My last microwave that died recently was an LG. It beeped, but it wasn't monotone, it played a little 10-note tune. What was notable about it was there was no numbered keypad, just a left and right arrow to add and reduce the time. Pushing "start" while it was on would add 30 seconds. It took a little getting used to, but when I thought about it I realized I almost never used the numbers from 1-8; I almost exclusively just hit 9, 9 for 99 seconds and hit "start," then added 30 seconds as necessary.

My current one has a keypad but it does the "quick start" thing from 1-6. I almost never microwave anything longer than 6 minutes, so it's one-button operation most of the time.
