    I have one, and we love it! I think we drink less coffee than when we had a full pot sitting here, but it really tastes better. We often use the reusable cup with the little paper filters. So far, no problems with our machine, but we use filtered water from the refrigerator, and also have a water softener.

    We have one at work. It is nice when I am cold, I get a fresh cup of coffee every time. (To use their special filter, you still need special ground coffee.) I would like to have one at home but hubby is a little cheap.

    My daughter recently gave us one. The prepackaged k-cups are too strong for my husband & I, so I hit the large cup button twice & it makes 2 perfect cups of coffee for us. I order the k-cups from Amazon.com and it is cheaper than buying retail. No shipping or tax is charged for orders over $25.

    l had one that died 22 days AFTER the warranty expired. The company pretty much told me 'tough luck'.....back to my old reliable Farberware perk.

    We have had a Kuereg for about maybe 6 years. When they came out with a bigger and better one, we put the first one in our lake house. I don't drink coffee so it was perfect for my DH who does. I was making tea with it, but got tired of getting coffee taste with it. Sometimes he would forget to remove the used cup- yuck! So i went back to boiling water on the stove. But we love our Kureg. My DD bought one too and loves hers.

    DD has a Keurig so we can all have our fave beverages. She has found the K-cups at TJMaxx and Marshall's for a great price, too.

    I have used the Keurig at friends house before but wouldn't buy one for my house. I like my coffee hot and refill my cup as needed to keep it that way. Cannot do that with Keurig. Guess we drink enough coffee at our house that it just isn't practical for us. SeEms pretty expensive to buy it as well. So no plans to ever buy one.

    We have one because my husband drinks coffee and I don't. He finds he drinks much less coffee this way...doesn't feel obligated to drink the whole pot like he did with the old machine. If you use your 20% coupons from Bed Bath & Beyond, you can save a few $$ on the pods. We even bought the smaller models for our kids' dorm rooms.

    I found that I have to add twice as much coffee in the little brew cup as I would when making a larger quantity of coffee.
    I have to use 2 scoops in the brewer container for one good cup of coffee......but I do use it anyway......

    I personally use the K-cup that you can fill and like it better than the expensive ones.
