Only lasted 4 months

I had some of the same problems as the other reviewer, and I can't agree with him or her more. The bottom part of the carafe fell off after a few months. Before that, using it was mostly a pain. The biggest problem for me was that the top of the carafe was EXTREMELY difficult to take off and screw on - which occasionally led to coffee spilling all over the counter. In additon, the coffee was not very hot, nor did it stay warm for long (despite being a "thermal carafe"). The buttons and readout were ok, but seeing that I have to replace this unit so soon, I feel that it was not worth the price at all.
