    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.

    Very tinny door and sound when closing. Pad is difficult to use and hard to read if it is not at eye level. Heats well and cooks evenly .

    The numbers on the key pad are very hard to see. Also hard to program. So far I am not a fan.

    We are very pleased with this microwave. It is powerful enough for the reheating and occasional defrosting we need it for. We like the smaller size. Keypad is a bit dark, but once you know which buttons to use, it's not a huge deal at all, even in low light.

    This would really be 4.5 stars because the key pad is hard to read . . needs bigger, brighter font or back lighting. Other than that, the design is attractive and it works well.

    The only reason I take off one star is because the digital keypad is hard to read. I did read about it in reviews so I knew it could be a problem. Backlighting would be nice but it's not a deal breaker. Otherwise, the microwave has plenty of power and is much quieter than my last microwave.

    I really like the looks and size of this microwave. It has a light inside when the door opens and when it runs...a bonus as I found many do not. Perfect size for most dishes as I do not use it for cooking, basically reheating and thawing. I am not crazy about the number pad, letters are dark and hard to see if no light by it and you really have to push the buttons hard to get them to work. Otherwise a good buy.

    Its a good microwave for the price. It is a little loud and the keypad does not light up. If there aren't any lights on, you may have some difficulty seeing what you're doing. Otherwise, its a decent product. I use it mainly to defrost and pop-corn.

    Just about everytime I use it I have to open the door, unplug it, put whatever inside, close the door & hit start. If I don't do this & just punch in 2 minutes it says FOOD! It's a real pain in the butt! The keypad doesn't light up & it's hard to read. I wanted another one but the guy I was working with at the store wasn't there for a few days & the other guy said I had to purchase this because they special ordered it. I'm not a happy customer!!!!

    We waited 3 months after purchase to write review. Overall, it works well, and it was reasonably priced. 1. Like a lot of others, we don't like the black keypad. Very difficult to see. With the last GE of this size, you just punched in a time & hit Start. With this one, you have to bend over, squint, & figure it out. 2. At 950 watts, it is a little weak. A cup of water heated for 60 sec is not as hot as our previous 1000 watt. You will need to use the higher end of recommended cooking times. 3. It has a ridiculous logic feature the should have been left off. If you open the door, put a dish of food inside, and close the door, it thinks you are ready to cook right now. But if you wait a while before starting, it forgets the food is in there! So after a few minutes you start to enter something on the keypad, it gives you an error message "Food". That means it thinks there is no food inside when actually there is. So you have to open the door again & shut it again just to tell the stupid robot that there is food inside. Will someone please stop this artificial intelligence nonsense before its too late?
