This microwave is an updated version of our 10 plus year model that it replaced.
The old one is still working but was "confiscated" by our son who wore out a different brand in about 2 years.
This one has a few more presets and a dial instead of buttons. We are getting used to the dial selector and find it to be better than we expected. The only shortcoming I've noticed so far is that it has a much softer door release than the old one. It makes it seem like something is not right but it works good. Too bad there isn't a model with all the same features in Black instead of stainless.
Still, it's a super microwave for home use.

We had an old Quasar Microwave Convection oven that was 22 years old and was finally ready to be replaced. We didn't use the Convection part so we looked for a replacement that was similar in size and features without the convection option. This and the model just below this were the two we narrowed our search to. We chose this one, as the selector dial did not protrude from the front panel. This has not disappointed us. The oven size, even with the turntable, allows for family sized cookware to be used. It took a bit to get used to the touch wheel, but once you get used to it it is easy and very intuitive. We love it and hope to get a good run of time with this microwave.

This was a gift from my sister when she found out out old microwave oven had given out. The unit is smaller than our old one but the interior capacity is greater. We like the look of the exterior. We are still getting used to the dial versus buttons but overall like this oven.

We have only had this for a week but so far it has met our expectations but exceeded them. I can't wait to use it to its full capability! The only disadvantage I could see for some people would be the size but to do what is expected of it, it needs to be that large. Finally, at first I was slightly intimidated by the interface but after the first try I realized that was extremely user friendly, even my stuck-in-the19th century husband found it easy to figure out how to use it. It is well worth every
penny. Very impressive product! On top of the excellence of the product itself, it arrived well in advance if its expected arrival date.

We recently ordered the 1250W 2.2 Cu. Ft. Convertible Microwave NN-SE982S microwave directly from Panasonic and are very happy with it. It looks good and is very spacious. The dial is so much easier to use than punching in numbers. The Sensor Cook feature is really nice, it cooked a whole sweet potato to perfection. So far we are very satisfied.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Deechip Good but not long lasting
This is my fourth Panasonic. The first one was in the 80s! That was a workhorse and lasted until I gave it away when I moved. After that, they just aren't built to last more than a few years. My problem with the last unit was the latch. When it stops working correctly, the unit won't run. Unfortunately the current units still have the same latch. Most manufacturers are using the same type of latch. So since I know and like the features of a Panasonic, there is no sense in changing brands because of the latch.

We're loving our new microwave. Have had an Inverter before so that's not new. (As always, we love the smooth cooking... oatmeal is right every time.)
This new unit gives us more:
- defrosting that actually works
- easier no-moving-parts setup. The electronic touch-dial is very very nice. (Hint: spin at the edge for slow increase... spin near the middle for fast!)
My only wish... when spinning through the genius sensor cooking choices... it would help if it listed the meaning of the current number.
