Pros: This unit holds more water but forces a refill even if there is an amount of water that is a little over one more cup. The carafe may be a good idea, but does not hold the temp of the coffee very long.
Cons: This machine is buggy and proprietary. We have 9 Keurig units installed and when the 2.0 came out we started with 2 units. To date 4 have failed. We would return the failure to the store and the next one would fail as well. So in essence we have had 6 total units to get the two we wanted. Much to our surprise, some of our K-Cup supply would not work in the machine because it was not Keurig brand. We were able to modify the system, but come on now, why did we hav to do that. By the way, the modification stopped the ability to use the carafe. Three of the failures was the strong taste of burnt plastic in the coffee. You could even smell it in the room when a cup was being brewed. Please take this as a strong "DO NOT BUY". There is still nothing wrong with the earlier brewers that we have. And by the way, why use a K-cup to brew a pot of coffee. Go back and grind your coffee fresh and brew it the old fashioned way, several cups at a time. After all, the Keurig addresses the question of how to just get a cup of coffee quickly when I want one. Remember?

Pros: Works great and I always use K Cups so no problem there.
Cons: It stopped working and would drip just small drops. I am not one to waste time sending something back. Had time to check it and found by luck that the upper needle was clogged, cleaned it out with a pin and its working great again.

Pros: Works as expected (except as noted below). I got it on a Shell Shocker deal. Great price. I wanted to try out the Keurig and compare it to my usual French press method. Very convenient for one cup at a time.
Cons: As mentioned above, it's not perfect when brewing with a reusuable pod. I have both an Ekobrew and a genuine Keurig model and both sort of spit when brewing. It may be because I ground the beans too fine. Not a major deal.
Other Thoughts: I bought this model for three reasons: 1) I wanted to try out the Keurig to see if it fit in my morning routine; 2) I didn't want to get the most expensive one because I didn't need all the bells and whistles; and 3) the price was great so if the whole thing failed, I wouldn't take too much of a bath.
Oh, and maybe because it was red.
Does it beat my French press? Nope. Not even close. It does make a good cup of coffee, but not as good as a pressed cup. Pre-packaged pods are a little expensive, but not too bad if you only use them when in a hurry.
NOTE: You may want to grab one of these K45's from Newegg soon. The Keurig 2.0 uses only genuine Keurig pods and that angered so many people, the 2.0 versions are not selling as well. Consequently, some online retailers have jacked up the prices of the older models above their original selling price. If you want one, get it now.

Cons: A scam to protect keurig after their patent on k cups expired last year. Now you have to buy only keurig k cups.
Other Thoughts: Keurig, you should be ashamed.
