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.

I love the design of this microwave and the capacity, but failure to perform makes it a good-looking paperweight. This microwave replaced another Samsung failed microwave, and worked wonderfully, however, after about two and a half years, it started to lose its settings and repeatedly needed to be unplugged and/or be reset. A repairman removed the door and supposedly fixed the issue about 3-4 months ago, but now it is doing the same thing. Upon resetting the clock and trying to microwave something, it will count down, but doesn't light up when opening the door, nor will it function. This is too expensive to continue to fix, I'm sorry we went through two Samsung microwaves to conclude that despite the power, capacity, style, features and ease of use that made the Samsungs attractive, we will not spend this kind of money on lack of reliability again. This is the same issue that made the store replace our first Samsung microwave, and yes, we have had the wiring and breakers checked with extremely reliable electricians both times to rule out any electrical faults.

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

    I expected more out of this microwave. It looked and sounded good in the store, but when i got home, I discovered there were features missing that my 9 year old one had. For one, I cannot time and microwave at the same time. The buttons are hard to push, especially for my wife who has some arthritus in her fingers. I didn't like that I had to ask for a users guide for the unit, as it didn't come with a detailed one (only brief descriptions of each button), it didn't have one online, and I had to request one from customer service. The reason I bought this Samsung unit was the good experiences I had with 2 TV's and a refrigerator.

    How do I use it?

    Pros

    • Lots of features

    Cons

    • No instructions

    Best Uses

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

      I've been using microwaves for 40 years. I have even baked cakes and brownies. This item has some nice features. It is probably the most advanced I have ever owned. The only issue I have is out of the box there is no user manual. There is an installation manual and a limited user manual that explains nothing. The program buttons on the unit can't be used without instruction. The user has no way of knowing what program 1, 2 - 5 means without a manual so you won't be able to use it right away except for timed cooking. The website is confusing and does not and only takes standard keys or mouse input so it is time consuming. After registering the manuals for the oven are not readily available. I had to google to find the instruction manual because I could not locate it in my Samsung account.

      Nice Clean Design - Good Value

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

        We needed a new OTR microwave and found the Samsung 1.8 cu in (ME18H704SFS) on sale. I had a look at a number of reviews and it was rated good overall. It has a nice clean design. It also just happened to match our Samsung gas range, so it was a bit of a no-brainer. We also looked at a 2.0 cu. in. model that was on sale. It was fancier, but I didn't see any noticeable difference in the interior size, so we went with the 1.8. It has quite a number of features, which quite frankly, I will probably never use. I just need a microwave that heats stuff up when I need it to! The only cons I can dig up is the latch mechanism, which is a bit hard when opening and closing the door. It is still very new, so it may soften a bit with more use. Also, I find the exhaust fan somewhat noisy. I guess you could argue that it will not let you walk away and forget to turn it off... Overall a good microwave for the price.

        Its really really nice.. One draw back is the dark color interior.. Were all used to the white on the insides of microwaves.. So I guess now the new normal is dark inside..

                I bought microwave last week but never knew that screws can make such a big problem in mounting of OTR.. The threading of top mounting screws (2 nos) supplied with the microwave did not match with the hole given on microwave..one can imagine 50 lbs weight being lifted by 2 persons to keep it in position and the third person trying to fix the wrong screws supplied.. Finally, we overcome the problem by using old screws we had & it worked.. Also, there was no templet & manual provided along with the OTR.

                    This standard installation size, large cooking capacity microwave oven has a plethora of preset sensor settings, which I find very convenient. It looks great and has a large turntable, unlike many of the others that have dinner-plate sized ones. When you first run it, you may hear a noise that sounds like something is slightly loose, but they tell me that's normal. After a couple of uses, that noise went away for us, and it sounds fine. It has a rack for two-level cooking, but I don't typically use it.

                    We are happy with the 1.8 cu. ft. Over The Range Microwave with Sensor Cooking (Stainless Steel). It's easy to clean, warms food/beverages quickly and happy with overall performance, oven size and appearance.
