Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Lightingmylife LG Microwave Trim Kit
Word of warning, there is not a covered piece for the top portion of the trim kit. It is open so you can see down into the gap/hole in your wall. This is also true of the bottom section (which is not a big deal for my situation). The sides are covered. It is just a little disappointing since my microwave is at eye level and when you put food into the microwave, you can see down into the hole in the wall. I understand this is the least expensive trim kit so I guess you get what you pay for. The installation was easy and the instructions were clear. The finished installation looks great.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Godzilla Parts don't fit
If you follow the layout instructions ,the first problem you'll have is the door binding on the hinge side . To correct it you have to mount the unit 3/8 " off ctr. to the right . The other problem I encountered was the pre punched screw holes on the trim piece , don't line up with those on the brackets .No matter which way the trim piece was set they wouldn't match. As a matter of fact , I don't think the top bracket goes with the rest of the kit. The supposedly pre punched holes in the bracket were no where near where they were supposed to be. It seems that several shops made different pieces and no one in China tested to see if they fit.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mr23648 Cheap Plastic Corners
What you don't see in the pictures from LG is the plastic corners on this trim kit. I was shocked to open it up and see how cheaply this thing is made. LG conveniently hides the plastic corners in their pictures as they know it looks terrible. I will be returning this product along with the microwave and getting a microwave with a nice looking trim kit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Blake Not sure why other reviews downgraded this product - GREAT PRODUCT
This trim kit is more than just a trim kit. I contains mounting hardware that includes tip-over hardware and venting for the exhaust fan of the microwave. Instructions were great! Installation was a breeze!. It looks great! One review downgraded implying it wasn't very sturdy. This is not the case, plenty sturdy. Actually once installed, you will hardly ever touch it. And the bonus is that most trim & installation kits are 2 to 3 times the price this one is!. Fits the LG microwave perfectly!
I would like to have installed a microwave - convection oven, but all that are built in are larger and that would have required changing the size of my install space.
This one with the microwave are a great bargain!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Carguy Not the best trim kit I've seen....but....
This micro trim kit is a bit flimsy, but well engineered in terms of venting. It also compliments the excellent LG microwave that it surrounds. I've seen better and more solid trim construction with other trim kits, but their cost can be easily 3 times the price of this kit. Remember, this is a sub 200 dollar micro we are talking about here! I am a professional cabinetmaker. This combination of oven and trim is the best value I have ever seen. The last one I did for a customer was over a grand for the trim and oven, and had no real way to adequately vent it. Yeah it looked a bit more rich. But the oven has been a constant hassle to keep running. Before you buy any built in conversion, investigate the venting and how you will achieve it.
It's a bit tricky to install and align, and you may want to use better screws, but with care in installation will render a very nice appearance.
I highly recommend!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Manish Quality is good at a reasonable price
First of all buying at Home Depot is a no brainer. The Trim kit is a good quality steel frame and little thicker in width. Make sure it is not only compatible with your microwave but also fits the cabinet doors on the side. The trim after putting I noticed that it was touching the cabinet door on the left. The door would not close. The trim is little wider. I had to make some adjustments to the cabinet door.
The product is a good quality and light weight. Make sure it fits microwave as well the furniture around it. Also it is a special order so if it doesn't fit you may not be able return it so please double check before buying.

What you don't see in the pictures is the plastic corners on this trim kit. I was shocked to open it up and see plastic corners holding this thing is together. Nowhere in the product pictures do you see the plastic corners. I am truly disappointed in this product.
