    My LG purchase

    Very happy with purchase . Picked up from store immediately after placing order. Very easy to use and it cooks evenly. Customer service pick was very helpful and even loaded it in the car for me . Only concerns that I have is being unable to see food when it is cooking . Not sure if a brighter bulb inside would eliminate that issue.

    Good microwave

    We were torn about which microwave to get. We needed one to fit on the counter, but not so big that it would take up the entire counter. We also needed something large enough to handle our normal cooking tasks. This worked out to be a good balance of price, size, power, and features. There are a couple of things I don't like, but I'd say they're somewhat minor. The glass on the door is pretty dark and very hard to see inside when something is cooking. I realize it's a mirrored look, but it would be nice if the light inside could make it so we could see the food heating. The buttons are a little hard to read unless you're at the right angle and pretty close to the microwave because of the mirrored finish. The mirrored finish also attracts fingerprints like crazy. They clean up easily, but do show quite a bit, especially with small kids around. None of those detract from the function of the microwave to heat food, but could make a difference to some.

    Has the features for a decent price

    Bought this to replace a Sharp that lasted about 20 years, if that exact one were still available, I would have bought it again. This MW looks good on the counter, but it needs soft rubber feet to keep it from sliding around when you press the door open button. I like the keypad in terms of cleaning, it wipes clean easily, but the buttons can take a medium hard press to register. Sensor cook works perfectly for popcorn. Other units I've owned and used have a minute+ button, hit it once to go for a minute, twice for two, etc. This unit does the same but in 30 second units, so for a minute, you have to press it twice. Also, I'd like to press in the amount of time then hit the timer to time something, but the timer on this is more complicated - you have to press timer, then the time, then start. That takes a little getting used to. One thing I like is that when cooking is done and it beeps, if you don't open the door, it will beep again in a short while to remind you that something's still in there (and keep on doing this until you press stop or open the door).

    Well, it's a microwave and that's about it. Our old microwave died and we've now had this one a little over a month. I loved our old microwave and looked for one that had similar features. I wanted a 30 second function along with the 10 second more/less capability. I also wanted one that didn't continuously beep when done - but this one fails in that feature in that it gives four beeps when done and then three beeps every minute after that, but it will only do it four times and then it stops. I find the sensor cook settings to be completely useless since you have to take the food out of it's packaging (ie: microwave packaging) and put it in a dish covered with plastic wrap. Even after following directions it seems to either cook too long or not long enough (admittedly, I've only used this a couple times). It's also lacking in power, our old microwave was also 1100 watt but heated faster/better than this one. What took one minute in the old microwave takes one minute and 25 seconds in this one. It is near impossible to see inside while cooking unless the room is darkened .. but then it will be impossible to read the buttons;you will need good lighting to read the buttons. This microwave will meet your basic needs and looks kind of cool (except for the fingerprints that show very easily), but it's not anything to brag about. I would recommend this microwave because it meets our basic needs but not if you want to use the sensor.

    Good replacement for 23 yr old Sharp

    This was a replacement for a Sharp carousel microwave I had for 23 years that died. Hard to find one that measures up. The first one I bought was a Sharp carousel, but it had a way too short cord and the turntable was small and cheap quality. After lengthy phone call to a Best Buy in-store customer service rep trying to find a microwave with cord longer than 2 ft., she offered to transfer me to someone at Pacific Sales inside that BB store and Bingo! He was able to tell me about this LG model that has a 3ft. cord. and a larger interior and turntable. It was easy to set up and looks good. Also is pretty quiet. I still have to learn the shortcut controls. My only complaint is the print and the buttons are very small on the control panel and I have it placed low so it is hard to see.

    Good microwave. Have to work the angles correctly in order to see the buttons, but it doesn't bother me much. Reflection on the front may cause conflicts in a kitchen that isn't well-lit, due to the reflection on the buttons. Also, you're not really able to see the food inside because of the reflective display. I'm satisfied with the sales price, but for full retail, I would've probably returned it. Hope this helps.

    Bought this microwave because it was the closest fit to my built in size. Microwave takes longer then previous one that was 1200 w. This one is 1100 but old one took 1 min 30 sec to boil water, this one 2 min so the 1000 w diff is a lot. This microwave looks great! But, the great looks have a cost. The touch pad is a bit hard to see because it is has a reflective finish. The inside is dark grey and not white, plus the light is on the side rather than in the back. This makes it a bit hard to see the food while cooking. That is why I said it was good and not great.

    Purchased this microwave when our 10 year old Sharp gave out. Had just remodeled the kitchen so went with the White color version. The White color looks great in our kitchen and the mirrored glass door is a nice touch. However, the number pad seems to be white on silver, or mirrored. The numbers are hard to see and I find I need to move my head up or down to get the reflection just right to see the numbers. I also miss the one-touch Reheat button that the Sharp microwave had. Other than those two minor inconveniences we are pleased with our purchase.

    I have only had it for a month, but it works and does everything I need it to do. The reflective glass gets smudged a lot, but cleans off real easily. It's really pretty in my white kitchen. My only annoyance is that when the microwave goes off, and you dont get your food right away, it keeps "going off" over and over until you open the door or hit clear. My old microwave reminded me it was finished with one beep, but this one does the full 4-5 beeps. I know, microwave! I'll be there in a minute!

    We had not purchased a new microwave in years. The sensor-cooking features are wonderful. Only problem we had was the first one we took home lost power after a week. Best Buy made the exchange easy, however, and it has been performing well ever since.

    Overall, this is the best microwave I have used. The capacity is just right, not too big and not too small. The mirror door gives it an ultra sleek look in the kitchen. The best thing is that it has the perfect wattage for cooking frozen dinners, most of which give cooking instructions based on an 1100 watt microwave. The interior surface is also easier to clean than the other microwaves I have come across before.

    Overall, its a decent microwave. Returned a sharp for this one. Sharp stopped working within warranty period. So far, it functions fine and is easy to use. Fits nicely on small counter space. Looks good, too. Good quality and easy to clean.

    Great if you don't want to watch!

    This microwave works great for the job it's supposed to do. It cooks well and it's easy to figure out how to press the buttons to accomplish what you want to do. My only complaint is that because the front is heavily mirrored you can't really see inside unless the room around you is quite dark. If you'd rather see yourself and the room around you rather than into the oven, this is perfect. So, for example, if this is mounted at eye-level over a counter you work at while cooking and talking to co-workers/friends, it's perfect. If you don't believe the adage that a watched pot never boils and like to watch, get one you can see into.

    LG microwave works great

    After moving to a new place I did a quick search to find a microwave that would be inexpensive yet well manufactured. This LG microwave was not only had very good reviews but also on sale (9/2016) Has several pre-set features that we all commonly and works well (popcorn, rehear, defrost, etc.) no need to +/- seconds to the settings. I'll admit I only read the manual for warnings and just tested as many controls with the "man" manual... overall I find myself warming most refrigerated leftovers for 30 seconds and comes out fine. Pros: - Lighter than it looks but well built - Relatively easy to clean, just don't leave splatter in microwave too long. - Easy pre-sets to learn and use Cons: With the metallic grey color I got, finger prints are inevitable (window cleaner fixes that) No complaints here especially for the price and my usage. I would recommend this microwave as a contender if you were comparing.

    Not bad

    The LG Microwave is the right size, right color, and overall performs quite well. Only 2 minor negatives; 1) this is a countertop model that has hard metal 'feet" on the bottom, so every time you push a button on the front of the unit, the entire oven slides backwards on the counter and 2) it simply isn't as easy or intuitive to use as the 20+ year old Sharp Carousel microwave oven it replaced. I was able to largely solve the "sliding" issue by putting some stick on cork disks on the metal "feet", so that's now much less of an annoyance. I suspect my second concern re: the lack of intuitiveness is probably just a learning curve issue.

    Cooks fine but control panel difficult to see

    Posted .

    The white lettering on a silver background of the control panal makes it really difficult to see the options. Also it is difficult to see through the window while the food is cooking. The window is more of a mirror than a window. And also in order to use the special features like the defrost options, the sensor touch, the power level or the melted and soften options, you really need to follow the manual. So you would need to have the manual accessible unless you are able to memorize all the charts. For my old microwave I read about the options once and was able to put the manual away.

    Great Microwave, Great Price

    I purchased this for the lunchroom at work. After doing lots of comparisons and reading reviews we decided to go with this one based on size, power, and price. We also wanted a reasonably well-known brand with a reputation for reliability since this was going to get some heavy use at work. When the microwave arrived everybody thought it looked very nice and after setting it up and using it for a few weeks, we are very pleased with it. And to be clear, it is getting heavy use. I would conservatively estimate it is used10 times per weekday. Microwaves should really be a set it and forget it appliance. My personal expectation is that you should get 10 years of service before having to replace one. Only time will tell if this is that kind of appliance but, I have high hopes. At $92, the price was right.

    Surprisingly quiet. Cooks quickly, evenly and in less time than our former GE. It has a energy saver feature for clock to sleep. Perfectly melts or softens using the proper buttons. We can fit a large platter (presents a 18-20 lb. turkey) in the microwave without issue. The design was brilliant, concaving the inner walls to allow larger items. I just wish it talked in Korean, lol Why 4 stars? We don't all believe a 5 star rating, nothing is perfect. ;)

    We purchased this microwave about two months ago when our old Panasonic died right after the warranty expired. The Panasonic was really awkward to use, especially when trying to change the power levels. It gave very little feedback and I was never sure if I'd set the power level correctly. The LG by contrast is straightforward, and tells you on screen so you know what you changed the power to. The convenience buttons work great, the oven is spacious and easy to clean. We have two teens and use our microwave A LOT and so far it seems to be quite durable. Everyone is loving it.

    Good Micro - some changes not for the better

    Nice looking and perfect size for a counter top with 1.4 cu, ft. Changes to design that NOT allow you to watch food cooking so you can catch spills are dumb. You cannot see in the door!. The inside is a dark material and the light that is on while cooking is worthless. Also the touch pad is a reflective surface with smaller numbers - really dumb for easy vision. You must bend to see the touch pad. Also the beeping at the end cannot be silenced as was with the older microwaves. It continues to beep and beep until you can stop whatever you are trying to do in the kitchen and address the END. NO OPTION menu. Unfortunately this looks like the state of the art for a microwave of this size. My old Kenmore only lasted 4 years but it was more feature rich and user friendly. PS the new Kenmore looks way more cheaply constructed than the LG - hence the purchase.
