I really don't get the negative reviews about how long it takes the water to filter through. Common sense should tell you that you DON'T WANT the water to get through fast. It would mean it wasn't being filtered. Granted, this doesn't mean that the longer it takes the better it is filtered but it certainly it not a bad thing. You are supposed to keep the pitcher filled anyway, so I don't see a problem with it taking awhile unless you tend to drink several glasses of water in a row. Pour a glass...refill it..stick it back in the fridge while it filters, and when you go to pour a new glass, it will be ready. As far as the quality of the filtering is concerned, I have never noticed any difference between it and the actual Brita. Now, I live in a city where the water isn't terrible to begin with, so I can't say what it is like for people with bad water. But if your water is coming out yellow, you need to fix it at the source, not put a Brita band aid on it. Personally, I think for most water in cities, the main effect of the filter is psychological. You know it is filtered so you think you can taste the difference. Plus, people put the filtered water in the refrigerator which makes it colder than straight out of the tap. This will also make it seem to taste better. So, with that in mind, why not pay almost 50% less?
