Received genuine article.
on 17 April 2013
Having read some of the bad reviews I initially dismissed this seller. However, I noticed that these bad reviews are now 3 years old. Many of the more recent reviews (Mar 2013) have shown more success in receiving the correct items, also I noticed that the item is fulfilled by amazon, so there was less risk.
I decided to give it a shot. I received (as far as I can tell) the genuine article. It's identical in size, shape, and labeling as the original filter that I received with my Samsung fridge. Installation was just as easy as the original and has the push fit clips.
I ran the filter for 5 mins as the instructions stated. The water started off a darker gray colour and had a few sediments in it (just as the original filter did), but after a few minutes the water cleared - it is now crystal clear water. I drank a glass of water from it and there was no discernible taste. I am satisfied that it does what it should do.
I am glad to have purchased this item as it is considerably cheaper than other resellers, and as far as I am concerned, it is the real deal.
