Donot turn off!
Works ok, but donot turn off because you have no idea what the display says, the lights in timer goes. I have had this for many years, it has still kept working, though after a time turned off once turned back on I can not see display. Though have to guess what the timer is and count. You cannot see how much time it has left.
Good performance coupled with poor quality control and user friendliness
We bought a Sharp R30A0W microwave recently to replace a 6 year old Samsung microwave (comparable power and size) as it had started to rust internally.
The first Sharp unit we received had to be returned due to a spiral piece of white plastic from the door was sandwiched inside the plastic window. With the second Sharp unit we received, the plastic control panel doesn't line up well with the metal body of the microwave. Although we can live with this, I must say Sharp's quality control has dropped considerably compared to other Sharp product...s we have bought in the past. The performance of the microwave seems to be good and it runs quietly but the light inside the microwave is too dim, probably due to the inside of the microwave being dark grey instead of white. Sharp should have used a brighter light or made the inside of the microwave a lighter colour. Another issue is that there is no 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-0 number keypad on the microwave as you only have 10min-1min-10sec keys. Also, before programming in a cooking time you have to select the power level every time which can be very annoying. Coming from a microwave with a traditional key pad and one that remembers the power level, the Sharp microwave isn't that user friendly. Looks like no more Samsung or Sharp microwaves in the future for us!
Wonderful and reliable
This microwave was a purchase after we'd had two others fail. With two young children it's a dream to heat milk evenly. Unlike some other models it's easy to function and I love the QuickStart option. Operation is quiet in comparison to the Omega, Panasonic and Russell Hobbs versions we've had previously.
