    I didn't want the old-fashioned upside-down water cooler for my office, so I took a chance on this, but worried in the back of my head that the mechanism that draws the water up would be cheap and it wouldn't last. I happy my worries were unfounded and I'm extremely happy with the purchase. The mechanism that draws the water up is a sturdy long straw that goes to the bottom of the water container and clamps securely to the top of the container. The unit is durable (I accidentally slammed a desk into it while I was moving and absolutely nothing happened to the unit). The cooler is also stylish, quiet, and cranks out ice cold water and hot water in short order. There's also a nightlight that illuminates the tray/spout area. Initial setup takes maybe 3 minutes. I would recommend this product to anyone.

    Trying my luck on the second unit

    bought my first unit online from BBB and the unit was dead on arrival. Just the pump worked, the hot and cold functions did not work. Immediately packed it back up and returned it to the store. I read a lot of bad reviews online on this product looks like it's a 50-50 chance of making it past the first year. I bought a new unit with an extended warranty and Best Buy's immediate exchange or return policy makes it worth a try. Most website offers extended warranty after the manufacturer warranty expires and its still a pain to get it shipped back and forth during the manufacturer warranty. Bestbuys warranty starts from day and it's less hassle as I can return it to the store for full refund. Will see how far this unit survives.

    I thought this one came with an LED light for use at night but I guess that is only on certain models. It has too switches on the back: one for heat and the other for cooling. So you do have the option to dispense room temperature water if you like. It has an indicator light for when the 5 gallon bottle becomes empty. I'm disappointed that the "straw connector" does not set completely on the "Primo type" bottles so there is always a little watter left at the bottom. I cannot fit a 20oz bottle onto the shelf but regular 16oz bottles fit. Overall it works great. Saves room in the fridge without having water bottles and saves money.

    Just what I wanted

    Live in a a small apartment with my children was concerned with their ability to make a mess of the water. This dispenser was just what I wanted. Child proof so they cannot reach the buttons and not get hot water without my help. Down side there is no lock on the door so i had to tape it down to avoid my children getting in. Not a huge dealbreaker as clear tape kept my 1 year old from further investigating. Just glad I don't have to lift a 5 gallon jug of water!

    I love it. I have used better though. The cold water takes time to get cold and its easy to change out the water bottles. The Pros: its give you hot and cold water The Cons: temp is not as hot or cold as I would like. Takes time to heat and cool water, Product feels cheaply made compared to similar prices comparable products, noisy, and uses more power than I would have thought. If I had to do it over again, I would do a little more research. I do love it and it works, but just feels cheap and I want the hot water to be hotter and the ice cold water to be colder.

    After using the rental cooler from Poland spring for the past 5 years and now this I can tell you there is no comparison to the Primo. Very easy to use you don't have to worry about it splashing all over your wall when you put a new water on. You Just open The bottom up pull out the old one put the tube in the new one and then close it. The hot is great and do is the cool and colder settings.

    I've been using Brita Filters for 15 years - from spout tips to refrigerator tanks, I've used them all. But, as with everything in life, I realized that there are better products out there. As I was browsing Water Dispensers on Amazon, I came across the Primo. Reviews were outstanding on all of the websites, so I went into Best Buy to check it out. Unfortunately, the local store didn't have a huge selection, so I had to go to a few others. The Appliance Section reps walked me through everything online, reviewed other sites and even matched the lowest price out there.

    Sleek looking water cooler

    I'm impressed with this cooler. I went through two other models before this one and this one is cool-er than the others. The hot water feature works great! The family can use it straight from the tap to make ramen noodles and even Jell-O. The room temperature vs the cold is a little deceptive though as the room temp water comes out almost as cold as the cold water. My only critique would be that I wished the water would come out quicker. I'm in a situation where I need to use this cooler for all my cooking and coffee making so it takes a while to fill the pots.
