    surface light - poor design

    The so-called surface light on my JVM 1540SP1SS microwave does NOT light the surface. Bad design - it lights only the very back of the range below. I wish I had thought to look for the light before I purchased the microwave.

    Great Product!

    This microwave is very good. It heats the food quickly and evenly. The vents works very well and its easy to clean.

    Sleek

    Looks great in my kitchen! I have the stainless steel. This microwave is very sleek. I love that it has a rack inside so you can heat up two plates at once if you desire.

    Cheap quality compared to previous similar GE microwave

    We really liked the same-priced version of this GE microwave we bought 2 1/2 years earlier. Unfortunately, that GE microwave broke after only 2 1/2 years (needed a $400 repair job for a $279 microwave). We were disappointed the previous model broke so quickly (only 2 of us adults use it, so there are no kids messing with is).

    We bought the 2012 almost identical model and price as our previous GE microwave. What a drop-off in quality. The door hangs a little loose and has to be pushed upward when closing to close right. It's at least twice as noisy as the previous microwave. The light inside is only half as bright. It takes a little longer to cook things. And, it looks cheaper than the previous similarly-priced model.

    Overall, we are disappointed in our GE microwaves. Our former one was great -- but broke down after only 2 1/2 years. The current similar model we now have is a cheap quality product.
