Summary: Purchased this unit approximately one and a half years ago. About 2 months ago we had to take it in to have it serviced, of course it was no longer in warranty, missed it by about 4 months. Ok, not the end of the world, the part was a little over $5 dollars and labor was $45.00. Four days ago the unit quits working again, this time it's the board which will set us back by $245. Of course Sharp will not stand behind their products.
Summary: Purchased another Sharp micro/convection over after my 30 year old one finally died. NOW no one will help with a serious problem with the convection part of the one we just received last week. The person and place it came from said they would know accept a return and Sharp gave me only two places to have it repaired, both miles away from my small town.
Summary: A friend gave me a convection oven ( a Sharp) , she moved and had no place for it. I love it. Great for microwave or convection and the mix that uses both. When the gift oven died , I used it for two years, it was old when I got it, I bought the replacement. Super pleased. Beat Lowe's by $150 and it got to my home before it would have gotten to my local Lowe's. This time I got the manual and the nice cook book.
Summary: Less than 6 months old, purchased at Home Depot. SHARP just continually gives the run around. The convection portion is not working, the microwave portion is slower than sh _ _. Look for something better, because you will not be happy with this unit or the customer service from SHARP.
Summary: It's exactly like my previous Sharp. with the exception of the finish. My other one was white and this one is stainless steel and because of the finish it looks smaller. The black background on the control panel makes it a little hard to read and if it wasn't for the fact that it's the same as the previous machine it would make it harder to get used to. I can get a fair sized cake pan and pizza pan in it. Love the convection feature.
When you find a good one, stay with it: Second R-930 after sixteen years.

Summary: Sixteen years ago, to gain storage and work space, I gutted my original kitchen, notably a huge, ugly combination range, in faith a microwave/convection unit and cooktop could suffice, at least for a bachelor. Research found Sharp R-930CS to be most fully-featured, capacious choice. A modest 900 watts might give pause to those who judge cars by horsepower, but I haven't figured the practical implications of wattage.
