  • Samsung Gets Over the Stove Microwaves Right

    Mar 24, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Modern styling, great customer service, roomy and easy to use.
    Cons: Long term performance remains to be proven.

    Summary: This Samsung microwave is powerful, attractive, and roomy, with some of the best customer service we’ve seen in a long time. Contrary to other reviews, we have had nearly perfect experience with our Samsung over-the-stove microwave. The design is ... read more

  • Samsung SMH7178 Microwave Oven- Negative experience

    Feb 28, 2009 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: The stainless steel exterior looks nice.
    Cons: Samsung won't correct a known issue...or offer service on a known issue. That's unfortunate.

    Summary: I bought this appliance in November 2006. In December 2006, the fan unit started working only intermitantly and because the fan didn't work, the unit's interior would heat up and trip a thermostat and shut the unit down. Samsung came out, replaced the ... read more

  • Terrible Product DO NOT BUY

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks Good
    Cons: Unreliable and Poor Service

    Summary: Do not buy this Microwave. I had this Microwave less than a year and it broke down twice. The first time we had trouble finding a Samsung rep to fix it and we live only 20 miles from Boston. Samsung gave us a list of repair shops but none of them would ... read more

    Pros: I have Lowes as my back up.
    Cons: I also have a small counter top microwave I have had for 5 years.

    Summary: My 1st Samsung was bought in 05 within a year it was sparking and had &#^$%**$&^ symbols on the display board. Then they could not find a repair person in my area. Weeks later they finally found someone and made an appointment to come and make the ... read more

    Aug 11, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Quiet and smooth....at first Louver that covers the vent grille
    Cons: obviously not well made, parts not readily available

    Summary: We bought this oven 3 months ago and I loved it....at first. It was quiet, nice looking, and I liked thet the top vent had a louver that only opened when it was in use. One less thing to clean. Then, about a month ago, the fan started being noisy, ... read more

    Pros: NONE
    Cons: EVERYTHING

    Summary: This is the worst microwave I have ever owned. I too purchased this brand and model based on recommendation from Consumer Reports. The first one didn’t work at all and like others the second one started dying a slow death after minimal use of 1 year. ... read more

    Pros: Nice looking
    Cons: Didn't work. Funny motorized door.

    Summary: I got this unit based on a "best buy" recommendation from Consumer Reports. It is a very nice looking unit. When I got it all installed, I found that it made a very loud noise (like a welding torch)when cooking dry materials like popcorn. You could ... read more

  • A good microwave, at a good price

    Rated Show
    Pros: Stylish. Easy to clean. Affordable.
    Cons: Very few. You actually have to read the manual, but thats being VERY picky.

    Summary: It is quite unfortunate that 1 person was allowed to give this microwave a bad name by posting 5 or 6 separate reviews with the same rant/rave. I've had my samsung for over a year now and it has proven itself time again. I enjoy the shelf for ... read more

  • The worst microwave ever

    Mar 6, 2007 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: None
    Cons: Most of their microwaves are definitely defective and they do not want to recognize it.

    Summary: The microwave worked for 3 months, than would shut off after 10-20 seconds and would die all together, then after about half an hour it would come back and the vent stopped working. Samsung didn't have any close technicians that would come out to fix the ... read more

    Cons: Please see above rant.

    Pros: Worked great for one year.
    Cons: Waste of money.

    Summary: This microwave worked great for about a year. Just after the one year warranty expired, so did the microwave. It stopped making noise while cooking and began to smoke. Samsung's response: It's not under warranty. ... read more

    Pros: I don't know any pros since I could not get the unit to work.
    Cons: Samsung Co.: Poor quality control program. Best Buy Raleigh NC: Poor customer service.

    Summary: Purchased the product and brought it home, plugged it in and it didn't work but was able to set the clock. Then I noticed a small tag on the end of the box that the microwave had a bad electronic panel. Best Buy put this defective unit back into stock. ... read more

    Pros: Large and well built to a degree.
    Cons: Broke after under a year of minimal use.
