Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by restathome Better water!
We moved to a new home and I don't like the aftertaste of the water out of the faucet. The water filter/dispenser on the door of our fridge is maddeningly slow, and this product took care of both problems!
This pitcher actually holds almost 3 quarts when full and since the filter reservoir is separate from the fill-spout, there's no reason to assume it can only hold 6 cups (see picture of what six cups looks like.) Any water you pour out will have already run through the filter. The pour spout is nearly drip-free but if the filter reservoir is full you'll have to be mindful of the water level when you tilt the pitcher.
You'll want to read the instructions. There's a few steps to setting it up for use (soak the filter for 10 minutes, wash, run water through, etc). The instructions are a little cryptic: 'fill the filter reservoir' is tricky when the water is running quickly out through the filter as you're filling it. You're also supposed to keep the pitcher partially full so the filter doesn't dry out. The box and instructions inexplicably use measurements like cups and liters interchangeably.
It seems arbitrary that the manufacturer recommends changing the filter every month; there's even a dial on the lid to record the change-the-filter date. The instructions note the filter is good for a certain number of liters...and I can't think of a good way to track that. I guess as long as the water tastes good, I'll stay with the filter, but I'm not inclined to change it every 30 days regardless of usage.
Speaking of filters, I plan to buy a replacement pack of filters right away. You have to wonder if obsolescence might be a problem in the future.
Overall, I'm happy with the product and the results!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DennisJ Best Pitcher I've Had
I've had several of these pitchers and haven't been happy with any of them. This one is different. The first thing I noticed, it's a good looking pitcher. It has a high quality look and feel to it. My two favorite things about this pitcher is, you don't have to remove the top and when you pour water from it, the water goes where it's intended, not all over the counter. The pitcher has a small pivoting door on top to add water. Quick easy and no mess. There's a change indicator on top, so you know when to change filters. The filters are great for removing all of those bad tasting things from your water. It tastes way cleaner and better than bottled water and saves money over the bottled water. Helps keep plastic out of our landfills too. It's an attractive pitcher, one that you won't mind company seeing. It has a narrow design, that fits easily in the refrigerator.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mark Personally, a waste of my time, and frustrating.
We used this in a hotel we stayed at, to avoid having to buy more bottled water. First, it seemed like a waste of time to just sit there with my hand in cold water for 10 minutes to get the filter ready for its first use. Second I had to run water through the unit 5 times before I could detect no sediment, not the 2 times the instructions said it would take. Then I would have to keep water in the unit to make sure that the filter would remain useful after I stored it, and it would only remain useful for a relatively short time anyway. There is really nothing more to say other than, I threw it away after 3 days, and I bought a case of bottled water in its stead.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CricketandDiva Superior water filtering pitcher
This water filter pitcher is 1,000 times better than Britta. I have terrible tasting tap water and this filter makes it taste great! Britta does not screen out the bad taste. With the Brondell I also have no scale at all in my kettle after 2 weeks of using it. So it is really doing an excellent job of filtering out everything. I wish I had this years ago.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ben62 Great tasting water
I chose this pitcher for my wife and daughter. Instead of half full bottles of water everywhere they now use the pitcher. They were very impressed with the great tasting water. Not sure about filter refills. I haven't changed the filter yet. Only comes with one filter.

Nice design and good product. I use both the H2O and the Brita and have not found any discernible difference. Product provides good tasting filtered water and the pitcher is perfect for counter top and fridge.

Love the anti-slip grip on the bottom of the pitcher, nice color and works great. The last pitcher I had was too big and I could not fill it as it was too heavy. This one is the perfect size.
