Purchasing a new refrigerator is always a little bit risky, as it is an investment that is expected to last your household quite a few years, and there are so many different things to consider and factor into your purchase. I am very satisfied with my purchase, the Samsung RSG257AARS 24 cu. ft. Counter Depth Side by Side Refrigerator.

This model has interior LED lights when you open the refrigerator instead of the hotter old bulbs that it's predecessor had.
When it comes to my refrigerators, I am somewhat compulsive about temperature control. I have two precision thermometers, one in the fridge and one in the freezer compartment. On the RS275ACRS, the temperatures were nowhere near what the external display was reporting them as. On this model, however, the refrigerator is usually within 0.2 deg F of the reported temperature (at coldest setting of 34F, thermometer reports 34.1 whereas the 275 would be all over the place, never lower than 37 or so). In the freezer, this model is rock solid at -10 F when the external display is -14 F. I consider this excellent, as most freezers can't get this low. The 275 was lucky to get to -7 F with the display at -14 F. And yes, I allowed plenty of calibration time and took multiple readings over weeks. So, in my testing anyway, they have definitely upgraded the innards since the 275.

I also love how quietly the refrigerator runs. In the past, I have dealt with rattly old fridges and I know how irritating this can be.

This model has the icemaker on the freezer door, not hogging the upper shelves of the freezer, which I love. However, this version is, obviously, slightly shallower than the previous model, but the markedly improved performance is well worth it to me.
