Keurig 2.0 K500 Review and News - Pictures and Video

Keurig 550 20 brewer

CNET has a feature on Keurig 2.0 and the K500 model brewer. The full photo slideshow is at: The K500 is Keurig 2.0's flagship brewer and you can see their video review here. The K500 AKA the Keurig 2.0 550 model left them feeling bitter. What made them feel bitter? For them the only reason to buy the Keurig 2.0 550 brewer is to get the ability to brew a carafe of coffee, and since the DRM prevents you from using unlicensed K-Cups the value is just not their for this new brewer. 

For us the ability to brew with the carafe is interesting, and being able to use the recyclable VUE format along with K-Cups is a plus. We'll have to see whether it leaves a bitter taste for us. We're hoping the claims of it also being a better K-Cup brewer hold true, and that brewing K-Cups in Keurig 2.0 makes better coffee, tea, and other drinks.

I read the CNET review and they make a great point about the DRM. It's really quite lame on Green Mountains part. They enjoyed their 17 years of patent protection. Hacking your machine to prevent the use of unlicensed lawfully produced product isn't innovation, it's sour grapes. Bad move on their part, this machine is going to end up like the VUE. If someone discovers a meaningful reason to upgrade, please post. IMO being about to use VUE cups isn't one of them. The market has already spoken about the VUE... it's a flop.

There is nothing beneficial for the consumer with this new machine. This is for Keurig's protecting its proprietary k-cups.

One of the reasons (or selling points) for me to buy into the SS model 10 years ago was each cup fresh (as opposed to a pot that goes stale(er) by the minute.

I still wouldn't brew a carafe, and I draw the line at my 23 oz French press (I drink the whole thing reasonably quickly), so I still want to know the selling point for this machine.
