Summary: This has been the best microwave ever. I bought it in 2006 and it is now 2015. only now am I having problems and that is with a worn out start button.The unit still works great. Sometimes the button works sometimes not but still the minute plus does. I want another one just like it.
Summary: I've used this microwave since January 2007 (3 years and counting) and it has served me well. For my simple purposes of re-heating leftovers or mugs of hot soy milk, this sharp is more than sufficient and 99% of my heating needs are fulfilled with times of less than 2.5 minutes.
Summary: I have always been very pleased and trusted Sharp brands, would not have bought any other brand, but, I have had this microwave for about 3 months and one morning it made this roaring sound and it did not heat my coffee. I tried it again and it did the same thing.
Summary: one thing that bothers me about this microwave oven is the door latch. It seems to be a bit unstable and i am wondering how long it will last. Time will tell. I guess they do not make things like they uses to
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.
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.
Summary: I bought this microwave to replace one at work that suddenly quit working. I needed one that was full size and at least 1000 watts. This microwave is great. It has multiple presets for defrost, reheat and cook, works flawlessly and looks sleek. I highly recommend it.
Summary: Well this microwave looked nice, and heated food quickly. The settings for specific foods were way too complicated, so I never used them. Unfortunately, it stopped working within two months. It worked just fine, no signs of problems, up until one day, it just didn't heat anything anymore.
