CNET and TopTenReviews both offer reviews about Bunn coffee makers. TopTenReviews gives the Bunn line a score of 7.63 out of 10. The simplicity of operation is a selling point, as well as its programmable features and quality flavor. However, its lack of optional features detracts from its score.
The CNET editors rated the Bunn Velocity Brew BT 3 1/2 stars out of 5. The strong points of this coffee maker include the speed with which it makes coffee, but its plastic innards do not impress the editors, nor do the lack of a water-level indicator, display or usable controls. This machine also requires Bunn brand filters.
