Let me start off by saying I come from a family that loves their Keurig machines. I've used quite a few different models at my mom's, grandparents, and friends' homes, and can offer a comparison of the models I've used to this one I purchased for my wife for her birthday. For those of you who may see the K45 model on other sites and are wondering about the difference, there is none at all in the actual design of the machine; it just includes a filter starter kit offered at Walmart for $17 with two refill packs. First off, my basic first impressions of this particular model, the K40. It's extremely simple, with no LED display, no temp control, and three brew options (6, 8, 10 oz, approx). Unlike more expensive models, the water reservoir is not illuminated. The drip tray is removable, allowing for taller travel mugs. Everything is done in black plastic with only a silver band as the handle for opening the K-Cup holder. The power saver feature has only one setting; on or off, with a two hour window. The documentation provided suggests that it will take around four minutes to heat the water from the off setting, though in my experience it is ready in two. If you choose to disable the power saver setting, it is always ready providing you have the minimum amount of water in the reservoir. Brew time is stated to be less than a minute - very accurate. Assume 25 seconds for a 6 oz brew, 35 for an 8 oz, and 45 for a 10 oz. The capacity of the reservoir is 48 oz, meaning you will get between 4-8 brews per fill depending on cup size. Note that using K-Cups versus a reusable filter takes less time. (As a side note, I recommend the Ekobrew reusable brown filter over the official Keurig model because you do not need to switch out an additional part in the K-Cup brewer, and it is also lower-priced and dishwasher safe - Walmart offers the Ekobrew at $10 versus $17 for the official model). Now for the comparisons, starting with the K10 - the personal brewer sold for about $10 less than the K40. A family member owns one, and I have had the pleasure of using it as well. The K10 comes in several colors, making it attractive to those looking to match a kitchen layout or send a gift to a college student's dorm. Unfortunately, it really is a single-cup brewer; if you have more than one person brewing a cup at the same time, be prepared to wait about 4 minutes between cups, as the reservoir only holds enough for a single brew. It is very compact compared to the K40 though, and great for small spaces. For a single person or college student, the K10 may be the way to go, but I would suggest spending the extra $10 for the additional reservoir space if you're a couple or family, it will save you time on mornings when you're running late. The K10 and K40 offer the same cup sizes, and neither offers temp control (though in my opinion, they both come out perfectly; just below boiling temp, ready to drink. Do NOT use chilled water in either of these machines or you will end up with weaker coffee). My parents own a K70 Keurig Platinum that offers a few extras over the K40. Most importantly, it allows you to adjust the temp of the water when brewing a K-Cup. If you prefer your coffee boiling temperature or want a slightly more mild brew, it's easy to set it to do so. (Note that with the K40, if you prefer a lighter brew, simply use cold filtered water and it will turn out the same; anything out of your fridge dispenser/Brita/Pur filter would work perfectly. I do NOT recommend adding warm or hot water to the K40 tank to increase brew temp, however). A trivial detail is that it also has a programmable clock on the LED screen, though most kitchens already have an abundance of time-telling devices between their microwaves and stovetops. One major downside for me is the K70 has an illuminated water reservoir. Our kitchen in our apartment opens up to the living area, so having a blue light on all the time would have been very distracting. It can act as a decent night-light for wandering the kitchen at night though, just be aware of that difference and whether or not you want the light. One other thing I do not like about the K70 is that the drip tray is a chrome/silver color as opposed to the matte black of the K40; it looks somewhat cheap in my personal opinion, though the K70 may match well with a kitchen done in stainless steel appliances. In all, I consider this model to be the best for the price. At around $10 more than the base, single brewer model, and $50 less than the Platinum model, you're getting the best bargain for a Keurig with the full benefits of owning a single brewer. Purchase a Ekobrew alongside it and you will never regret giving up that 6, 8, or 12 cup pot that used to burn your coffee every morning after just half an hour. If you need temp control and it is worth the fifty dollars, then by all means upgrade; the K70 is an excellent machine, it just doesn't offer additional performance equal to the price in my opinion. If you need a night light for the kitchen, try your local Dollar Tree instead of paying for the upgrade. One final note; I would be cautious buying Keurig 'approved' models such as Mr. Coffee, while I have not used one, the price does not seem far off of the official models and I have heard nothing but bad stories from those I know who have owned one.

If you buy the reusable K cup to use your own coffee grounds you have to pull down the little seal around the top needle that usally would puncture the top of your prepacked k cups, otherwise you will have water and grounds all over! You need to do this every time you switch between the two so it will create the proper seal that it needs for the water to flow right. Its no big deal but it does not tell you this in any of the packing. I use both every day. If you call Keurig they are great about customer service if you have any questions.

My husband bought this for me for my birthday today. I had previously owned a Hamilton Beach 6 cup brewstation. I'd had it for about a year, and it began to leak like everyone elses. I've always wanted a Keurig, but they were pretty pricey, and I wasn't sure if the coffee was worth the price. Well, I've had two cups (one k-cup and 1 made w/ my regular Maxwell house french roast using the "my K-cup" that I purchased seperately). Both cups were delicious. Hot and fresh tasting. This maker has a choice of 2 cup sizes. A 7.25 oz and a 9.25 oz. The larger will make a milder cup. The smaller a stronger one. The coffee maker is LOUD!!! I'd been warned of this by other owners and many reviewers, but until you hear it, you don't realize just how loud, LOUD is! However, the noise only lasts a few seconds, and for the coffee that comes out of it (w/ out leaking), I'll tolerate it. Instructions are very simple. Set-up only took a couple of minutes, and it was ready to go. Easy to fill with water. Don't know about durability, yet. The maker has a 1 yr mfg. warranty, and I bought another year for $5.88 from Wal-Mart. It comes w/ a good sampling of coffees, and teas. The k-cups are a little pricey, but once you register the machine, you can get two free boxes of k-cups when you buy 2 boxes and you get free shipping. Also, if you buy a "my K-cup", you can use whatever coffee you want, and come out a little cheaper. No wasted coffee!!! I highly recommed this coffee maker.

I have used an Under-counter coffee maker for some 30 years, so this is a switch for me. But I don't drink as much coffee as I used to, so I decided to make the leap. This is a wonderful brewer for those who don't need a whole pot each morning. The water reservoir is easily removable for filling and cleaning, but the lid raises easily to refill in place. I turn mine on when I walk into the kichen and it's ready to go in no time. And yes, it does make some sounds, but they are not that loud or that long. I kinda like the sound it makes when it's done brewing, it tells me that it's ready, so I don't forget about it! And I like the option to have it stay on or cut itself off after a time. I wouldn't want to go off and leave mine on all day, or all night. This is a simple machine to use, it works very well and is a good entry machine for those who are not sure they want to make the leap. Also, you can also use it to make a hot cup of water for a package of cocoa, tea bag, or whatever else you want a cup of hot water for. I bought the reusable Cafe Cups so I could use my brand of coffee and use the amount that I prefer. Bottom line: I do like it (and I NEVER thought I would) and the price was right and the shipping was free. If you are contemplating a pod machine, then be sure to give this one a close look. It just might be what you want.

I'd had my eye on this coffee maker for quite some time, but couldn't stand it's price tag. I saved up and got it for myself. I am the only person in my house that drinks coffee, so $100 for a brewer seemed really steep. But I was tired of trying to measure out what 2 cups of coffee would equal out to in a 6 or 12 cup coffee maker. And I was wasting so much; undrank coffee, filters, etc. Now that I have it; I can't believe I let the price tag overshadow the potential of the Keurig. I can make a perfect cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate in under a minute flat. And the K-Cups are literally sold everywhere. I use my Keurig every single day. I tell everyone about my new Keurig, even those who don't drink coffee. :) I love mine so much, I plan on giving one as a gift.

  • A. Keurig has placed digital rights management (DRM) in the Keurig 2.0 machines. That means, that unless you use THEIR K-cups specifically made for the Keurig 2.0 machine, the machine will not operate, will not make coffee. As far as I'm aware, there is no workaround to bypass the DRM on this machine. Keurig's selection of coffees for this machine is also limited. If you want to use your own pods, then you should look at an older model.
