Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Katnip Adequate Replacement
This was a replacement for our old GE microwave that still functioned; however, the interior had rusted to the point the turntable would often get stuck. We bought this model because GE said this was the same size and would fit into the existing cabinet space. It fits but the price was $100 more than the previous microwave and the touch pad buttons are smaller and not laid out as well. Our old microwave had a small GE Profile logo on the lower left side of the door while this model has a much larger centered GE logo, which is not aesthetically pleasing.
Also, GE said the existing trim kit wouldn't fit this microwave. The only difference in this and the old one was a slight curvature to the top of the old one where this one is straight. Everything else is EXACTLY THE SAME, down to the screw holes, slots, size and trim kit template. We compared it to our old one, kept it, and returned the new one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chulo191 This replacement item brought my household back to normalcy
The microwave was a replacement for the same model we had for about ten years. This one has some newer features. The down time waiting on arrival was eye opening. I never realized how much we relied on our microwave. This is a wonderful product and it has brought our household back to normalcy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sfrvn Good for the price
My impression of this product is that it is a 'counter-top' unit without the "sides" that enclose it. It slides into the cabinet cutout. The microwave it replaces (16 years old) was just as big, but had much smaller cooking cavity and did NOT require a trim kit.
Installing the trim kit around the microwave was the most difficult part. I am not a carpenter, so getting the oven centered, at the correct height, and secured in the cutout was a challenge! I needed the help of my son in order to install it -- lift oven into cutout, plug/unplug oven during install, adding shims, etc.
A carpenter probably could have installed the oven in 30 minutes. It took me 1.5 hours to assemble oven and get the trim kit installed.
1. Although rated at 400 watts more than old oven, I can detect no hotter/faster cooking.
2. Turntable is nice.
3. Interior oven volume is quite good. (Much bigger than old oven.)
4. Clock (on front of oven) is *much* smaller (and much less convenient) than old oven.
5. Product would be 'better' if no trim kit was required. Make flanges/edges of oven front panel extend out to 27" or 30". That way, no trim kit installation is required... just slide oven in, engaging anti-tip secured to cutout floor.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RJ Still a great product
We replaced an old GE microwave that served us faithfully for many years. This new one looks just as good, is slightly bigger and operates beautifully.
The installation of the new trim packet was much more tedious than the previous unit.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sb did not work
The first time out of the box and the microwave did not work. The light came on, the fan came on ,the turntable turned, but it did not heat at all. I tried diffrent power levels. Still it did not heat anything. The worst part is I had to order a custom trim kit to fit my existing cabinet. Home depot would not pick the non functioning unit back up, so I had to arrange to get this bulky item back to the store. It took over an hour and a half to get a refund. I do not blame this on the nice ladies at the store, but on GE for giving them the run around. They sold a product that did not work from the get go! Unfortunately, I am forced to order the exact model to fit the custom ordered trim kit. I hope this one is not a dud!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HappyCooker Very happy with our new microwave!
We bought this unit to replace an older model which we had for about 10 years. I love that there is a little "cheat sheet" sticker when you open the door which tells you how to use the different settings. Since I usually use the express cook buttons, I find the quick reference nice. The microwave is quiet and heats well.
