    Good, but the touchpad is already peeling

    We just retired a 36 yo Sanyo with this excellent for the money GE. Love the turntable and how evenly it heats. Wish there were a bit more contrast in the non-backlit keypad as it is difficult to read without direct lighting. The film over the keypad appears to be a bit fragile as it has already been compromised over the Start button in the short time we've owned it. For the price, I would recommend it.

    Great microwave for the price

    I love this microwave. I like that it is not too big, but still has the larger plate inside. The stainless finish is great. I clean it with mild soap and water, then dry it with a towel. This works perfectly. It is slightly less watts than my old microwave, but seems to heat better. I love the buttons for 1-6 minutes (one push). The other buttons seem to be really accurate too, such as beverage, vegetable, and popcorn. Overall, a great microwave for the price.

    This microwave cost just $100, which is an incredible value considering it replaces another GE microwave that cost $300+, was smaller and less powerful. I gave it 4 stars only because, in order to cook a potato or veggies, I have to enter a time for cooking and then watch it to make sure it is fully cooked. The more expensive microwave had a sensor that would allow automatic cooking of a potato or veggies just by pushing the potato or veggie button.

    My old microwave quit so I had to buy a new one. I checked out a bunch of different ones and I liked the reviews for this one. It is quiet and I really like the pre-set functions. It is nice looking too. I don't really care for the way it continues to beep when it's done, but that's a personal preference, it's not that bad. I like that it has a kitchen timer too. I would definitely recommend this microwave!

    Our Panasonic microwave recently bit the dust after only 2 years of normal use, so we decided to go with this GE one instead. We had actually had great GE brand microwaves in the past - but, they were all over-the-range ones. This is our first standalone microwave from them, but so far it works just as well. Great options, the buttons are responsive, and it's a compact design for how much you can fit inside of it. It's only 950w, but it works just like a 1000w. Highly recommend it.

    Great price and product overall. Reviews about not being able to put in specific time are wrong and tell me someone did not look at directions or can not figure it out. Reviews about hard to read panel is also true and why only 4 stars. I replaced an 800 microwave with this 950 and wow what a difference. Heats items up quicker and appears hotter compared with old one. Price outweighs any negatives.

    Good microwave for a small space

    I moved into a temporary apartment and needed to get a small microwave for the kitchen. I didn't want to give up capacity if possible so I looked at all of the countertop choices available. This microwave is not the smallest but is of a good size so that it doesn't take up all of the space on the counter. So far it has been very dependable. The microwave is also quiet when running which was a surprise. For the price, this is a great value.

    We hadn't purchased a new microwave in over 9 years. There were so many to choose from and some were not worth even considering. But as always Best Buy had the better deal. This microwave is so quiet that you don't notice it when it's on, there's a lot of settings but it's not as complicated as we thought. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is interested in a new microwave.

    The 950 watts do not seem to make much of a difference. This thing works quickly and effectively. I like that it is easy to set a specific time and power lever, i.e. 37 seconds at power level 6. The light comes on when the oven is on and whenever you open the door. The only reason I did not give it five stars is because the signal sound is weak and I rarely hear it. Same with the timer. When it goes off it is too quiet. Other than that I am totally satisfied with this unit.

    We love this microwave! sometimes we had to press a button twice because it was unresponsive. We got this on sale and for the price and it use, sticky buttons are not deal breaker for us. We kept it and it fit perfectly on our countertop. We love the stainless steel design. Looks expensive on our countertop and tied with our decor.

    I bought this microwave last summer and moving into my new apartment and it’s working great! Not the most powerful but gets the job done. I’ve cooked full meals and heated frozen meals with no problems. Fits a full sized dinner plate perfectly. Had to get used to the shortcut buttons. If you hit “1” it will automatically start cooking at full power for one min. “2” is two mins, etc. Great little microwave!

    Stopped Working Quickly

    We purchased this microwave 2 months ago. We've used it several times without any issues. It heated quickly, looked nice. One morning it just died. Out of no where, just stopped working and wouldn't turn on anymore. It's under warranty so, I'll be taking it into the Geek Squad, but I'd much rather have a different brand. Not sure what happened, but I wouldn't recommend this product to any one.

    Bought this on the spur of the moment to replace one that was ruined because of a low voltage problem. The old one was GE as well and I really liked it so stayed with the same brand. This one is stainless and looks nice....the power button always has fingerprints on it, but not a big deal. The very best thing is the quiet operation....makes much less noise than the old one. It works well and as soon as I educate myself about the new operating buttons I'll be good to go.

    I wanted a mid-size microwave from a trusted brand, and this one fits the bill. I can pop a bag of microwave popcorn (if I hit the button to the right size bag) and it fits, and it pops correctly. A plate fits inside. Perfect for what I needed for my small apartment, but big enough to not feel like a college student.

    Love this microwave, however the sticker that the manufacturer places on the touch pads pulls creating bubbles when you remove it. I returned one because of this and the second one I received had a sticker in the same place and did the same exact thing when removed. They should place the sticker elsewhere on the microwave instead of the push screens.

    Good microwave but shows stains easily

    I've found that a little vinegar removes most of the stains. This microwave is powerful and aesthically pleasing. My daughter says the food tastes even better than it did with our ancient microwave. Quick note, the microwave comes wrapped in a blue plastic that you can peel off. I honestly opened the box and thought it was a blue microwave. I've had this microwave for over a month and no problems so far. It's incredibly easy to set the clock time.

    A small footprint microwave at a reasonable cost. I have had it for almost 6 months and it has worked just fine. We have a small kitchen in our apartment and it fits well. We reheat food, pop popcorn, and so forth with it. Reviews said that these sometimes die, but so far zero problems. I got the Geek Squad protection for it, just in case. Price matched with a local competitor. I'm very happy with the transaction and the protection offered.

    OK Microwave but it will likely be returned

    This replaces an older model GE Microwave oven that is showing some rust inside. Cooks about as efficiently as old one. I like features vs. price. However, this microwave's construction quality cannot compare to the old one. Sides rattle especially when cooking. Biggest problem is the button to open the door; it takes so much force the microwave slides across the counter!

    Hope this model of GE microwaves doesn't give any problem. My last one broke down beyond repair after 10 months of use. The company issued the gift card immediately to facilitate replacement but obviously i was bound to buy none other but a GE microwave, again. If the new one doesn't live up to my expectations, then my trust in GE is gone. Best of luck, GE!

    We have had this microwave for about 10 months and have not had any issues. At times the turn table squeals, but it is fine. It also seems that this microwave does a better job heating the entire dish rather than just the edges. The controls for defrost and some of the other features take a little getting use to, but the most used controls are easy. Four stars only because I rarely rate anything a 5.
