* Can carbonate almost any drink
* Gets carbonation level plenty ample (if you are careful about the process)
* Durable metal construction
* Not easy to keep carbonation past first serving
Compared to iSi, the main difference is that the iSi allows you to pour out a serving without opening up the whole container and releasing all the pressure. With the iSi you squeeze a lever which shoots out the carbonated water from the spigot keeping the unused portion under pressure. The violent discharge of the water into the glass causes it to lose some of its carbonation but the result is consistent down to the last drop from the container. On the other hand, since you have to completely unscrew the top of the SodaPlus to pour out a serving, you lose a lot of carbonation each time you open it up. The last glass your pour from the SodaPlus will be pretty weak unless you went through the whole 1.2L on the first pour. Also, the iSi has a nice cap that you can replace the charger stem with so it fits easy in the fridge.
Compared to the SodaStream, this system is pretty similar. The downside here is that you have to use a new charger cartridge for each bottle you make. But the upside is that this doesn't take any additional counter or cupboard space to hold a big contraption. Also SodaStream charges a premium for its glass container and doesn't offer a metal one (at this point anyway). The CO2 is a little more expensive and slightly harder to acquire with SodaStream as well but not enough to really consider it as a deciding factor.
My experience with this unit confirms the other reviews that the storage lid does not hold pressure. The kit comes with two lids. One that the CO2 cartridge fits into and is used to do the carbonation. The other lid is smaller without the CO2 insert and allows easier storage by giving it a chance to fit in the fridge somewhere. On mine, each lid has a different kind of seal. The carbonator has a bulky tight-fitting orange seal and the storage lid has a flimsy small black one. No surprise, the flimsy one doesn't hold the pressure and the drink goes flat. I can swap the seals but that's a pain and will make the good one wear out faster. Also I found for best carbonation, let the drink sit under pressure for at least 2-3 hours before opening it up to pour a glass. I usually just make it as soon as I empty it so it's ready the next day for my next glass.
All in all, I prefer the iSi (http://amzn.com/B00007JXR7). It may result in a slightly less fizzy drink but it keeps a consistent fizz for the whole bottle whereas this one loses a lot of fizz from one glass to the next. I would only recommend this one if you wanted to carbonate things besides plain water.
2 stars for the sore shoulder you get
2 stars for the proprietary seal that fails after 40 uses
(I even used food grade grease on the second one hoping it would help make it last - nope. I bought many packs of similar sized O-rings online and none were the right diameter or thickness.)
0 stars for the company for not selling replacement O-rings
0 stars for the company for never answering requests via email or phone.
Like many other people who have reviewed this I recommend using cold cold cold water and keeping the Sodaplus in the fridge even when empty to keep it cold as well. I had a few one liter empty bottles laying around so I fill them with water and keep them in the fridge ready for use in the Sodaplus whenever the desire or need for sparkling water arises. Cold water and a few shakes and your ready to go.The whole process takes less than a minute to complete.
The only downside is that after abut 24 hours I notice that the amount of fizz quickly goes down even when stored with the included top in the fridge. I still give it five stars because for me thats not really an issue as usually I drink it all within a few hours of making it.
The biggest negative for me though is that rust stains started to appear on the bottom of the bottle after only two months of weekly use. We only noticed it because the water started tasting very metallic.
