I'm not one to write any reviews. But I felt the need to give my opinion. The plastics that LG use, are not high grade, that being said I've replaced two handles in a period of two years. Which took several months to receive in the mail. Not a standard item in stock.
The overall performance and features, are good.
The quality of plastics, are very poor.

The reason I bought this model is because you can microwave, cook in the convection mode or a combination of both and it will brown food. It gives you the advantage of a double oven. I am very pleased with my purchase from Best Buy.

First off, my intial opinion of quality is not to good. Many screw holes on back were missing screws and several that were in were stripped. Unit was bent on back corner (dropped) and with the very good and undamaged packaging, it had to happen at the factory.
Choosing the roof exhaust option, the duct adapter did not fit the top of the microwave very good and there were holes that would allow oven exhaust to escape into the kitchen cabinet. I sealed with foil tape .
The microwave looks very nice and does a great job. The wife cooked a batch of cookies to start with using the convection feature, and she loves it. The exhaust fan has 5 speeds and on high it is loud, but moves a great deal of air.
Now that it is up and running we really like it, but LG needs alittle attention to the quality control on this one.

I loved the look and the fact this was a combo microwave/convection oven...and I'm happy with the way it heats/cooks/defrosts. The only bad thing is the fan is really loud for the first 5-10 seconds. I called and had an appliance service person (per the LG manual) come to my home but he told me there was nothing he could do to reduce the loudness of the microwave's fan. He offered to change a few of the parts but said it might not make any difference in the loudness of the fan; in fact it might make it worse....I decided not to touch it. I'm not sure I would have purchased this model if I had known about the noise issue.
