Summary: Kind of weak as a microwave, the tray is a weird speckled-metal like a canning pot and the microwave exterior finish looks like gray spraypaint not stainless steel. The up and down viewing angle for the LCD is so narrow that you have to be almost dead in line with it to read it, I have to crouch down to use this microwave every time. I'd say this thing is great if you have extremely limited space and need all of the different functionality (maybe on a live in boat?).
It does actually do most everything, but eh...not perfectly.

Summary: It's very nice to have a convection oven and toaster right in the microwave oven, but there are some caveats: 1. The microwave is wimpy. 900 watts as opposed to the usual 1200-1400 watts. You will have to ad about 20-25 percent cooking time. Especially when following recommendations on packaged microwaveable food. A medium to large baked potato takes 10 minutes rather than 7 or 8. 2. The convection temp is 25-35 degrees below what my oven thermometer registers.
Summary: Bought this in Feb 2006 after doing a lot of research. There was a deal going then and I got it for just 206. The unit is pretty compact and looks nice. I have a small kitchen so counter space is at a premium, and I like that the oven is versatile. For the convection part, I like the pizza settings and use them for just about everything.
