Summary: I have to say this microwave is fantastic. Every other one I've had would either leave cold spots in food or it would burn the outer edges. I don't find it any louder than the other microwaves I've had. For some who don't like the length of the beeps when food is done, I usually just add a few seconds and open the door before it's done. I wish the control pad didn't beep with each press but for how great it cooks I don't have that big of a problem with it.
Summary: As others have stated, the door is a problem. After owning this about 6 months, it became nearly impossible to shut without slamming it very hard. That seems odd for any microwave I have ever owned. I wanted to lubricate the plastic latch, but not with a petroleum based product. I finally opted for graphite. That worked for a while but is getting hard to close again.
Summary: It is really loud. Prior to purchasing it, I saw where some asked if it seemed loud when running. Some answered yes and some no. Well it is definitely loud. For example, I would be hesistant to use it at night for fear of disrupting my sleeping/resting family. Otherwise all else seems fine. I'll update on the performance at a later time.
Summary: We bought the microwave in mid-September. It died two days ago. I liked it while it worked but for the money, it should have lasted several years. I bought this brand because this one replaced the Panasonic microwave that we had for three years. It was a bit smaller than the previous one so it didn't hold all my glass pans but I was fine with that.
Summary: This microwave works just fine as I would expect any Panasonic product to do. There are a few minor things that bother me though. 1. When the door is opened the interior light does not go on, which means I must turn on the kitchen lights to see what I am doing if it's not daylight yet. 2. When it is finished cooking, it beeps five times and there is no way to stop it, even by opening the door. 3.
Summary: I've had this for over a year and it works fine, no problems at all. But if i could do it over i would buy something simpler. The "sensor reheat" function always makes things way too hot or occasionally too cold. Same with the automatic cooking functions. I don't use any of the fancy stuff at all any more. But that's just me.
Summary: This microwave is so strong! My husband and I received it as a wedding gift, and we're so impressed. This microwave cooks food so much faster than any microwave I've ever used. The quick minute function is usually all I use, but the sensor reheat is awesome. I use it all the time to reheat food and the food always comes out perfectly heated. The space inside is big with the glass plate coming all the way to the door. Highly recommend. Great microwave.
