Samsung Domestic products are most definitely not high end. I bought an earlier model and it broke down 1 month outside of the warranty, despite being a known fault and subject to a technical update, Samsung refused to repair. Unknown to me Samsung had been replacing the entire back panel of the fridge, and fitting modified parts under warranty to devices as they were failing.
Ironically given Samsung's reputation for phones overheating, the fault with their fridge freezers has been that they get too cold due to faulty thermostat & location and incorrect default defrost cut out temperatures (possible because they are not calibrated for temperature variations experienced in the european market), resulting in ice build up across the inside of the back panel which eventually seizes the circulation fans, causing the temperature to rise in the fridge to rise which also causes the freezer to stop working. Mine does this every six months or so, despite having a retro kit to fix it which involves relocating the thermometer sensor. I have to remove the entire back panel and defrost it with a hair dryer, and then refit it with a new thermostat on a regular basis. Google "samsung fridge freezer problems" and you will see that it affected the rsh1 and rs21 so this is not limited to one product.

I would never recommend a Samsung domestic product as they clearly don't properly test them before releasing to the market, as the fault is consistently reported, so much so that quite a few repairers appear to be providing repair kits.

For your own sanity (I have become somewhat obsessive at checking the temperature of the fridge as I cannot trust it, and am always delighted when I return from holiday to find it still working) I would avoid at all costs, as in this case whilst it may have showroom appeal beauty really is only skin deep, the Ford Edsel of fridge freezers.
(To put into context I bought a cheap Beko fridge freezer to live in my garage at a fraction of the cost and that performs flawlessly it just doesn't look as flashy).

It is however very cheap for an American style Fridge Freezer !

Bought a similar size a while back and all packaging and a plastic panel needed removing just to get it through the door.

Though if coming in via a standard external door, not patio doors or the like, then the door may need to be removed from the fridge/freezer if this is the standard size American fridge, though don't let that phase you, generally only 1 screw for top cover and 3 bolts per door to take off, then door slips up off the bottom hinge. I would enquire the delivery team are geared up to deliver such items, recent purchase of one of these from Tesco, ArrowXL used for delivery were a complete mare 5 attempts to deliver and the driver only dropped on last attempt as I played the kids don't have any dinners as no working fridge card.

Thanks OP, My wife broke our freezer draw the other day and denied all knowledge of it so this deal has just come at the right time :D

(I let her off the hook as our current fridge/freezer is 10 years old)

The delivery guys unpacked and put my freezer in the kitchen for me when I bought from Curry's. Would assume this is standard practice with any retailer/delivery service?

HEAT from me, just bought my first American Fridge Freezer a few months ago (Kenwood - which has been great) and at this price would have bought this one if was available at this price at the time.

They may be far from perfect, but Samsung is a high end brand and many will surely prefer a Samsung option to that of many other brands. I'd personally rather have a Samsung product go wrong than say an Indesit product, but that's just me.

Google Samsung fridge design faults. The plastic inside the fridge was cracking on mine. It's clearly a design fault which when I googled, other people had the same issue, some had theirs fixed but had mine just over 5 years, and couldnt quote it wasn't fit for purpose as that's within 5 years which most people under that had it fixed. So they quoted me £130+ to have it fixed. I said no thanks, would rather put it to good brand.

Spent loads of money on it and looks brand new, but when you open it and look on the white plastic, it's falling apart.

Don't touch samsung fridge freezers, bought regular model and it broke down just 1 month after warranty. Design fault, keeps icing up, and temperature is too high for freezer. I'm sure it just a blocked drain hole, but there seems to be no way to clear it unlike other fridge freezers. Have tried 3 times, having to rip pieces out to try and access the drain area.

Will never buy a samsung again

Our Samsung fridge freezer has from new had a freezer unit that constantly ices up at the bottom despite being frost free. Normally I would think a dodgy seal but it all looks good. Will check out the thread links for fixes. We have never had any luck with Samsung products (note,ace 2, and the fridge freezer). I personally think it is a major problem in their company.

You might need to add 'installation' if you're not willing to cross your fingers that the delivery guys are friendly.

I had an American fridge from AO delivered before Xmas and the guys said that free delivery was supposed to be to the doorstep only. If you want it inside that was 'installation'. These fridges are about 100kg so unless you're Geoff Capes you'll need a hand. I managed to bribe the delivery guys with coffee and biscuits.

Also measure your doors carefully, packing adds about another 15cm to the width making it much bigger than most doors. They are very big appliances and you might need to give the guys a waver to bring it inside without the protective packaging.
