First off, verified purchase through Amazon from a self professed (and often accused) coffee snob. Second...while I know that people have differing experiences with the same product due to a host of valid reasons, posts claiming that not having a pod holder making this brewer "useless" and 1 staring it? Sorry, pet peeve about entitled personage hyperbole. My review is going to be blunt and perhaps a little stinging out of my annoyances about such idiotic reviews/comments cropping in, I'll try to keep that to a minimum.

Short version for the attention deficit: This gizmo brews a damn fine cup of coffee, you'll have to experiment with settings with the Do-Your-Own refillable k-kups (especially if you grind your own beans) and buying just prepackaged k-kups if that's your thing is brand reliable (meaning the taste is reliable on a brand by brand basis). The quality along with the convenience (even with DYO refillables) is IMO the best in the industry and it has a lot of customization features to exploit with just a tiny bit of effort and some light reading.

Full review:

The biggest complaint is about Keurig restricting what you can brew for coffee/tea. Yes, old K-Cup solutions are on the out. I had a old brewer and 3 different DYO coffee pods, ranging from nylon, to gold plated mesh, and even mini-filters. None of them work with this brewer. Note the 5 stars? I pitched those old DYO coffee pods and bought the 24K GOLD Keurig Accessories from MaxBrew. Problem solved and it pays for itself after you've gone through your first 5lbs of beans (which for me is 3-4 weeks). Also if you buy the small/large bundle from Maxbrew it comes with 3 filters which if you already use filtered water as I hope you would, these will last a very long time.

I owned a old deluxe when they came on market several years ago and after about 18 months it blew out on me and though I liked it, I often had issue with the strength of the brew and how expensive the kups were to make up for how relatively thin the coffee's taste. When DYO kups came onto market the expense factor went away, but the brew strength was still a issue for me and the only way to solve that at the time was to pack more grinds or make them finer than what the brewer was designed to handle.

This new line solves that problem by using the "stronger brew" option. Now, this doesn't take 3 tablespoons of grinds and blow the hair follicles off your skull with "OH-MAH-GAWD-STRONG-MAH-NIPPLES-IS-HARD!" coffee , some common sense here. What the brewer does is pump the water at a slower rate through the kup, letting the grinds saturate more along with a slower flood rate. That doesn't sound like much of of a improvement but it does make a difference, guests who like a weaker brew than I do, using the same amount of grinds and amount of water, would state the 'strong' brew was noticeably stronger than what they prefer while the standard was just right.

I believe I blew out my older Keurig by overloading the system with both the amount of grind and how fine of one I was using in order to get a taste more to my liking. Also that system didn't have the ability to adjust how much fluid was used, it was the same amount each time. This brewer lets me go from 4-30 oz. Did I mention custom settings? You lower the lid and depending on the type of kup you got loaded (either DYO or store bought) a menu pops up that lets you hot key settings for the carafe size, I.E. I typically load up mugs ranging from 12-16 oz, 3 different numbers that when the sensor detects the type of pod, I select the number and go off to take care of a quick chore while it brew like...file my teeth or something.

By experimenting with the amount of fluid, both for the carafe size and the regular cup size, I know what my taste range is, also grinding my own beans by using the strong brew settings, i can use a coarser grind which allows for better water flow through the DYO cup and doesn't overtax the pump. These are very significant improvements from earlier models. Granted it doesn't have a wireless sensor to hook up to your brain and decode what you like better than you know yourself and then deliver it, but what does?

For those interested: I have a breville grinder that goes from press to espresso, I typically use a setting that's squarely in the middle of the "Drip" range. I took apart a few k-cups from my preferred brands and examined their grinds under a jewelers magnifying glass till I was satisfied I was matching the grind of the prepacked vendors, and experimented a great deal with finer and coarser grinds. This delivered the best profile of taste and performance for my preferences.

Now about the officially endorsed pods, yes its true that Keurig is trying to make extra buck here and there with this. But here's what I've found. The brands that have the license are all available in my local grocery stores already, ranging from your disgusting cheap generics to the sublime Peets. I buy these for use at work because what they serve there is either paint thinner or yesterday's dishwasher fluid. At home I use the Maxbrew pods to fantastic effect and can buy any bean I want, grind it up, and load it up without any issue what so ever. The things people get worked up over =P

I own a absurd variety of coffee brewers: Drip, high end espresso machine, aeropress, moka, pour over, siphon, press and even Ethiopian kettle. While I don't roast my own beans (yet) i am fully willing to do the work needed via these different systems to make a great cup of coffee and I have over time (sorry if this sounds a bit vain on my part) earned praise from coworkers and friends of my command of making coffee. I favor black, without doctoring it any with creamers or sugars and here is the one line that I hope will put your mind at ease with this brewer:

This is my favorite system to brew coffee with.

I've tested it against ALL of those brewers, each brings a subtle quality that a experienced palate will be able to notice, but I have to stress the word subtle. Prior to this brewer, I greatly favored the french press for the body of flavor it gave me along with its ease of use. However, the K475 delivers a taste that is so close to my press that while I can tell the difference, its not enough to make me reach for the press anymore. This took some time and experimenting, getting the grind down, cup size, heat, all that. End result is quality beans used in this brewer yields quality coffee...even without a pod holder =P. Again I have to stress, you may have ...yes I'm going to say it...read the manual...to get all the features it offers down to your tastes, that's 10 minutes well spent.

How long will this unit hold out? That is a good question, it sees a lot of use from me and my review is after owning it for a month and putting it through its paces. Most appliances only last 2-5 years because they're designed to fail to keep units selling to repeat customers, but honestly if I only get 2 years out of this i won't mind. My impression is it'll last longer, as its fairly sturdy despite being largely plastic.

Finally, if you found my review helpful, i'd appreciate a button vote, but if I crossed a line or if I didn't address something you thought was key, fire a comment my way and I'll both answer the comment and do a rewrite to include the info for other readers.

4-11-17 UPDATE:
After some very pleasant experiences with Keurig.com I would strongly recommend you register your brewer, you get a marvelous intro discount offer for your first 5 boxes of any size and if you're willing to endure a bit of email promotion, they regularly hit your inbox with discounts of most brands making the option to stock up reasonably economical. I still prefer to grind my own beans, but I take advantage of their sales from time to time to have k-kups to take to work as the coffee there is now included as a vital ingredient in the pesticide. Or maybe I'm just really spoiled.

The brewer itself is still a joy to use and reminds you to descale it once a month on autopilot, but not because your heating chamber is gasping and clawing at you from a lime and mineral encrusted hell. Its just nudging you to do regular maintenance, though IMHO brewing a tank (or two if its been a while) of white vinegar, followed by 2 tanks of rinse brewing works just as well as the more expensive solutions on the market. I'd suggest you let the vinegar "simmer" in the heating tank between brews as that gives the vinegar's acid more time to clean the heating coil and piping, I usually give it 5 minutes between each brew cycle. And unless you like coffee that'll give you a twitch storm to put Kramer (from Seinfeld) to shame, run those two rinsing tanks. Trust me on this. Two tanks.

Great coffee maker! Love the programmable brew settings. I personally like my coffee very strong and have always shied away from Keurigs due to the fact that the coffee tends to be on the weak side. However the new machines have a "strong brew" setting which really makes a difference.

It should also be noted if reading the other reviews that this machine does NOT have the K-Cup DRM (the restriction that prevents you from using the older cups). In response to the HUGE amount of consumer outrage, Keurig quietly removed the programming from the machines -denoted by model numbers ending in 25 or 75. The machines look and operate the same, however models ending in 00 or 50 will not let brew in older cups or ones not licensed by Keurig.

Ever since I bought my mother a similar 2.0 model over a year ago and been using it weekly, I've been waiting for my old one to die so that I could replace it with this. Although the old one is still going strong, we decided to find another place for it. I bought this one without hesitation.

To be clear, this model is not a must-have in the Keurig line since more basic models selling for less do the job -- more on that later. I love certain aspects of this: a bigger water tank, the ability to choose four different cup sizes, a strong brew option, and an easy-to-read display. The settings are more or less easy to navigate, and I like that I can set a default cup size and brew strength since my husband and I like to push and brew. The electronic controls can do a lot more: change the brew temperature; select a special hot cocoa cycle; allow you to select the "wallpaper" or background color of your display; set the clock; change languages (English, French, Spanish); set to high altitutde brewing; remind you to change the water filter (if using); warn you that you need to descale. Most of this stuff isn't necessary -- it's just nice to have.

This machine can also brew a carafe, although it doesn't come with the carafe. You need to buy special large pods to do that.

Although this model is shaped differently from my previous Elite model, it takes up about the same amount of counter space. If counter space is at a premium, though, you might want to consider the single cup models even though they have serious disadvantages such as convenience. In my opinion, to get full usage out of any Keurig model, you need to have a water reservoir that will hold more than two cups and the ability to choose cup sizes up to 10-ounces. (10 ounces is our default, although this machine can brew a 12-ounce mug.) Since the pods all contain the same amount of grounds, each progressively larger cup produces a slightly weaker brew, although the "strong" setting on this machine does make a difference. Also, choose your K-cups with care since not all are created equal. Because I like bold coffee, it took me a while to discover that I liked the Peet's, Starbucks, and Barista brands the best, with Green Mountain Double Diamond coming in close behind. This does come with a handful of sample K-cups but not really enough to get a good idea of what to buy if you're new to Keurig.

This is a luxury Keurig with settings galore, which makes it perfect for people who intend to use it on a daily basis. It would make an excellent wedding or shower gift. For me, though, it's a treat. My husband uses it every day because he likes coffee at night when I have cut myself off from caffeine. I use it when he's away or when I awake before dawn, and it doesn't make sense to brew a whole pot right then. I have family members, though, who use their Keurig exclusively, having done away completely with auto drip coffee.

K475 is a coffee maker I researched before deciding which Keurig to purchase. I bought the red one and I think it looks very nice if larger and a bit heavier than I expected. This is not their most compact model. But it is feature-rich and I liked it quite a bit. It does make a bit of chugging noise when it pumps the water for an individual cup from the large water reservoir, but I like the fact I don't have to measure and pour water for every cup I make, so I'm not expecting this to be whisper quiet. However, it does not make the coffee in your usual store brand k-cups as strong as the older smaller Keurig, even on the "strong" setting.

It is very important to read all of the simple directions in order to know what to expect from this particular unit. This is a 2.0 which means that it still uses your supermarket's K-Cup coffee brands, but it takes an updated design of the reusable K-Cup -- which is not included herein. The carafe is not included either. I would not try to use your previous reusable third-party K-Cups as they are likely to leak. Instead purchase a couple of the new Keurig reusable K-Cups and stick with them from the get-go.

The touch screen controls are simple and intuitive but you need to be sure to read the part where, in order to turn the coffee maker Off, you must hold the power icon for a second. If you just tap the power icon, nothing will happen, and you may get the misimpression the touch screen is not working.

Manufacturers are beginning to provide their name brand K-Cups with a coded top, which the 2.0 models can read and prepare more perfectly adjusted cups of coffee. But the manufacturers' K-Cup coffees without the coded tops can still be used normally. At least so far.

I'm over all pleased with this new feature rich Keurig. The red one looks a little like a jukebox, but what the heck, maybe it will be a conversation piece at parties... ;-D

Just to start off this is my second Keurig coffee machine. The last one I had was smaller and no touch pad, it's still going strong 5 years later. I only purchased this one to upgrade, and so my spouse could take old one to work. I have been drawn to the Keurig design since I first saw it. I am one of those people that does not drink multiple cups of coffee a day. Usually I have one cup in the morning and I am good to go. So the ability to brew one cup at a time fits exactly what I need. The ability to brew one cup at a time also gives you the liberty of having different drinks per person. Who wants to walk to a pot of coffee and be stuck drinking what the last person wanted. Me, my wife, and my daughter all have different flavors of coffee we drink, it's great. This particular Keurig machine has a 70oz water tank which lasts quite a bit longer than the smaller models. This machine is capable of using K-cup pods, K-mug pods, and even K-carafe pods!! So if you have the Keurig carafe this would make a excellent addition to it. All Keurig machines are user friendly, this one is no different. Soon as you fill up the water, has a handy front flap on top for easy refills, the screen lights up and walks you through the setup process. After your finished with that and are ready to brew your first cup you pull up on the chrome handle and pop in your K-cup. I noticed that the bay the cup sits in seemed loose. This is so that the other pods (mug,carafe) that are larger can also go in. Upon closing the lid everything shut nice and tight. At this point you are greeted with a brew screen, here you can change the desired size of your coffee, and how strong you would like it. When you are satisfied with your brewing selection just put your digits to the round black Keurig symbol and push. This machine does have a clock and an auto on/off function that can be set to times. These machines vary in price depending on how fancy you want to go. This one is kinda in the middle. I chose to go with Amazon for my purchase cause you can always find a pretty good deal.

Before buying this product I read a lot of reviews and researched like crazy to see what kinds of features I needed in a Keurig. I must say that the main concern that I saw in the reviews was that the Digital Rights Management controlled what type of K cups would be accepted in the 2.0 brewers, but what I have found out is that a lot of aftermarket or brand Kcups that aren't affiliated with Keurig are making their lids compatible with this model so there is really no need to have to hack it. I can buy kcups through other companies at a much lower price and their kcup tops pass through that DRM system so that I am able to enjoy my favorite cup of joe at a way better price than the competitors.

I love the machine I bought. The one I order was the K475 plus 2017 model which they have redone a couple of things on this model like the lip on the DRM area so that clips to bypass this reader will be prohibited, but it doesn't really matter anymore cause coffee makers are making Kcups compatible with this brewer. All it is is a color around the edge of the Kcup. Really pleased with the convenience of this brewer though - especially how much water it holds. I love the light and all the amazing features that this machine offers in comparison to the K55, which I almost bought. If you're reading this it is really a matter of what you're going to use it for. If you want to spend the extra 20 bucks or less for the color screen, larger water container, and all the goodies. This model has a high altitude temp adjustment so at higher altitudes (colorado) the machine will adjust the temp since water boils at a lower temp at higher altitudes. Such a great machine too. I believe it is quiet and many different temp options, ounce options, and way more. Overall very pleased with this model

The only thing I didn't know the 425s that comes with way more goodies was the same 400 series I bought. I would recommend if you have a Sam's club account go through them cause you will get the 400 series (same Keurig as 475) wiith way more goodies 3 kcup packets (16 each) and a keurig reusable filter and more with that purchase. Super pleased though with this product. Would definitely recommend.

I originally bought the K55, but I wasn't that happy with the quality of it. To me it just seemed very cheaply made, considering I was replacing the original model, what everyone is saying in the reviews is true. I guess it would have been fine, but I'm so happy I spent a little extra money to get this one....I absolutely love it, we shall see how long it holds up ;)

I cant go a day w/o coffee ever again :(

OK so I bought this machine to replace my original Keurig that would use any cup from any manufacturer.

I bought this on 9/12/16 and I knew that this was only going to use Keurig 2.0 cups, but I saw that there were many different hacks on youtube.

Let me just say that the hacks work GREAT!!! The fact that you can easily bypass the sensor turned this from a 1 star to 5 star. And I'm not talking about taping a Keurig 2.0 lid to the sensor. I'm talking about a permanent hack. Just check it out on youtube and search "Keurig permanent hack".

And I just so happened to have a perfect size magnet that fits inside the machine and doesn't take up any room, so now I have full menus too all the time. But if the magnet fails, it was so easy to disable the sensor I don't think I would hesitate to hack the menu system as well.
So if you're worried about buying this machine because of the K-cup 2.0 technology, don't be. Check out youtube first and see if it's something you're willing to do. I was and am extremely happy so far.

Makes a great cup of coffee and has a lot of advance features (different sizes, temperature settings, wallpaper, clock display, many presets, etc.). I deducted a star for the stupid DRM. For those wanting to "hack" by cutting the green wire, don't! If you open it up, there are actually two green wires, one in the back (smaller ~24 gauge) and one in the front bottom (~20 gauge) of the unit. Cutting/disconnecting the rear wire will render the unit unless. It will not brew anything. Cutting/disconnecting the front wire doesn't appear to do anything, that I can tell. The only thing I can think of is Keurig mixed up the wires to confuse us "normal folks" so we'll buy their 2.0 k-cups. I guess it's back to taping a valid 2.0 label on to the sensor to "fool" the system. I will continue to research and will post updates as I get them.

I'm a keurig user but I've always wanted a bigger one. I had purchased some large quantity k-cups because I don't use my regular coffee pot anymore. So I bought the k-475 brewer but then I got nervous thinking the k-cups wouldn't work in the new brewery because they weren't keurig brand. Well to my delight they do. I'm handicapped so TV and coffee is the big part of my day. I love the new 475 and all of the cool features. I now have a backup brewer. I would recommend this to anyone who is a serious coffee drinker. Oh and now I can buy a keurig carafe and brew large amounts of great coffee. Treat yourself to this brewer.
