While this microwave was great while it was working for a few years, after a while it started to get a bit unresponsive on the controls front. I'm not sure whether the front controls are capacitative or resistive buttons, but after a few years of use, the buttons would sometimes not respond at all and we'd have to unplug the microwave and then plug it in again to get it to register the button presses. For a while, the digits weren't working, so we could only press the start button and just cook our food while watching the time. Besides the buttons problem, the design of the microwave is nice. If you were to get a perfectly working unit, I think its one of the better designs out there. Not all microwaves let you just hit start to cook without entering a duration, but this one does.
