Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by friederich Quality, style and value. Couldn't be happier.
I bought this microwave on sale for an exceptional value. I purchased it to match our new Samsung stove. I was a little apprehensive about the quality but as soon as I received it, I was very pleased. It is a solid appliance and looks great. It was rather easy to install even though the directions did everything possible to make it harder than it really was. Pros: door closes very easily and softly. Cons: blue digital display is a different blue than the "matching"stoves display and easily noticeable. Overall though, it's a steal for the price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Frances Good microwave, looks nice, good price, heats fast!
I like this product. I didnt need a microwave but i was getting a new stove and figured i'd get a matching pair (above the range). i ended up not matching them because this samsung was cheaper and bigger than the frigidaire that would have matched my stove yet if you arent paying attention they are made enough alike that you cant really tell they are different brands, except.. the color of the display, samsung is blue while most equipment uses green lights. i learned you can turn off the display for the microwave which fixes that! :D i'd recommend this microwave!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SeanJC Good Microwave, easy to install!
My wife and I liked this microwave's look, and were confident in the Samsung brand name.
It was easy to install, but be careful to doublecheck the included templates against the actual microwave, since mine was off 1/2". I had to convert it from top exhaust to rear exhaust, and that was quite simple to accomplish. Definitely a two person install, since you do have to hold the microwave to adjust how it attaches to the cabinetry and wall.
Works well so far, very powerful and warms food quickly.
Only downside - no LED light, it comes with a standard incandescent bulb.
Also after reading other reviews which said the door gets hammed in the install process we were VERY careful installing it and the door works and looks like it should. So I guess just be careful when installing and the door will be fine.

It has all the bells and whistles you would need in a microwave. NO complaints on this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by lindiana 20 months and broken door handle attachment
I was very happy with this Samsung SMH1713S Over the Range Microwave until the door handle broke at the attachment point after 20 months of use. We are a two person household and it got light, easy use. The handle is attached with a sheet metal type screw which goes into a plastic attachment piece. The plastic piece broke and there doesn't seem to be a way to replace it. Unlike some units, I cannot find a replacement door for this particular microwave. There was only a one year warranty. I cannot recommend this unit, but if you do buy one, get the extended warranty.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scott Looks great
Looks great, installation was a little tricky as the instructions cover other models it seems; still couldn't figure out how to install the charcoal filter... Much lighter than the microwave it replaced but looks and feels sturdy. I knew purchasing (based on other reviewers) that it did not have a "shelf/rack" inside, so hope they'll make changes to the photo(s)... Two speed on the exhaust fan and two nightlight modes are nice as well... Definitely recommend...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cathy This microwave is so much better than my old one.
This was a perfect choice. The microwave is easier to clean than what I had before and it's got more features. I love that it reminds me there is still something inside by beeping when it's finished over and over until I retrieve my food.
Customer service was great, got answers over the phone when we bought and the delivery and install perfect.

I previously owned a Samsung over the range microwave and was very happy - unfortunately it died after only 3 yrs. I replaced it with the closest model I could find. However, this model does not have an interior shelf and although the specifications listed a 3 fan speed (one of the features that made me choose this model) it actually only has 2 speeds. The light is very dull and overall it is just not as good as the older model.
