First GE over the range microwave 1986. Second 2007, 21 years. Now 2016, 9 years. All same line and size. Worked well before so sticking with it. But I hope the lifetimes for decent, not heavy use, is not still going down. 1) Inside much darker; prefer lighter walls making food easier to monitor. 2) First model had a pull-out louver on the bottom to direct vapors from stove front burners as well as rear burners to be exhausted. Second model did not have the spring loaded louvers, but installers were able to transfer them to it. Third (current) model has contoured base shaped differently. The original GE louvers cannot be attached. Big disappointment. Models do have a higher (Boost) exhaust fan speed. Much appreciated. 3) Previous model had quick one push cook control 1-6 minutes. New one only 1-5 minutes. I would prefer whole keypad, 1-9 minutes, had one button cook capability. "Add 30 seconds one button" is good aid. Four Stars vice five stars simply because haven't yet put the microwave unit use beyond basic. So lack of own experience to rate more completely, but no problems are apparent.

Do not buy the JVM7195DK microwave. I bought two of these microwaves to replace two older GE microwaves which had both failed after 9 years of use. Both of the new microwaves function as expected. However, the glass plate does not stay on its spindle. After a 1/2 turn it slips off track and stops rotating. It appears that the problem lies with the plate support. There is a bezel on each wheel of the plate support and that bezel should ride the slope of the plate depression. The wheels are reversed and consequently, the square edge of the wheel rides the slope, the wheels being spread too wide causes the support to ride up the slope of the well, which causes the glass plate to ride too high and slip off its spindle. Design error, manufacturing error? In any case, the microwave is unusable unless you can tolerate hot spots in your food. I went to the store from which I bought these microwaves and looked at their floor model. Its plate support is the same as on my units. I suspect this is a problem with every model shipped. By the way, I tried using the plate support from my old microwave in the new microwave. The plate stayed on the spindle however, the old plate support is too small to keep the plate stable when you put weight on the edge of the plate. So, the problem is definitely the plate support. I'm giving this 1 star with the hope that GE will offer a reasonable and prompt solution to this problem. Until you read otherwise, you might consider avoiding this model.

This was the only microwave that I could buy due to the area that it could fit in. Even though it was the only one I could buy, I am very happy that I did.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Going from a 30 year old microwave to a new one is so terrific. All the features are almost overwhelming. Never had a breakdown of my original GE microwave, so never a doubt of which brand of appliances to purchase

This is a great microwave. It has melt options, reheat options and so much more. I have the slate color and it looks so nice. We purchased a fridge, stove, dishwasher and microwave at the same time. I'm Very happy with all of them.

I owned the model that this microwave replaced and the wattage went from 1200 to 1000, the materials were skimped on, the controls are less responsive and no well placed. Even installation required me finding a smaller thread size for the top right support.
from Hagerstown, IN
Love it because it is slate outside and matches all my other new appliances.
Replaced an outgoing 12 year old unit.
