    We purchased NN-SD681S for my 75 yo mom. Because she is a bit of a technophobe, we tested the unit in our kitchen. After more than a month of daily use, we were very happy with this oven. It very powerful and also compact - and was a perfect fit for the cutout in my mom's kitchen. Mom installed the oven in Dec 2011 and she loves it! The display is bright blue and easy for her to read. The stainless steel is brushed steel so it does not show fingerprints or smudges. The dial is more intuitive than the key pad. The reheat works beautifully - perfectly and automatically reheating leftovers without cold or overcooked spots. Best microwave we've ever used.

    So here is the thing: The oven looks great, has plenty of room, is SO much lighter than the 19 year old model this replaced, and is fairly quiet. I especially like the fact that the interior light is only on when the oven is in use - not when the door is open. This is good because I find it helpful to leave the door open after use to air out steam and odors. And, unlike our previous oven, now the light won't stay on!
    BUT - Two things:
    First, when I used the oven to re-heat half an acorn squash in a glass pan covered with plastic wrap, the butter in the center of the squash just would not melt. Not after several minutes of microwaving....the squash became hot, though there were cold spots, but the butter took more than several minutes to melt. This made no sense.
    Second, I am not so sure this oven doesn't draw more power than advertised. We have the oven plugged into a power strip for safety reasons. Our old oven was also in the power strip. The old oven never once tripped the power strip. However, this oven has done so several times already.... Obviously this is troubling but it hasn't happened the last few times we used it. I'm hoping it was just an aberration....but like I said, the jury is still out on this one.

      very happy with unit ,really cool looking blue display ,just hope it does not fail, I read some reports on failures plus my niece had her's fixed ,then it failed again ,she then threw it out . I hope the issues were taken care of ,because I really love this unit. The price was too high ,but I really wanted it...You know how that goes,just take out the plastic,and pay the bill later.

                Still trying to figure out all the features but I will say that I've never had a microwave that worked so well to heat leftovers and melt butter. Everything evenly cooked, no stirring needed and not a whole lot of thought to get that far.

                    I love the inverter feature. It's so nice to have items cook evenly instead of on and off. We've had it a few weeks and are very happy with its performance. I haven't needed to call customer service at all for support.

                      I knew it had no light when the door opened based on some other reviews, but thought it would be no problem. It is. You can not see the hot container to grab it well. You can not look at the cooked food to see it before taking it out. The light is too poor to see the food during cooking. And it makes cleaning the inside hard because you can not see the inside. Have to use a flash light to clean inside. Anyone that says it will save electricity, I would pay the dollar or two it would save over a year. Other than this problem it seems to a good product. Well have to see how long it last.

                                  like the continuous, proportional power capability of the inverter technology employed in this design. really makes melting butter and chocolate a lot less "dramatic" than in duty-cycle controlled power systems. I think the user controls could be easier to use. I'll soon get use to them, but at the moment I'm missing some of the one-touch functions of my old microwave oven.
