Summary: Cheaply made. I bought this from a local Appliance Co. here in town. The price was around $350 (about $100.00 more than other models with comparable features). I paid the price because it had a sleek look and somewhat smaller top-to-bottom dimension. The clock display is very old-school cheap.
I liked the first one so much I purchased this one ...

Summary: This is my second one. I liked the first one so much I purchased this one for another place. Only problem is that the plate inside was scored. Called Sharp company who sent me another. This one is scored as well. There is something wrong with the manufacturing of the plate.
Summary: 2 years, no issues. Works great! And the latch is not deformed, melted or broken. I installed myself and had no problems. I've installed an OTR microwave 3 times in my life and none of them are easy, but this one is no more difficult than any of the others.
Summary: Gave it 5 stars because I already had one and needed to get another. First one was great so the easiest replacement made sense to get the same model and keep the same bracket. Unfortunately UPS (as per usual) mishandled it so badly the styrofoam protection was crushed and the metal sides were...
Summary: "We owned a sharp 1505 that was hit by electric surge. We needed to replace it with a like product. We chose the 1514 due to brackets being the same. We were well pleased with the new product. We recieved the ordeer a day ahead of time. The price was right."
Summary: This microwave is dangerous. A small plastic switch in the bottom door closure monitors the on/off function. In our case, this switch "malfunctioned," and the microwave turned ON when the door was opened. Very scary that a 1000W microwave's safety is controlled by a small plastic piece.
Summary: Avoid this product. The pushbutton melted after only a month of regular use. When the technician came to repair it, he said that he saw this problem frequently with this design. He said that units with a handle do not have this problem. Despite being careful, it has happened again.
