    Yep have to agree, I just got back from a few weeks out in Australia and I pretty much just used the noise cancelling on my Sony XM3s. Stupidly good at blocking everything out and they almost lasted me the whole flight there. I compared them to the wifeys Bose QC35’s and they were utterly crap...gave me a headache after awhile. Told the wifey to chuck them away, I’ve bought her a pair of xm3’s as she prefers them over the Bose.

    Yeah, own both and the QC35 noise cancelling is pants. Audio is fantastic but the Sony's are the better headphones all round imo

    Looks interesting but think it will struggle against my Breville one-cup and separate Brita water filter jug for cost efficiency.

    Probably more worthwhile if you have a bigger household with more people using it.

    From a cost perspective I can completely understand that, but being plumbed in is fantastic. You never need to fill it up and it’s not taking up space in the fridge!

    My parents have one, it does make some noise now and then so not sure it would work in an open plan living room kitchen space.

    The T7 looks much better, I never liked the look of the T6.

    Amazing during summer for cold drinks and the hot water is handy for filling a pot for cooking.

    The T7 was a fiver extra per month and I’m not sure I see the value in that. The installer recommend the T6 too when he came out.

    Wtf? Why on earth? Are you mental? This is literally the biggest waste of money ever.
    Please tell me how this is worth it...

    £280 a year for a water dispenser, plumbed into the same pipe as your tap. Your free tap.

    Not too bad to be honest. You obviously hear the chiller cooling the water and the hot water side bringing the temperature up but it’s in the kitchen along with all the other noisey appliances! :D

    It’s filtering and chilling the water and providing boiling water on tap too.

    Compare it too the cost of a water filter jug and a boiling water tap and it’s very reasonable.

    Your mileage may vary but for us the £ is worth it for our lifestyle.

    I’m considering one. Very useful as I work from home and my wife’s salon is at home as well.

    Monthly fee for cold filtered water and boiling water. Good lord.

    You do realise that boiling water and filtered water aren’t free?

    Surely a quooker tap is a far more elegant solution? That thing is ugly as sin

    £20 a month is more expensive than my entire water bill!

    Agreed the T6 is pretty ugly but the T7 is much much better.

    But this is the current topic and it is important! Not quite corner-sofa important, but still important. Dude bought a water filter, other dude says you can't taste the difference, dude disagrees, debate ensues...

    I'm a Brita jug user and can definitely taste the difference between my direct tap water and the filter.

    Start a dedicated thread in Home & Garden if you feel it's important ;)
