Summary: I like the size and options on this microwave however there was a screw missing on the magnetron so the unit made a vibrating noise and I had to call service as soon as it was opened. The one thing that annoys me is on the auto defrost, the unit stops for you to turn the food several times. Other microwaves I've had only stopped once midway. I also wish you could cook and have the timer going at the same time.
Summary: This microwave looks good and works well. When you set it on a lower power setting it does not cycle the magnetron or at least you cannot hear it cycle. One thing I thought was wierd is that the one I got was manufactured in March 2009, thats almost 3 year old! It cooks food great compared to my older whirlpool because food comes out with uniform heat, no hot and cold areas everything is consistent without drying.
