This is the microwave that my boyfriend has at his house. I feel like this microwave is slightly under-powered in comparison to many of today's microwaves. It's only 800 watts, which is on the low-end of the power scale, but it is a good budget buy. Just keep in mind that it will take a bit longer to heat through. It does heat evenly, however. I love the look of this microwave, the big round knob on the front is attractive and it matches stainless steel appliances. I also like the small size of this microwave. I really hate the interface of the microwave, however. The knob is very sensitive and I never really remember exactly what buttons to press... it isn't very user friendly.
