Buy with caution. This is not a economical microwave, it is a cheap microwave. Most of the unit is plastic or very thin metal and does not have a solid feel - I'm not really expecting it to last long. I am disappointed with what could be good features are under designed. The cooking surface light is "night-light" bright and the fan is rather noisy on both high and low settings and the display LED does not seem to match the other GE appliances I have, the numbers are small and hard to read. I was looking for a solid "basic" microwave with decent features #do not really need/use features other than basic cooking, defrosting, cooking vent and surface light# and this unit is really underwhelming. I'm also a bit dissapointed that given it is 1.7 CF unit they did not make it "shorter". The door is curves down in the middle taking up some height from the cook top and it seems odd that the unit I replaced #1.9 CF# has the same physical footprint #again a missed opportunity#. Why even make a 1.7 or 1.5 if they are the same size. I was hoping for a solid unit with basic features but got a cheap unit with marginal features.

affordable but great microwave
from Potomac, MD
The black GE JVM1740DPBB over the range microwave is a good buy with features you regularly need in the kitchen. The hidden ventilation vents make it looked nice. The auto night light is a plus.the price is very affordable.
Quality has declined

While this microwave is fine, it is not the same as our old microwave with the same model number. We thought we were getting an identical replacement, but this one is made from lighter, cheaper materials. While it runs quietly, opening and closing the door cannot be done quietly. If we don't bang it shut, it doesn't operate properly. The controls display is enormous, apparently for the visually impaired. It's fine, but a disappointment compared to the previous version of the same model.
VERY EASY TO INSTALL
REPLACED ANOTHER OLDER GE MICROWAVE AND IT FIT THE BRACKETS AND THE HOLES. ONLY THING WAS THE VENT DID NOT LINE UP. SO HAVEING TO ADJUST AND USE SOME VENT TAPE TO CORRECT. vERY LIGHT. INSTALLED IT MYSELF. SO FAR SO GOOD.

Replaced 12-year old microwave with this comparable model. Nice, simple features and excellent value for the price.
Great for a Replacement Microwave
Comments about GE 1.7 Cu. Ft. Spacemaker Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:
Delivery people where great!
Very sleek microwave
We bought this microwave to replace one that was no longer working, and we are very happy with our decision to buy this one. It looks very sleek and the control buttons are large and easy to see.
This product has great features
from Madera, CA, USA
such as the light underneath you can set to turn on at night and off in the morning. Love the look of the microwave and it's so quiet. About the only downside would be when my husband and son were installing it, my son took off the plastic and it scratched when they were holding it up. Other than that it is a beautiful new look to my kitchen.
Solid and beautiful
from San Diego, CA, USA
This microwave is very solid and dependable. We have 4 kids that use it all day long. It is great to have it mounted above the stove for easy and central access. The turn table is a little slow for my liking. The nightlight feature is terrific as it automatically turns on and off based on how I program it. I love this feature.
I love the look of this
from Southern California
This is exactly what I wanted. Easy to use without unnecessary bells and whistles.
