Summary: I bought this microwave one and a half years ago for about $125. Worked great until it started shorting out and I just received the H97 error, which means it's trash and not worth fixing. I paid $30 for a cheap microwave before this one and it lasted me six years. I have a Panasonic plasma TV that's still running strong since 2008 but this microwave was a total waste of money. Pretty sad that Panasonic makes such a unreliable product since I expected better from them.
Summary: This microwave is the best. It does EXACTLY what it claims to do and then some. I don't understand ANY of the negative reviews others have given this product as it truly deserves nothing but raves. It may be a bit ( and I mean a SMALL bit) on the loud side but certainly is nothing to deter anyone from purchasing it. The light does not go on when you open the door, but come on, truthfully who needs that?
Summary: After four months of use, developed a short circuit which tripped the circuit breaker whenever we turned it on. Under warranty, but the only authorized Panasonic service center in Nashville offers only in-home service, which costs $60. Not worth it, given the initial purchase price, especially since we don't know whether they will actually be able to fix it. AVOID!
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.
