Cannot be certain these are genuine Samsung parts. The retaining clips on the inlet/outlet are usually red and these have blue colour clips. Secondly the label is slightly different - normally there is a small flow direction logo at the top right of the label but it is not on these ones. Also the address at the bottom of the label is different to the one on the filter that came with my fridge freezer.

Finally the price may be too good to be true - everywhere else in the UK is between £25 and £30 for 1 unit.

Obviously I could be completely paranoid and wrong but not worth the risk in my view - who knows what is inside these if they are not genuine?

Apologies to the retailer if I'm wrong but it is back to Samsung shop or an official supplier for me!

Having said all that - they are straightforward to install and the water does flow through them at least!

A tip for fitting to all those who struggle - once you remove the retaining clips on the grey inlet/oulet pipes make sure you push down the grey section into the filter to remove or insert the water pipes. Once the water pipe is pushed in (as far as you can get it without forcing it), get your finger nail under the lip of the grey section and pull it out a few millimeters and then reinstall the small blue/red retaining clips - this locks in the water pipes.

When I fitted the first one (I've fitted these before, so have a good idea of what's needed) and turned the water on, mains pressure water sprayed out of the exit push fitting of the filter. Tried refitting and repeating several times, and tried both the old filter and the other new filter which worked fine, and didn't drench the surroundings.

It appears that I can only return these as a pair, and now that the other one is fitted I don't think I'll bother for the sake of a tenner.

I have noticed that these filters don't have the direction of flow on the label like the original one did (the one that came with the fridge), so handy to mark it somewhere for next time you replace it.

Easy to install just like other Samsung filters. Instructions are in the box. There is no "arrow" on the filter to indicate which way is up. I've seen this "problem" pop up in many of the questions.
The base of the filter, which is "in", water from the tap, has a different shape than the top, "out", water to the fridge. This is easy to spot in the instructions. Also, the way the label on the filter is placed should be another clue, the writing is up, so you can read it.
Flush about 3-4 liters of water through the filter after installation to clean any impurities, it will be fine after.
Good price for 2 pieces.

There was a few mentions in comments on amazon that these were not Samsung originals. I don't know why though as they are exactly the same as the one that was delivered with my fridge. What I will say is that they are a bit fiddly to fit, not difficult, and the instructions are pretty clear but maybe Samsung could have made it a bit easier. There is a small clip which has to be removed and replaced on the new filter so you have to be careful not to lose it. The filter on my fridge is placed on top and there is not much of the water line to work with so that also didn't help. Ovearll a good product and a good price.

Great buy you do get some black water through it when flushing through but it does say that on the instructions, the secret is to keep some of the 1/4" hose from the plumbing in kit so that you can connect this to the outlet of the filter and flush it through into a bucket before connecting to the fridge that way you dont contaminate the fridge water or ice maker.

This one's really good. easy to fix and set. the taste of water is good too.. However, you may want only 1 in 6 months, and therefore you will have to store the other one for that period.

The actual product is really good and nice instructions on the packing.

I found that pulling out the securing clips on the new filter wasn't that easy. I appreciate that they need to fit securely in order to secure the In and Out tubes, but they were still difficult to extract. Considering this is only a filter, I would say they are a little on the expensive side and I would be tempted to try an alternative brand next time to reduce cost.

No instruction leaflet included although packaging refers to it. States mount v as per flow arrow but no arrow in evidence. When connected it leaks. Perhaps flaky replica? Contains all samsung labelling.

Exact filter for my American Samsung Fridge freezer. Cheaper as a 2 pack and should last 6 months, so with both shouldn't need anymore until same time next year.

Poor quality as only one of the filters didn't leak. Further investigation identified the filters as most likely fake as they didn't have the same inkjet markings as the original Samsung item - buyers beware.
