Customer Reviews and Scores
The Sharp R- 1406 has been rated 4.3 out of 5 by 66 Amazon customers which undoubtedly is a good score for an oven designed for the regular cooking. Priced at a paltry $222.49, this microwave offers more than expected and we can declare this from the testimonies of several satisfied customers.
Meanwhile, while going through the customer reviews, we have come across a few let downs as well. While some of the customers seem to have been having issues with the motor (it stops working after a being used for a year or slightly more), others have been facing problems with the built- the metal on the right side of the oven is bowed out; the right side hangs down more than the left side, and also the back is longer than the front.But, beholding the price and the other essential features, we can disregard these trivial issues completely.
So, to conclude, the Sharp R- 1406 is a great piece of over the range microwave. We especially eulogize the sturdy metal frame that this machine features which is rare in most machines of its kind. The final verdict can be accepted as a “go-for-it”.
