I chose this model based on CR recs and its great price. Install was straightforward. It looks great with my stainless range, fridge, and DW.

I was upgrading from a small countertop model and am astounded at the capacity and power of this thing. I have to relearn how to cook all my favorite foods in the micro. On that note, I wish the presets counted down the time and power they are cooking at rather than just continuously flashing "dinner plate" or "vegetable", etc. Every time I use one, it's a guessing game. And for some reason, I cannot select to cook 1 "hot dog"; the minimum it pops to is 2. Also, having to press the START button even when using the express codes and buttons is annoying.

I agree with others that the interior light in this unit is far too dim; it's practically useless for viewing food inside. I do like the Hi/Lo downlight and the multi speed fan, which is super powerful, albeit a bit noisy.

Overall, for the price, power, and capacity - this is a great value; with some reservations regarding the presets and the useless interior light.

Pros: This is a beautiful mcrowave with rugged features. It has a thick and sturdy handle - something that I looked for since my last microwave handle came off. This is my first microwave with a rack, but I elected to remove it due to a problem with these types of ovens getting crumbs/trash in the rack supports, causing it to spark. Keep it clean, and you shouldn't have a problem. We just dont use it. Cons: This was a fairly pricey microwave, so I expected sterling performance. Unfortunately, the first thing we noticed, was a rattling noise as it cooked. The next, and most disappointing, is the clear coat over the buttons began wearing off ony after a few months of use. And finally, the timer/clock display is too dim to see accross the kitchen.

      Comments about Samsung 1.8 Cu Ft Stainless Steel Over The Range Microwave:

      I must say I expected a longer life from this unit. It died almost exactly 3 years from install. It just blacked out and gave up the ghost. I loved it while it lived, but I need one that will live longer.

                    The only microwave that I have ever owned that completely shuts down if you cook anything over 3-5 minutes. Sometimes it comes back on after about 30 minutes to an hour. Tonight it seems to be dead for good!!!

                                We had a new home built and had all Samsung devices put in - dishwasher, range, microwave, and refrigerator. On the range, the knobs have broken off for a second time in two years. They keep cracking at the plastic piece that turns the gas off and on. This is the whole set of 5. On the microwave, the handle to the door has completely broken off. With the dishwasher, if you can call it that, there is constantly an issued with the dishes actually getting clean. I've made the decision to start replacing my Samsung devices as they fail with non Samsung prodeucts. I'm sure this will be cheaper in the long run instead of having to buy new pieces and get repairs done on a regualr basis.

                                    I found that if I hit the stuff for couple of minutes many times it heats high and microwave shuts off automatically. During that few minute period, microwave just does not work. After cooling off after few minutes it starts automatically. This is very annoying and found very hard to understand, why even after less usage it needs to shut off. I also noticed that the clock does not work as expectedly and it resets after some time and every time needs to set up again.
