This Brita has been in my fridge for the past year, and is shared between my two other roommates and I. It makes a huge difference being able to drink fresh and chilled water. My only complaint is that the fill up tank part is a little too small, and takes a while to drip into the main tank. For the amount of water three people drink, we fill this up at least four or five times a day, so I'd suggest going up a size if you're sharing! But I will say, it delivers on it's promises!
