      I have had this unit for a few months now. It works well and quickly. The only issue is that the machine needs constant filling. There is a good sized water reserve, but as soon as the unit reaches below this predetermined point, it stops making ice. It's minor, just an inconvenience considering the remaining water left to be used is still better than a 2/3 of the reserve in the holding area. So, a few times a day, I have to add about 2 cups of water to keep ice being produced. The unit can be hooked up to a water line, so that would eliminate that issue. I am on a well, so I prefer bottled water. It is a large unit. Larger than I thought when I purchased it. If I put it all the way back on my counter and under the cabinets, I cannot open the lid. I placed it on a dish towel, so I can easily slide it back and forth. The towel seems to work well with the sliding back and forth. All in all, it is a good unit. Produces a good amount of ice in a short period of time. If you have a water line, it will do wonderfully for you. If not and you have to add water, it is a minor inconvenience.
