Samsung or Fisher Paykel?

Frances Genovese | Jan 23, 201012:30 PM     21

Oh please somebody out there help me with this Hobson's choice. I need a small, bottom freezer, counter depth refrigerator that must be carted up 3 flights of ancient narrow stairs in NYC. The two best and only choices seem to be: Samsung RF197ABWP or Fisher-Paykel
E522BRX. Size and price are okay, but there is so much bad news about them online and so hard to evaluate this! My trusty salesperson says Samsung is "too new, from China (what isn't?) and a piece of crap." He also says Fisher-Paykel has a bad service record. There are issues with compressors going, no service and on and on.

Can anyone help with this particular slim choice of options. I would be most grateful
