Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by paula Very satisfied with this product
This microwave has more functionality then we need or will use. We bought it because it has a 14 inch turntable. We had a larger turntable in another GE model and really liked it. The lower end microwaves have 11 inch turntables, I beleive. This microwave also comes with a rack for cooking large items that won't fit on the turntable. We also needed a microwave that vented internally (vs externally) and this one worked for us. This microwave has a power saver button. I am not sure how much power it actually saves but I am for saving power! We have have had this microwave about a month and are very satisfied with it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pianoman So far, so good
We bought this microwave to replace another GE installed in 2003, which still worked well except for the hidden vent piece at the top which had broken. Since a replacement piece was over $100 we decided to replace.
After much research we decided this model was an almost direct replacement. It installed using the same bracket as the one it replaced, except the screw holes into the upper cabinet were different. The installers were good and a bargain at $49.
So far we like this microwave. It has all of the features of the former oven plus the surface light is much brighter and the vent is much stronger. We chose this recirculating model with charcoal filter due to not being vented outside.

The key pad stopped woking 6 months in.. I had to unplug it to reset it every time and it was hit or miss if it would start working again otherwise i would have to wait a day or two. It stopped working completely now. I had bought this to replace a GE profile i hade for 10years which worked fine but my cleaning people broke the handle. Tried to match up vent and holes in cabinet so i dont have to drill more holes in cabinet.
Very disappointed in this microwave.... Big inconvenience too.. Probably going to switch brands now.. Do not buy this microwave

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by homeowner1234 Great MW for the price
This MW replaced an older GE spacemaker model. The installation was very, very easy as the brackets and upper screw holes were the same, and even if they weren't the installation instructions are better than most. The microwave is very useful, same wattage as the previous model so it heats foods quickly. The inside of the oven is dim. The interior bulb is not bright and the interior is a gray paint. There is no "custom" button on this microwave either like there are on earlier models. Overall though a very good MW for the price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TG1979 Great microwave
I was a little timid about buying after reading some of the reviews. But I decided to buy and I've been extremely happy since installing it 2 months ago. Just read the directions and installation goes by pretty easily. Apparently people can't read directions or just like to complain, go figure. I don't have a vent hose leading to the outside so it explains in the directions how to turn the blower motor so it blows out the front and how to install the filter above the door. I also read about people complaining about the dark color inside the microwave, I actually like it because it helps to hide any food splatter in between cleanings. I guess it doesn't have all the new features, but let's be honest how often do you use anything outside of cook, timer or defrost? Oh I also remember reading about people complaining of the blower noise. Again, apparently people don't read directions. If you install the blower motor correctly and make sure the right screws are in place and mount the microwave properly then it works perfectly fine. There's low, medium, high & like a turbo speed that works great. The light has an on & night light options that work great as well. So overall if you are looking for a good microwave and have common sense and the ability to read installation instructions this is a great purchase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Good value overall. Lightweight plastic door seems a little cheap. Fan is very loud, but it works quite well.
Good value for a stylish microwave.
Pros: Fairly easy to install, although you will need a few tools. It is better to have 2 people when you are mounting it (I did it by myself and it was tricky). Lots of space and plenty of features.
Cons: Door is made of very lightweight plastic, as are many of the trim components which gives the product a cheap feel. Also, it is very easy to scratch.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by happycustomer It's exactly what I hoped it would be.
It is fast and I like the turntable which is larger than the one on my last GE microwave.

NOISY, DOOR SHUTS HARD, I THOUGHT THE DEFROST FEATURE WOULD NOT COOK FOOD, BUT IT DOES.
