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 purchased this product in a combo package frig, conventional oven, and microwave.. I bought it in november, but I didn't open my appliances until early February when my remodeling was complete. The Refrigerator was gorgeous and months later the stainless steel look had faded, a cosmetic deffect, the microwave was the first to go bad as the display faded, no lie within one month... I am a die hard Samsung fan and consumer of their 3D L.E.D televisions, 3D plasma and blu-ray players.. I own these products, but the experience of Home Appliances, has really upset me and depressed my wife..

Comments about Samsung 1.8 Cu Ft Stainless Steel Over The Range Microwave:
purchased this when replacing a 17yr old (functioning) microwave. Bought Samsung to match the fridge we bought last year. Also checked consumer reports before buying. chose this Samsung model as it had more useable space than some of the larger ones. works great, no issues.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It is what I need most from a microwave.
Has all the features I use normally and is 1100 watts which is a real plus.

Worst microwave I've ever owned
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!!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
The door on this microwave will not stay latched.
After 2 years of use , the door will not stay latched. I own 3 Samsung products and have issues with 2 of them.

This microwave performs very well. Have had no problems with this unit.
from Wasilla, AK
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.
Couple of issues found with this model
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.
Great except for the very low under light
from Oakton virginia
I am very disappointed with the very low under light . I bought this microwave from Best Buy. The picture showed two light bulbs . My microwave only has one light bulb and it is very very low even at the highest setting . Did I receive a bad oven ? Can this be fixed? Please let me know
This Product Failed in 2 years
When I see the internet review I see that this product has a lot of problems for being a Samsung. I am really disappointed!
from Albuquerque, NM, USA
This is a high end product that did not come with a high end cost. There are more features than I have ever had and that has led to more experimentation with different foods which were never considered for the microwave before.
