Comment:
Purchased the Panasonic NN-H965BF in December 2008 and it has been trouble free until it died last night (electronics failure). I find that life span acceptable for a low cost appliance. It has performed well and was easy to use. No problems with the latch that other reviewers reported. Given that a repair will likely be cost prohibitive, I will be buying another of the same model...I was actually surprised that the model number hasn't changed after all these years.

Comment:
I really liked this microwave! But the door latch is broken and it would cost too much to fix it. Other reviewers have noted the same problem. It's not worth fixing because it will happen again. It's such a waste of money and materials.
