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:

      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

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

          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.

            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 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.

                                  If was a replacement for are microwave that we only had for 4 months. But this model is not quite and does not have as much room. Like the color inside better but that's the only positive.
