They only last between 1 to 2 years. My first one went out after 13 months. They did send me a new one but it quit on me after 2 years. They need to last longer for the money you spend.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Not terrible, but not that great either. Meh. It's works alright, but it's also very slow. It takes ages to reset for the next cup. That really needs to be fixed. Other than that, I've had no issues with it. Just always remember to use filtered water in the reservoir, and you'll be set. The coffee is pretty darned weak, though. Don't use it for tea. You will get the poorest excuse for a brewed cup of tea I've ever seen. Use it for hot water and then add a tea bag.

We got one as a gift. The coffee strength is very weak. The overall cost is much higher than drip systems. Coffee quality is much lower than grind-your-own with much fewer choices.<br /><br />Ours broke after ~2 months of use. Google keurig prime for the apparently very common problem. We will be returning it.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
