Positive Product Points

Hot coffee.

Negative Product Points

Drip overflow.
Practically unreadable digital clock.
Hard to clean.

Detailed Commentary

I got this at Sears for $17 and now I know why.  Overflow at the drip onto the carafe resulted in spattering, noisy coffee making.  Very hard to clean and the top part remains very wet for a long time resulting in cold, clammy water the next day when you swing the filter holder out to make a new pot of coffee.
Very poorly designed digital clock that is not backlit making it unreadable at counter level.
The #4 filter has to be pushed down very hard to fit the holder so it will shut.
I don't understand the high review for this thing.

Buying Experience

Got it at Sears off the shelf.
