I studied via Consumer Reports and this was what we needed as we didn't use all the features on the oven we were replacing. The average life of a microwave is 8 years but the old GE was installed in 2003. This confirmed the durability and report that CR had reported. I installed it myself and I am not a handyman genius. However, I was patient in making my measurements which turned out to be just right. The old bracket had to be replaced with the new one and it wasn't difficult; although the previous installer did me no favors so I did have to do some workaround. I used the bottom bracket's center V notch as the reference point to make pencil lines on the wall and underneath the overhead cabinet shelf so I could take the template measurements and measure from the center overhead. I also double checked by measuring the new microwave points of contact etc. I added 3/8 inches to the measurement from the back wall to the front where the holes were for the overhead bolts. Perfect! It was easy to rotate the fan so that the vent was into the room. I drilled a 1 1/2 inch hole for the power cord instead of the 2 inch and it was fine. I won't go into how the previous installer made it more of a challenge but I didn't have to call GE for help. It just took some common sense and patience. I also installed the charcoal filter before hanging the microwave. Hope this helps someone. You can do it even if the cabinet isn't like one of the options in the directions.

The microwave was fine, but arrived with a sizable dent in the side.

Comments about GE White Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:
I bought this months ago and it already stopped working. This was my second replacement when the first one I bought only lasted a few month and went out. Thought this would have at least lasted a year. I would not recommend this product. It was an inconvenience the first time and now a second. Will look at other brands this time around.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Very efficient, highly rated microwave. Looks good and is reasonably intuitive to operate. One issue: Opening the door takes a hard pull that one must get used to. Closing the door makes quite a bit of noise. Otherwise, we are pleased.

Seems to work well
from Maryland, United States
Replaced a 10 year old GE microwave. Seems to work well, but was a slight pain to install as the template did not match up. Good overall so far.
