I used this for two weekends, we use a regular coffee maker during the week for the 10-12 cup pot. After 2 weeks it just stopped working. We couldn't get it to even make water. Nothing. Just quit working. Certainly wasn't from overwork or bad water, we hardly got to use it at all. Taking it back, getting the cheaper version again. I had my old one a few years before that one died. Very disappointed. But I read another review about this one doing this. Buyer Beware!

I find this coffeemaker just precious. So simple to understand because it spells it out for you. I thought it was going to be complicated and I couldn't be more wrong. Beautiful to look at and makes a great cup of coffee with a lot less noise than most. Keurig is great except that I can no longer go out for a meal and get coffee because now they all taste at least an hour old. Keurig just plain spoils you and I find it hard to believe that I can't go out and find coffee that tastes as fresh as my personal brewer. It literally means that I never knew what a good cup of coffee tasted like until now with the Keurig brewers. I brew coffee for work an put it in a thermos and it still tastes like fresh brewed coffee. Has me totally spoiled. Unless Keurig comes out with another brewer above the K550, I intend on getting another one so I know I'll never be without a good replacement. That's how great this brewer is as far as I'm concerned. Great coffee equals Keurig Brewers. It's just that simple.

My husband bought this for me to replace my old Keurig we had one of the first models. I love my Keurig and won't trade it for anything. It brews very quiet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Busy mom Disappointed
I just bought the K550 to replace my old machine that had stopped working. I came home excited to try it with one of my K-pods. I had 5 boxes left of my favorite Keurig pods. I followed all the steps to set up the coffee maker and set out to make my first cup when the display said my pod was not Keurig brand (it was!). I replaced it with another, making sure the K logo was there. Same result. I just found out this machine won't work with my pods (I need to buy new ones). I don't like to waste perfectly usable coffee. I am so disappointed!!! Also, the hot water feature is disappointing, too. It's slow, only produces a small amount of water (not enough to fill one regular size mug), you have to keep the button pressed the whole time, and you have to lift and lower the handle every time, even if you haven't placed a K-pod in. I bought this machine because my mornings are extremely busy and I needed a fast solution. I guess I'll continue to use my grind'n'brew Cuisinart. It's more work, but it has never disappointed me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by OSusieQ Love it!
I use my 2.0 550 everyday and night. 4 to 6 cups a day between us. I Love the easy of use and it's less hassle and mess of my old coffee pot. I loved it so much my mom bought her one and she loves it too. However, I KNOW there are some hidden settings I have gained access to by "hacking" the software and it gives me the ability to select 12oz for my k-cup which makes it perfect ! I had heard these settings are for "view cup" but make it available for all to use please. Dont limit your full features to the consumers. The settings are already there let us use them for all k-cups. I bet you while find more people buying your products if you did. People need the ability to select how many oz from what ever they choose not a pre-set amount. I like 120z cup and my husband likes a 10oz. Heat setting options would be nice, I know to set it for a higher altitude to achive a little hotter cup of coffee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Carl of the Coffee Dont understand the negative things people have said!!!
I use mine at least 10 times a day. Read the coffee didn't come out hot enough but Ive never had that problem, same with saying you have to hold down the button for just the hot water. I just press it and get the water no holding. People said there was no cup size setting but mine makes up to a 12oz cup with a regular sized K-Cup!!! Only thing I haven't figured out is the night light yet it seems to just always be on and I have some boxes of cups that don't work in this new one!! Other than those couple things I would have to say I absolutely love it!!! Oh yea cant forget the carafe which is also awesome. Wish it came with the metal one but eh I can buy that!!! I've dealt with Keurig for many years now and any time I've had a problem or question they were very polite and took care of whatever the issue was!!! Keep up the good work!! No more coffee shops for this guy!!! I haven't received anything for writing this review!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dog Mom Misleading "features" listed
So many of the features of my previous Keurig are missing in this model, I'm not sure where to start. The hot water feature is the most dissapointing. You have to stand at the machine and hold down on the button just to get the max 6 oz. at a time. 6 ounces! I can't even imagine what that could be used for. You have to open and close the machine to get more hot water, after you wait for it to heat up again. You either get the max 6 oz. or you get an undeterminable amount if you release the button early. You cannot pre-set any settings for regular k-cups, that is for the carafe part only. The max oz. you can brew for a regular k-cup is 10 and you can NOT set it as the default. You, of course, can open and close the machine and brew additional oz.'s. You then have to wait several seconds for the water to heat again. So again, I am standing at the machine every morning for several minutes making one cup of coffee to go. If my old Keurig had not broken, this would be going back to the store. It is the most inconvenient appliance in my kitchen.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Wilma Doesn't brew over 10 oz cups.
I replaced my Vue with a 550 because I wanted the carafe so that I didn't have to disturb my cat when we are curled up in a chair. When I'm not cuddling with the cat I regularly brew 16 oz cups and this one only goes to 10 oz. I have to run through two 8 oz runs to fill my tall cups. So it seems that if you want travel mug size you're out of luck unless you brew a small carafe and pour it into the travel mug. (more dishes to wash) And it doesn't brew as strong a cup as the previous versions. It is my perception that the carafe doesn't keep the coffee warm for long enough. Also, I had some pods from an old K cup and it was a brand/flavor that I couldn't get in the Vue. When I put those pods into the system it told me that they weren't made for the new system. It also seems that if I want hot water I can only get 6 oz and I seem to have to keep my finger on the button to keep it running. I don't see this system as an improvement on the previous systems.
