  The Samsung RS265TDWP, RS263TDWP and RS267TDWP are large and spacious side-by-side refrigerators that should store enough groceries for an average family. They all include an in-door dispenser with filtered water and crushed or cubed ice; soft LED lighting in both compartments; and two compressors for separate cooling on each side (frozen and fresh). They are all the same exterior size and capacity, and have relatively minor interior differences between them. For example, the RS267TDWP comes with a built-in wine rack and humidity controls on the crisper drawers, features the others don't have.

What People Are Saying:

The Samsung RS265TDWP is on the 2012 Best Buy list (the highest ranking) at Consumer Reports, which rated it excellent for noise; very good for temperature performance, energy efficiency and ease of use; and with poor crisper performance. Consumer Reports expects the RS263TDWP and RS267TDWP to perform about the same as the RS265TDWP. At Best Buy, where the RS265TDWP is listed as a top seller, about 80 user reviews of the stainless steel model are primarily positive, with more than 70% recommending this refrigerator. Most reviewers gave it high marks and reported it to be quiet, spacious, reliable and attractive, although a few thought it was noisy and several had problems with the through-the-door ice maker, which can be a repair-prone feature on side-by-side refrigerators.
