Rated 4 out of 5Â by Dave Replaced my GE Monogram 2.1 CU almost perfectly
When your high-end Monogram 2.1 cu microwave breaks down beyond repair (if it hasn't already) GE will tell you that they discontinued that model replaced it with a 1.5 cu Monogram microwave. (umm. what?)
After reading a variety of reviews, I took a chance that this model would fit in my existing mount. It did. With the exception of one or two sheet metal mounting screws that didn't line up (there are a dozen total).
It also fit using my existing bezel. So all I needed was the microwave itself.
it's true that this model is half as loud as the Monogram that it replaced. The keypad, presets, and sensor are all nearly identical.
And it's NOT true that this comes with a mounting bracket or bezel. Someone from GE posted (either here or on Amazon) that it comes with everything you need for cabinet mounting. it does not. Fortunately, my existing hardware fit & it was exactly what I needed without a huge hassle.
I can't tell you why GE would replace a 2.1 cu Monogram with a 1.5 cu Monogram, but that wasn't going to work for us. This one did, and I'm thrilled.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by pyyu Not an exact replacement for my old GE Profile Oven
My GE microwave oven died after working hard for my family for the past 12 years. Since the oven was installed in my kitchen with a built-in look I tried to look for another GE profile microwave oven which will exactly replace the broken one. This one I bought is supposed to be such an replacement. I found that it will fit into the same opening as the old one but its height and depth are such that I cannot use the old trim and hardware. Clearly GE design it such that I have to shell out over $200 for a new set of trim and hardware if I want to retain the built-in look.
Otherwise the oven seems to work like the old one and is quite a bit quieter.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by jad19 Oven Doesn't Deliver Rated Power
After noticing that the new microwave took significantly longer to heat food than the 13 year old GE microwave that it replaced, I measured the power delivered to the load using the traditional method. The new oven is rated at 1100 watts, the same as the old one. The measured power delivered to the load was only 825 to 850 watts. The test method used by the manufacturer reportedly yields a power level 100 watts above that obtained using the traditional method. So, the measured power using the manufacturer's method would be only 950 watts at most - 150 watts below the advertised rated power. A search of the internet revealed that this is typical not only for GE but for almost all microwave manufacturers. Almost none of the currently manufactured microwave ovens produce their rated power.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by MattW Worked with old Trim Kit
I recently purchased this model to replace the old GE model JE2160SF01. New model works like a champ, although I don't particularly like the big logo on the front. Another advantage, I was able to use the old trim kit (JX2130SH) with ease.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by NewMexiKen Replaced similar unit
Our first microwave lasted for 12 years, so we went for this upgrade which is a bit more powerful. One petty complaint is that the timer on this one sounds only once. The old one would keep beeping until you heard it and turned it off.
