I do not like the fact that the timer chime stops after three chimes as I am often out of the kitchen when it will chime and Will easily miss the soundi . It should continue until cancelled Quite important to me as I often herd the last microwave I owned chime WHILE WORKING IN MY GARDEN I also preferred the protocol of tapping any number up to and including 6 to cook for 1 to 6 minutes. Now I must tap one of those numbers and then tap start. Not as convenient as my previous microwave. The button pushing on this Samsung is not sensitive enough. It requires too much pressure, leading me to fear it will wear sooner than my previous microwave.

The microwave works OK. It is lacking some features and the touchpad requires more pressure than I believe it should, but overall not a bad micro for the price. The real problem (and it is major) is the noise generated by the vent fan and the total lack of ventilation power to remove cooking byproducts. Impossible to carry on a conversation with someone in the kitchen while it is even on the low position, but with all that noise one would expect that it would at least do a good job of venting which it absolutely does not. It barely moves any air underneath while smoke, steam and other odors pour into the kitchen. It was professionally installed by the builder's appliance vendor, so I will make the assumption that it was done properly. The lighting is also so dim as not to be useful, but maybe that can be mitigated with a replacement bulb. All other appliances in the kitchen of this new house are Samsung and seem to be much higher quality with greater functionality. Any suggestions for the above problems other than replacing? I'm researching that possibility but it needs to have the same or similar dimensions.

Comments about Samsung Stainless Steel Over-The-Range Microwave:
The microwave works great for the short time I've had it. The biggest complaint I have at this time, the box did not have a user manual enclosed. I had to download it from the web. Would be nice to have a printed manual my wife could use to learn how to use it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Microwave works great. Everyone that uses it thinks it is noisy. Thank goodness I only use to heat up leftovers.
This product is very eye appealing, and user friendly.

Really enjoying my new micro. Easier to use than my old one, especially the defrost feature and like the shortcut buttons for veggies etc. food cooks great.

What can I say beyond survey , extremely perfect for the price & size. The function is great & looks great in kitchen. THANK YOU SAMSUNG!
Nice look, hard to work though

This is a beautiful looking microwave with a bunch of flaws. It's hard to read the buttons to push what you want it to do as it is not lit up. The cook top lamp under the microwave is WAY TOO DIM!! And that's on high! and the fan is INCREDIBLY LOUD even on low! The flimsy user manual was no help at all to replace the cook top lamp.
Avoid this model
I installed this unit 10 weeks ago. While it looks nice and shiny in the kitchen the use of this microwave is pure frustration. The touch pad is difficult to use and this model is lacking features that should be standard. Like being able to hit a number on the touch pad and have that number correspond to the number of minutes you want the unit to run. Instead you have to manually enter the full time using the clunky touchpad. The touch pad is anything but touch, the presses have to be very deliberate or the input is not recognized. I would recommend that you stay away from this particular model. Very disappointed!

Bought this after my old model (another brand) quit after 12 yrs. Installation was not easy. Followed the instructions and the holes I drilled were about an inch off (template was totally wrong). Once I got new holes drilled, one of the bolts pushed the nut into the machine. After fishing it out got it screwed in and encountered a new problem. Wood blocks are needed in the back to prevent the machine from lifting. The template shows these blocks in the front where the bolts go. The touchpad requires you to push very hard to work. Much harder than my old machine. And finally, you can't use the timer and cook in the unit at the same time. My old model would do this. You could use the timer for your oven and microwave something at the same time, but not with the Samsung.
