You know, the fun part about a new microwave is learning how long you can cook microwave popcorn.
Okay, on to bag number 3.

My microwave is popcorn challenged. Sometimes it takes 3 minutes, some others only half the corn will pop and some others I just get a scorched bag...
We make it the old fashioned way: Stove and popcorn pot. My next home appliance acquisition will be a hot air popcorn maker. No waste, they say.

Yeah, a couple people I know assure me that this is a typical learning curve for a new microwave. ;)

It is. Though I prefer a microwave popcorn popper and loose popcorn instead of bags. It's cheaper in the long run.

Yeah, and you really can't trust that

I guess I've had good luck with the microwave popcorn I've tried, but I've always stood by, listening carefully and then counting off seconds between pops to determine when to stop.

Yeah, same here. I don't think microwave popcorn is predictable enough to just set the timer and leave it. Generally speaking when it starts to pause a couple of seconds between pops I shut it off.

I have found it that predictable in past- but I don't mind leaving a variably-sized batch of unpopped kernels at the bottom of the bag, either.
