Rated 1 out of 5 by smc TOO DEEP
I was really disappointed by the size of this microwave. It stuck out 3-4 inches beyond the upper cabinets. It's appearance is clunky. I hate that it has buttons for mac and cheese and chicken nuggets -- something so trashy about that (yes that is what I feed my kids but I don't need to advertise it on my kitchen appliances. I was trying to do an economical but current style -- with the look of built-in but without actually doing built-in appliances and it has worked out with the availability of counter-depth fridges and some custom carpentry by my husband, BUT this microwave ruined the whole look. Yuck!
The bottom line -- it's much too big, much too DEEP and it's not an oven/microwave, so why?? I'm not roasting a turkey -- I'm heating leftovers. I bought it because I wanted a strong fan but didn't think I'd be sacrificing style. I read tons of reviews but no one mentioned this so I felt I MUST write a review (even though I never do). I've had OTRs in my old kitchen twice and don't recall this -- have the sizes increased in recent years?? I didn't pay close enough attention to the dimensions when shopping because I expected OTR design would make sense with home much of the range it covers and would not stick out beyond upper cabinets -- seems obvious! The door is SO deep too so you can't even customize with some sleek built-in looking carpentry around it because the door wouldn't be able to open if you did. This microwave/fan might work great -- I don't know -- haven't used it yet -- this review is just about it's appearance and size. I'm sad and mad!

Rated 4 out of 5 by BKing Very Good Product, but...
This microwave is a very good addition to our kitchen ensample. However, close to a year of ownership the MW now hums louder than normal. Concerning.

We purchased this product to go with our new LG Gas Double Oven Range. So far, I am pleased with the product.

I was disappointed with this microwave. It is cheaply built, e.g., I scratched the finish with my fingernail, the door scrapes when opened or closed and the turntable makes a squeaking noise when in use.
In addition, the timer alarm is not very loud and sounds for only a few seconds.
I have many other LG products, which are great, but this is not one of them.

Love this microwave. The reheat and cook sensor features are excellent. The exhaust fan is so quiet you can actually hold a conversation while cooking with it on turbo.
A few days after we purchased it the feature that drew us to it, the range hood extension broke. It no longer locks in the retracted position. A repairman was here and after calling LG on a number not available to customers he found there is the equivalent of a recall and redesigned parts will have to be installed. So now we wait for the parts to arrive and the repairman to reschedule. Not good for a one month old microwave.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lucky 48 So far this product meets my expectations
I purchased this product through Home Depot. The installation service was excellent! Using this product has been a breeze. I do wish the lights on the bottom were brighter. I love the quietness of the product, especially the over the oven vent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GolsenLV Great features!
We love the extending vent for use over the front burners. I also like the soften butter and keep warm features having different levels within the feature. Defrost beeps and tells you to turn the item over. Overall, this oven is well worth the investment and has made our life a lot easier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by applemob Easy to use with great features
This is the best microwave I've ever owned. I like that the controls are along the bottom, so I don't have to reach across the burners of the stove. It heats food much more quickly and evenly than my last microwave.
