Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pegi JURY IS OUT!
We bought our microwave oven mid January. Oven looks nice, runs quietly and has all the features we use. In less than 60 days it quit doing anything. We had no functions except a "hot" electrical outlet. After contacting Samsung, we received a prompt service order and a tech was sent to fix what ended up being a bad thermometer. Hard to believe that one part controls all functions. It's fixed but now the timer won't register over 3 digits (for instance, 9:99 is as high as it goes) no matter what you punch in. Haven't decided what to do yet as our other microwave oven's timer works perfectly so we use it. Also find the feature buttons are hard to push. Not sure we would purchase this product again and have our fingers crossed it will continue to function as expected.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great Features -esp the sensor for reheating
We really like the porcelain inside too. No scratches, easy to clean. No more stains that you can't remove either!

Rather awkward controls; too many buttons to push for simple functions - like "30 sec" command should just run the device without any other actions. The "Options" are obtuse and could be consolidated into much simpler processes. Also, the controls have a heavier touch than we would prefer.
The stovetop illumination is excellent. Far superior to most other ovens. And the black interior is a good idea to mask the inevitable stains.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mastergunner No download for operators manual.
Must use trial and error to figure out some of the features. I have for a month and still no manual.

We are SO happy with our new Samsung microwave. It's not only functional, but also an attractive addition to our kitchen. I have two small children and use this microwave every day.

It's lovely looking in white and a very good size. I enjoy the eco option which reduces energy consumption by putting the microwave into standby until it's opened or any button is pressed.
The buttons are not touch sensitive. You must press quite hard to get the buttons to respond. In fact, I'm uncomfortable with the amount of force needed and I'm concerned about how long the touch pad will last as a result.
The stove top lighting is a perfect temperature - quite clean and warm.
The Options menu is a frat-grade joke. Each option is enumerated generically (Option 1, Option 2, Option 3...) on the microwave's display. There are 7 options, according to the fold out instruction manual, which correspond with the 7 enumerated options in the Options "menu" but while I believe I've set DST "ON" the time has not changed, and while I believe I've set 24 hr clock to "ON", the time is still shown in 12 hr fashion.
Come on. The display is big enough for "24HR ON", "DST ON". "Option-1" is thoughtless.
In all the microwave will do nicely. As I've said it's easy on the eyes and comes with interesting features but quality control where the button panel is concerned as well as interface design really need work.

It is an nice looking machine.
Installation was easy. I was able to mount and dismount the oven by myself; only weighs about 55lbs.
The buttons are a little hard to press. You definitely won't have to worry about accidentally pressing one while you're cleaning it.
The vent fan doesn't draw in as much air as you would think based on the amount of noise it makes.
It would be so bad if the air intake was somewhere near the output.
Other than that it performs well.

This microwave is a BEAST. Picked it up in store, brought it home and was warming-up leftovers in no time. Very quiet operation, excellent stove top lighting, grey baked-on enamel on the inside is a nice touch.
