We have only had it a month but it works great so far. It's really nice having a powerful microwave for once. Two smaller 900 watt units that were supposed to be temporary, but we kept way too long. This one has great features like the inverter technology which lets one control the power more precisely. The sensor heat function is good for reheating things. It also seems study enough to last a while. The only negative is that the feet are not sticky enough to keep it from moving a little when I push to door latch button. I'm just gonna glue some rubber feet on the bottom. And finally I need to mention that ordering online and having it delivered to my local store was so quick and easy...no one had to be at home for the delivery and I could pick it up at my convenience.

I wasn't looking for a real expensive microwave to replace my old one, but I wanted a nice looking one that would fit in the shelf opening. This one was the perfect size, has some great functions and looks awesome in my kitchen.

This is a good size microwave with a lot of power. More heat than my last one and seems to heat faster. Lots of bells and whistles that I have not had to use yet. I first got a GE for $125 at Home Depot but we ended up returning it for this. It looked better and had a larger cooking space in side. But, the proof will be "in the pudding" if this lasts ten years like my last microwave (Panasonic). We've only been using it a month. Four stars are because there is not a 30 second button for quick coffee heat ups and there aren't any one minute, two, etc. You have to push more buttons then hit start. No short cuts with button pushing.

Finding a "full size" microwave just shy of 24" wide was quite the feat, and I found I had to replace a 15 year old Sharp with something else. I chose the Panasonic for its size (23.5"), but also for the turntable and the popcorn button. The popcorn button is a crucial element in this house.
Overall, I'm pretty happy with it. The sensors aren't as sensitive as I ....or the maple syrup...would like, but we're getting used to each other. The controls are user friendly and it does what I ask it to do. And it's quieter than my old one. This was a good choice for this kitchen. And I would gladly recommend the Panasonic.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Daniel59 Total Disappointment
I bought this unit to replace my 13 year old Panasonic microwave. This 1.6 cu ft was pretty much the same as my old one but somewhat updated. It worked great......for 1.5 months !!! Suddenly it stopped running while in use with error code H98 in the display. I unplugged/replugged unit and it ran once, then failed again. Owners manual and internet research indicated this was a major failure requiring service at repair shop. If this unit was dead out of the box, I would think ok it's a bad one I'll just get another. But a major failure like this on a unit less than 2 months old tells me to expect poor reliability. Again internet research showed me that I was not alone with Panasonic microwaves failing early. I don't have time for unreliable products so I'm done with Panasonic.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BGUB1T This product has great easy to use features.
This is my second Panasonic microwave. The first one we bought in 1989 is still working and has never given us any problems, but we decided it was time for an upgrade. Based on the performance of the first one there was no question about which "brand " we would purchase. We have had the new one for a month and we love it! It is quieter than the old one and warms/cooks faster. Thank you for continuing to produce a great product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JLeeR Excellent countertop microwave
This is my first full size model, my first microwave being a hand me down .6 cubic foot model. Wow - had I known how fabulous the sensor reheat and cook feature worked, I would have purchased one much sooner. The popcorn feature works perfectly - no more burnt popcorn or old maids. The 1.6 model to me seems plenty large. I really love it and would highly recommend this brand and model.
