Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nanajackson2010 Overall pleased with purchase
I don't use my microwave for anything complicated- I simply heat and/or reheat things- no gourmet meals being prepared, not cooking whole chickens, etc.- therefore, this item more than serves that purpose. It heats quickly and well, much better than the counter top microwave it replaced. My only concern - if you can call it that- would be that the door is rather loud when it closes and I'm sometimes bugged at having to push the cook button before just entering the time and start- minor annoyance at best. The size works for me because I don't really like when the oven protrudes too far beyond the front and/or bottom of the cabinet. Oh, and it's kind of weird that the name brand isn't actually on the oven.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TheNobleOne What a piece of junk!!!
I wish there was a way to give this fewer stars. Negative stars maybe?!?!?
Owned one for about a year and it failed. I was going out of town on a business trip the next day so needed to replace it quickly. I ended up buying the same unit to get it hung fast so my wife would have it while I was away. 6 months later... now this one is dead.
Fortunately I was smart enough to buy the warranty this time. Hoping there is a way to get off this Magic Chef carousel and upgrade to a better brand. Don't waste your money on this piece of junk

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Norma So clean, crisp looking as well as easy to use features
My husband installed this microwave easily, of course with a little help from me. We had installed the same
type in our last house and we enjoyed all its features, clean, crisp appearance. The performance was great and we no complaints with the previous one that is why we purchased another one for our new house. Thank you for providing such great service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by starrzy1 Our 2nd Magic Chef Microwave
We did an in-store pickup, and were treated very nicely! They even loaded it in our car, and it was not damaged, thankfully. My husband and son in law installed it, with relative ease, and we have been very pleased with it so far! It has been updated since our last one, and seems quieter and cleaner looking, as the fan blows out of the top and not the front, so you don't see the grates. We noticed the little magic chef logo is gone. We were able to use the same mounting bracket. That was good that part was not changed, making it easier to install. This is an excellent microwave, does just as much as the pricey ones, and great for those on a budget!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by smithtomm Do not purchase!
You get what you pay for. One year into it and the microwave died. Won't heat food. Everything looks like it's working, but the food doesn't heat up. It is made by some company in China that no one has ever heard of. Spend the extra $50 and get a better brand.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MagicChefMan Our Second Magic Chef Microwave
I purchased this to replace a Magic Chef MCO160UB that we had for six years and used multiple times daily. We never had a problem with the MCO160UB, which is why we stayed with the brand. Another plus is the new MCO165UB microwave was easy to install since the bracket and screw positions in the cabinet match perfectly with the older unit. I didn't even have to use the new bracket - just mounted the new microwave to the old one & tightened the cabinet screws. No re-drilling necessary! I have had this unit for two months, and am hopeful it works a well as the unit it replaced. So far, it has been perfect. This unit does not have as many features as the more expensive microwaves, which is fine with me. I did purchase the additional two year warranty for a very small amount, but doubt I'll have to use it. Great product that looks sleek in our kitchen but is functional as well.

First one lasted 2 weeks, second one lasted 3 months. Now I have to install another one. But, Home Depot is the greatest, took the second one back without a receipt.
