    Nice microwave

    Typical GE microwave. Works well and full of features, it was a replacement for another GE profile. Downsides if you are buying as a replacement like we did....the wall mounting plate is different by 1/2inch than previous GE microwave so you have to replace it. Most annoying is the fact that GE altered the bolt pattern on top where you mount it to the cabinet by about an inch for all holes, requiring new drilling and a whole set of empty holes. Last issue is that the power cord comes out of the middle of the top rather than the back. This creates unnecessary obstruction in the cabinet. These last two are really annoying and totally unnecessary...they represent a real design fail that could have been easily avoided.

    This was a (huge) upgrade over an old college-style microwave which was purchased many years ago to fit a space it needed to fit into. This new microwave more than fits the bill with a number of quick settings. The built in fan which we have yet to have hooked up to output through the root is very powerful. Even at full power, the microwave itself is very quet and the downlighting levels are good to illuminate the cooking surface underneath. I'm concerned about the multiple reviews I've seen about the bulbs burning out but so far, after only 2 weeks of moderate use, haven't had any bulb problems. Still, this microwave gets a positive review from me in it's overall build quality.

    I bought a GE Profile 14 years ago and it was problem free for that length of time and then it just quit working. I decided to buy another GE Profile microwave and I'm really glad I did because it was new and improved!!! The microwave cooks faster and the control buttons are in a very convient location!! It is very quiet when it is operating and the clock is much bigger!! The only thing that I don't like is that you can't see the food when you are cooking it!! I Highly recommend this Microwave and I'm very glad I bought another one!!

    Perfect Microwave For Short People

    We were looking for a microwave as part of a set of matching new appliances. GE had the right color (slate) and the right specs for our kitchen. The microwave is the higher end and has cool features that match up with the higher end range (blue tooth to sync the timers and automatically turn on the vent fan) which we did not get. We chose the microwave because the buttons are at the bottom and my wife liked that since she is only 5 ft tall. Everything else is as you would expect from a microwave with defrost mode and popcorn settings and a reheat function. The lighting is good and the vent fan has 4 speeds.

    Beautiful but Can't See Thru Door!!

    Should have read the reviews but this kind of mistake never occurred to me-purchased/installed;dumbfounded could not see thru door -- Absurd. Beautiful, convenient...but the door...really!! Don't designers use their product before going to market?? Next time will buy as nice & also see thru door. Will not be purchasing again - if asked will relate problem. Purchased whole appliance package for large kitchen renov & microwave is biggest complaint. Someone somewhere must have good answer and, hopefully, can get it @ next storevisit.

    I shopped around looking for a replacement for my older dead GE Profile microwave. I had decided that I would look at other brands, and when I came to Best Buy to look I found a great salesman. He worked with me reviewing all of the options and I ultimately decided to update to new GE Profile. This thing is spacious and cooks great. The controls are very intuitive and I was running it immediately. The only downside (and not really a problem) is the door closes weird. It is just different since it is much larger than the old one I had and feels like it takes more effort to open and close.

    Over the stove microwave

    Reasons I bought this was for the clean lines - no ugly handles that looked like pipes or that were to far to center. Next was for the lights underneath. It is warm lighting and not the overly bright blue whir of LEDs. And there are 2 so lighting is well distributed over the stove. Window into microwave is large to see how process is coming along. It was able to vent through my exiting vent to the outside too which was a nice surprise. So far very pleased!

    Have not had this microwave a year and we are on our second repair. The first issue started with a smell of burning plastic and then the microwave shut off. Repair took 3 weeks including scheduling the technician to come out, waiting for part to be shipped and then scheduling technician to install part. 3 months later and the same thing is happening and cant get technician out for 5 days. GE Profile is usually a good product but I would stay away from this one or buy a back up just in case which is what I'm going to do as we cant be without a microwave for 3 weeks.
