The Samsung Model RSG257AARS
is a popular side by side/counter depth refrigerator which has
received high ratings overall. At around 2,070$ this is
not a cheap product, even though counter depth models are
generally more expensive than regular models.
money though, you do get all the bells and whistles, and of
course a refrigerator which fits flush with your counter.
The exterior finish is real stainless steel, not a look
alike. Storage capacity is 24.1 square cubic feet, which
is average for a counter depth model. Thru door ice and
water is there of course, and with a filtration unit which has a
replacement indicator light.
The shelves are spill proof
glass. You get exterior temperature controls, with six
internal sensors for careful monitoring. Samsung also
includes power freeze and power cool options, which allows you
set your fridge for fast cooling when the temperature gets
thrown off due to repeated door openings.
There is an
open door alarm, and the doors do have child locks, a hard to
find feature in lower priced models. On the door interiors
there is gallon storage to save space in the main compartment.
A humidity controlled crisper, wine rack, and theatre like
internal lighting complete the interior picture. So yes,
that's a lot of features, and a lot of fridge.
