Big reservoir, tiny, slow, internal cooling pot.

I must be missing something here, or perhaps mine is faulty. I don't think it is though. Here's the problem.
You have a nice big tank on top which holds all the nicely filtered water. However, inside is a tiny little tank which is actually chilled. If you deplete this tank, say by having a glass of water, it refills from the top and starts the chilling process all over. This would be fine except it takes hours and hours to get the temperature down at all. I'm better off keeping a 0.5 litre bottle of water in the fridge and just filling it up. It won't be filtered, but I wanted chilled, filtered was just a bonus.
So that's the issue. If you only want a little chilled water occasionally, keep a bottle in the fridge. If you want a lot of filtered water on tap, this will do reasonably well. If you want a lot of chilled water on tap, look elsewhere.
While we're on the filtering, I've given it two stars (instead of one) because you can get filters sufficient for a year for about twenty quid. That's not bad compared to some other makes.
