Split freezer

That split allows Samsung to make the right half into a "FlexZone" with its own distinct temperature presets. Though it defaults to freezer mode (0 degrees F), you can dial it up as high as 41 F if you need extra storage space for fresh groceries.

Freezer performance

At its lowest setting, the FlexZone's performance (red) is indistinguishable from the freezer itself (blue). Both offer near-perfect performance.

Wine rack

The FlexZone also comes with a metal wine rack. At its highest setting, the FlexZone makes a handy little beverage cooler.

Four settings

All four FlexZone settings were more or less accurate, but that compartment needed a lot of extra time to hit the coldest freezer setting.

Secret switch

...unless you press a hidden switch on the bottom of the door's recessed handle. Do so, and the front panel of the door will open, revealing the in-door shelves without actually opening the refrigerator.

The bottom two shelves will even slide out like drawers for easier access to what's inside.

Coldest setting

The fridge performed well at the coldest setting, too. For this test, we dialed the FlexZone up to its warmest setting of 41 degrees F. It did just fine without affecting the other compartments.
