I received this microwave as a gift two years ago. I had to make some adjustments on the cooking time as most recipies are for 700-900W units. Other than that, it has served me well until yesterday when I was heating a cup of water for tea and spaks flew out the back of it. Today, it is recycled material but after reading reviews on most other brands, I will replace it with the same make/model.

We purchased this microwave oven because a microwave we have had for eleven years died. It was another brand and we could not purchase another like unit because that model is no longer available. So we started searching for a similar size, our counter is small between the fridge and a cupboard. We wanted a similar wattage and made the rounds of the stores in the third largest city in the state of Illinois. We thought after all of that effort we had found a good replacement. We are disappointed. It met the size and wattage requirement and had a 'new' Inverter technology which we were told would be great for us. It doesn't even pop popcorn worth a darn. With our old unit we hit "Popcorn' and chose 'Regular' or 'Snack' size and it did a beautiful job. We understood that it used "Sensor" technology. This Panasonic has three different ounce sizes to choose from, none of which exactly fit "Orville's snack size, and I can't get a descent popped bag. I've tried modifing the time using the plus and minus capability but to no good results. My wife is very unhappy that it is hard to see what is going on in the oven while heating something because the light in the oven is on the side near the front and would be much better placed near the rear so it would light what is rotating on the table and not glare in your eyes. She is really unhappy that when you open the door to check on something being heated the light does not stay on and you are not able to see to stir your soup or if it is boiling over. And if it has, you can't see very well to clean up the mess. We sure miss our old microwave!

We purchased mIcrowave Model nn-sn651W in Dec. of 2014 and today, June, 2016 it has stopped working. We are a retired couple and don't even use it every day. I know things do not last like they used to, but certainly feel it should be more than this. I called the chat line who, at the beginning, said they would be glad to help. The only 'help; they gave was the name of a repair service place near us. I am sure the cost just to look it at would not be worth it. Will definitely not buy another Panasonic!!!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
We chose Panasonic because of its Inverter Technology, and this model for its price and familiar look. The controlling panel seemed less intimidating to switch over from our old one, over ten years old from another company. This new one is smaller and lighter with the same interior space. It is more powerful and yet quieter during the operation. The door opens and closes very smoothly and quieter. We also like softer and shorter beeps better than the older oneâ€™s piercing longer beeps. If it had a silencer setting, we would like it better. Also no light when the door is opened is more desirable. Over all we are very satisfied with it.

Comments about Panasonic White 1.2 Cu. Ft. Microwave Oven:
Great for everyday use
Miss the light coming on when door is opened.
from Clinton, OH, USA
A step backwards in the evolution. Our 25 year old microwave just died and the light feature is missed. Otherwise happy with product.

Good White Microwave
from Sandy Eggo, CA
It's hard to find a white microwave these days, so I was happy to find this one. The inverter works great, and the food heats very evenly. Having to hit the button repeatedly to select your power level is a little odd, but you get used to it quick. I really love the Sensor Reheat feature. No matter what you're heating, you press one button and your food comes out nice and hot, and not dried out. I don't care that the light doesn't come on when you open the door; I don't microwave in the dark. The beep is a normal volume too. I drop down one star because this model has been reported to have door problems, and mine is already making a "thunk" when you open it. We shall see...
Very Smart Microwave Oven
from Prescott, AZ, USA
The auto sensing feature and the inverter technology both work well and as advertised, for more precise and even cooking. The quick minutes control is very handy, gets me started with fewer button presses. I would like to have had the ability to add to cooking time on the fly, as a previously owned product allowed. However this is less important to me than the aforementioned features of this one.
Good overall. Rated highly. Good value!

About Me Casual Cook
This is our 2nd one. The 1st one lasted only a few years. Tried to replace it but it was out of stock. Bought the GE brand instead and returned it (noisy, motor noise, light stayed when door was opened, very noisy tinny sounding door, lower quality, cooked much slower).So happy to have another Panasonic
