I purchased this Frigidaire Microwave because this model had all the features that I wanted, and I thought the price was right.
I didn't know that the timer would beep 3 times every 5 seconds when done, and keep beeping until stopped. That means if I'm busy doing something else, I have to stop what I'm doing and go turn it off. Very annoying. If I had known about this before, I would not have bought it.
Also, the easy set function took a little time to get used to. If you hesitate a fraction of a second after entering a number (1-6), the timer starts for the number of minutes for that number. For example, if I want to enter 45 seconds, I'd better be quick in entering the number 5 or it starts running for 4 minutes. All in all, the Frigidaire microwave is OK and works well, but because of that persistent timer, I wouldn't recommend it.
