Positive Product Points

Cheap, fairly quick, attractive finish in the black/stainless steel version, does the job.

Negative Product Points

Low-ish temperature (about 150F) on brew, narrow spout.

Detailed Commentary

Like other reviewers have said, the spout on this little machine isn't the best.  However, I've never seen another 4-cup brewer with a larger one, so I think it's fairly standard.  Just pour slowly and you won't experience any spills.  

It looks nice on the counter and doesn't take up a lot of space, but this is definitely a model that really does only the minimum.  The brew on mine is not full-flavored as the temperature of extraction registers at about 150F.  It can get warmer after sitting on the hot plate of course, but the actual _drip_ temperature was about 150F for me.  

I purchased this as a stop-gap measure between my last machine which I loved and finally broke and my next one (which I plan to spend a chunk of change on but can't afford quite yet).  The bottom line is that this machine will get the job done, but don't expect a great cup out of it.

Buying Experience

Amazon.com--great service as usual.
