There are so many different types of refrigerators on the market that it is dizzying.

Blah, blah, blah. It will make your head spin. And, so will some of the prices.
I did my research for two years before buying the best fridge for my lifestyle and cooking habits. Not everyone needs the same fridge, so good thing there are a dozen options.
My preference is to have the freezer on the bottom with a French door refrigerator. To me, the freezer is just a frozen storage drawer that I do not use but a few times a week. But having the fridge on top is great because everything is within easy reach. Everything. The doors have deep shelving for all the bottled goods. The led lights are like my food is on stage, so I can see everything. The pull out shelves are fantastic. Some even have a feature to slide half back for taller items, like a bottle of wine. The feature to have an interior drawer located at the bottom of the fridge was not all that important to me, but as it turns out, I love it because all of my cheeses, platters of food and shallow items are easily accessible. The plus side of the shallow drawer is that you can set it at a different temp than the fridge, which is great for meats to keep fresh or a slightly lower temp for defrosting. The fruit/veggie drawers are full size and box shaped, with tons of room, opposed to the ones that have a slanted back to the drawers, decreasing space.
The freezer drawer is not a wire rack type, it is a plastic drawer with a sliding top shelf. Perfect for everything and it has so much space. The ice maker is internal so I cannot even see it. I love the feature of having filtered water dispenser inside the fridge because the mess water and ice make when it is on the external drawer drives me nuts, especially if you have stainless steel, which should be called stained steel because every single smudge makes a stain, which is a pain to clean (especially if you have kids or a dog).
I have a Samsung Refrigerator and cannot say enough good things about it.
For me, it is freezer on the bottom, French doors on the top. I like the French doors because when open, there is more floor space for someone to pass behind me. And, I put frequently used items on one side as not to open the whole fridge, saving energy. I use the water dispenser and fill a pitcher of water daily and keep it right there in the fridge.
