From personal experience, Keurig has an excellent warranty. My brewer busted (after the warranty expired), and they sent me a new one, no questions asked.
Very good video review over at Cnet
More good reviews at kohls.com
Is this worth abandoning my old Kuerig for?
Pretty good reviews (4.3 out of 5.0) over at bestbuy.com
and let’s watch this battle out with the Keurig K-cup
No. I’d say it brews a little bit better than the K-Cup but I only have one because my original crapped out. Plus, the coffee for the Vue is more difficult to find. Fewer grocery stores carry the Vue Cups than the K Cups. YMMV.
Price doesn’t seem that great. It’s $149 at the keurig website
I’ve been noticing more and more that the better the ‘deal’ is the less it’s actually a deal. This deal says it lists at $229 and woot is selling it for $134, 41% off.
Amazon is selling it for $155 and, surprisingly, Target has it for even less, $149. Don’t get me wrong, Woot is still cheaper, but it’s not like it’s this huge deal. (Let’s not forget to add in the $5 shipping and the 1-2 week shipping time). I love Woot, but it’s becoming less and less worth it to make sure I check it everyday. The KitchenAid Mixer from a few weeks ago was an actual great deal at about $100 off…the “$3000” watch you had a few months ago for $200 (or something like that) that were going for about $20 more on Amazon and eBay…not so much.
If I wanted a Keurig, this might be the time to get one, but I liked it when Woot made me buy things I didn’t even know I needed because they were so cheap.
(12:07 AM, today) bkarlan wants to know if he/she should go Vue cup…
FWIW, I am a dude
It’s 2.52" tall? WOW
It takes portable to a whole new level lol
Also- All you need for K-cups to work with this is an adapter such as this- http://www.amazon.com/Solofill-V2-GOLD-CUP-Gold/dp/B00DU1ATCU/
If you do get this brewer, I highly recommend you get the “Solofill v2” adapter which allows you to use your own coffee grounds or better yet, k-cups in your Vue brewer. I’ve been using k-cups in my V700 for a bit now and it works fine. I can never find good deals on V-cups at all but I find good deals quite regularly for k-cups.
Gotcha. My bad
Warranty says only 90 days and this is a new product - Keurig’s own website states a 1 year warranty, what gives???
Target carries this maker new for 149.99 and has multi packs of virtually every flavor of vue cup coffee that exists. No questions on warranty there, no waiting either.
I love the newer tech…w/ bigger, stronger portions. But I’ve waited to see if companies like Costco and Peet’s coffee are going to be in the Vue game…and so far neither seems to be…so I’m still using my workhorse K-cup machine and the strongest coffees I can find…
p.s. If anyone knows of a comprehensive list of coffees that ARE available in Vue, please share.
I just got a 600 (a 700 without the color screen) and it is much, much better than the two K-Cup models I have previously owned. Both of those gave mixed results and small cups. The Vue gives you many brewing options and it makes a great cup every time. In hindsight the K-Cup Keurigs we had were a total waste of money, these seem to be much better made. Grab the gold refillable Vue cup from Amazon. Highly recommend Vue if you use single-serve systems.
the Solofill V2 adapter cup lets you brew K-cups (more variety and cheaper), loose coffee or tea, and teabags and coffee packs/pods. So if anyone is worried about having a bunch of k-cups to use up, there’s an adapter for that.
I got one last month, when the were up. Bought the SoloFill V2 off Amazon same day. The Vue will make an acceptable 8 oz. cup of coffee with K-cups, using the ‘strong’ option. Where the K cup machine was only 6 oz. Yet to get a decent cup using my own ground coffee. The Vue pods aren’t too available locally, but haven’t been to all the likely stores. Walmart only carries a few, doesn’t seem to restock very often, or they really fly off the shelves.
This machine is much bigger than the k-cup machine I have, but don’t have to add water every use either. Could have been a much better machine, if they allowed more control over the options. Think they did it this way this way, to discourage people from using their own ground coffee, and keep buying pods. I like a strong, full flavored coffee. Had hopes of using fresh roasted, fresh ground coffee with it, but comes out weak and watery in the smallest cup option (8 oz).
Definitely an upgrade to the K-cup machine, where a 6 oz cup was barely acceptable.
Glad to know I’m not the only one.
Bed, Bath, & Beyond has the Vue cups, but sadly, not all the brands that seem to do it for K-cups. Luckily, someone posted about an adapter to use K-cups in the Vue.
So tempting. Very.
I second this… I received this for christmas and without the adapter, i would not find the overall experience as enjoyable. The bf got me this and the adapter because even he noticed the lack of vue cups being unappealing/slightly more expensive. I have not tried any of the two-step pods yet but dont have high hopes for an amazing latte or anything from that type of product.
As far as buying this to replace an original machie, i woudnt. As a first buy or for those that are buying a second machine anyways I would say go for it! The positives are: a larger brewing size (up to 16 oz, which personally I have made a good cup up to 12/14 oz settings with my own coffee), the “strong” option seems to make a large difference, the option for vue cups (if u can find them) and the pricepoint was on par with the smaller k-cup machine varieties.
looks like you will get the same variety pack with this as I did. Most were not that good, but its nice to try them for free, instead of buying some crap on your own and having to deal with a whole box. I mainly use my own varieties of coffee in the adapter as I drink way too much coffee to make any ‘cups’ economically feasible.
