We really love this microwave! its been in our family for 7 years and, granted, we do take excellent care of it, clean it frequently, and always use plastic microwave covers to prevent food and beverage splatter, but it still looks like new after all this time of daily use. It actually receives a surprising number of compliments from guests who are impressed with it! It is very large and spacious (can fit two standard medium sized plates in it at once), features a turntable that works very nicely, is a very powerful microwave, cooks everything quickly and thoroughly, features all the options you could ever need (inverter defroster, power level, timer, sensor reheat, popcorn, etc.) and has an attractive black and stainless steel design and finish that looks nice in a kitchen and is very easy to keep clean - inside and out. It's a more expensive microwave, in my opinion, but the quality is superior, it is very durable, very spacious, very high powered, very long lasting, and I think is absolutely worth the money - a great value for a solid product. I think the only two minor gripes I have about it are that it has a higher than average wattage, so you need to reduce the power level or it will burn popcorn every time, even with the popcorn button, and I also find the sensor reheat setting to overheat foods so they are blazing hot (again, I prefer to just set the time and use a lower power level for reheats). But this microwave is one we, and everyone who visits out home, loves and when ours finally dies (which we don't think will be for many more years still), our first choice would be an identical replacement.
