Noise:
Noise level was measured when the compressor started up and during steady running. Subjective judgments by a panel of listeners supplemented our noise-meter readings.

Comment:
I replaced a 1959 GE fridge with the Samsung and really miss the swing-out shelving in the old GE as reaching items at the rear of the rather deep Samsung can be difficult. The Samsung occasionally makes a subtle rattling sound identical to a woodpecker - the woodpecker isn't overly obvious, just enough to get everyone in the kitchen looking out the windows.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
