Depending on your water quality consider a Britta type water filter pitcher used to fill up the keurig seemed to help keep are last one running the longest until yesterday when it simply would not turn on. Also descale it as recommended by keurig and you should be good to go.

The B70 has had a ton of issues... I bought mine used and haven't had a problem, but if you look online there are a bunch fixes you can try at home before deciding to send it in. Also, using filtered water is a good idea.

If anyone is looking to get a B70, Costco sells it online for about the same price as Amazon and it comes with 60 K-cups and the My K-cup reusable filter that lets you put your own coffee in it. I think we'll be picking it up for xmas this year.

The Keurig rocks. My brother has the one that doesn't have a reservoir. Its kind of a pain to use. You have to load the water first. Then insert the capsule and press the button. If you are making several cups this is a drag.

I would highly recommend getting one of the ones that has a reservoir. I have the elite.. and its very nice.

Okay, I succumbed to pressure from my other half and ordered the B70. At the moment, Costco on-line is the best deal I could find. When you figure tax and what not, it was still a few bucks cheaper than Amazon and they include the filter basket thingy. I don't think Amazon gives you the thingy, but I can't remember for sure. Brain is pretty much fried right now from surfing and shopping and reviewing these things for the last two days.

I have the B60 and love it. My only regret is that I didn't get one that can fill a travel mug. If you drink from travel mugs a lot, get one that can fill it. Assuming they even make something that will fit a travel mug. I think they might, and if they do, get that one.

My uncle has the Cuisinart one on that page...it's pretty good. We have a B70 at work and maybe it's just the k-cups they buy, but everything tastes burnt and terrible. I actually enjoyed the keurig coffee when I was visiting my uncle.

I order from Green Mountain a lot and enjoy their brand of k-cups quite a lot.

Maybe it's the coffee maker then. We pretty exclusively buy Green Mountain at work. It's probably not the B70, it's an older model I think of the same line. It's died on us multiple times too. I think that's the whole reason I've been hesitant to buy any keurig system. But seeing my uncle's and what a good cup of coffee it makes, it makes me think I should give it a shot.

I waste so much coffee making a pot at home. I usually only drink about 2/3rds of it, but as soon as I make a smaller pot, well I run out of coffee and wish I had more

Well, they have quite a bit of coffee blends too, so that could be a factor. I like their vermont and nantucket blends a lot. The breakfast blend isn't bad either, as well as their fair trade columbian.

We could also just have different tastes!

I was buying a lot of starbucks, mcdonalds and dunkin coffee, so I justified the expense by saving on that stuff. It's 50 cents a day as opposed to 2 - $5.

Heh...howdy all...and ditto...I buy a lot of the Green Mountain and Tully's k-cups and have a B30 mini which we use the hell out of so I got the other half the Special Edition (B60) for Hanukkah...
