Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Quality
Absolutely adore my new microwave. I was very glad to find LG made a microwave the same size as my old one. Great product, better than advertised! The only thing I would add is a button to light the control panel when in use. I really like the energy efficient option when not in use, but it is difficult to see if you are up and do not want to turn on a light.
The unit itself is very good looking and it is very easy to use. I wish it had a timer feature on it aside from when the unit is running. Given that it is a built in the light on the underside of it could be a bit brighter and unfortunately, the display in the store was not hooked up so that we could see that but otherwise I love my microwave.
I like everything on the microwave except there is no timer. If I am cooking two things on the stove with my old microwave I could set a timer on it for one thing and the timer on the microwave for the other. Since there is no timer I can not. Next time I will double check that all the other microwaves I looked at did have it.
It has served me well so far. I miss the kitchen timer that my last oven had and I wish the door was a little less noisy when closing it. However, as far as what it is designed to do, it is doing the job well at a good price.
Size was the most important feature when we bought and LG had a good rating. But started having problems with the touch pad, all the bottom row #'s and auto reheat don't work and we had it less than 18 months! Would cost us more for a service call than what we paid for it. I've learned to work around the problem, but when it gets worse, we'll replace, not sure it will ever be an LG again.

"Not satisfied with this model"
PostedApril 29, 2015
Pros: poor design
This product does not satisfy my needs. My wife needs a timer in the kitchen and nearly ALL microwaves have one built into it. This one does not have this feature! The product is very light weight and sounds very loud and very cheap when closing. My vent has 2 speeds of course only one seems to work! I removed the wire rack as no big dish fits with the rack inside.
Life IS GOOD ONLY FOR THE OWNER OF THIS BRAND AND PRODUCTS!
Pros: Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality
We recently purchased a 30 year old home we knew we needed new appliances ... LG has a great customer rating so we went with a suite purchase. We wanted a microwave that fit full sized plates and fit into the existing space and vent our new LG gas range This microwave oven was what we needed. The suite of new Stainless Steel LG appliances looksgreat!
I like the looks of it, and it does what it says. Some of the features are lack lusting. No timer is an issue with me, next time I will make sure I get one. The auto melt, soften are not that easy. Will need directions in front of you until you get use to it. Same with the reheat. You will need to look at the times in the manual to make sure you use the right one. Otherwise, it is fine.
I purchased the microwave and range at the same time. Very happy with the sleek, stream-lined design of the LG products. Very user friendly with nice features. I did not see them plugged in at the store so didn't realize the digital displays were in different colors. Blue and Green. Also, the vent on the microwave vent directly up towards the cabinets and ceiling. This may cause a build up off dust/grease on my cabinets. It should be vented at more of an angle.
I replaced an old under counter microwave a few months ago with the LG LMV1683ST model. I liked the looks of it in the store. It gave the appearance of a well made product. Once installed, I have found it to meet my needs. It allows for a quick and easy method to set up a program or change clock time. It has enough power to provide a fast heating / cooking time.
I was disappointed to discover that this unit does not feature a kitchen timer function. Some other functions were slightly enhanced. Overall very happy with this unit.
