it runs in cycles getting 'cheap stuff' from outside the US. We were critical back in the 50's of anything 'Made in Japan'. Remember the old Zippo cig lighters that were duplicated. It wasn't until the Honda motorcycle and other quality stuff started showing up that we switched to Mexico, then Korea got out of the making of brass things from ammunition casing, to making quality cheap stuff for us, then Malaysia, then Taiwan, then Sri Lanka(s), India, back to Mexico, and now cheapos from China.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
