Keurig B60 Black Special Edition Brewer With K-Cups
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Makes a quick cup of coffee. Good variety. Stupidly simple. Minimal waste.

People claim that this "promotes waste", well I'd say it's about a wash. I don't waste 1/2 a pot anymore when my spouse wakes up and decides she doesn't want any coffee after I already made a full pot. Or when I forget I brewed a pot and it goes to waste. Plus, there's always the reusable filter which generates virtually zero waste - no paper filter.

Cons: After a week+ of proper use, I'm happy to report that I'm a semi-happy customer, with only a slight discontent for having to go through so much trouble for this to work. I still reserve that I should not have to go through that much trouble for a machine that is so pricey.

I'm not a coffee snob by any means, but the coffee that comes out of the disposable k-cups is light/medium at best. Still very drinkable to me. However, for a better cup, we opted to spend another $20 bill on the reusable k-cup. It allows you to use your own coffee, and definitely comes out stronger.

Other Thoughts: This is a rehash of a previous review.

Got it to work without the plastic taste, after we decided to give it one more try. (Pro-tip: WHITE Vinegar, not "WHITE-RICE Vinegar"... *rolls eyes*)

Some bunker-building gater-getters would have you believe that this makes you and the rest of America lazy. I find this not to be the case. Some people might have the luxury of time in which they can dedicate as much as they need to menial tasks. Other people actually work for a living so shaving time off of coffee making and a hand full of other tasks, can add up to a few more minutes spent working, or being with our families. Example: I text most of the time because I don't want to have a 5-10 minute conversation with everyone. It doesn't make me lazy. Also, I take the short route to work so it saves me time in the morning. This does not make me lazy, it makes me more efficient. Someone telling me that the "long way" is the only way, else I'm just lazy, is just plain ignorance.

Keurig B60 Black Special Edition Brewer With K-Cups

1 out of 5 eggs I hate giving bad reviews... 12/30/2011

This review is from: Keurig B60 Black Special Edition Brewer With K-Cups

Pros: Looks pretty, and makes a quick cup of coffee. K-Cups come in all sorts of flavors.

Cons: I bought this for my wife for Christmas. We had the plastic taste and everyone is talking about (Google: Keurig plastic taste). We descaled it with vinegar, soaked it in hot water & Dawn, ran countless reservoirs of water through, and still the plastic taste persisted. We contacted Keurig, and they told us to do what we had already done. We did it all again. It still had the plastic taste. We called back and they sent us out a new machine (came in 2 days). We did all the same steps over again with the new machine, and still the plastic taste.
This is completely unacceptable out of a machine that retails at $150. I have never had this kind of issue with any product, ever (Guess I’ve been lucky). I am going to contact Newegg and find out the next step in returning this.
I dislike giving a product 1 egg, because there's usually some sort of redeeming factor, but in this case, it's primary (and sole) function is severely flawed beyond use, so I have to give it an honest 1 egg.

Other Thoughts: As always: lightning fast shipping via Newegg standard shipping.
I have heard tales of a Cuisinart that uses K-Cups and sprinkled around the web are people claiming to have switched to it after getting the plastic Keurig coffee with great results. It retails at $50 more, but I think I just might give it a try. I don’t know what I’m going to do until then, because I threw away my old coffee maker upon giving this to my wife. Don’t make that mistake, if you still decide to get this! Hang on to your old one until you’ve verified that your Keurig is good.

Canon PowerShot SX150 IS Red 14.1 MP 12X Optical Zoom 28mm Wide Angle Digital Camera
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: We really like the features offered, and quality of pictures from this camera. Has a lot of features that you'd normally see in an SLR.

Cons: Slight learning curve navigating the menu if you're not tech savvy.

Other Thoughts: Iron Egg is sweet. As always, super fast standard shipping. Ordered it Monday morning, was at the office Tuesday at 1:00PM.
