Great microwave oven, but issues installing in a 50 year old house
from Sacramento, CA
Comments about Samsung 2.1 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Microwave - Stainless Steel:
I love the the microwave over, but in out 50 year old house the door did not open completely. We have to put a hole in the wall to make the door open completely. The issue was a wall to the left of the over, next to the side the microwave oven door hinges. Once we finish putting the hole in the wall, we will have full ability to open the door as designed.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent designed microwave with all the features I need and then some. Easy to clean interior, great downlights and more than sufficient exhaust output power. I compared this product with many many others and I'm very glad I chose this appliance. Great value! Thanks Samsung!
This product is extremely upgrade
This product is so upgrade, it has a great quality. It is very easy to used, it works so perfect. The features are so easy to understand!
Great features !
from Colorado, USA
This microwave is a replacement for an old model in my parent's house where I now live. It was easy to install even for me and only needed help to lift the new one up on the bracket. I love the soften and melt butter feature as I do a fair amount of baking ! I have several Samsung appliances and will continue to replace the old ones with Samsung quality .
Installation requirements are not clear prior to purchase
from Spokane, WA, USA
I purchased this product to replace a 12-year-old GE Profile microwave. However, after I purchased it and read the installation instructions, it was clear that the cabinets above and around the microwave could not extend beyond 12". My cabinet above the microwave is 15". I could not find this installation requirement in any of the literature on-line, but it was clear in the instructions included in the box. It appears that either the air intake (or exhaust) was installed on the top/front section of the microwave, which is why a cabinet cannot extend beyond 12". If it did, then the intake/exhaust would be covered by the cabinet. This was not an issue with my old microwave, so it wasn't something that I even considered when purchasing a replacement. Overall, my rating reflects the design and on-line information. I could not use the product, but had to rate it to get to this section of the review.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great features, easy to use, stylish -- the best microwave I've ever owned!
from Fort Lauderdale, FL
We were faced with the dilemma of a small kitchen with shallow cupboards barely large enough to hold a dinner plate. To our surprise this microwave was one of only a few that extended out only 1 1/2" further than our previous model. And the cut away along the bottom of the microwave gave the impression that the unit did not extend out from the cupboards. What initially drew us to this model was the stylish, sleek, modern design. We were very impressed by the easy-to-use touch display integrated along the bottom of the glass door rather than on a side panel at the right, in addition to the preprogrammed settings for commonly cooked foods inside the door. We purchased the microwave just before Thanksgiving and our guests commented on the spaciousness inside and that it was almost large enough to cook a turkey. We use this microwave numerous times each day and are 110% satisfied. We love it!!!
Great Microwave & Nice Features
I bought this microwave to replace a 6 year old Samsung unit, and to match up with my Samsung Chef's Collection, slide in range. My selection amounted to really liking the glass touch sensitive buttons on the range, and my desire to get away from the mylar touch panels that seem to have problems. As a microwave, it has more than enough features to keep me happy, so I'd like to highlight the best of the features here: The positioning of the counter top lights is in the front section of the unit, so they really light up the cooking surface of the range. In addition, they are LED units that have a nice cool white light. (see photo# The interior of the unit is lit by a nice, bright halogen bulb, and even though the interior is gray in color it is still adequate. I like that the counter top lights can be set up to go on and off at a preselected time, and they come on at low brightness to greet us in the morning. The unit is much quieter than any other one we've ever owned. The exhaust fan has 4 speeds that range from muted in sound all the way up to the usual roar on high. Mounting was speeded up a bit because I was able to continue using the wall mounting plate from my old unit with no need to move it. Unfortunately, Samsung has changed mounting bolt locations that go thru the bottom of the cabinet above it. This required very careful locating, and drilling, along with moving the existing reinforcing under the bottom of the cabinet. Not a big deal for me, but some folks might feel challenged doing this themselves. The sensor cooking buttons work very well, and do a great job on popcorn or reheating a plate of food. You should be aware that when you use the sensor cooking, the manual recommends you wait for 5 minutes before you use sensor cooking again #I assume to allow the sensors to clear their sniffers). The only thing I feel worth noting is that with the glass / touch sensitive buttons, use up about 1/3 of the total glass surface on the door. This coupled with a noticeably denser screen to look thru, makes watching your food cook a bit harder for both short and tall folks.
2.1 cu. ft. Over-the-Range Microwave (Stainless Steel)
I have used most of the functions and they all work well. I am very pleased with the performance. The door of the microwave contains the functions of the microwave which I was concerned about when the door is opened and closed all the time. I have not had any issues with it so far. I do not slam the door at all, just close it with the handle. I would rather not had the large handle protruding from the face, but other wise I am very happy with my purchase.
Bright Display and very attractive.
from Amherst, OH, USA
This microwave is very elegant, stylish and has all the functions that we need. Quiet operation, sensor cooking is awesome and the LED lights are used everyday for a nightlight. Interior is durable and easy to clean.
great product for the money
Great design but door too hard to open. Have to grip and pull to get door open.
