I had been considering buying a Tassimo brewer since late 2011 but decided it wasn't a necessity in my life. When I saw that Amazon.ca had such a great deal on in April 2013 I thought "well, now's the time to try it!". I looked at MANY reviews both on Amazon and other sites. I even went to Tassimo's own website and watched all their little videos on the different brewing systems. I chose the T46 mainly because I liked the look of it (and the price!). It arrived in a few short days (I chose free super saver shipping) and after the initial run through with the orange T-disc and rinsing of the Mavea filter I made my first in-house Tassimo Latte. I'll admit it's not the BEST tasting coffee ever (but it certainly isn't the WORST tasting either!). It does make a bit of noise as it gears up to make your drink, which it is supposed to do, but it is quick and easy to use with minimal clean-up afterwards. It doesn't come with free T-discs so if you are hoping to make drinks right away you'll need to go out and buy some in advance (there is an offer in the box for free samples once you register your system online).
All in all I am really happy with my Tassimo T46 brewer; it's a nice size, it is a hard working little machine & was worth the wait.
