Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DonB Excellent over the range microwave
Excellent replacement for my old Sharp over the range microwave - fits in perfectly.
My old Sharp lasted 15 years and this newer model has even more room inside.
Both black or white units are available, I got a white one this time.
I was able to install it myself. I used several drywall anchors rated at 70# to mount the wall plate.
I put several pads on the range to protect it while mounting the unit to the wall plate.
I had to buy a couple extra drill bit sizes for my electric drill since I had to drill 3 holes in the top shelf for two bolts and for the power cord to fit thru.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by miriblue Just a few minor irritations...
The installation was pretty much as expected; it took me and my husband about 2 hours because this was our first experience installing one. The actual installing was pretty simple it just took us a while to figure it out.
The look of the microwave is much better in person than in the picture, it complements our kitchen very nicely. The microwave itself works fine and I like the overhead light is nice and bright.
Certain features that I do not like: the timer alarm only rings one time and then it stops. I was used to my old microwave timer which continues to beep until I cut it off, but this microwave only alarms you one time and that is it-- if you miss it, you miss it.
The defrost feature only allows you to enter up to 3 lbs and its set up to alert you to “rearrange” the food twice during the defrost process. This is fine if you are only working with 3lbs but if its more you will notice that the “re-arrangement” stages are too close together and purposeless. My way around this is to bypass the rearrangement stages by pushing start until I feel the food needs rearranging. Either way, I find that having to stop what I am doing in order to bypass the rearrangement stage is an inconvenience, my old microwave would continue to defrost while alerting you to rearrange the food--it did not require for me to hit start in order for it to continue.
These are minor irritations, but overall its a nice microwave.

This was a replacement for our over the range microwave which, after 18 years, went to the big kitchen in the sky. We have always had great experience with Sharp brand products and this one has not disappointed! It has larger interior room and accommodates taller bowls. We tend to use our micro for cooking veggies and for meal prep and are very pleased. We prefer to keep all our appliances the same color, so finding one in white was a big plus for us.

I have always had Sharp microwaves and when I found one with a larger than normal plate as compared to the others, I just had to buy it. Installation was fairly straightforward and just love my microwave.

Installed over stove as replacement for Sharp 1100-watt counter model in-use for years of exceptional service. Some timing adjustment is necessary for this 950-watter (baked potatoes 9min instead of 7min) but works great and looks terrific perched above the gas range. -R. Erney

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Citrean Great Microwave for the price
The microwave looks great and functions perfectly. It was very hard to find a white Sharp microwave and I believe this was the only one I could find, maybe for a reasonable price. The exterior size of the microwave is large, maybe because it contains a fan for the stove. The inside of the microwave is fine for regular microwave use. No problem there.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by adtt Works great, looks beautiful, and is a terrific value
Mounting plate design very good & simple. I don't vent to outside so installation was clean, easy. Product has all basic cooking features, nice big turntable, lots of interior space, very easy to operate. Only had it for 3 wks now, but its a great comfort to know the magnetron is guaranteed for 6 yrs after the basic 1yr warranty ends. Appearance is very nice, and rounded corners create a sense of high quality & luxury. The outer chassis was crushed a little in the back during shipping but it isnt visable when mounted under & between cabinets. The design allows the outer shell to be crushed & bent quite a bit before interfering with the wiring, electronics, or interior walls. Next time I might pay extra to use a shipper other than UPS to deliver this kind of product.
