About - Samsung RF4287HA[RS]

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.


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 models 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:
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.

Comment:
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.
