Could be better
It does the job but does not seem to cook evenly and requires the food to be stirred regularly to get an even cooking. BUT the worst part if that the light is no where near bright enough and with a black interior and shiny front you cannot see how the cooking is going. Have to stand directly in front with dark coloured top to be able to see anything inside the unit.

Great product in resonable price. Easy to clean. Bit for features like burnt detection autooff. cannot detect smoke if something burnt inside. Bit dark inside. Cannot see what's happening inside while working.

Good size microwave, looks good too
I love the touch keypad of this microwave, it has a lot of options some of which I am yet to use e.g popcorn. It blends in with the rest of my appliances and does the job perfectly. I have no complaints.

Regretful Buy- Now I'm Stuck With It
Worst item I have purchased and I don't recommend anyone to buy one. I wish I had gone with the more expensive Sharp.
Not easy to use, you need to refer to the manual constantly to check programs as they only show on the screen as a number. You have to look up the number to find what it refers to. There are minimal programs and sensor cooking is limited, with limited weight options. The instruction manual isn't set out well and I find myself searching the entire book to find what I need. There are no onscreen instructions, so when I'm defros...

Aesthetically pleasing microwave with some caveats
The microwave functions fine and when clean looks great in the kitchen. It has two cons tho, it get dirty really easily as with any mirror finished item and the buttons are hard to press. Depending on where you put this microwave, u might have to brace the entire unit while you press the button in order to get it to register. A unique benefit of this microwave is that there is a silent mode where the microwave remains quite on button presses and when it is done.

Worth the money
This microwave is good looking one and heats up the food nicely.
It has all the basic programming features, popcorn, potato etc. Very easy to use and have very effective heating.

Lasted 2 years and one month
While it lasted it was ok and good for cooking whole potatoes. But when it breaks down completely a month after the warranty expires it represents poor value for money. I'll steer clear of Samsung products in future as I also have a Samsung fridge that just limped over the Warranty finish line and is no longer frost free. I would advise anyone against buying Samsung kitchen appliances.
Update: Was contacted by Samsung rep and graciously given the name of an authorised service centre where I could spend more money on this poor quality Item. A...nd yes it is true what the other reviews say about the buttons being hard to press! I had to put a block behind the microwave to keep from pushing oven to the back of the microwave cabinet as the grip of the rubber feet is not sufficient to take the pressure you need to apply to press a button on this poorly made product.

Nice size, work fine but needs a better buzzer
Have had it for a few weeks and have worked as advertised, has cooked noodles, vegetables and hasn't destroyed the original food texture. I enjoy the plus 30 seconds timer instead of needing to manually do it in my old microwave. Only complaint is the buzzer when it's done is not loud and sounds faded
This is perfect!
I purchased this microwave about 5 months ago. It was reasonably priced and i am really pleased with the appearance of this oven. It is the perfect size and i can even fit platters on the dish when i warm up nachos! I often use the timer while cooking which is a great function.
The Non-Responsive Buttons Makes It Unworkable
This is a good microwave with good heating, defrost and cooking settings, HOWEVER, the buttons on the panel are very, very, hard to press. You have to exert so much pressure on it for the buttons to take. For a person with weak hands/wrists or a disability, this microwave will be unworkable. I DO NOT recommend this microwave for this reason only. Also the only way you can exert enough pressure on the buttons it to use your right hand, grip the side of the microwave, then press the buttons with your thumb. If you plan to use your microwave in a ...fixed cavity in your kitchen where there is no room to grip the microwave on the side (as I did) then again this model will be unworkable for you. I recommend testing the buttons in store before you purchase. Make sure the microwave is connected to power so you can gauge how much pressure you have to exert.
This is a great product!
I'm really pleased with the quality and appearance of this oven. It arrived today - a day ahead of schedule - and was very securely packaged. I used it to heat a frozen burger and it took a little longer than my old one but that's okay. I haven't set the clock or used the kitchen timer yet. It seems a little complicated but I'll take my time and read the user's manual. All in all, I don't think you can go wrong with this product.
Arrived promptly, packaged well, smaller footprint than our old microwave with a larger inside area, works perfectly with more watts of power. Very happy with this item.Perfect size. Cooks quickly.
I had gotton my first house and i needed this. It microwaves food good. No problems at all.works great - I would buy again.
Good Quality and in line with other Samsung devices
I feel that my new microwave is very good quality and in line with other Samsung devices that I own, it has so many functions and also it is quite easy to learn to use the microwave and can use all those multiple functions with ease. I was afraid that I would only learn how to operate the basics. It heats very evenly and is a pleasure to use!
Bought the new Microwave from The Good Guys Osborne Park, the service we received was second to none, great experience with the staff, even carried the Micro out to the car for me, the microwave does everything we wanted from it, more than happy to recommend the product, with one slight issue the internal light is not very bright other than that love it
Good quality product!
The old microwave I had did not cook my food all the way through, this may have been due to the design of it. When I bought this microwave I came with an open mind. I found that it heated my food thoroughly, and it did it quickly. I like to reheat my left over pizza in the oven, and it does a great job in maintaining some of the texture of the pizza.
This microwave is the best out of all, possibly 6, that I have owned. The power settings are right for once, no dried out food! I love the 'keep warm' & 'my plate' features. The 'steam clean' care is awesome! Who wants to clean the microwave? 'Soften/Melt' is a new feature for me & I use it often! It's just very smart & takes a lot of the thinking out for s a busy woman!
Works well! No issues and have had it almost 6months. Easy to use, clean number, pictures, and buttons. Easy to clean- simply wipe out the inside and wash the tray.
The outside gets grubby easily as it shows every mark due to it being a mirror-like finish. Therefore requires constant cleaning- only letdown.
Shonky after-sale service
Bought a new m'wave, as above, and tried to contact Samsung to ask (1) how, if at all, to illuminate the oven with the oven door closed, and (2) how to illuminate the control panel. I am visually impaired and these features are important to me. They had the gall to tell me that the information I wanted will cost me $100, otherwise I can only contact them by phone to complain about this, presumably at a cost of $100.. The other features seem to work okay but this puts a big ? over their after-sale services.
This is a great microwave, with plenty of room and power.
Reheating is a dream with this microwave due to its large internal size and inverter technology.
It is well worth the extra money for this model, it is very stylish and easy to use, even the kids can use it.

It is one of best microwave by samsung, the good thing about this microwave is that you have a little container of water to hang inside so your food dont gets too dry while heating it with this microwave. The ceramic and glass inside makes this microwave is easy to clean
Questions & Answers
May I ask why this is not sitting flat on my benchtop? There are 3 moulded feet and 1 rubber foot. The left hand front moulded foot is not touching the bench top. It is a stone bench top where previously another microwave stood.
Hey Wendy. Are you able to check and ensure the surface you're resting your microwave on is leveled? Alternatively, please place your microwave on a different surface to ensure that the microwave is leveled.
It is a solid stone benchtop and has been checked with a level. I have tried on different surfaces with the same result.
