Installing New OTR microwave oven

Our ten year old Sharp bit the dust and I'm shopping for a replacement.
Money's tight and I can go to about $300 but would rather stay below that.
Home Depot carries a variety of units but asks an extra $99 for the installation hardware. I'm looking at a Maytag or an LG microwave, each at $199.
The hardware would push this up to our limit. Does anyone have experience with my problem? Must I order the hardware or are there generic replacements available? Easily purchased brackets and such?

Thanks so much

Did your Sharp start running for 59 seconds at time, a common problem. If so, there is a cheap repair.....thought I would ask before you spend the money.

I have installed 2 and they both came with everything, maybe they want $99 to install. I would double check.

Have you checked prices online? We recently purchased a washer and dryer online saving almost $600. Our microwave/convection oven in the mh just bit the dust and I can't find anyone willing to even look at it to see if its repairable. Lowes has the identical model for 799+ 8.25% tax. I ordered it yesterday online for $494, no tax and no delivery cost.

I picked up a Maytag at Home Depot for $199, installation hardware included.
It had the best reviews, and it felt good when I put my hands on it/in it, etc.

I have had local dealer match best prices on line plus tax---so find a good deal and present it to them-----Lowes may not but it does not hurt to ask. We purchased every kitchen appliance recently that way from a local appliance dealer---delivered for the price---and yes the box should included every thing for install for the price you pay
