[KBIS 2008 Review]

The RFG295AA comes in Stainless Platinum, Black and White, while RFG297AA is offered in Stainless Steel, Black and White.

The end result is the clean, modern design that blends seamlessly with any kitchen decor, and the wide open interior allows consumers to easily find products inside. This Samsung refrigerator is equipped with blue LED control display and built-in automatic ice maker with the external dispenser for a quick and easy access to filtered water and cubed or crushed ice at your fingertips.
