Poor functionality

Digital Readout poor only able to read half of the 1st digit.
The Defrost function ceases after one minute of operation & then you have to wait around to restart again to complete defrost cycle

Samsung Microwave - Excellent Product

The Samsung Microwave has an excellent choice of pre-set & manual functions available. We prefer to heat up or cook regular meals using a power level + set time as it's often quicker & has more consistent results. This Microwave allows you to do this quickly and easily using the timer and power level options. It also has a child lock, sound on/off & a kitchen timer. It comes with a 2 year warranty & an extra option to cover it for replacement for another 2 years (so total of 4 years cover). It isn't as noisy and clunky as our previous Sharp microwave (which barely lasted 3 years!) & whilst we didn't set out to buy a Samsung brand of Microwave, we are very happy we did. We purchased ours 7 months ago and would definitely recommend it. Show reply

Worst appliance I have purchased, very unimpressed

A black faced box, that I can't see in as the globe is useless, can't read the panel as it too dark, keeps stopping during the defrost cycle, so you have to stay there to start it again, the alarm is annoying when it keeps going to get you to empty the microwave, and I struggle to open the door. Sometimes I can push the door button 6 or 7 times, and end up pullling it open from the door from it's frame. Not bad for a couple of months old. It doesn't heat very evenly, probably best suited in a staff room rather than a home. Show details

Very disappointed

Worse microwave I have EVER purchased. 12mths and it just stopped working. Temperature of food was always unpredictable never consistent. Push buttons needed firm touch. Very noisy and defrost was more of a cook then defrosting!! Show details

Style over function

Seems to have good build quality and basically meets my needs for a microwave, but not easy to use.
I have under bench space for a microwave, but when looking at buttons, the reflective plastic makes the keypad hard to see, as can be seen on the photo (Can you see the Start button? How about the Cancel button?). It doesn't help that you have to press the exact centre of button for it to work. There is no tactile feel to buttons either, and I'm relying completely on the little beep sounds for each press.
It looks nice, but annoying to use. It's an OK microwave, but it could have been a whole lot better. Show details

Wasted my money

It works.
Interior light so dim you can't see what's happening.
Display too dim. We had to stick on shiny stickers to find basics like Start and Cancel.
It makes an INCREDIBLY ANNOYING lot of noise.A single beep, once only, would do!
It is as bad as trying to cook with a demanding two-year old in the kitchen.
I would take it back if I thought I could get my money back. Show details

it does not meet my requirements

It is not easy to use. The selection panel is hard to see and the light inside is so dim you cannot see inside. This microwave was given to my as a gift after coming out of hospital. I am house bound and do not know what to do. I would not have bought this model and I am not happy being stuck with a product that does not meet my needs. Show details

Brand New - Doesnt Work

bought this yesterday, unpacked, plugged in and NONE of the buttons work. Completely unresponsive. So not happy. Now I have to take it back (in a ripped box) and have it replaced... Hope this is no a re occurring problem. Show details

Good, but expected better

Bought directly from Samsung
Buttons are hard to push
Inside is rather nice but I find the light a bit dim
Overly it does the job and heats things but I find for only cooking for a short time the plates are extremely hot.
FAULT - now 8 months later 3 of the buttons are not working, all in the same area. We are not big microwave users so it's not from over use but some sort of fault. I think I just expected better. Working with Samsung now to resolve this but be prepared for a drive to drop this off to repaired. Show details

Light has stopped working. Instructions indicate open and close door. Have not used ECO function but did as instructed without result.
Instructions for change globe is contact Samsung and get a technician to change.
I have experience in common repairs and have changed components in previous appliances and a Technician would probably cost more than the Microwave.
Surely provided unit is completely isolated and removed the globe could be replaced without drama.

Any reason you cannot see inside the microwave when cooking?

Because for fashions sake the glass has been deliberately made very dark. I used mine once and took ir back to Harvey Norman. In the end I purchased a nice unit from the K mart that I can see into.
