Summary: Nice compact, streamline, attractive unit. Cold water could be a little colder, but hot water is great for quick hot drinks such as tea, cocoa. Mounting new water jug is more cumbersome than previous competitor's unit, ie, I didn't have to uncap container, which avoided water spills. But all and all, we are satisfied to date.
Pros: Compact Attractive, Easy To Install, Good taste
Summary: We had an old water cooler that provided hot and cold water and was from a school, it lasted over 25 years. This cooler was very easy to set up and we are hoping that is can last just as long.
Nice item but three of them arrived damaged due to shipper error

Summary: This really looks like a nice water cooler. I would recommend it, but I would caution you before buying it from this shipper. The box clearly states that it should not be inverted, but the way it was packed in an outer cardboard box, this warning is hidden and it arrived upside down. The first and third also arrived with sticky gue coming out of the box, so we returned them.
