In general, Samsung refrigerators with side-by-side compartments are cheaper than French door refrigerators with three or more doors. As size increases, the price of the refrigerator also increases. Most models have an ice dispenser, but it costs more to have a dispenser for filtered water. In addition, some more pricey models are able to dispense sparkling water. The Dual Door or Food ShowCase Door options, which provide the ability to look inside the refrigerator without leaking cold air, also cost more money. Metal cooling features add to the price and use stainless steel paneling to maintain a consistent temperature more effectively.

Lighting options within the refrigerator also have an impact on its cost. Most models are equipped with LED lighting, but high-efficiency LEDs cost more, and dual-tower LED illumination is the most expensive option. In French door refrigerators, the number of cooling systems has an effect on price, with the most expensive models being able to switch compartments from refrigerator to freezer modes. These most expensive models have higher cooling powers and use three evaporators to maintain food freshness.
