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.

Overheats and cuts off
from Richmond, VA
If I use the microwave for over 2.5-3 minutes, the unit overheats and turns off. I am assuming it is overheating. All the power goes off, including the display for about an hour. After that, it just randomly turns back on and you can use it again. It works fine for anything less than two minutes. Anyone have a fix for this?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
This model has updated features
from Cleveland, OH, USA
I recently purchased this model to replace one that was in a stove fire and two years old. The inside steel lining makes it very quick and easy to clean. The split lights on the bottom give more light onto the stove than just one in the middle. Also the fan has four speeds rather than just two. I would definitely recommend this to family and friends.
Love the sensor option
from Colorado, USA
I replaced this with a cheaper micro - but now I have what I really wanted. Love, Love Samsung products.
Excels at almost everything
from San Diego, CA, USA
Very nice microwave overall, but it's performance reheating food suffers in comparison to other microwaves I have owned. Sensor Reheating takes more than twice as long.
from Ohio, USA
Wonderful design and fits perfect. Dual racks are great and it cooks quick, the vent is sometimes loud on high but that is b/c it has dual fans.
This microwave is a good value for the money
from Copperas Cove, TX, USA
This microwave is a very good value with great features considering the price.

from Horseheads, NY, USA
We replaced all of our kitchen appliances started with dead refrigerator got a stainless Samsung so we replaced everything with Samsung stainless we love them....
Door Melted on the bottom
from Wiscon, FL 34601, USA
The door melted on the bottom, should be covered under warranty, can't recommend it unless the product is either replaced or parts given to repair.
Microwave is well designed and operates very smooth. The only down side was key pad malfunctioned but Samsung had it repaired within two days.
