"Great microwave with reasonable price"5.0 starson by mcnevich
Pros: Quiet; compact; sturdy; value; turbo defrost; beep when steaming feature; high wattage
Cons: None so far
Summary: Purchased this from newegg to replace my 12 year old Sharp microwave. I am so glad I picked the Panasonic. I could tell as soon as I unpacked it that it's well made and sturdy. The turbo defrost is great. So far I've noticed that food does not get dry around the edges like it did in my old microwave. Got lucky in the fact that the glass turntable from my old microwave fits in this one also so I'm keeping the old glass turntable as a spare. One very nice feature is that it has a sensor inside so when your food starts to steam (even if the time you set isn't up yet) the microwave beeps so you can check it. It's 300 watts higher than my old microwave and so far it works like a champ. If it lasts as long as my old one did I will be very satisfied. The buttons are on the right side in a separate panel--my old one had the buttons in the door. I like the separate panel better. Definitely read the manual because it has many features that I wouldn't have stumbled on without reading it.
