I have had my Sharp microwave for over five years and I have really like it a lot. I heat food and beverages fast and it is not too loud. The key pad is hidden inside and I'm thinking that they designed it to keep children from pressing the keys. I have my microwave up high which keep the kids from messing with it as well. The different function also work well. It can defrost meat at lower settings and times it for you. It has a popcorn button and it says enjoy on the screen after it finishes the cycle. After you finish cooking it flashes end on the screen to that you are prompted to take food out. I sometimes forget so it is handy to have it remind me that something is in the microwave. I recommend this microwave because it has lasted several years.
