We bought this microwave to replace a 15-year old GE that finally gave out. This model appeared to be an updated version of our old one, adding a turntable. We don't do any real cooking in it and didn't need anything fancy, and this model fit the bill. The only thing we don't like is that the timer beeper doesn't shut off until you press the Cancel button. Otherwise, it's quiet and plenty powerful for our everyday needs.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jimmy15 GE Over Range Microwave
I thoroughly enjoy my new over the range microwave. The buttons are easy to press. Many different options for cooking or reheating.
I like there are 2 lights under the microwave bit wish they were LED lights instead of incandescent lights. This is why I give the microwave only 4 stars.
Installation was fairly easy and with putting in a new electrical outlet it took around 1 hour to install.
The paper template was a little misleading and instructions were not the best, but I figured it out after a few tries.

We were replacing an older GE over-range microwave and chose this one mainly because it was a drop-in replacement. It's working just fine and does everything you would expect from a microwave.
I was especially impressed, however, with the delivery service from Home Depot. Delivery was right on time and the delivery team hauled the oven up two flights of stairs, then helped me unpack and inspect the unit to make sure there was no damage. They even took away the box and packing material! Only wish that all other retailers could take a lesson from Home Depot!

I was looking for a microwave to replace the 21 year old GE over-the-range that recently died. I needed a fairly small model to fit the space and one that was recirculating because I do not have an outside vent. This microwave, although a bit larger in height and depth from my old one fits nicely. The two light levels and two vent speeds are nice as is the inside light. The turntable is large and works well. I use the express cook levels more than I did on my old microwave. It is very quiet, looks nice, and is easy to clean. I had the microwave delivered to my home and the old one removed and taken away by the delivery men. The microwave comes with a new hanging bracket which I installed. There is a template included for marking the holes for the screws for the bracket and the above cabinet. You will need another person to hold the microwave while installing it. So far, we are very happy with this purchase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Prickamongus So far, so good!
Just had this installed by Home Depot to replace a 5yr old GE that died. This model is the non-vented version of one that got a "Best Buy" rating on CR. We didn't want the sensors and other gadgets so this model fills the bill. We like the surface lighting better than our previous unit. The control panel is dark and harder to read. We think that GE should offer a 10yr magnetron warranty like other manufacturers as a $59 Walmart microwave has the same 1 yr warranty. We bought the 5yr Home Depot extended warranty just in case.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dpetschenko very nice microwave
My old GE microwave stopped working after about 10 years so I bought another one and I'm very happy. I like the space inside, the quick cook buttons! Only wish it had a middle rack inside. There is enough room. But over all very happy!

Not happy with this microwave installed 2 weeks ago. Have to tug on the door handle to open and it's noisy...impossible to open and close the door quietly. The panel is hard to read, requires extra pressure to set and the beeper volume is not adjustable. My older GE that this one replaced was much more user friendly with more features. The only pro for this one is that it works with quieter fan operation. I will be switching this one out for another.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GTOJudy All Pros - One Con - 1.6 cf GE Microwave
Having happily owned a 1.7 cf GE microwave before, I chose this one as it was close in size and had the features I wanted. I am please with this one's performance as well.
The only con for me (and I wish I had noted its absence when choosing) was that it has no rack as my old one did, just the turntable. Not a big deal since the turntable can be turned off and on, but something that I had used a lot previously.
