The Samsung RF4289 and RSG309 are two new state of the art refrigerator freezers hitting the market on 2011. Introduced at the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) these fridges are packed with the latest cutting edge technology.
Both of these units incorporate an eight inch LCD screen and built in Wi-Fi wireless internet connectivity. This technological revolution means that these Samsung refrigerators allow usage of a wide range of kitchen related apps from the convenience of the refrigerator door. Unfortunately these high-tech refrigerators do not come cheap.
These refrigerators are a major component of Samsung’s Nth-Screen “seamless connectivity” strategy, and the Samsung RF4289 has a suggested retail price of $3499 for its May 2011 ship date. Pricing and shipping info for the RSG309 have yet to be announced.
The LCD screen – integrated into the appliances directly over the ice and water dispenser – allows the consumer to easily search collections of recipes, check on the weather, and catch up on the day’s news headlines. Also available is the ability to check the families’ calendar, leave notes for the kids and the option of viewing a photo slide show.
With internet access from the fridge door, social networking fans will be able to get their fill of Twitter and Facebook without ever having to leave the kitchen. This is perhaps handy functionality if you like to blog about your cooking experiences.
Apart from these smart computing technology enhancements, these two new Samsung models are fully featured refrigerators. The Samsung RSG309 is a 30 cubic foot side-by-side fridge freezer, whilst the Samsung RF4289 is a 28 cubic foot French door model; both offer great functionality however.
Both of these large units utilize the Twin Cooling Plus System® designed to ensure perishables kept in these Samsung refrigerators stay fresher for longer. This system uses two separate evaporators and fan systems to cool the refrigerator and freezer separately. Keeping these systems separate ensures maximum control over humidity for longer lasting produce.
Samsung also introduced some other cutting edge high-end appliances at the 2011 CES. These include the new Flex Oven range and the high capacity WF520 Samsung front loading washer.
