i ordered this a couple of days ago and i must give kudos to the company for shipping speed. all compliments aside, the product photos are not true to life. it is correct that the piece is around 14 inches tall but the base is listed as being 5" (i'm pretty sure they meant 5" lengthwise but its incorrect up, down, forwards, and backwards.) and that is not the case. another issue that i've found with this piece is that the turbine perc in the product photos runs deeper into the water reservoir than the one i received. the result of the itsy bitsy turbine perc is a short lived whirlpool that collapses into a mess of bubbles in a matter of seconds. i'm including an imgur album with some photos of the piece that was sent to me so you can compare what is presented and what to expect. after everything is said and done, this haul left me feeling like i ordered Pepsi and instead received Bepis. Definitely not worth the $119. Buyers be aware!
