I have been using the v1 of the Keurig since it was released. We used standard k-cup, third party and plastic one (for ground coffee). All worked very well in the v1 of the machine. My only issue was the machine was collecting so much scale (minerals) internally that it was barely pumping even though I tried many cleaning routines. Be that as it may, I was still happy with the machine. I seen the v2 machine and value package at my local Costco and purchase it wanting to use the new features and get a full cup of coffee!
It does seem to be a well thought out and well built machine. I do like the option of using standard k-cups, Vue packs and the large Carafe packs. Each has its own options menu. (e.g. the Vue latte double k-cups can perform a coffee and a frothing cycle). There are also k-cup options for cup size and now strength! The menu interface is simple but functional. There are options for auto power on and off, energy saver options, nightlight and light color modes. The cup chamber seems easier to maintain as well as simple maintenance of the water chamber... but only time will tell. There is even a setting for hot water but this is limited to 8ozs at a time.
I was thoroughly shocked and disappointed that when I made my first coffee using my enviro-friendly brand k-cups (which I love), the machine rejected them as a non-sanction k-cup and refused to start and gave me the message stating that this is not a genuine brand k-cup. I could be blamed that I did not do my due diligence in researching this purchase but I never would have guessed that DRM would be implemented on my coffee maker! I have cases of k-cups in my pantry (yes, we drink a lot of coffee) that I can no longer use. This was *infuriating* especially when it seemed that industries are no longer implementing DRM (music, games, etc.). I literally wanted to smash the machine at that moment even though I had k-cup included with the system! I don't want to use their k-cup... I want to use the ones that I have chosen... not the ones the company choose for me!
Rationality ensued and I decide to just return the system. But as the hours of the even went by I decided to research how to bypass what can be considered a "restriction of trade". YouTube is full of ways to easily bypass the restrictions. I am still upset that the restrictions were even considered, let alone released into the marketplace. I wanted to vote with my wallet and return the system. But I do believe the engineering and developement that went into the new system is top-notch. Only an old “sanctioned” k-cup and a piece of electrical tape can allows me to enjoy MY machine with MY k-cup brand. It’s a real shame I even had to do so.
If these restrictions are as maddening for you as me, do not buy this. I hope you don't and demonstrate to Keurig and Green Mountain that this business practice is unacceptable. I even think there is a class-action lawsuit being considered. If you are like me and took this situation as a challenge, then buy it. It is a nice machine with nice options... excluding the company-imposed restrictions. The restrictions are not hard to bypass.
I hope you found this review useful.
There IS a DRM (digital rights management) system on this machine. That means you can only used "licensed" k-cups. Yes, this is a bummer, especially because I've grown fond of Wegman's store brand cups and they aren't official. So if your favorite cups are a "non-official" brand, you can't use them and this will be a downside for you. The vast majority of cups however ARE licensed. Everything from the major brands (Starbucks, Dunkin' Donuts, Folgers, etc.) all the way to a lot of store brands. Even Target's "generic" cups are official, for example, and can be used in your machine. So the arguments that you cannot use whatever cups you like are TRUE, but your options are still VERY expansive. You CAN get cheaper, no-name cups that still work in your machine as well as the mega names.
For functionality, this machine is excellent. It heats up quickly and brews fast. There is a very nice LED touchscreen display that allows for a bunch of options - cup size (no pun intended), brew strength (regular, strong), whether or not it's hot chocolate, tea, etc. and then of course the power button. If you lift the handle and close it again without putting a k-cup in, the screen will give you the option for hot water. Just push and hold the button until you have what you want (up to 6 oz., which perfectly fills a coffee or tea mug). So personally, no complaints with the screen, features, or ease-of-use.
The reservoir is nice and large, so there's more time spent making coffee and less time filling up the water tank. Always a plus. Also, this new model comes with a water filter/purifier that attaches to the inside of your water tank. You no longer have to de-scale!
On to the the k-carafe! This is a pretty cool upgrade from the last Keurig. You just slide the included carafe into the slot where the drip tray would go, pop in a carafe pack (a larger version of a k-cup) and bam. You've got roughly 4 cups of coffee brewed in about a minute and a half. No, there is no warmer or heating element to keep this pot hot once you've brewed it. This can be a downside if you're planning to drink the whole thing yourself over the course of a few hours, but if you're brewing for 2 or more people it's perfect. You basically get the quantity advantages of a regular coffee pot but at the speed of the Keurig. K-carafe packs range from $8 to $16 depending on brand, etc. for a four pack, so if you do the math (4 carafes x 4 cups of coffee each) you're spending roughly the same amount for them as you are a box of individual k-cups.
Durability of the machine seems solid. Easy to clean and not flimsy. I've only had the machine for a few weeks, so I won't pretend to attest to the longevity of it - that we'll have to see about as time goes on - but the construction is well-made. It's got the same materials and feel as the previous Keurig models. My last Keurig (Platinum Elite series) is at least 5 years old and still going strong to this day so the longevity of the brand overall is certain, I just hope that translates to the new 2.0 version as well.
As for price, this is a pretty great deal. I certainly can't complain about the price of the machine compared to the old ones (I paid almost double this for the last model when it first came out). Add to that all the sweet extras that come with the K560 package (extra water filter, 48 k-cups, 4 k-carafes) and really there are no complaints possible price-wise.
**ON THE WHOLE**
I would say that this machine is a great buy. The upgrades and features are a nice improvement on the first generation. *It may not be suitable* for you if you drink exclusively non-registered k-cups. My personal recommendation? If you have a perfectly working first-gen Keurig, the new 2.0 features may not be enough for you to justify upgrading just yet. It's a great machine, but if you can live without the shiny new upgrades you may as well wait until your current one stops working. However, if you need a new machine or are a first-time Keurig buyer, I would strongly recommend going with the Keurig 2.0. It has all the features of the old Keurigs and then some. It looks good, does the job well, and is an overall excellent product for coffee lovers.
