Summary: This microwave is nearly perfect. It is a good medium-large size, looks nice and does not show excessive fingerprints. The controls are easy and useful and it performs well.
The only thing that really annoys the heck out of me is that the clock/time display is very difficult to read, particularly from an angle or a distance. There is no contrast. You really have to be looking straight on, up close, to read it.
Summary: Panasonic finally died (after 8 years!!) but I couldn't find another to replace it so my criteria being the dimensions of the old, I chose this Sharp model. It works well, but the old Panasonic had more preset buttons (popcorn, beverage, ... etc) which we used pretty extensively. It still reheats my coffee well, but it takes longer than our previous model in cooking sweet potatoes.
Summary: I usually love Sharp - which is why I purchased this microwave for my office. Very nice looking, nice features, nice buttons.
The problem is that it broke within a year. It has been making a screeching and squealing sound when trying to heat food.
Granted we do use it every day because it is in our office, but I hoped it would last at least a year!
Summary: This is a great mid-size microwave oven. Does it all. Easy to use and easy to clean plus looks great. Have not had a problem or regret with this. SHARP is one of the best brands in microwave ovens.
