I think it is a great coffee maker for the price. I highly recommend it.
Positive Product Points
It is very easy to use. I use a gold filter which does not effect the flavor of the coffee. (you should not use paper filters)
Negative Product Points
The feature I like best is the water filters that can be purchased and added inside the water tank. Even though I use filtered water, it is nice to know it is getting filtered twice. (good water is important to a good cup of coffee) I think I paid @ 65.00. However I have given several of these out as gifts and everyone has loved them. I have owned older models of this same coffee machine. They are very reliable.
