Mine is still working great!  Makes wonderful coffee and is still at the desired temp and time.  The power switch on my machine has started to wear out a bit, so I will have to call Delonghi about that.  Other than that one small thing, no problems whatsoever.

Just a heads up if anyone decides to buy on Amazon - the $63.99 price is from an outside vendor.  Look at the "other new" section and for $6 more you can purchase with fulfillment by Amazon.  With the spotty reputation (sorry, I call it like I see it) the $6 might be worth it in case a return is required - Amazon customer service is "amazing" (easy returns, call tags issued so no freight hassles, etc.) but only if the fulfillment is through Amazon, else you are left to deal with who ever is selling these DeLongi close-outs.

 
I chew coffee beans with my teeth while gargling with 195 F water to enjoy coffee. What is this "coffee brewing" device you speak of?

Since my Capresso H2O Kettle died at age 9 months, I had a choice to make. Spend the $55 Christmas
gift on either:
1) a Hario kettle and keep brewing Chemex on the range. (How do you know when a Hario boils anyway?)
2) Delonghi DCM900 and put the Chemex up for a while.  
3) Get another H2O. The pour is pretty good for an over-top.

I chose the DCM900. I hope it works out for a few months.
I wonder if Clay's is still working?

Well, mine is still going strong.  The top of the plastic power switch broke off, so mine has to be unplugged to power off (need to call DeLonghi on that), but that has been my only issue.

After reading this thread I ordered one of these for $60 through Amazon (from "Todays Concept"). It will replace my aging Cuisinart thermal carafe coffee maker.

I am not overjoyed about the glass carafe and hot plate, but its $60! I typically brew and consume right away, so I am hoping its not a huge deal. Also, if I want to keep the coffee longer, I can always transfer it to my Cuisinart thermal carafe.

How hot is the hot plate? Has anyone noticed it scorching the coffee during the brew process? I'd think not since it seems to be a quick brewer but I'd much prefer a thermal version. Has anyone consider a little pad to elevate the carafe from direct contact with the hot plate?

 The unit is still doing fine, just haven't been on this board in a while.  Note though, I make coffee daily in a commercial Bunn machine at the house.  This Bunn unit is what I USE daily.  The DeLonghi is at a weekend home so it is used much, much less.  It was a good investment for use.  There we went from making French press to this unit.  It's just more convenient.

The hot plate is no more warm than any other coffee maker I have used in the past.  Since it only takes this maker 6.5-7 minutes to brew a complete pot, there is really no time to "scorch" the coffee.  I transfer the coffee to my thermal carafe immediately after the brewing process is complete.

I got the unit a couple of days ago, and all is well. Yes, it does make hot water (203F on my Raytec).
Warming plate is 300F, and it keeps the pot at 165F. No scorching.

I've been dumping 65 grams of full city PNG flats into the (unmodified for expresso) Virtruoso set at 18. When the grinding is finished, the coffee goes into a Melitta #4, inside the included gold filter, add 45 ounces of filtered water, and hit the switch.

I must say, it tastes very close to my Chemex efforts, only less work. If it outlasts my Capresso H2O kettle
(10 months), I'll be happy..
