I used to fix electronics at a store that sold Panasonic, the "inverter" models were just being rolled out when I left there. I remember the warnings on shock hazard to the technician on those models was pretty serious because of the stored voltage.........not that a conventional microwave doesn't store a lot of voltage too (around 5KV if I remember correctly) but for some reason there were extra warnings about the inverter models. There were a few duds right from the getgto but I think they've refined them quite a bit over the years.

At the time they were notably lighter although the ones I was fixing at the time were probably older and heavier built to start with.

I'm not sure what we have at home right now, I want to say GE maybe. It replaced my old Panasonic from the early 90s which is still working, just relocated to the bar in the basement. We got the current one as a wedding gift. Had it 2+ years and so far I'm happy with it. I think nowadays you get what you pay for but with things like microwave ovens for the price of the cheaper ones you can't go too wrong with any of 'em. I like the ones with a carousel for more even cooking and it has to be big enough for a large plate, those are really my only two stipulations. Aside from the inverter models, the rest all operate on the same principle as they have for 50+ years!
