Comment:
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.

Comment:
I PURCHASED THIS PRODUCT LESS THAN A YEAR AGO . I WAS TRANSFERRED THREE TIMES BEFORE SPEAKING WITH SOMEONE AT CORPORATE LEVEL ONLY TO BE TOLD THE SERIAL NUMBER I GAVE THEM WAS A DUPLICATE NUMBER. THE KEURIG WAS PURCHASED BY SOMEONE IN SAN ANTONIO AND THEN POSSIBLY RETURNED AFTER IT WAS SENT IN AND REFURBISHED. I PURCHASED THIS MAKER AT BED BATH& BEYOND. I OFFERED TO SEND IN KEURIG AND THEY DECLINED. THEY DID REQUEST A COPY OF RECEIPT AND I DID EXPLAINED I NO LONGER HAD A COPY BUT, INSISTED I WOULD SEND IN COFFEE MAKER TO BE REPAIRED. I PURCHASED THIS PRODUCT UNDER THE IMPRESSION IT WAS NEW HOWEVER TO FIND OUT IT WAS A RETURNED MODEL SOMEONE ELSE RETURNED.
How long have you owned it:

Comment:
Makes great coffee. Great warranty, as I just ordered a 3 rd one, due to the other 2 makers displaying PRIME, which means it cannot suction the water from the reservoir, and therefore just quits. Used filtered water and cleaned out reservoir to get it restarted....with no luck so far....trying a 3 rd one to see if it can last more than 2 wks....after we are finished w our 100 K cups, we go back to our usual coffee maker, unless the 3 rd one works...
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
