Stay far far away from Samsung kitchen appliances. All mine have failed in some form.

I agree. We had a new Samsung microwave that died within 2 years and the ice maker in our Samsung fridge has broken multiple times. We replaced the microwave with a KitchenAid and will do the same when the fridge gives up the ghost.

Was actually looking at this fridge today. Sams Club also has it, $1169 for stainless, and $1279 for black stainless.

Home Depot has them for $1198 and $1298.
Lowe's has them for $1199 and $1299.

FWIW, I know some folks bag on Samsung reliability, but Consumer Reports gives them a "good" predicted reliability rating for all their french door refrigerators, which is the best rating they gave among all the manufacturers.

OP: You should just say 2-year manufacturer's warranty. There is no extra year of "Costco warranty".

These were $950-$1000 after black Friday up until Christmas after Christmas. At this price, the rf261 should be the one you're looking for. Even the rf263 was $1249-$1350 earlier this year.

Local Lowes appliance manager said to avoid the Samsung fridges due to reliability and difficulty for warranty claims. I can't speak to it personally, just an opinion from a reliable (to me) source.

My Samsung gas range has been really good to me though, especially for the price. They being said, I prefer the other Korean appliance manufacturer.

What's the difference with the rf261?

I don't own a Samsung fridge but my 2 friends that do tell me to stay as far as possible from them. They've had many issues with the freezer, defroster, and motor.

Almost $1300 for something that'll last maybe 3 years doesn't seem that slick to me.

We have the internal water dispenser model stay away broke down right before the one year mark, two years later it's currently leaking water all over the floor due to clogged drain (ice build up), I'll never again buy a Samsung appliance, my 15 year old Maytag fridge is still kicking, with no issue in my garage
