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.

Great value and options. It was somewhat easy to install. It replaced a GE microwave that was 20 yrs old. The instructions were easy to follow and the support bracket was the hardest thing to install . I will be happy if this one last 20 years.

Ideal replacement for 23 yr old GE microwave
Nice looking microwave with all the features we need. Pleasantly surprised by great price. So far, so good.
Too soon to tell, but so far so good!

Quiet. Needed a second pair of hands to DIY install it due to the awkwardness and weight of the microwave. Quieter than my previous microwave. Glad it's in white (which is also less expensive than the "stainless" versions. Not many out white microwaves out there. This model was rated among the highest in Consumer Reports, too. So, I lucked out overall. Hope it lasts longer than the typical over the range microwave. If I had to do it over, I would have designed my kitchen to house a shelf microwave--they are spprox. 1/3 less expensive!
Abt delivery man did an excellent job installing microwave.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my new over-the-range microwave. Perfect size and has all the options I need to take care of my cooking needs. This one is a bit smaller in overall size than several I had looked at which is exactly what I was looking for as it gives me more free space in using my range cooktop. Even my neighbor commented on how much she liked it compared to hers. Great planning on the part of GE to design one of this size and still provide all the options. The only option that I had on my old counter top microwave that this one does not have is one for cooking vegetables either fresh or frozen and my new one does not have those options but I love the rest of it so much I can easily learn a new way to cook my veggies. This model has nice clean lines to it and I really like the design of where the vented air comes out. SIMPLY...A VERY NICE MICROWAVE!!
I PURCHASED THIS ITEM ABOUT TWO WEEKS AGO,AND WE JUST LOVE IT SO WE WENT AND UPDATED THE STOVE AND THE ICE BOX TO.OUR KITCHEN IS JUST BEAUTIFUL...
Easy to install

I just purchased this microwave oven, so this is a review of installation and features. There were a few reviews stating this oven is hard to install. I have some experience in DIY and a basic set of tools, and it was an easy two man job that took one hour. This was a replacement of another brand and I did have the venting already in. I still had to perform all other steps, and it was very easy and straightforward. If you aren't handy, pay someone to put it in. The features are fine for my family, we just heat food up and use the "add 30 seconds" button and the handle, that's about it. For the price it has plenty of features and gets food hot. What else is there to say?
