I use a Keurig Platinum every day, one at home and one at the office. Coffee isn't going to be aficionado worthy; however, for the other 95% of the population, it's good.<br /><br />For those that keep having issues with the unit failing, it is required to use either filtered water from the store or a top quality pitcher water filter (e.g. Brita, ZeroWater). You also must clean it according to the directions available on Keurigs website on a regular basis (before the machine tells you it needs it). <br /><br />The one we have at work is used and abused, has always had filtered water run through it, cleaned according to directions (only once in 18 months as of this review) and it still keeps going strong. If you use tap water your Keurig will fail in short order. Not unlike the one I noticed a customer returning to Costco with mineral deposits lining the water tank.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I love coffee from these machines, so it's even more frustrating when they stop working. My second one just died after about 4 months. The first lasted a whole 6 months. It's like it stops pulling water in, the drip slows to a near stop and fills only part of the cup - obviously I have no technical expertise when it comes to coffee maker guts, but here's what I do know: it's 5:30 am and there is no coffee in my cup. I once got a free coffee maker from a different coffee company for ordering a pound of coffee and that thing lasted 7 years before I finally tossed it. You would think Keurig could figure it out.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
