Summary: got a great deal on this over the range microwave Nice features, light is bright for cooking and dim enough for a night light. the fan is not too loud and does a good job of moving heat vapers.
Summary: Samsung doesn't illustrate the Platinum microwave of this model. Too bad, because it blends well with the tones of our other appliances. This microwave was an excellent value, looks classy in our kitchen and works effectively.
Pros: high power rating, attractive, cooks well, built in looks great
Cons: has no dividing shelf, keypad is hard to understand
Summary: The microwave does not cook the food or defrost the food if you are using the kitchen timer or vise versa. The timer on microwave is the only kitchen timer I have and if I need to use it and the actual microwave I can not. I read the manual and there is nothing in there that is helpful, it explains how to use the timer and how to use the microwave.
Summary: The only reason I have this SMH1611W/XAA product is because it's replacing a SamsungSMH9151. I would not have purchased this product. It's an extended warranty replacement from Lowes. Who expect to buy a brand new microwave. And it breaks down after less than 6 months of use? (didn't install it upon purchase, but 7 months later) I kept getting an SE error code on the 1st MW.
Summary: Our new SAMSUNG SMH1611S over the range Microwave oven works great. The installation was a snap, the unit fit perfectly into the cavity of the old G.E. oven that it replaced and it lined right up with the blower outlet and the wall hangers at top and back... The improvement my wife liked most (besides the many cooking features) was the much lower sound level of the outside blower.
