Simple to use; don't need to read the manual to operate the mircowave. The pre-set buttons and display are very easy to understand and use.

I bought this because I needed a ventilation hood that would recirculate into the house with a clean exhaust. Everyone said "I'm perfectly happy with a recirculating hood! This will be fine!" Well, it isn't. Here are my beefs about the hood function: 1. It's noisy, with an irritating high-pitched whine; 2. Smoke and grease from the front burners of the stove go up the front of the microhood and aren't captured at all; 3. Smoke and grease that ARE captured are exhausted out the top of the unit, where they leave greasy marks on the front of the cabinets above. (This microwave, like most, is an inch or two deeper than the surrounding cabinets. Therefore, the top-venting exhaust runs along the face of the cabinet doors above.) I had looked at another combination microwave/hood that vented its exhaust out the front instead of out the top. I wish I'd gone with that one. More to the point, I wish I'd figured out a way to ventilate to the outside world, where I'd wanted to send the exhaust in the first place. And yes, all the filters are in place. The microwave functions themselves are awesomely good. As another reviewer noted, the keypad can be a bit stiff and the sweet spot for each button is small, but that's only a minor quibble. The programming functions and the power are great. It's neat to be able to microwave on racks. I haven't explored half the possibilities but I can see that this microwave, like my home computer, has a lot of features that I'll love. So: great microwave, but poor range hood. Given that the range hood was more important to me, I probably wouldn't buy it again. In fairness I'll note that my husband, who is not nearly as fussy about odors and grease as I am, does not share my reservations.

Comments about LG LMV1813SW White Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:
I bought this MW over a month ago. I'm happy with it with the exception of the control panel. The buttons are much harder to push than they should be.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I'm very pleased with this oven with the exception of the buttons which are hard to push.
By Pam S
from Omaha, NE, United States
Had this unit for 4 years, and of course it quit working over the Thanksgiving holiday.Called 2 repair places and both said it was too expensive to fix. Magnetron and rotating turntable just stopped. So unhappy and will not buy another LG product. Paying as much as we did, 4 years is totally unacceptable!!! DO NOY BUY!!!!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Had this for a few weeks. So far it has been great. Nice features.
from Keyes, CA, United States
It was great up until right after the 1 year warranty. It begun to let you only use it to heat for example 1 Hot Pocket and then you would have to wait a while to be able to use it again. About a month later it quit heating altogether.
You are only able to use it to heat or cook one item and then it won't work for several hours. I have had it just over a year and it has completely stopped working.

I've had this microwave about two months or so. The pluses: Easy to use, easy to clean and looks good. The minuses: Very noisy, heats unevenly, and poor lighting underneath the unit.
