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.

Nightmare to install
from Northborough, MA, United States
I have not rated performance because I just got it, but it's a microwave oven, and just about any decent brand should be capable of what I need. I chose this GE because of high ratings but was very wary of the installation problems experienced by other customers. The installation instructions were not at all clear, making installation very difficult, and I'm a mechanical engineer. It was bad enough that I got to a point where I thought it would not fit and was on the verge of removing/returning it and then had a great deal of difficulty getting getting the top screws in. I would never recommend any GE microwave to a friend based on the installation problems I had. The other brand microwave I replaced had a completely different installation method and looked like it was a snap to install.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Updated features that my older model didn't have!

I bought this in early December, and I'm so happy I did!!!

I bought the same model 18 months ago and did not work more. The repair cost was more than to buy a new one.

We had one before, G.E microwaves are the best microwaves available at that price
from Independence, MO, United States
Really love the price of this. Great options and looks. Very glad we bought this one
from Littleton, CO
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.

hope it lasts longer
from Salt Lake City, UT, United States
I just purchased this microwave. Hoping it lasts longer than 2 years like the last one.
