Summary: Mine also stopped working properly in month 13. I love the unit, but it no longer will read the correct amount of water I out into it. I wanted to see if it could be fixed, but when I emailed Breville, they only seemed to want to know if it was under warranty. I told them up front it was not.
Summary: I've had three of these so far, babied the last two. All just stopped after 13 or 14 months. No wonder they provide a 12 month warranty. Some of their competitors better made products give a 3 year warranty, which is in line with something priced this high.
Summary: Third time a charm! I tried three different "grind and brew" coffee makers: Cuisinart DGB-900BC Grind & Brew Thermal 12-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker, Black and Decker CM5000R 12-Cup Mill and Brew Coffee Maker, and the Breville BDC600XL YouBrew Drip Coffee Maker.
Summary: So I rarely write reviews, however felt it necessary to share my absolute love of this coffee maker. We previously had the Capresso Team which lasted a good 6 years, a wonderful coffee maker untill it just stopped working several weeks ago.
Summary: This is the best maker that dose everything great. At first I thought the mild strength was to strong and used ground beans but after a break in period of a few pots it is now my go to maker and I even increase the whole bean grind strength. I just hope it last for years as it is great.
Life changing... (ok, maybe that's a slight exaggeration)

Summary: I absolutely, positively love this coffee maker. I agonized for months over spending this much money to replace an appliance that cost $45. What really drew me to this machine were the integrated bean grinder, the ability to brew a single cup without having to use K-cups, and the customization...
BEST grind and brew coffee maker out there and well worth EVERY penny!

Summary: I have used another major brand of grind and brew coffee maker for a few years.....or I should say I've used several of them from this maker, as the grinder is forever tearing up on it. I went thru 4 under warranty. I finally decided to try this Breville version of grind and brew back in 2012.
Summary: Best coffee maker ever. Ground single serving variable boldness. Awesome. If you love coffee, you will love this coffee maker. Only drawback is its noisy when grinding. Probably unavoidable but I wish it were quieter. Well worth it for a premium cup of coffee.
Summary: I have been using the Breville YouBrew for almost a year now, and I am satisfied. I get a flavorful and hot mug of coffee every time, and I love the adjustability of the strength, flavor, etc. Some have posted comments here about running the grinder empty and using pre-ground coffee instead.

Summary: Bought mine in 2014, so the pre-2012 redesign issue is well past. I thought the idea was awesome and I read all the reviews about noise and hot caraf, etc. The noise is like the beach outside the window, love it! Its telling me my coffee is almost ready. The hot caraf?
