Bottom Line: Poor quality construction, electronics bells and whistles doesnt work well, fair brewing results,
Positive Product Points

Easy to use. Alot of features. My favorite is the variable temp hot plate. Comes w/ a swiss gold filter which is nice.

Negative Product Points

Flimsy plastic and the assembly is poor.  Unit would not work on it's third use until shaked by a red headed nanny.  It has worked flawlessy thus far.

Detailed Commentary

I like the unit so, so. I purchased it after reading all the positives reviews from another site. On the third use it would not brew, it came on and all but no brewing. I pressed the temp sensor, re-inserted the carafe, turned unit off and on, and so forth, took the water filter out and replaced w/ the filler, nothing. I shook it up a bit and it has worked ever since.
I can't really say it brews coffee any better than my free Godiva one I used for two years, honestly.
If you want good coffee roast your own beans, thats the biggest improvement you can do IMO.

Buying Experience

The buying experience w/ Amazon.com was a nightmare, I hate ordering from them since it's nearly impossible to acutaly speak to a human. The trick is finding a phone number on their website, you almost have to hack to find it. It took me about two weeks to get my order correct.

Three Month Followup

I wouldnt buy this again, (unable to change "buy again option above")overpriced. LED clock indicator cannot be read day or night unless you are two inches from it w/ emmetropia. Like i said you want good coffee? Roast your own beans and dive into some real flavor!
