mine died too

 

I'll see how black and decker is at honoring their warranty

pretty blue leds

not working this lasted about 3 months

Consumer review by:

Don't bother

 

Other reviewers said theirs died around the 3 months mark. I should have listened because mine did too. Using my cheap $10 Rival coffee pot as a backup...amazed that the almost $50 MSRP Black and Decker brand can't hold up to a $10 plastic brand. Unhappy.

Newegg shipped quickly. Liked that it came with a coffee grinder

Bought it for Christmas and three months later it died with no warning

Consumer review by:

Well worth the Cash $$$

 

Other reviews talk about coffee not staying warm but seems like they didn't fully read the manual. There is a temp control and can be turned up to a higher temp to what the user would like.

Well built, programable 12 cup brew machine with carbon filter. Very classy design with controls for coffee brewing strength. Auto turn off after 2 hours and shows if the coffee is "fresh" (within 20 mins) or "not fresh" (over 20 mins old) Also has...

Like others have said, the blue LED is a bit bright...it could be used as a backup night light.. :-)

Questionable Reliability

 

Worked OK for 1 year despite most of the LEDs not working after about 3 months. I paid full price (probably msrp) at a different e-commerce site. I would have bought it from Newegg, but they weren't carrying it at the time. I'm quite disappointed that...

Lasted 1 year, which is more than some people got out of it. Not much I can really say about it. It made OK coffee and didn't take a ridiculous amount of time to do it. Comes with a replaceable water filter. Nice blue LEDs if you're into that

Mine quit 1 month after the 1 yr. warranty expired. Most of the blue LEDs, including the power LED, quit working within the first 3 months. This was pretty annoying because I couldn't tell if it was even on with the power LED not working. Coffee tasted...

Works Good When It Works

 

B&D want the cut off plug with the date code and seven and a half beans for return shipping. Also said that there's only a 1 year warranty on this, not 3 like the egg says. I will be sending in for a replacement but spending an extra eight bucks...

Makes good coffee, programable, looks good, carafe does not drip!, no drips on warmer either

Without a coffee maker now because it died within 2 weeks of use (about 45 days after I bought it). Powers on but will not brew or heat warmer ; Needed to put adjustable warming plate temp up to Max, but it did keep the coffee hot then

Consumer review by:

Looks Great but DOA on First one

 

Newegg replaced my first DOA unit in one week. Service is still the best from newegg. The only thing that I missed is the shipping that I paid to send back the DOA unit.

Stainless Steel looks nice. Indicator, programmability, and cool nice blue light

The first one is a DOA. Filter design looks cheap

don't get 1

 

looks cool, made good joe

Worked for 40 days so cannot return to NE, why is it you cannot find a basic coffie maker

Consumer review by:

Dead after 35 Days of use

 

Failed just outside of newegg's 30 day refund policy. Not worth the $ & effort to RMA to B&D. NOT RECCOMENDED.

Nice Modern Appearance

Worked for 35 days. Currently will not turn on

Consumer review by:

MMMMM Good Coffee,

 

Looks good, works good & feels like it is made good. It's good.

Makes great coffee, the timer is easy to use (I didn't even need the instruction book, has a filter

The blue light is strange, how come everything made has a bright blue light on it

Consumer review by:
