Summary: I bought this to use at work where size and speed are my two main focuses. 1100 watts is only 100 more than most other microwaves of comparable size (1.0 cu ft). I've owned other sharp models and I've never had a complain. Taken care should last 10yrs or so. I like how it looks in my office. Cooks food thoroughly slightly faster than other brands. Overall it was a good buy. Its wide and not too tall which fits my space situation.
I have an old sharp microwave that is 20 yrs old that works better than the new one

Summary: Doesnt seem to warm things properly and shuts off while heating items more than five minutes. Wait a couple minutes and it comes back on and then does the same thing and shuts off. Very discouraging for a microwave that costs in excess of 135.00. I have an old sharp microwave that is 20 yrs old that works better than the new one. Good thing I didnt throw it away. Disgusted!!!
Summary: The only reason I returned this item is because the interior light does not come on unless the unit is cooking. You need to be able to see the progress of the food cooking when you open the door. I also don't know how you clean it without an interior light - maybe a flashlight? Otherwise, this is exactly the microwave we needed and wanted. Too bad Sharp can't figure out a way to keep it's light bulb on.
Pros: Good Looking, Nice Cooking Features, Perfect size
Cons: No Interior Light Unless, No Lgt When Door Is Open, Unit Is Running
