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.

A little wobbly when spinning
from Roseburg, OR
Heats pretty evenly but the glass plate inside spins off balance frequently
Good size microwave, good button selection, easy to use. Only thing I don't like is the turntable is not one smooth operation, it jerks when it turns.
Nice machine but buttons are awkward
from Tucson, AZ
First off, it's a very nice microwave, lots of features and it installed easily. The buttons however are quite awkward to use. It's not easy to find a button's "sweet spot" so a bit of hunting around is required to figure out exactly where a button needs to be pressed and the buttons require more pressure than on any other microwave I've ever used. I'm sure I will eventually get used to the control panel but if it didn't involve un-mounting (dismounting?) I'd return it. I'd only recommend this microwave to friends with the caveat m to "try before you buy" to see if they can put up with the awkward button presses.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

If you are looking for a basic microwave this one is it. Yes buttons take a little extra pressure on the keypad and it does not have a double rack inside. No it doesn't have one push buttons ie push 1 for one minute on, other than that seems to be a good microwave.
from Philadelphia, PA, USA
Kitchen remodel bought higher end Fridge , Range , Dishwasher. Mid range MicroWave. does what it's suppose to do. Looks good. Turntable get of set a little but not a deal breaker. Reliable cooking. easy to use. Priced right.
from San Francisco Bay Area, CA, USA
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.
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.
from Columbia, SC, USA
This product heats very evenly and its easy to use.
Love the features and the cost. Works quicker and quieter than our previous microwave.
