GE mid-size microwave: nay, or maybe yea?

Does anyone have anything really terrible to say about GE microwave model JES1142 SJ or a similar, recent-ish model? It's an approx 1 cu ft, 1000W countertop model with stainless exterior.

Basically I got fed up trying to research a fairly inexpensive appliance and just liked what I saw in the store - size, shape, finish, feel/weight, etc. I'm kind of assuming a few factories make them all and it really doesn't matter that much within a given price range anyway?

All I really want it for is heating/reheating food for one to a few, maybe a little defrosting, and the minor miscellanous stuff like boiling cups of water, melting butter, chocolate, etc, etc. Mostly I just don't want it to be likely to die on me within a few years. Things like "convenience" of controls is irrelevant to me unless something's really bizarre.

Thanks.
