mixed feelings - build quality & materials GREAT, design SUFFERS. I had to return and will recommend you stay away b/c clearly they found a design flaw and instead of fixing it they put a bad band-aid around it. The short - it leaks from the bottom of the tray to the front of the cooler. It's slow drip but as result over few hours you have a puddle. I found it when I stepped in one on the floor already sipping into the wall. If you must buy it - put it in a deep tray and also consider you'll be losing lots of water on leakage (not drinking it). SHAME - b/c the machine works GREAT, built great and simply lazy lack of discipline to fix a small design fault renders it unusable (probably b/c by time they discovered it, they had many already machines and produced) BTW - it takes a few days till this starts happening and perhaps that is why they didn't notice it early on - perhaps the "low lips" around the bottom rail of the plastic frame holding the tray (see pictures) is flattened as you pull the tray and put it back - don't know - but sure enough, the problem is real.

    it is very good. We have 30 people here at the office and this works good for everyone. Plus it does not take the much space.

    The ice cubes are small and hollow. There's always water in the bottom of the ice cube tray. Drain plug had a leak which I fixed. It does make a lot of ice.

    This is a tiny little ice maker that only holds 2lbs of ice!!! I am completely disgusted with this so called 40lb wording. The refridgerator holds more ice. And you have to put a watee cooler style water jug on the top as it has no water connection. This is a protable baby ice maker.

    It made lots of ice quickly but had no freezer compartment to store frozen ice. The pull out plastic tray just keeps the ice as it melts. We returned the ice maker.
