Summary: We bought this appliance in a big box store, and it has been nothing but a headache. We have had several issues within the first year. First, the turntable cracked under less than average use. Samsung replaced it.
2 samsung kitchen appliances out of 4 are giving trouble
12 July 2015
Excerpt: This microwave looks good but the electronics on it aren't very good. The fan comes on, on its on. Not because the range under it is being used either. I go weeks without cooking anything. I'm single male, so none of my products have been used very much. The led lights come on by themselves also.
Cons: Did not meet expectations, gave trouble after the warranty was gone, Poor quality
Excerpt: My husband and I took delivery of our new Samsung Microwave Oven on June 2, 2015. This microwave is solidly built and has a lot of great features including convection cooking. Functionality of all of its features are very intuitive.
Excerpt: I'm very happy with this oven. I purchased the older model on sale and love it. Roasts a 6 lb chicken in an hour and the results are juicy with a beautifull crisp skin. Convection bake works great and is a little faster than a regular non-convection oven but without heating up the kitchen as much.
Summary: Purchased four years ago. About six months ago the cheap plastic handle broke off so I fixed it with cement glue. Finally last week I tapped the door edge with a plate and the entire front shattered (in place).
Excerpt: The dial feature is quite nice, being able to scroll from item types and setting the time. Still figuring out how to get the convection as a time saver, but having the second dry heat alone is a big help.
Confusing and tedious to learn...TOO MANY PRESET FEATURES!!!!

Excerpt: I have a Master's in Home Ec/Consumer Science and I find this appliance very confusing to figure out and learn. I used my old microwave (not convection) to cook a lot of different things not just reheat or cook convenience foods.
Pros: Attractive, Inexpensive
Cons: Did not meet expectations, too many presettings
Excerpt: This is a beautiful looking microwave with a bunch of flaws. It's hard to read the buttons to push what you want it to do as it is not lit up. The cook top lamp under the microwave is WAY TOO DIM!! And that's on high! and the fan is INCREDIBLY LOUD even on low!
Pros: Inexpensive, Realistic color
Cons: cook top lamp way too dim, Did not meet expectations, hard to read preset buttons on number pad, vent fan too loud
