Cons:Display failed surprisingly quickly - not covered by warranty.
The LED display on my Sharp R-1214 Microwave started failing within the 2nd year and went completely dark/unreadable by the end of year 3, rendering the unit nearly useless. This relatively expensive unit was manufactured in September 2003. Sharp's initial response is that I'm on my own, but I intend to follow up with them. This is an unacceptable defect - LEDs should easily last many years. I'd be interested in hearing from others with the same problem - firstname.lastname@example.org.
