Summary: DO NOT BUY FROM THESE PEOPLE. while the microwave might be great, the one I received from this vendor, 123, broke within one month -- just completely FRIED with smoke and FIRE...and they refuse to give me another microwave or a refund.
Summary: I bought a Sharp Microwave of the same series about three years ago. It lasted a little over a year, just outside the warranty time, and then began to stop midway; then almost immediately. Deciding it was just a fluke, I stupidly bought another Sharp.
Summary: I find this model difficult to use. I was accustomed to a model with sensor cooking and other. easier to use features. I am still learning to adjust to this model and have to look up the more difficult timer instructions each time. I also have to use a flashlight to see the the panel of options.
Summary: This is my 2nd Sharp Microwave Oven of exactly the same size and power. The old one lasted 15 years and I finally got tired of looking at it and donated it to Good Will, but it was still operating perfectly.
Summary: Bought this from Sears 2 years ago and it worked fine. Then all of a sudden, the keypad would press buttons on its own. It did it so often that I just left the microwave unplugged and plugged it in whenever I needed to use it.
