Opinions on microwave drawer??

A contractor this weekend told us about a microwave drawer - a microwave that's mounted in a base cabinet, and the opening is on top, rather than on the side like all other types.

I'm really intrigued because:
1. Range microwaves get greasy from stove splatter no matter how often they're cleaned
2. Would save on counter space
3. Can't do prep work under my existing under-the-wall-cabinet unit 'cause it sticks out so far

Anyone have experience with this microwave drawer? I found one on Sharp's site: www.sharpusa.com/ForHome/HomeAppliances/MicrowaveDrawerOvens/KB6001NS.aspx

Thx!
