Summary: Great microwave if you don't have a traditional space for a microwave above the stove. It's a bit pricey, but a lot cheaper then ripping apart my cabinets to try to build a space for it above the stove.
Summary: When we saw this unit on display, it was at the top of a counter-depth island. Ours is installed 8" below the top of the counter (Poor Aristokraft cabinet design) and you have to bend down to see controls. There is no minute plus or instant reheat.
Summary: Had this microwave for 2 years and the magnatron (cooking component) burned up and literally burned a hole through the entire unit. It's unrepairable. Still being under warranty, I contacted Sharp who told me that they would replace the unit if I pay $499. You've got to be kidding me!
Summary: We really enjoyed using this microwave while it lasted; however, after 2 1/2 years of use it just stopped working one day. We chose this drawer-type microwave because we wanted to "hide" our microwave in our island for aesthetic purposes, and for this reason, were willing to pay more for it.
Motor burned and unit began smoking for a 3-minute use

Summary: I purchased this unit 2 months ago. This morning we had the microwave on high for about 3 minutes before the house started filling with smoke and the motor was making a horrible noise and it smelled like the motor was burning.
Summary: After about 10 uses...yes, 10 uses, the microwave heating element broke. It was under warranty but this product is horrible. all looks, no performance. Filing a BBB complaint and one with Sharp as well. $1K is too much for this bag of magic beans.
