Detailed Commentary

This is my first "real" drip coffee maker.  I did my research here on coffeegeek.com (thanks everyone for your reviews, was a fantastic resource!).

I consider this machine a great value -- Great coffee (IMO) for under $100.

The machine is kinda tall and barely fits under my kitche cupboards, so I need to move it out to fill the machine since the lid flips-up.  But I can live with that.

The machine takes a standard #4 cone filter, and I found permanent filter at Target that fits perfectly.

My wife was skeptical I was paying "so much" for a coffee maker, but now I think she's glad I did as she really enjoys it as well ("Hmmm, so this is what really hot coffee tastes like").

We usually don't drink alot (<4 of the "small" cups per morning), so I thought I needed a machine that has an "Under 4 cups" button.  This machine doesn't have one but it doesn't matter, as the brew seems consistant whether I brew 3 cups or 8.

I've only used the timer once but it did work perfectly.

Buying Experience

Smooth.  No surprises.

Three Month Followup

Still working well.

One Year Followup

Actually a 4 year followup . . . bought the machine in '06, just died 9/1/10.  Still enjoyed the coffee it brewed for these 4 years but now looking for something diff.  Am I willing to drop the bucks for a Technovurm?
