Whats not to love?


My wife doesn't like coffee. She like cappuccino. For us to both be happy, it was heat up a pot of water, and each make a bland cup from instant, or bagged. Blah Blah Blah! With the Keurig, it takes about 30 seconds to heat up the water, and we can...

Garbage after 3 weeks


Makes good coffee, when it works

broke after 3 weeks of use, no longer dispensed coffee, just sat there

Fast, Easy, Convenient


Great for a small office setting. Anyone can use this machine the first time without help. The Auto off feature is a must have.

Easy to use - Your co-workers don't need a training manual ; Fast - From initial warm up to brewing consecutive cups ; Convenient - Ready when you are & this is not a Keurig 2.0 machine, so you have more brewing options ; Already extensively used with...

Limited to three fairly small brewing sizes ; Water reservoir is smallish

Great item - Newegg failed in delivery


I can move this to 5 stars when Newegg steps up and owns up to the error they made, both in delivering a product without all it's pieces and their horrid response time.

What can I say to a Keurig. They are great machines. Love my coffee

The box came damaged (Somewhat open), like it was used. When I'm taking all the parts out, it's missing the water filter. Someone, somewhere took the filter out and taped back the box. Somehow this slipped past Newegg.I try to contact Newegg, and it...

coffee made easy


very easy to use ; fresh coffee only when you need it so no leftovers ; heats up water in less than a minute ; charcoal filter is nice so you can just use tap water ; simple clean up

k cups can get expensive if you're a heavy coffee drinker ; wish the water reservoir held more water so you didn't have to refill often

Consumer review by:

Good deal. Not version 2.0


Stay away from Keurig's 2.0 coffeemakers. Why limit yourself to only their brand cups? Buy this K45 model instead. No such limitations.

My wife loves this machine. The K45 model does NOT use Keurig's 2.0 DRM system, which is nothing more than a scam by them to make you buy and use only their brand of cups. I can buy any brand cup and it will work great in this machine

Keurig K45


I really like the system, as I am trying to cut down on my java intake from 2 large mugs in the AM, then 2 in the PM, to one large AM, one large PM. So far, I think it's working very well. Tried getting the Melitta Java Jig & filters. Espresso grind is...

Good price w/ promo code ; No frills simple machine ; Works as advertised ; Came w/ 12-cup sample pack and water filter ; With registration on-line, you get 10% discount, plus buy 2/ get 2 free (22-24 cup) boxes plus free Fedex shipping. I think I...

K-cups are expensive per cup ; Keurig uses IRS rounding method, as the actual brew amounts are 5.25, 7.25, and 9.25 oz., not 6,8,and 10 listed - disappointing, as I really wanted at least 10 oz. for my large mug, so I run two cycles of the small...

Consumer review by:

Buy it before all inventories becomes 2.0


It is a stupid move for Keurig to push 2.0 to milk already expired patent. Failure on VUE and recent recall makes me very happy that I actually did not buy their stock :)) Hopefully more 3rd party K-CUP machines comes to the market, so that I don't...

Does exactly what it supposed to do. It brews coffee from a K-cup ; It takes those cups without 'Keurig 2.0 rings' around the cup, since it is not 2.0 machine, and that is definitely a plus

Water tank might be bit small for a family of size 4 or more

Consumer review by:

Nice to have a tank


Holds water ; heats quickly ; can add more with little trouble

Only enough water for 3 to 4 cups ; Tank on left side, sink on right ; Wife says small cup not hot enough

Consumer review by:

its a keurig!


its a keurig and great price
