Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike O. Great Product
The LG LMV1683ST microwave, completed our kitchen revamp (bought a competitors dishwasher due to LG wanting an arm, leg, and first born for theirs).
However this is likely one of the best microwaves around in it's price range. It was easy to install and the features make it easy to use. Here's the kicker... it actually does what it says it will do when you program it.
No more burnt popcorn or unheated vegetables.
The only issue I have is a concern about the "plasticky" and cheap sound it makes when you close the door. But hey, no fears of radon, or alien attacks.
Seriously though, aside from the door thing, I am quite pleased overall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OldSalt Great value, great features
This oven has performed very well. We really like the add and subtract 10 second feature. A drawback is that the exhaust fan runs when the oven is operated and that increases the noise level. We asked an appliance salesman who has one at home and he said he couldn't turn his off either. Other than for that very minor beef, it's a great product.

This microwave works really great. It defrosts food really well and reheats food without leaving and cold spots. I definitely recommend this product to anyone who needs a new microwave. I especially like the energy save button. This microwave was also a great value compared to the other ones I looked at. I also like it's sleek design.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dave470 A Very Basic Microwave
This is truly an entry level microwave with only the most basic features.
First, know that this microwave is extremely loud when in operation. I have yet to hear another microwave this loud. We are getting used to it but were really surprised at how loud it is.
Cook times are a bit longer than the older microwave we replaced but this is not a big deal.
What we miss is that this model has no digital countdown timer. You would think this would have been standard as it really is one of the most basic features found in microwaves over the past 20 years.
Another minor issue is that you only have one brightness setting on the oven lamp but this is probably to be expected on a basic model like this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cbb1430 Great appliance, but LOUD
I love everything about this microwave except the noise. It is LOUD. But after living with an ineffectual vent system on my last microwave, I'm going to live with the noise. Those that need a gauge of the loudness? It makes conversation in the kitchen difficult.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DaveS Quite pleased
We have had the microwave for about a month. It does a nice job heating things. The exhaust fan is probably not as quiet as some, but does a nice job and is reasonably quiet for the price. The light for the stove top could be a little brighter, but is certainly adequate. Overall, we are pleased with the quality and value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tor277 Great microwave at a great price
I love this microwave. It is so simple to use. Some microwaves have you press what seems like 100 different buttons to melt butter. Not this one! I really like the middle rack for more convenience when using it. Cleaning it is never a hassle. I have never had any kind of issue using this microwave. It's energy saving mode also makes it a great "green" product. The only negative thing I would say about this is the volume of the exhaust fan when it's on high. It is loud but it's not too loud that it cancels out all the great features this microwave provides. And, it looks really nice!

This microwave heats items very quickly. It has all the 'necessary' features including popcorn and 30 second timer. It is a very nice looking unit and installed very quickly. Not sure about longevity as we have had it for only 3 months but so far everything is excellent.
