    Nice Buy And The LED Is White

    Had to return the first one due to damage by whatever delivery service delivered it to Best Buy. Hate having to take it back, but guess it was my turn for this type of incident. The crew was great and ordered a replacement which arrived 5 days later and was in great shape. I was replacing an older GE model and luckily the older template bolt holes (wall and top) matched up so installation was a breeze. GE had confirmed the color was white (not green) for the LED and yes it was. All new units shipped after 11/2017 apparently have the new LED which matched my new stove. I know it seems minor but it’s those little things. Same with the dark gray color behind the glass. Funny how it is gray (in flash) but in my kitchen it looks black and matches the stove, same with the dark gray on the side. Yes, the letters are a little tough to see but it’s the glare from the plastic and not the actual letter coloring. My kitchen is pretty bright so shouldn’t be an issue. The fan is about as loud as my last one but the actual microwave seems much quieter. The microwave is working great and as you probably know Best Buy had the best price.

    This Microwave replaces a GE spacesaver model from 1999 and uses a similar mounting system and screw locations thereby saving time on installation. The mounting bracket provided is far inferior to the existing bracket so I threw it away andf used the old one. Installation was quick, easy and didn't require any cutting of the cabinets. The Microwave itself works as designed, heats food similar to the prior model and has a better blower for the vent. It even comes with a carbon filter to kill food odors which is an improvement. The under counter light is in the rear of the unit and should be placed near the front to light into pots. It lights the wall well but not where you need it. The control buttons will take a little getting used to as their lettering is grey as opposed to white on a black background and can be difficult to see. The features are basic (no temp sensor probe, message console or fancy functions which rarely got used) and work as expected. A good overall unit that should last the next 15-20 years. Thanks GE !

    After researching several makes and models, I chose this one despite several critical reviews of the panel visibility and "tinny" door feel. I disagree that the type is hard to read, but my kitchen is well lit and I have decent eyesight. I do agree the door is noticeably less solid and heavy than our previous 2010 Profile model. We also notice the power seems less strong so we have to cook things a bit longer. The many features are convenient, so far we've only used less than half. I like the sleeker look, though slightly mismatched to our 2010 Profile range. Overall, we're pleased with the look and functions for the price.

    I needed a replacement microwave and I had the Whirlpool appliances in the past which did not last. So I went back to the old reliable “GE”. It’s durable, dependable and looks good. Although, I found the vent system to be useless and poorly designed because the vent is on top instead of face forward and air flow blows all the fumes up onto your cabinet and ceiling which would eventually damage the ceiling drywall and the filters are not made well enough to catch enough of the food grease and particles and smell from cooking. Aside from this flaw, I trust and stand by the GE brand and I still have my GE Profile refrigerator that was purchased in 1994 and it’s still working great.

    Looks great, but not user friendly

    The new microwave looks sleek and nice. However, it is not user friendly. It has two major problems. 1. The vent fan often starts automatically when I close the microwave, and the light remains on, but it does not cook or reheat, unless I shut it close really hard. Then it will function normal. 2. When the food is done, there is no sound indication to remind you that food is ready. 3. The exhaust fan has two levels, even at the lower level it makes very loud noise, which makes it impossibe to talk at the kitchen. Had I known, I would have purchased Kenmore, the brand I had before.

    Researched microwaves, wasn’t looking to spend a lot but did look for best quality, and display to match color of other appliances. Thought I covered all bases. Turns out display color wasn't what researched so didn’t program time-it’s bright green, not the blue. Quality is ok. Door tinny sound when open/close, stainless handle is overlay. The handle is plastic. Most disappointing was lighting which is in back. It lights backsplash and back two burners rather than whole cooktop. Fan is quiet and does a good job. Sensors not accurate, but overall not too bad for price. I would recommend investing a little more money for a more quality microwave.

    Nice Microwave

    Quite an upgrade from a 20 year old Quasar. Had never installed an over the stove microwave, and it was fairly simple. Takes a little bit of time, but instructions were clear. Make sure you have a 3/16", 1/2", 5/8" and 1-1/2" drill bit on hand. Only complaint is one I had read in a couple reviews...... can't nuke for less than 1 minute, though I'm thinking the "melt" button may solve that problem. I often melt butter and that only takes 20-30 seconds. Will have to play with that.

    It's a microwave, does what I need/want it to do. Like the fact that the turntable is flush with the bottom of the microwave. Only issue I had immediately was if I didn't have enough overhead light on, I couldn't see/read the control panel. It is more of a black on black. Now I'm use to where the ones I use are so it is no problem. It does have a smart feature: if you hit a control and there is nothing in the oven, it won't start, it will tell you to place item inside?? Very cool.
