      There are better microwaves

      Posted

      TL;DR Overall, this microwave has questionable build quality with poor features. It functions as a microwave, but for the price I expected a lot more. I don't see this microwave holding up more than five years or so given the quality of the plastic and touch buttons. Unless this microwave finds itself below $100, I would avoid it. This microwave was purchased to replace a 12 year old beast that finally quit working. We regret that decision. To start off, the microwave was damaged out of the box. The vent area near the back was noticeably dented. Since it was on an area of the device that would be hidden, and since it was mainly cosmetic damage, we ignored it. The device itself isn't of the best quality with most of the housing being plastic that feels like it won't hold up to the test of time. Specifically, the plastic around the front vent and door seem to be of a cheaper quality that, over time and use, will become brittle and damage easily. The buttons on the front of the device are stiff and require a decent amount of force to register, which makes me wonder how easily they'll become desensitized from use. The vent works as well as an internal vent can, meaning not well, and has the settings of loud or LOUD. The under-light works as a night light, but isn't bright enough to do much by. The overall build quality makes me think we'll be replacing this in less than the 12 years we got out of our old microwave. Build quality can be put aside if the microwave itself works well. And I do admit that the microwave does work. You put things in, you put in the time, start it, and things become heated. The problem lies in that execution. The pre-programmed buttons are not very useful to the point that you might as well ignore them in favor of your better judgement. Things either ended up overcooked/burnt (popcorn) or undercooked/cool (pizza). Trying to use the +30sec button with these pre-programmed times didn't work, making both functions pointless. In addition, the +30sec button doesn't start the microwave. I was quite fond of my old microwave's ability to make tea. Put the tea in, press the +30sec button to 2 minutes, and then the machine would automatically start working. This microwave does not do that. Using the +30sec button doesn't turn the microwave on in this fashion; you'll still need to press the start button to begin cooking. It's a minor inconvenience, but one that really irks me. What annoys me even more is this microwave's incessant beeping. This microwave will alert you when its timer runs out, like a standard microwave, but the microwave will continue to beep every few seconds until you open it/press a button. It's infuriating, especially since most things require a minute or two to cool (or steep in the case of tea) before being used/moved. And you can't turn it off. Numerous times now I've been in the middle of something I can't tear myself away from (tempering a sauce, hands covered in meat slime, etc) and the microwave is just beeping away. Yeah, I get it, I used you, now SHUT UP! There's no silent function. There's no changing when it beeps. It just beeps. There is an Eco button, but it is worthless. The Eco button will turn off the led clock, but as soon as you use the microwave again it will revert back to being on all the time. So, every time you use the microwave you need to remember to press the Eco button to turn the clock off. Why even have the function if it won't remember its previous state. There's one final thing. This microwave has a mechanical problem. If the door is pulled slightly the microwave will turn on. If the door is fully opened it turns off, and if released while pulling but before the door is opened it will turn off, but there is this slight area where if enough pressure is applied it will turn on without any buttons being pressed. This isn't an issue in and of itself, as normal use won't cause this issue to occur often, but if that sort of glitch slipped through the testing phase out to market then I wonder what other glitches will popup over time.

      Never had an overhead microwave so when I decided to upgrade my range I got this as well and very glad I did so, it looks fantastic! The unit operates just as expected! Read reviews that's it loud, not mine, sounds normal. Also the complaining that the buttons are to difficult to press, I'm sure glad I decided to purchase the unit because those claims don't hold up on the unit I have. Like the door handle, for years my old microwave had a button to press to open the door, this is much much nicer, opens and shuts very smoothly. Large enough inside to cook just about anything you want to cook. The control panel is really nice as well and like the over head lighting for the stove below. I installed the microwave myself, the instructions were simple and to the point, just make sure you get the template straight and level for the back wall bracket and it'll be a breeze. I vent the unit to the inside, you have to remove the blower motor and rotate it 90 degrees, not hard to do at all, remove a few screws and lift it out and sit it right back down! Also don't forget to install the carbon filter, simple as well, remove the three screws above the top front vent (where the air comes out), open the door, slide the vent to the left and pull it forward. Insert filter and reinstall in reverse order. Thanks for the awesome unit Best Buy!

      Poor Support after the sale

      Posted
      Buddy

      Low price, but average microwave, noisy ventilation fan, controls very crude. After less than 6 months the unit started overheating and then failed completely. Warranty folks said it had been damaged during shipping (even though no package damage), and they would fix, but probably not when it failed again (likely). Best Buy said too bad, it was outside their 'return window', so I am out of luck. The interior components of the microwave were so bent up the cooling fan was hitting the housing and it was overheating to the point the magnetron failed. Best Buy declined to look at pictures of the damage and then said they had no way of knowing that I didn't cause the damage! (see pics). I now have a microwave less than 6 months old that is junk. I know my situation is unique, but Best Buy didn't work to resolve at all-just quoted policy. Will never spend another dime at Best Buy after this.

      Ok, to me a microwave is a microwave. I've bought expensive models, and I've bought small countertop models from thrift stores. There are only minute differences, usually involving slightly longer cook times of the weaker models. Everything these days has a shortcut button for popcorn, potatoes, or reheating various meals. Everything has a turntable. Most have that metal rack in the middle that NOBODY uses. That being said, I really like this microwave. Simple. Does the job. Sure, it doesn't have a fancy inverter like some do (what this means is that a 50% power setting actually MEANS that the microwave cuts on and off... so it's 100% power at 50% of the time vs actually lowering the power to 50% like more expensive models) but it essentially works the same. The simple keypad interface makes using and programming the unit very intuitive (unlike a super expensive model my mother owns which has a dial, and I can't figure out how to even turn it on) Anyway, this is a great product. Don't get tricked into spending an extra hundred bucks for almost identical features. This unit will do everything you need it to. I'd definitely buy another one.

      Although the box was undamaged on arrival, and the microwave was packed well, there was a dent in the casing. I found this out when the handyman was at my house to install it, and at that point I didn't want to return it and schedule another 2 or 3 days to receive and install a new one. The dent was not visible after it was installed. The keypad buttons are hard to push, and I thought this would get better over time, when I got used to them. Months later, the buttons are still hard to push. It's pretty loud during cooking (louder than my old one, which is counterintuitive), and it does not have all of the functions that the specs claim. For example, I read that you can turn off the turntable. There are no instructions for this in the manual, and no apparent function on the microwave keypad to do this. The only good things I can say about this microwave is that it heats more quickly than the one at my work, and has the Eco Mode button, which turns off the display lights to save energy. I will probably end up switching it out some day when I have the time and money to do so.

      Great for making rental unit fancier

      I own a rental condo and I was looking for a replacement over the range microwave. This one fit perfectly in the budget and in the wow factor. There are a lot of tenants who value things like stainless steel and this particular unit has a lot of the surface covered in stainless steel (relatively), so it fit what I was looking for. The assembly is pretty much on par with most OTR microwaves. Typical/easy modification for internal/external ventilation. Good templates for marking holes in the cabinets. Went together pretty easy. Just one horizontal bracket on the wall and two screws through the top of unit (into the bottom of the overhead cabinet) was how I mounted mine. I believe it comes with multiple templates for multiple installation options. The power cord is on the top of the unit to the right of the center (as you face the unit when it's installed). For this price it's a no brainer - if you're looking for a slight upgrade to your rental unit.

      Not a lot of features

      This was an emergency purchase as our old microwave died on us and we needed a replacement quickly. It looks nice and it seems to work just fine. Installation was easy amd took less than 15 minutes. The only thing is that it lacks features our 17 year old microwave had. There is no quick cook option where all you have to do is press one number and it cooks for that number's duration in minutes automatically. Also, you have to manually stop the alarm when the timer goes off. Our old one would stop when the door was opened. In addition, the fan goes off automatically when you cook on the stovetop underneath it and you can't turn it off until the temperature below it goes down, so that's annoying. We may replace it with a better model down the road, but for now it does it's job with no major issues.

      The first one I received was dented badly after I waited a week for shipping. The second one was ok after waiting another week to receive. I had to buy a small microwave so the family could get through another week without a microwave. It works ok, but just as other reviews mentioned the touch pad is not very sensitive and requires a little more pressure to use. You are unable to use the timer and microwave at the same time. You also have to press start every time unlike some microwaves when the +30 seconds or quick minute buttons activate cooking immediately. Installation was pretty straight forward. I didn't expect too much given the price, but those things would be pretty easy to improve I would think from a manufacturing perspective. Overall it does the job and looks decent with my other Samsung appliances.
