Panasonic 1.6 cu ft Genius Prestige Microwave
I bought this model about 5 or 6 years ago and it's still going strong! It has gotten louder over this time but nothing too annoying. Would buy the same model again if mine dies.

We bought this item a few years ago. After 2.5 years the door would not open. Oh ya, out of warranty now. It cost $75.00 service for the licensed Panasonic repair depot to get the door open. Now 8 months later the clock and display are not working. We can only cook using the 1 minute incremental setting button and that only allows you to set up to 10 minutes, then we have to set again. When the is oven is finally dead (probably soon) we will not buy another Panasonic brand.

Not worth the $$
Bought this 3 years ago. Worked fine until now. It looks modern and has the nice dial to set the time.Stainless steel and looks neat. It is slightly on the larger side. However it stopped working now. The controller seems to be defective. I had another cheaper one for more than 8 year without a problem before I bought this when upgraded my kitchen. So this is not worth the extra$$

Does the job but confusing
This microwave does the job but all the "extras" are confusing - we have had it for a few months and I still get confused on how to do certain things that it supposedly does. I also don't find the defrost mechanism that is supposed to know when the food is defrosted, actually works well. It is HUGE so make sure it fits your space. Simpler = better in this case.

Good looking but not too reliable.
I purchase this 3 years ago, its modern and nice looking really fit my kitchen.
comes with 2 years labor and parts warranty, but unfortunately this is the third year I have it, it does not work anymore. It starts for about 5 secs and shuts off. Then I unplug it and put it back on, then another 5 secs of cooking shuts off again.
I like it so much because even after 3 years it is still trendy, but strongly suggest to buy extend warranty for it.
