Counterdepth Refrigerator: Frigidaire Gallery or Samsung?
I'm trying to decide between the only two counter-depth refrigerators that are within budget:
Frigidaire Gallery 22.6 cu.ft. side-by-side FGHC2331PF
Samsung 18 cu.ft. French door RF197ACRS.
Both are around $1200-1300. I've already ordered the Frigidaire from Sears, but I'm thinking of changing my order to the Samsung because it's 3 inches narrower than the 36" Frigidaire. I think it would look better in my small kitchen. I also think that having a smaller fridge will encourage me to keep it tidier with fewer forgotten items rotting in the back. And I also like how the Samsung does not have a water/ice dispenser on the door.
The problem is that I've never owned any Korean appliances before. I've read a lot of horror stories online about Samsung and LG refrigerators requiring frequent repair. Negative reviews for the Frigidaire seem to be mostly about the noise and the water/ice dispenser.
Have any of you had any experience with either of these refrigerators?
