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.

Died in 3 years
from Arlington, TX, USA
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.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This is garbage
from Phoenix, AZ, USA
I owned this microwave for 6 weeks when it made a sad sound and died completely. 3 weeks later it is a shiny storage unit above my oven. Worst purchase ever.
This microwave does everything
from Queens County, NY, USA
My only complaint about it is that the stainless steel on the door came lose after 1 month and I had to gorilla glue it back on. Killed the illusion for me a little bit.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
This microwave is not as nice as my last Samsung.
from North Carolina, USA
I bought this microwave to replace my old one that went on the frizt. The new takes more steps to accomplish what I was able to do with one button on the old one. I am not real crazy about the dark interior. It take longer to heat my coffee in this one than it did in the last one.
full-size microwave over my stove
from Silver Spring, MD, USA
Has all the features that I wanted, including a turntable that turns automatically, with a light and fan, as well as many microwaving features.
Blew up after 14 mos

all Samsung appliances have had expensive problems.
from huntsville, Al
I have happy with all my appliances except the refrigerator
Features are very adequate.
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.
