Bottom Line: Dont use it on a counter that stains, and definitley be prepared for the cup  to leap out of your cars cupholder into your lap.
Positive Product Points

looks good, small footprint, makes decent cup when it works ok

Negative Product Points

water resevoir poorly designed. the auto stop mechanism is finicky, the travel cup is top heavy and unstable. unsuitable for using in a standard automotive cupholder

Detailed Commentary

So I spotted this unit at the second hand store cheap with the cup included. As far as I can tell you need the cup to make it work. This machine is finicky as hell. It is like playing the lotto every morning to see if you get a good cup.
Filling the resevoir is difficult becaus it is a weird shape resulting in water splashing out during this early morning ritual. The cup must be placed perfectly under the basket to open the drip stopper valve  otherwise the coffee will spill out over the counter
It  makes a quick hot cup of coffee which will stay warm for a couple of hrs in the factory supplied cup. there is  a clock and timer, is a sleek looking unit and isnt obtusivly loud. The cup has a stopper lid that seals it so it wont spill at all when closed.
The cup is wider at the top than the bottom making it very unstable. It has fallen out of my cars cup holder multiple time resulting in me arriving at work with large cofffee stains on my pants.

it is necessary to review the cup as well as the machine because the machine doesnt work without the supplied cup without modifications.

Buying Experience

Salvation Army, I assume  the original owner had enough of coffee spilling out of the machine onto the counter and out of the cup onto their lap or chest.
