Summary: Purchased as a gift, based upon my own experience. Good value; heats the water and runs it through the coffee/tea/hot cocoa K-cups. The water storage is a nice feature as is the cup size selector. It hold nice size mugs - not huge, but adequate. The down side is that it will not accept the do-it-yourself Keurig K-cup assembly, but you can buy an aftermarket unit that looks identical to a regular K-cup that you can fill with your own ground coffee and drop into the unit -...
Spending a little more on a commercial unit was worth it.

Summary: I bought this model Keurig as a Christmas gift for my wife. But for a few exceptions she's been very happy with it. The only consistent annoyance is that the water pump is very noisy, you can hear it all through the house. The noise lasts about 8 to 10 seconds. There's also a burning rubber smell once in a while but it doesn't seem anything to be alarmed about as it's very mild. The first few cups of coffee had bit of plasticky taste to them but that has since gone away.
Summary: Enjoying the coffee. Simple to operate. Nice when you just want one cup of coffee and you don't want to make a pot that will just sit. Reasonable price too. If you buy the coffee at Costco you can get a pretty reasonable price so you are not paying too much per cup. This was purchased so that I could take it to work and people would be able to get the type of coffee they want.
Love the coffee and can drain the water with this model, but it is noisy.

Summary: This is my 3rd Keurig coffee maker. I needed this one because it offers the ability to drain the water. I wanted to leave my older one at my cottage during the winter but you can't drain that model, so I worried about the freezing temperatures we experience here in New England during the winter. I ended up giving my other one to my daughter. This works for me in the way I needed.
