The Samsung SMH1927[S] is part of the microwave oven
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, over-the-range microwave oven
models like the SMH1927[S] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
This reflects how evenly a model reheated a dish of cold mashed potatoes.
This is based on how well the automatic-defrost program defrosted one pound of frozen ground chuck.
Speed of heating:
This score is based on the temperature rise of water heated in the microwave.

Watts This is the manufacturer's figure of the microwave power output. In general, the more watts an oven offers, the greater its cooking power-and the faster your food will be cooked. That said, differences in claimed wattage of 100 watts or less are unlikely to result in significant differences in performance.
Detailed prompts Display offers instructions to guide you through the cooking process.
Convection mode A few microwaves include a convection oven feature, which has a heating element and a fan that distributes heat. In convection mode, you can set the oven temperature as you would in a traditional oven to bake or roast items.
Sensor Controls the cooking and reheating time automatically. It shuts off an oven when it determines (usually by sensing steam) that food is hot enough.
Stainless/SS-look option Stainless-steel is stylish, but it shows fingerprints. Another option: a vinyl-covered metal finish that gives you a stainless-steel look but resists smudging.
I bought two of these microwaves as a matched pair. Each has broken and needed very expensive repairs. The first break was on the catch of the door latch when it was just over 1 year old. Turns out the plastic part was really fragile. Research and you'll find many complaints. Next the Touchpad on the SECOND microwave went bad, giving a 5E error. Again, research and you'll find this is a recurrent problem. One failure might be the luck of the draw, but TWO on separate units indicates a real reliability problem. Today the water dispenser on my new Samsung refrigerator stopped working. Still under warranty, but I would steer away from Samsung until they work out their quality issues.

Defective Key Pad
If you check the internet you will see that this microwave has terrible reliability problems. I have owned it for two years and it has had 2 major services under warranty replacing just about every major component. Now the key pad has gone bad -- it's the SE error code -- and it's too late. Nothing to do but throw it out and try again. Stay away from Samsung.
