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.

Features are very adequate.
Comments about Samsung 1.8 Cu Ft Stainless Steel Over The Range Microwave:
The features are very adequate, without being so overly sophisticated that they're useless for the average person. Sometimes simple is better. Downside: There should be at least three bolts securing the front of the microwave to the the cabinet so as not to distort the top panel at the front. My 10 year old Samsung (almost identical to this one) had three bolts. Secondly, a previous reviewer reported the touch buttons take more pressure to push, a slight annoyance. He was absolutely right. So, if you are feint of finger, choose another. I'm happy enough.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This product has great features

Really happy with this Microwave oven
from Woodbridge, VA, USA
Our 16 year old microwave finally gave up the ghost. When we found the Samsung in one store, I came home researched it and found the same one in a competing store at a lower cost. It is a great package. Just what we were looking for. The ceramic interior is unique and vey easy to clean. So far I am vey happy with this microwave.
love my new microwave features
from Arlington, WA, USA
just installed. haven't really used it yet. installation was very time consuming for my husband.
from Las Vegas, NV, USA
I'm going on my third microwave in 2 months. First one made really loud noises after being on for over 1 minute. Second one has a faulty fan, works OK on low, but on other speeds make loud noise like fan is hitting something. I'm waiting for third one to be installed. it is also hard to use the buttons, you must press right in the middle. if I had a choice I would get a different model
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
A rare Samsung product that is unreliable
from Eatontown, NJ, USA
I have a house full of Samsung products and I have been more than happy on all of them. This is one exception. It seems that the keypad is not that reliable. I have called for repairs once and they replaced the keypad however after a few month the keypad is not working again. It is cheaper to have the thing replaced than to have it repaired again.
Everything you need
My whole house is Samsung this is my 8th samsung product
Users Manual is lacking
from Overland Park, KS, USA
I really can't hardly rate this unit by any criteria yet, but I had to choose some stars to get to this point I think. Anyway, I haven't even used this unit yet, but I'm greatly disappointed in the user manual included in the box. It tells you very little. I was mystified. It has all these features, and you just have to guess how to use it. I thought surely there's more. So I searched the Samsung website, and sure nuf, there is a much more comprehensive manual there. But you really had to seach for it, and select a "more" button to even find it. I guess it saves a few bucks to not print a manual and include in the boxed unit, but come on..
from Parrish, FL
New owner of this product. So far, I have no complaints. My compliments on design and operation. Look forward to a long ownership of this product.
