      Be Cautious of quality- use ASAP to see if works

      !st DOA, it worked 10 secs stopped, used presets & it worked 20 secs & didn't heat. 2nd unit is okay so far. More powerful than avg microwave so cut your times in half to be safe. Prev Panasonic w/ inverter tech & 1250 watts cooked fresh broccoli 50% power in 4 mins NOW 50% power about 2 mins to cook. We like that it cooks food 50% faster than old microwave. Haven't used defrost but all reviews we read stated it doesn't cook food when defrosting, which is why I paid more for the cyclonic technology. Fingers crossed this lasts at least 10 years like last Panasonic. Note compare to previous Panasonic this is shorter, deeper, & wider; i.e. it doesn't match footprint on countertop like previous unit.

      Near perfect microwave

      After buying and returning another microwave because it was so loud, we bought this and love it. It has everything we wanted: inverter technology, so it can do true low-power microwaving when you need it; interior light when open or cooking; large turntable; intuitive controls; sensor cooking; ability to select any number of minutes and seconds (not just 30-second increments) and it's reasonably quiet. Construction is solid and door latch works smoothly. Keypad has only fair visibility when it's not directly illuminated, but it's still better than most we looked at (and we shopped a lot). Highly recommended.

      I bought this as a replacement for a 3 year old Panasonic Inverter Prestige that quit working because the door was no longer locking properly. This was supposed to be a newer and better model compared to the one that broke down. The microwaved worked great for a week with speedy and even heating. Unfortunately it flat out quit working after a week. The darn thing just wouldn't microwave a thing. Luckily it was within the return period so I was able to exchange it for another unit. The current one is working great. I did purchase the extended warrantee under Best Buy just in case though...

      Been searching for a microwave to replace my old one. This was the perfect size for my cabinet. It's large interior is contained in a relatively small footprint. I had to search a lot of brands to find one with large interior that would fit into my small space. It has some special tornado heating that really heats evenly. i have yet to spatter anything on the interior. I think it's the inverter technology thats keeps things heating evenly. I heats and cooks perfectly. I think its quiet too.

      This is our third Panosonic Inverter microwave. They have lasted 5-6 yrs. of heavy use. This one is a little bigger than our last one and about 50 watts more powerful. Others have commented on the Blue LCD clock which at a distance, >6 feet is a little difficult to read as the blue light blurs. Other than that we are very pleased. The door on this model opens and closes much easier than the last one we had where you had to really shut it hard to make it close. Good value for the price - $169 even if you have to replace in another 5-6 yrs.

      This was bought to replace an older one. Turntable is great. I'm learning about the Sensor Cook settings but so far they work fine! The inside light is a bit dim, so it's hard to see your food as it cooks. The keypad lights are a dimmer blue. Can't see them unless pretty close to the microwave, so if you use your microwave as a clock, you might not like the blue lights. Microwave seems to cook things a bit faster than my old one, but it's not hard to adjust to it. Overall it's been a good buy for the money spent.

      The previous microwave was Panasonic Inverter and had all the features needed for our household. Before entering the Best Buy, I told my husband we were to look for a black or stainless steel Panasonic microwave with the same features of the one we had at home...Plus they are rated highly by Consumer Reports. Not only did I find the microwave of choice, but was on sale, Plus I had reward money from previous purchases...Win>>>Win! for our family.

      Nice feature -- when you set up the microwave you can choose to have it NOT beep as you are setting it. Great. I chose that. The first time I burned my dinner while using the timer, I thought I had fallen asleep or something and just not heard the timer. The second time it happened, my daughter didn't hear the timer go off either. Turns out when you select the "no beep" option, THE TIMER DOESN"T BEEP EITHER. How stupid is that?
