Samsung RS25J500DSR Review


The 24.5 cu. ft. Side by Side model ensures optimal storage capacity without being too large and unwieldy. It features two clear crispers that help keep fruit and vegetables organized and easy to see. The door is designed in such a way to provide ample storage and leave more shelf space in the interior of the refrigerator. There is a gallon door bin as well as a dairy bin, specifically designed for storing dairy products. 

In the freezer section, there are three freezer door bins for saving space on the shelves, as well as a compact ice maker that takes up less space. 


Samsung offers energy-efficient LED lighting in the interior of its refrigerators, as well as smart cooling systems that keep food fresher and prevent spoiling or freezer burn. The model also features external water and ice dispensers that provide cold filtered water and ice whenever needed. 

Additional features include six temperature sensors for maintaining ideal temperature levels throughout the refrigerator, as well as a door alarm to alert if the doors are left open. The interior has two humidity-controlled crisper drawers to keep produce fresh, as well as tempered glass spill-proof shelves for durability and easy cleaning. 

Finally, there is a digital LED Display located above the water and ice dispenser on the door, which displays temperature and other notifications regarding the model’s operation. 


Samsung is renowned for the design of its products and this refrigerator model is no exception. The model features a choice of finishes including white, stainless steel, and fingerprint-resistant black stainless, as well as contour doors with a smooth finish that offer increased functionality and aesthetic. 


There are several comments about the refrigerator breaking down often and needing repairs. Specifically, customers are complaining about the model’s ice maker breaking down, about the freezer needing frequent defrosts and about the refrigerator not cooling with groceries going bad as a result.
