The Samsung RF267AEWP is a 25.8-cubic-foot French-door refrigerator with a filtered through-the-door ice and water dispenser and adjustable spill-proof glass shelves. It's Energy Star-rated and a strong performer in professional tests, with particularly high scores for performance and noise. This model is available in white and black, in platinum for $100 more and in stainless steel for $200 more. Owners like its variety of storage options, stylish design and quietness, but there are some durability complaints about the ice maker.
