Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tab555 Lots of features
This microwave has lots of features available. Although the reheat settings do not necessarily work efficiently and take too much time. There are numerous other features which I have yet to use. The popcorn setting does not work well. I like the shelf feature which allows me to cook more than one item at a time. Keeping the microwave clean is somewhat difficult. Stainless steel cleaner needs to be used on the exterior and although we have been extremely careful cleaning the keypad, there are scratches already visible. But overall, it is a remarkable microwave for the price.

We recently purchased this microwave from Home Depot. We were updating our rental property to get it ready to sell. We loved the stainless steel design, and it fits in perfectly with our other appliances. It was so quick and easy to install, and it works great! The dimensions were perfect for our over the range space.
We are so happy with this product. It made our kitchen look a lot more updated and installation was a simple process. I would recommend this microwave to anyone!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Turbojacki Keeps Breaking
This product is not quality and we're very disappointed with it. We've had it for 2 1/2 years and it is constantly breaking. First the touchpad went out and it was unusable. My husband read a bunch of blogs online from people who had the same issue. He tried things until it finally started working again. Today - i opened the door and a spring broke, now the door won't stay latched. Again, online a bunch of people are complaining about the same exact issue. We're waiting day to day for the next thing to go wrong. Personally - i think a nice appliance like this should last more than 2 1/2 years. Unfortunately, we're about to go out and buy a new one - different brand - more reliable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheMethod Does its job, looks nice
I purchased the entire Samsung Kitchen suite during the July 4 sale.
I don't use the microwave much but I had to purchase the entire Samsung suite package to match all the appliances. It wont get much usage but its just like any other microwave and does its job. I guess another pro is that its very easy to install and looks nice.

When looking for an above the range microwave, I wanted it to have a good venting system, a light, and a good heating element. This one has all 3 in a sleek package. I mainly use the microwave for defrosting and reheating food. This microwave somehow manages to heat my food without making my dishware lava hot! I think it is a great value and looks great too!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mememe 2 Year Lifetime or Less-
Mine was manufactured in May 2011. Installed August 2011. Failed without warning in January 2014. No power, lights, fan, nothing. Researched this model and the electronics are sensitive to steam and heat. Just what you don't want in an over the range model. I'll be buying a different brand.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ali03 great while it lasted
This microwave was wonderful during the warranty period, but just as the other reviewers have mentioned, the SE error began for us and now that beautiful microwave just sits there unplugged because when it is plugged in it randomly beeps without stopping. It isn't even useful as a clock. We are already in the market for a new microwave and I will definitely not be looking for another Samsung.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TexasDeano Great Microwave
I really like this microwave. I didn't really need a new one, but switched my stove from white electric to stainless gas. So I wanted to get a stainless microwave.
It has all the features you would want. It has a turntable, a shelf, and shortcut buttons for common things, like popcorn, reheating, add 30 seconds.
The light has three modes, off, low, and high. I like keeping it on low when I am not cooking. It acts as a nightlight for the kitchen.
The fan for the vent hood is really good too. My old microwave blew the filtered exhaust right back in your face. This one blows it up and away. And it has several speed settings. But the best thing about the fan is that it has a timed delay shutoff. That is perfect because you can use it while cooking, and then set the delay shutoff when you go eat to clear the remaining smoke, smells, etc. out of the kitchen while you are eating.
The next model up has the controls at the bottom so that it can be wider. I'm not sure that is worth it. This one is more than wide enough. So save a few dollars and stick with this one.
