The Samsung RF4287HA[RS] is part of the refrigerator
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, bottom freezer refrigerator
models like the RF4287HA[RS] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
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.
This reflects electricity consumption (based on our tests) per cubic foot of measured usable storage space. For example, two models with the same energy cost per year may have different energy efficiencies -- the unit with more storage space being more efficient.
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.
About This Brand
Samsung's new bottom-freezer French-door refrigerators will come with new easy-open door systems, foldaway shelves, LED lighting, and dual evaporators. It's expected to be debuting the largest French-door model in the U.S. market with its 29-cubic-foot refrigerator.
Claimed capacity (cu. ft.) Claimed capacity is the manufacturer's estimate of the volume, in cubic feet, of interior space.

Cabinet-depth model Cabinet-depth models usually measure 27 to 28 inches deep, not quite flush with the cabinets, but at least three inches shallower than many standard 36-inch-wide models. You can get models with stainless exteriors or panel kits.
French-door style French door models are bottom-freezer refrigerators whose upper compartments have two narrow doors that open similarly to the doors of a side-by-side refrigerator. These narrower doors use less space in front of the refrigerator when opened, and allow access to either or both sides of the full-width fresh-food compartment. Typically more expensive, French-door models are usually 36 inches wide, though some newer models are 33 inches wide.
Water dispenser It is normally located in the fresh food compartment.
Stainless/SS-look option Stainless steel is stylish but it shows fingerprints. Another option: a vinyl-covered metal finish that gives you a stainless-steel look but resists smudging.
Bought four appliances, now we remodel/re-arrange our kitchen to fit these beautiful additions. Hope they last! Retired a 29 year old dishwasher, 26 year old refrigerator, 2 year old microwave, and a 20 year old built in oven and cooktop. Thanks to consumer reports for the knowledge and buying power.

Freezing Occurs In Refrig
Lack Of Customer Service
Scratches In Stainless Do
French Doors Plus Drawer
Pros: I love the look and design. It was to be my center in my kitchen. Slick design, great look. Easy access to all areas. So much room for everything.<br /><br />Cons: I am terribly disappointed in their customer service. I found scratches in the doors that were only visible in direct sunlight (We didn't have direct sunlight for almost two weeks after delivery). When I called about the problem, I was told it was not their issue, but the delivery company's issue. The delivery company stated it was after 48 hours, so they would do nothing. Now I wait to see if I get any satisfaction from Samsung. It looks like when the stainless was milled there was something that scratched the surface in circles and squiggly lines. <br />An F- so far! <br />Also had frozen eggs and celery in the refrigerator door section...Now I wait for the repair company to come and look at the freezing problem on my BRAND NEW appliance. Samsung won't commit to take care of the scratches. <br /><br />I was so excited to get this appliance, only to be disappointed when I had to contact them about problems. Total frustration. I don't spend money foolishly, and I feel foolish having trusted this company to provide a quality product. Aesthetics are part of the package, and I received damaged goods. I will gladly write another review when all of my issues thus far are resolved.
