Bought this microwave a few weeks back. It's very spacious. It has plenty of space inside for 2 lbs of frozen chicken breasts. The controls are easy, despite a lack of specific information pertaining to them in the user manual (but who reads those things anyway?). The lack of distinct defrost settings for types of frozen foods is disappointing. The easiest way to defrost is by weight, but some of the foods come out starting to cook, while others are still slightly frozen. And that's after weighing them on a food scale before defrosting. All the other presets for reheating and heating (pizza, beverages, plates of food, soup, etc.) work very well. The only complaint is that beverages sometimes come out a little cooler than I like, but an extra 10 seconds always works. I don't use the microwave to cook, only defrost and reheat, so I can't say exactly how good it is a cooking anything other than oatmeal. In terms of looks, this microwave isn't going to win any beauty contests. It's not just not pretty, I find it a little ugly. But for the price and the fact it somewhat matched my stove, refrigerator, and dishwasher, it's worth it. It's not like I'm going to invite people over to see how it looks or stare at it for hours on end as an inspiration in design. It works. That's all that matters.

I've had my microwave 2 months now, and I am generally satisfied with it. I like the fact that the control panel is white with black letters and is easy for me to read, but it takes a lot of force to push the buttons compared to my old microwave. I have to push with extra pressure, something I definitely don't like. I'm not weak, but I do have an arthritic thumb. As far as the timer goes, it should be down at the bottom by the cancel and start buttons. On several occasions I have pressed the "timer button" when I meant to press the "cook time" button, and then I'm left wondering why the oven didn't start. The "timer button" is definitely in an inconvenient place. I love the bright surface light. It lights up my stovetop beautifully! I also love the "add 30 secs." and "Express Cook" feature. I went to check the vent filter the other day and found it cheaply made. I put my finger through it by the tab as I was trying to replace it. Very frustrating. All in all, I will learn to live with the differences in my new microwave and adapt to the features, but I will probably not recomment this GE to a friend.

Over Stove Microwave
The paper layouts for hole locations needs better instructions for the top bolts. my holes ended up off by 1/4 inch due to it having a line that says wall that is 1/4 inch from edge of layout. Was able to redrill holes where needed. Definitely easy to install.
Oven Cavity Light Bulb Issues
You have to remove the vent grill above the oven cavity to replace the interior light bulb. I removed the two screws, that hold the grille in place, but I CANNOT get the grille off ! Something else appears to be holding it in place, so I CAN'T CHANGE THE BULB ! Look for a model where you can change the interior bulb from the INSIDE !!
