The brewer's programmability is a significant convenience--once programmed, the brewer is ready to brew beverages very quickly when I need them, and doesn't use electricity (or give off light) when not needed, and has as a default setting the cup size I usually prefer.
The range of cup sizes is very nice, and increasingly accommodated by K-Cup makers who have products that claim to accommodate large mug sizes ("travel mug K-Cups") and also some designed for making iced coffee and tea in a brewer such as this.
Since I try to limit my use of K-Cups for environmental reasons, having the My K-Cup and measure storable in the unit is a significant convenience.
For my purposes, having the water reservoir (so one need not add water to the brewer for every cup of coffee made) is indispensable, and the option of filtering water in the unit is convenient (as it's faster to fill the reservoir from a tap than from my slower filtered-water faucets).
Given these features, this coffeemaker is a nice adjunct to my 8-cup coffeemaker and tea-server when having guests for coffee/tea/dessert. With a K-cup carousel offering decaf and flavored coffees and teas, it's a convenient way to offer additional beverage variety.
Of course, I use it more often (daily) to make single-serve beverages (mostly different types of coffee) for myself.
I consider the lighting and sound of this unit part of its good design. The backlighting of the clock and the lit reservoir let me know the brewer is on, and makes it easy to see how much water is in the reservoir. (The reservoir light will blink when water is too low to make another cup, but regular lighting makes it easy to look anytime and see how much water is there.) I can see what's going on in a poorly-lit room--no need to turn on the bright kitchen lights before I've had my morning coffee.
This is not a particularly noisy unit. There is a bit of coffee-making sound when coffee is being brewed, and when the unit first comes on, and cold water is being warmed, there is a slight hum. I actually consider these pleasant sounds; they let me know the coffeemaker is working as it should.
I started a year ago with the top-of-the-line Keurig. It made an OK cup of coffee and got my family hooked on the single-cup concept. We cannot agree on what makes a good cup of coffee, so with the Keurig, we could each select our own. And, we could have fresh coffee, tea or iced beverage any time of day with no hassle. Before long, I had an entire cupboard dedicated to K-cups.
There were two problems: The coffee was OK but not great -- it lacked complexity and depth. You could get a strong cup of coffee by selecting the strongest roasts, but that produced a harsh coffee without any nuance. That is not a satisying cup of coffee. But worse, the stupid machine kept breaking down. It seemed to get confused and would freeze up. It said "brewing" but in fact, nothing was happening. At first, you could re-start the machine by unplugging it and "rebooting" it. Before long, that stopped being effective and I could find nothing to correct the problem.
I went through three Keurigs in less than one year. It was the same problem every time. Amazon was great and stood behind the machine, shipping me new ones. But with the warranty about to expire and the machine, once again, not working, I bit the bullet and went for the much more expensive Breville.
It's a great looking machine. It heats the water hotter and more consistently than the Keurig, which I realized immediately was the reason the Keurig coffee was only fair, not great. So the Breville does indeed produce a much better cup of coffee. And so far (after three months) it has not broken down. Each of the Keurig coffeemakers starting acting flaky within three months, so I'm taking this as a good sign and, with fingers crossed, believe that this will prove to be a reliable machine.
I've spoken with friends who have used Keurig for years without problems. I don't know why I have had such lousy luck with them. But I also have friends who have used both the Breville and the Keurig and, among those users, we all agree the Breville makes better coffee.
FOLLOW-UP It's been over 18 months and the Breville is still working fine.
