I bought this a few weeks ago to replace another GE over the range microwave. It is much quieter than my old microwave. I was specifically looking for the convenience buttons where you push 1 to 6 and it automatically starts. No looking for the "time" button, pushing the needed time and then looking for "start". If you haven't tried this it is very nice. It has a nice light to illuminate the cooktop. The vent fan doesn't seem to be as strong as my previous microwave, I must turn the vent on when opening my hot over or the rising heat sets the smoke detector off. I've had to turn it on for about half a minute before opening the oven to keep the detector from going off. I've noticed some steam build up on the inside of the microwave, the door fogs up. Overall I'm very happy with it, installation was easy with 2 people getting it onto the template on the wall. Pay attention to the venting, if it is recirculated Vs inside or outside venting you will most likely have to turn the fan from an outside venting position to the inside. A few simple screws, a 90 degree turn and you're good to go.

I bought this microwave not realizing that the control panel was the same color as the front door. You can barely see the numbers, etc with all the lights on and not At ALL any other time. Day time or whatever. If it hadn't been mounted over the stove I would have taken it back to store. The light on the stove is useless. You can't see at all to cook. Right now I have a lamp shinning on the burners. I have ordered brighter lights to put in and hopefully I will be able to see to cook. I have never had this kind of problem before and am very disappointed that I am stuck with this appliance.

Comments about GE 1.7 Cu. Ft. Slate Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:
Works very well, but the surface of the key board is too shinny. this in conjunction with light lettering makes a tough for the elderly t to see which buttons to push for operation.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Replaced an old GE microwave that was 14 years old. Hope this one last as long. Performs as expected. Fit on the brackets from the microwave I replaced. The only downside so far is the rather large and, according to my wife, ugly "GE" logo on the front of the microwave.

Bought in December 2016. Love the microwave and the features provided
from Caldwell, Idaho, Estados Unidos
I bought this days ago and I'm so happy that i did
great price and features
I love everything about this microwave except the display/numbers are dark/dim and I can't see my options unless I turn on the light in the kitchen. This tends to be an issue for me when I just want to warm up a cup of tea or something and I don't want to turn on the lights or find my reading glasses. it's probably not an issue for all the young healthy eyes out there.
Nice look and feel

This microwave has a nice clean look to it. I would have preferred more preset keys like defrost for chicken and beef.
Does the job
from Elburn, IL, United States
Needed a replacement over the range microwave. Liked the features with this one. It works well. The only complaints are cosmetic. I would prefer a matte finish or one that does not show fingerprints. The LED lights are an odd color, blue would be better since most of our other electronics have this. The logo could blend in better.

This is my 3rd GE Microwave. The 1st lasted 9 yrs, the 2nd 7 yrs and hoping this one lasts longer. Very happy with its looks and performance. Heating time is quick and easy. Love the extensive option buttons. Only complaint is the writing could be a little larger .Was easy to install since my last unit had same exact dimensions. This unit has the looks and feel of a quality product. Have always been a fan of GE products.
