This is an okay coffeemaker, and makes a pretty good cup of coffee. It doesn't have any programming options or fancy features, which I wouldn't expect for something at this price, and to be honest, I don't really use or care for options on my coffeemakers. I just want to put in the water and grounds, and push the on button. The compact size is also great for my tiny kitchen, and the outside is fairly easy to clean. I've had my white model for about a year, and I'm only now seeing any coffee staining, located behind the coffee carafe. My coffeemaker is basically always in use, and has held up well for the most part. However, this does have a tendency to leak from somewhere when the coffee is brewing. I cannot for the life of me figure out where the leak is coming from, but I do notice coffee under the coffeemaker. For now, this works, but when I buy another coffeemaker I probably will not repurchase this one.
