Perfect cup of coffee
Strengths: Ease of use, convenience, speed, options, low maintenance, variety
I bought this as a housewarming gift for someone who has the B-50 (I have a B-50 too). This is for the summer house. She couldn't be happier. The coffee is piping hot and the cups are plentiful even at the smaller setting. The machine has a small enough footprint that doesn't horde counter space. K-cups are available locally and online.
At first I thought a Keurig was a luxury and the coffee was just ok since I'm more of a Starbucks than DD coffee taste. Since I found the GM Double Black Diamond I'm thrilled. I take that down to their summer house when I visit.
I use my Keurig almost daily since I can grab a cup on the fly and not waste coffee in a brewed pot if I'm short on time.

This is the greatest kitchen appliance I have ever owned.
Strengths: Fast, quality, quiet, easy, nothing to clean.
The Keurig B40 is the greatest home coffee machine for your home or boat that I have ever had the pleasure of using. It is simply the best way to wake up in the morning whether you are going into work and need a quick cup of coffee for the road or if you are going to laze in bed with the crossword puzzle and want the quality morning you deserve. The best part about it is the lack of clean-up after you are done. I mean, throw the K-Cup away and you're all set!

2 years and No trouble; great tasting coffee
Strengths: Fast; really hot
Weakness: Noisy while warming
Makes excellent tasting coffee. We use pods but most of the time we fill our own pods with our favorite coffees

Keurig B40 "elite" brewer
Strengths: coffee quality and consistent brew
Coffee is great but the brewer noise is terrible. The noise is from the pump refilling the internal chamber for water heating. The brewer is new so scaling is not an issue. I placed the brewer on a special acoustic foam pad. I’m an engineer and I took sound level readings. This is what I found in my kitchen:
67 dB, Dishwasher while in wash mode
72 dB, microwave warming dinner
85 dB, coffee brewer
The coffee brewer is the loudest appliance in the kitchen! OSHA sets 90dB as the sound level at which sustained exposure may result in hearing loss. I’m using the OSHA number just to illustrate how ridiculously load the brewer is.

Buy at your own risk
Strengths: Looks cool. Great marketing.
Weakness: Does not work.
I bought this for my wife. When we turned it on, all LED lights flash. I have confirmed on the web that I am not the only person to have this problem. I have also confirmed through a web search that this is a fatal error for this product.
Look at their website before you buy. You will note that you cannot do a search and find "troubleshoot". Tells you the product is about markething rather than support. Can't tell you how the coffee is, it never made one cup.

Elite Gourmet B-40 Coffee Maker
Strengths: Easy to use-great selection of coffees
This machine is perfect for those who want a quick cup of coffee. It brews a great cup of coffee and I like the idea of having a variety of K-cups on hand. Each day I can experience a different flavor. I like too that I can brew tea or hot chocolate with this machine.

Quick cup of coffee any time.
Love the convenience of making a cup of coffee any time I want without all the fuss of setting up a traditional coffee maker. Also, keeps me to limit what I drink.

Superb Cup of Coffee
What A GREAT cup of coffee. On the market today are countless different coffees available to you, including Dunkin Donut et al. This one is bundled with a box of different ones from which to choose (Italian, French...lite, heavy or decafinated etc), in case you just hit upon the one you love. And hot? This cup is REALLY hot! You'll love it. Jury is out though re: long range durability of unit. Enjoy!

Weakness: Same cycle for all discs.
Tried it multiple times and it's variants. Same ole, same ole. Tassimo has it beat hands down. Several friends have vowed to ditch theirs for the Tassimo. The Bosch Tassimo reads a bar code on the disc & brews a custom cup. All factors i.e., amount & temp of the water, brew time, & steam out, work to perfection for each flavor. I can brew a double expresso & my wife can do an Earl Grey tea right afterword & she cannot taste any left over coffee. IT WORKS.
