I purchased a Samsung refrigerator last December. The freezer is a pull-out drawer on the bottom; the refrigerator is on top with french-doors. It is stainless. I did not opt for the door dispensing ice, water, etc. This is by far the most expensive refrigerator I have ever purchased, but so far, I am quite pleased with it.
There is a cold water dispenser (with a changeable filter) in the inside. The door shelves are quite deep and useful. The freezer is very accessible, with a large divided drawer on the bottom, and the ice maker and additional storage in top drawer that pulls out. I feel it holds more than the traditional side-by-side freezer/fridge.
– An alarm will chime if the door is left ajar.
– The freezer is easier to organize and actually see what is in there when compared to a standard refrigerator.
– The ice maker makes a lot of noise when it’s on and dumping ice cubes.
– The refrigerator part doesn’t seem to offer as much storage as a standard model.
