Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by AJ 2 years in use and buttons on control don't work
It was good as long it lasted but that was for very short time - about 2 years. Its an expensive microwave if it were to last for that time.
Several controls don't work any more. Lights/Vent/Several Number buttons don't do anything. It's just useless at this point.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by remodler Great microwave with some excellent features
Considering the spotty reviews many microwaves get, we are very pleased with this unit we finally decided on. Basic microwave functions work very well: EZ timer, cooking modes, and defrost is right on the money. It is quiet and more powerful than our previous model.
Super features: 2 lights that, when we changed up to 40w from 30w give lots of light.
Powerful fan with clever slideout intake that get's the front burner smoke.
And the food warming feature is an incredibly useful idea.
This was part of a kitchen remodel and we are very pleased with it's looks and performance.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by FandG LMHM2017SW worked for 10 minutes only!!!
We decided to take back to Home Depot because the unit quit working after one week and 10 minutes of cook time. It was a very attractive microwave and was flawless, other than the typical misaligned vent which was no big deal and is standard on all. We would have replaced with the same model if LG had this in stock at this time. I think things worked out for the best because we figured out the extenda vent is not very practical. It made cooking awkward because you had to stand to the side to see your pots on the back of the stove because the vent blocked your view and arm range. Also, after reading other reviews on the vent cracking and melting, we just decided we would pass on this particular model. We rated this microwave a 2 because of the appearance and because we love Home Depot for helping us out with this big problem.

The microwave was delivered on time; the old unit removed and the new one installed faster than I could have unpacked it.
LG makes a number of highly rated appliances and this microwave is no exception. The product I purchased appears well made and is operating flawlessly.
This model has all the standard features you would expect plus a warming lamp and extended range hood that works almost as effectively as an external venting system. The controls and preset cooking options are very intuitive and most can be used without reading the manual.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MDcook Pretty, but not powerful
I have this over the range microwave in stainless steal and while it is pretty and matches my LP gas/convection range, it is way less powerful than the old microwave we replaced it with. So much so that I have to add time to nearly everything I make to get it to cook properly. I wish it came with a beverage setting to warm up coffee! It can warm up a plate, but not coffee (with one button.)

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by KLG6 BUYER BEWARE
We ordered this micro in stainless in Sept 2010 finally after the 3rd attempt in mid Oct. we finally got one that worked(mind you they took the old one so we had no vent fan for cooking) Seemed ok until I was cooking X-mas dinner and wouldn't you know the display went crazy. It was flashing and swirling and the micro. would not work. Well it is Feb 18 2011 and LG has sent the repair person 2 new doors and both times neither worked. I think it is clear that since we have had 3 micros and then 2 doors that this has got to be the worst micro out there.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NubsNob All that I was expecting
I was replacing a 17 year old microwave that died. Upon reviewing the major brands of ovens, I was drawn to the LG's features, mainly Extenda, Quiet Vent, and the warming mode. Of all the makes that I reviewed, LG appears to be the only one that offers a 10 year warranty on the tube. After installing the oven myself, I can say, that the LG appears to be well made and carefully assembled with attention to detail and fit. I used the existing external venting duct work, and can report that the 400 cfm Quietpower vent performs as advertised in regard to volume and quietness. The Extenda hood appears to have plenty of draw. The microwave itself is quiet while in operation. Judging by the fore mentioned features, I'll be more than happy with the rest of the product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MacDaddy Very Pleased
We purchased this unit on several points: larger capacity, increased ventilation, simple controls, and controls mounted lower. Generally we are happy with the performance of the unit, but it's only been in service for a few weeks so we haven't given it a thorough workout yet. It's physically larger than our old microwave and for me (6' tall) it cuts off my view of the range top controls compared to the unit it replaced (which I'm adjusting to). Fit and finish are good.
