We chose the LG Over-the-range Microwave with the extendable hood for our recent galley-style kitchen make-over. While we had a few installation issues (the contract had not seated the unit correctly to the existing duct work) we are very pleased with its features and performance. While the exhaust (vented to outside) is a little louder than we would prefer, it certainly seems to work well and the timer/turn-off features allows us to leave it running for a pre-set time and leave the room. The Sensor-Cook/Re-heat features work very well, though I have to admit that most of our microwave 'cooking' is limited to baked potatoes, re-heating left-overs/dinner plates, some packaged rice/pasta dishes, etc. We tend to not use it for preparing main dishes (meats, poultry, fish) but should probably explore those recipes. We particularly like the warming features and the ability to stack (stage) several times/levels to managing slightly more complex tasks though those features are not very well spelled out in the user manual. Overall, we are very pleased with this unit

Bulky design where the height does not might code because the distance between the stove top a microwave needs to be a certain distance. This distance is smaller because of the slide out vent. The microwave control panel is located directly above the stove top and sometimes goes bizerk cause by steam and heat. Prefer the side control panel and a shorter door.

Most features are good and helpful.

Comments about LG Studio Series Stainless Steel Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:
The unit is quieter than many I have seen and used. Many features, such as time of day and cooking buttons, are quite simple to use. However, it is deficient in one very important way: One can not run the unit for a specified length of time by pressing just one button. My previous unit would run for I to 6 minutes by pushing just one key from number I to 6. This unit does have a key (EZ on) but it goes only for 30 seconds and one can push it up-to 4 times to run it for 2 minutes but no more. One can also add to or subtract 10 seconds from the cooking time but only if the oven is already running. Cleaning and keeping the shine is a little bit more demanding because of the metal exterior.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Second one was fine
from Seattle, WA, USA
The first one we received after my husband and son-in-law spending 5 hours to install it, when we took off the protective blue tape the finish came off on the tape. I did not know stainless steal would come off on tape... The second on was fine and I do like the microwave. By the way Home Depot did the second install. They where great. LG not so helpful, or sorry. It was another week before I got the second microwave.

The LG LSMH207ST is really a great microwave. Our only problem was it was defective when we received it. We had already installed it before we realized the display panel didn't work. So it took about a month before we got that resolved, but once we did, we love it! I love the look of it and the vent that slides out. It is also very quiet. Our old microwave did a terrible job of defrosting meat, but this one does a terrific job of defrosting. Our old one would start to cook the meat when defrosting - not good. But this one defrosts perfectly! The con, as another reviewer stated, is the interior light. I can't even see inside the microwave when it's cooking. I might try swapping out the light bulb like the other reviewer did.

Love it. It is fast, quiet, and does everything I need. Very happy with my choice.
The Good and Not So Good
from San Clemente, CA, USA
The Good: Great Microwave w/ lots of features. Our previous microwave had 'Sensor' cooking, which was a 'must have' feature and a strong point for our decision to go w/ the LG LSMH207ST. Love the 400 CFM capacity pull out vent! The Not So Good: Only con so far is the interior lighting. I could barely see what was cooking. Not good when heating/warming sauces. I changed out the two 30w bulbs that came with it for 40w bulbs. This helped. Also the two cook-top lights are halogen. I would rather they be a variable LED type lighting. Also, the three buttons dedicated to 'Popcorn', 'Mac&Cheese' and 'Chicken Nuggets' are a big waste of one step functions for us.
more than i expected
from caseyville, il
to this day i am really impressed with this micro. it's the first over the counter i've owned and i can't believe the ease and usefulness of this product. every time i use it, i never have to worry about anything. it's quiet, good looking, and even has a sensing probe. a great product for your kitchen.
Love this microwave
from Fontana, CA
I really love this microwave, it is so quiet. The slide out vent makes it nice when you are cooking on the front burners of the stove, and with the turbo fan, no smoke stays in the kitchen. Have not found one thing that I don't like about it. Great buy.

This is an exceptional microwave. From it's stainless steel finish, sensor cooking feature, warming lamp and of course its quiet operation. This is a great upgrade for any kitchen. It also offers 2 tier cooking and best of all is the extended range fan which covers vapors from the front stove burners. Truly awesome!

I love the design of this microwave
from Marysville, WA, USA
I especially love the lower horizontal control panel. My wife is short and it is much easier to use. I also like the extended vent and the fact that it only beeps once. Our last microwave would beep until the door was opened and it drove us crazy. It is fast to heatup leftovers and easy to clean. I also have an LG washer and phone and am impressed with the quality of the products they manufacture. It was a little difficult to install but looks very nice in our new kitchen.
This product is a good value.
from New York, NY
I like the quietness and the overall quality. Advanced features like the radiation proof glass and additional vents are great. Control panel is not convenient to use. I prefer the large displays on the right side rather than at the bottom. One touch buttons for quick defrost and buttons for 1,2 and 3 minute cooking are needed. Once the cooking cycle is finished beep sounds few times. There is no reminder beeps in case we forget to take out the food.
