Yes, this is almost the top of the line model from Samsung ($3.8k msrp).
I tried a $1500 LG (LFXS27466S) and had big issues with the compressor within a few days so I've been on the hunt for a new fridge.

At this price, it isn't cheap but it's the lowest I've seen for a while (closest was about $2699 in the past 2 months).

This Costco deal gives you the following extras:
In home delivery, free haulaway and premium water hose with hookup.
4 years warranty with Costco visa (2 without).
Costco's awesome return policy (90 days no questions asked and they come to pick it up. I have first hand experience with the LG fridge).
2% cashback with Costco visa (~$50).
Don't forget the $25 off $250 Costco coupon you can pick up in store.

This fridge features huge 28cuft ft capacity
Show case (door in door)
Flex zone (1 of the 2 freezer compartments can be used as extra refrigation space)
Metal cooling
Premium led lighting and shelving (a few notches higher than the LG I bought).

The wife and I looked at all existing models at bb, HD, Lowes, and frys and only this one plus 3 other models are considered. This was our top pick because it is beautiful and has all the functions we want (the other nice one is a $3k+ Frigidaire which has much less space). The other 2 options are cheaper but acceptable options. One of them being the crappy LG we bought and returned (made in China btw).

I hope this helps others who are looking for a modern, full size fridge.

I saw the 30cu ft version in store. Not sure if it was exactly the same, but it looked very nice. How's Samsung's fridge reliability?

It is $2200 at home depot, and it will be the same price for black friday with 24 month financing. Maybe ok at costco for the extra warranty and cashback

Actually I goofed up. The model in deal is a higher model than the one I put in title. I just fixed it. The correct one in deal is RF28K9380SR, not the 9070. Difference is the door in door feature, which is abundantly useful (it also keeps cool air from escaping the fridge). The correct model at HD is $2499.

Don't know about Samsung reliability but LG's bad. I see alot of good reviews on Costco's site on this one and I get 4 year warranty plus 90day no hassle returns from Costco so I think it's good enough.

I checked all the American brands and they aren't great. One of them (maytag or whirlpool) simply rebadges LG. Only one that I really like is frigidaire and only the top end (3k+) models. Still, they are smaller than the Samsung.

What about GE? I hear it's a decent brand. What have you heard?

Got this one a few month ago at HomeDepot for $2200 after price matching. It's very nice, come with WIFI but I guess Samsung will never patch the damn thing for KRACK

Mine is 7+ years old, zero issues, best fridge I've ever owned.

One very minor complaint which may have been fixed in the newer models, the ice maker is pretty loud when it drops the ice into the storage tray.

If it lasts you 4 years it has a good chance of making it another 4 (i.e. when they break, it is usually early on, and then again about 8 or 10 years in when the mechanical limits start to factor in).

I'm shopping for a fridge like this now and can say that you really are looking for least worst and not the best one. Price doesn't seem to relate much to reliability for any freestanding fridge. If I'm wrong, please someone correct me, because I'm deep into this research and finding they all pretty well stink considering what you pay.

Samsung is currently the least bad brand I have found. If I don't find something else on black friday, I'll buy this one since the big warranty and costco return policy gives me a little more safety net than I would get anywhere else.

My ice maker broke about a few days after the one year warranty and seems like a recall issue since I know two others who have the same issue.

If you are worried about expensive appliances crapping the bed buy an Equipment Breakdown endorsement on your homeowners policy. Covers everything mechanical, electrical, or pressure and only costs maybe $15-$20/year. Yes, subject to a deductible. Just throwing it out there since not many are aware of this type of coverage in the insurance market.

I bought a 4 year extended warranty on mine and never used it so its always a crap shoot guessing when something might break.
