An excelent microwave with very even heathing
Member Name: iaidoka22
Advantages: Even heating, solid build, intuitive controls
Disadvantages: Frustrating grill, needs frequent cleaning
I bought this after moving out of university accommodation, and at the time a microwave was my only access to hot food. So I was relieved when this turned out to be really good! The first feature that stands out is how evenly this heats food - there are no noticeably hot or cold spots, and you can normally skip the half-way stirring. The controls are intuitive, and it can be started - and adjusted while cooking - with one button.
The built in grill is functional, but much less practical to use. Apart from anything else, it's tiny! This definitely isn't a replacement for a real grill. The heating elements are behind a metal grill, that makes them difficult to get to to clean. This can happen just from the splatter of microwaved food - even if you don't use the grill feature! So be preprepared to clean this regularly.
It's solidly build - I've had mine for several years, and the door hinges are latches are still just as tight as when I got it. The guide rail for the rotating plate snapped at one point, but Samsung sent me a free replacement immediately.
Summary: Generally excellent, but if you don't *need* the grill, consider getting the version without it
