I had routinely replaced my filter with the Samsung official filter. This time I decided to save some money and buy this replacement. My official filter is the DA29-00003G and as promised this one fits exactly. Locks in place just like the Samsung one and with no leaks. I have no way of knowing if it filters as well as the Samsung version but the water tastes fresh and looks clear. I will buy this again.

We have an RF267AWEP Samsung refrigerator and replace the filter every 6 months. We used to re-order the original Smasung one for DA29-00003G (Samsung DA29-00003G Aqua-Pure Plus Refrigerator Water Filter, 1-Pack), however for some reason the last one that came would not fit in our fridge. We noticed other people complaining about it. We called Amazon, and the rep mentioned there may have been a mismatch between the model display and the one actually in the box(DA29-00003F). He then suggested this substitute which was considerably cheaper. Reluctantly we decided to give it a try.
The good: perfect fit, no leakage (as some people complained), no taste/odor present. It is worth mentioning however that our local water is safe and free from odors even without a filter, although it does have is a slight taste of Chlorine.
Customer service, although we did not actually needed it is exceptional - they follow up with an email with instructions even before it arrived (faster than expected).
The bad - although it looks exactly like the original one, and supposedly made by the same company, the certification is inferior, and the supporting documentation is much less convincing than the original one. the original is tested and certified by NSF International against both NSF/ANSI Standard 42 and 53 (aesthetics and health hazardous substances), whereas this substitute states it filters "aesthetic effects" only such as chlorine taste, with no mention to actual NSF standard approval (ANSI 42).
As I mentioned above, since our local water is in fact safe this filter is usable for us in spite of its inferior rating. However if you are not sure about your water, you should probably stick with the original.

1st I've ever replaced my water filter on Samsung Refrigerator. Received the package in 2 days using Prime (trial) came home from work took the old one out (follow turn arrows) placed the new one in (follow arrows) like a light bulb. Once that was complete, I ran the dispenser for about 2 1/2 gallons of water to purge (remove air in the line) the system the water was a cloudy grey initially then turned clear with the last gallon. Once the water was clear, I was finished.
Thanks for everything Waterfall 👍👍👍👍👍

Don't waste your money! Ended up buying the Samsung brand name filter. Water under this "imposter" filter tasted terribly, chemically awful!
Threw it away and ordered the brand name Samsung filter....back to good tasting water now.

I have an RS2578WW/XAA fridge, and Amazon's part selector came up with this filter.

It does not fit. I have attached pictures from Samsung's webpage titled
"RFG299AARS/XAA Replacement Filter Does Not Fit".

Notice the locking ring on Samsung has pointed tips.
This third party filter does not have those.

My old filter looks just like the proper kind from Samsung's webpage.
The filters I got from this order look like the incompatible kind.

I cannot mount them at all, and I'm not going to force the wrong one into place.
According to Samsung, it is possible that using the wrong filter can leave the housing stuck when removing the wrong filter.

In the past, Waterdrop brand was just like Samsung's, but that product was discontinued.
I'm trying the current Waterdrop product, and hope to have better luck there.

It fits like a glove into my Samsung fridge. It less heavy than the original one. So far is working good. I chanced it and bought two but now I know I made a good purchase. See the attached picture showing the "ridges" of the original Samsung filter and this one, they are EXACTLY the same, thus it fits perfectly.

I have been using the Aqua-Pure Plus DA29-00003G for 7 years and decided to try a different cheaper ones. For some reason I dismissed the bad reviews and thought it was not correct. Boy, was I wrong.
I've already followed the instruction and cycled 6-8 gallons of water. The outcome was:
- The water doesn't taste right.
- The water smells a little bit

I didn't realize that there is no return policy for this item and my 20$ was gone just like that.
So I just ended up dumping this to the trash bin and decided to always use the official Samsung ones from now on.

 I have always used water filters from the manufacturer (Samsung) vs. compatible filters from other manufacturers. Thought I'd save some money and try this one by Waterfall Filter Company, based in Las Vegas, NV and manufactured in China. I replaced the filter on December 6th, and followed all of the normal procedures (running 3-4 gallons of water through the filter before using, etc.). Seemed to be working great until today (December 13th) I noticed a lot of large particles in the water that looked like bits of tissue floating around. I thought that maybe there was something in the glass before I filled it with water. Used another glass and saw the same thing. Did this multiple times to make sure it wasn't just a fluke, and saw the same thing every time. I checked the water through my sink faucet to make sure it wasn't something in my main water line, and the water was totally clear from my sink faucet. So, something is going on with this particular filter. I'm asking for a refund and going back to the OEM filter. It appears others have had good experiences with this manufacturer, but it has not been good for me.

The company communicates very well and the product arrived on time. Unfortunately the product will not work on my refrigerator. Most of the views gave very positive results and had no issues. I received a product that will not tighten when it was installed. I have been installing similar filters for the past six years with no issues. It could be the one I received was a defective product since most reviews are positive. i would be very careful on ordering this product.

I have updated information on this product. I purchased another Samsung filter and have the same problem with installation. The problem maybe with the refrigerator not the filter. The area where the filter is installed maybe damaged so the problem may not be with this filter. I cannot evaluate the filter until I repair the refrigerator.
