Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PTE Mounting plate method needs to be re-engineered
The microwave itself has a large food area, strong venting, but small and insufficient lighting for the cooktop it is mounted over.
The food heats quickly and evenly.
My concerns for this unit are:
#1 I'm replacing an identical unit which suddenly refused to heat anymore and which wasn't over 2 years old--gives me a bad feeling about the dependability;
#2 The mounting plate which the microwave fits onto is cheap and flimsy, hardly able to support the unit and woefully unable to withstand any bending at all. This should be made of steel, not aluminum! The whole mounting method needs re-engineering.

Microwave has been working just fine but it has only been about a month. Easy to install. If it last as long as its predecessor I will be thrilled.

It was fairly easy to install. It's not very classy looking, kind of a dull finish. I was hoping for a shinier look. It does the job. The door opens with a push button. I had a microwave in the past and the internal hardware for the push button opener was plastic and eventually broke. I hope this one holds up. I wil try to not pop it hard or slam the door and perhaps I can get a long life.

I needed a microwave with off-set door hinges to 'sandwich' in between RV cabinets and fridge and still allow the door to open all the way. This one did the trick. I found the 950 watts a little 'weak'. Shouldn't be that much difference between 950 watts and 1000 but there is. I have to set this for another 30seconds or so to heat and cook. Not a deal breaker but next time I'll go for a 1000 watts. Good microwave. Wish sharp would put a handle on their door and get rid of the latch. The instruction were ridiculous-sharp gave me the name of an installer who was nice enough to clarify the confusing installation instructions.

I purchased this product on Dec. 22. By Jan. 18, the latch had already ceased working. Had to take it to Home Depot 45 miles from my home. Could not exchange because it was bought online. It had never even been installed over my stove--it was still sitting on the counter! This is the same problem I had with the 1st one I bought. IF I could find another brand that would fit the opening, I would. However, I am stuck with this brand (or remodel my kitchen). Now, I have driven home and must order another, have it delivered to another store and drive to pick up again..

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SF00 Poor quality
I purchased this microwave to replace another Sharp over-the-range model. The original model was broken, specifically the door lock/release broke and I could no longer close the door securely. Therefore the microwave was non-functional. I purchased this new model b/c the of the specifications. I was looking for a similar model to fit in the space that would be relatively easy to install. Just thirteen months in and the door lock/release broke on this model as well, again making the microwave non-functional. Unfortunately, it broke just 32 days after the one year warranty expired. I will no long purchase Sharp products.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by microwaveuser Good Purchase
Installed in very defined space occupied by similar Sharp product. Clean and roomy space, well lit. I have only used it a few weeks but am very pleased with this purchase at this time. Enjoy the "flat" finish look, and the fact that this microwave is very quiet when it is running. Also seems to be a little more powerful than the temporary counter model I had been using. Love the over-the-stove installation. Convenient and out of the way.
