Summary: This product is extremely easy to use, looks great in the kitchen and heats up your food quickly. I don't do anything besides heating up my food in this microwave, but whenever I do my food comes out piping hot in very little time. Having the buttons behind the door is convenient as well, since I find myself only using the minute express button on the front door. A definite recommend for anyone who has a busy lifestyle.
Summary: figures and characters on the front panel are not easy to recognized, due to their color are not too bright, or the color contrast to their surrounding is not too obvious. vivid color for those figures and characters are suggested.
Summary: I too spent a lot of time researching microwaves before I decided on this one. It was very discouraging to read all the negative reviews. Particularly the ones regarding the quality and stability of the parts. I too owned a Sharp for 18 years with no repairs. My hope is this one will last half as long. It is certainly more attractive and modern compared to the old one.
Summary: I bought this microwave about a month ago, and so far it has been a great buy. I had a Sharp before that conked out and I wanted another Sharp to replace it. This one has exceeded my expectations. It looks good, and is very easy to use. I haven't had to consult the manual yet.
Summary: okay so I got this for about 4/5 months now and I have to say (like always) Sharp did a good job on this one, My mom has had a sharp from 1983 and it worked for over 25 years (with a few repairs on cheap things) so that's what made me go with there brand. Now I don't think its loud at all I really think its quite for the most part and it cooks everything fast (1200W why wouldn't it) my only issue is and when I saw it here I didn't think it would be as big of a pain that...
Summary: I owned Sharp appliances previously so I was aware of their quality. So when my Sharp microwave oven ceased to function after eight years, I wanted to purchase another Sharp microwave oven. I found this model on the Amazon.com website. The price was affordable and I did not have to pay for shipping. Amazingly, the microwave oven's point of origin was in Wisconsin and although I live in Texas, the microwave oven arrived in two days!
Summary: I bought this microwave about a year and a half ago. Mostly, we've been satisfied with its performance (though it's not very good with defrosting). Recently however, the spring-loaded latch that keeps the door closed simply stopped working. This means the door can't close properly, and (hence) it means the microwave is not useable. (We don't slam the door or anything like that. We don't even use the microwave often. This was the result of normal use.
Summary: Order this item (Sharp R-315JS) from Premier Appliance on 2-26-2010. Received email: order cancelled by merchant on 3-09-2010. Cannot rate this item for I never seen it. Vote 4 star since I don't want to jeopardize other ratings. Two star for the merchant: should not let the customer waiting two weeks before sending cancelation notice. We ended up buying a Kenmore "true-cook" at Sears because my wife does not want to wait anymore.
Summary: This is a large microwave for under $100.It is very easy to set up and program.I have had no problem with it and am very happy about my choice.The only complaint might be it is that it takes up a lot of space.
