Summary: I purchased my first one (same model) in White 20yrs ago. The turntable died when I cooked a Turkey in it. (my mistake) too much weight .. I purchased my second one 5 yrs ago and no problems. Love the baked enamel turntable. Easy to clean.. as are the Stainless steel walls. You can nuke your potatoe if you are in a hurry and then change to bake for 12 minutes to crisp up the shell.
Summary: We purchased a Sharp R930CS and a 27" installation kit back in 2001 when we installed our kitchen cabinets, and the microwave has been used extensively since then. There are a bunch of reviews here talking about how well this unit cooks, so I won't repeat any of that except to say that we have really loved this unit since we got it, and consider it one of the best purchases we have ever made.
Summary: I made this purchased to replaced my built-in Whirlpool microwave. It operates just fine in less than 1 year, lucky it was still under warranty, so the HV DIODE (heating unit got replaced). Now, 3 years later, the piece of junk stoping heating up. This a expensive unit, it should not break down in less than 5 years... To replace the same unit that is no longer under warranty, it would cost about $150. I decided to go out and buy a microwave instead for under $150.
Summary: I got this oven built into the cabinets of my kitchen. The unit was manufactured feb 2013, bought july 2013 and by January 2014 stopped working. Contacting Sharp has been a very disappointing experience, similar to other reviewers: They've referred me to a "local" service shop, the ones they recommend do not service at home. This means disassembling the kitchen panels and carry the heavy unit to their center if I want to have it serviced under warranty.
Summary: We bought this same model twelve years ago along with the trim kit for a built-in installation in a cabinet above our main oven. After 12 years of use, the magnetron recently died. It is just amazing that we were able to get exactly the same model after all those years and were able to use the old trim kit saving about $100.00. Apparently Sharp found the model to be a winner and stuck with it. I agree.
