Any opinions on the build quality of the Quick Mill Vetrano 2B?   I am looking to possibly switch out my Alex Duetto 1 on this machine.

I own one and the build quality and attention to detail was one of the main reasons I purchased it!  I looked for a long time at many other machines including the Rocket R58, Vivaldi II, Alex Duetto 3.0, Rocket Giotto, Alex Tre . . . and I finally settled on the Vetrano 2B!!  It is a beautiful machine, extremely well made, quiet rotary pump operation, produces excellent steam, can be plumbed in, and most importantly, it makes amazing espresso!!  I feel it is well priced and one of the nicest DB machines on the market!  Quickmill makes a great product and have been around a long time!  There must be atleast 60+ people on this site who have purchased the Vetrano 2B from CCS in the past 6 months . . . that is a lot of happy customers!  Enjoy!

I have a QM67 - The 2B was not out when I got mine.  Mine has seen over 5K shots in 14 months according to the counter on my grinder.  Internally it is the same machine minus the pump.  It is solid.   The QM67 is by far the best value on the DB market but the exterior and addition of the rotary pump are better on the 2B.

Wow!  That's some serious espresso drinking! :) Must be a solid machine.  I was also looking at the LaMarzocco GS3, but I would have to start selling stuff to buy it.  This machine fits better into my budget, plus it sounds like a great machine.

Gary, you would also need a counter 6 feet long to accomodate the behemoth . . . LOL!  Good luck with your decision!

I did an engineering review on the prototype of what became the QM67...your right it is a nice little machine and nothing wrong with a vibe pump.

I noticed one consumer review stated they easily lost steam pressure when configured in the 15a mode.  Has anyone else experienced this?  I have my Duetto setup to run 20a, but don't remember ever having this issue when configured in the 15a mode.  

I don't use the steam very often anyways, but want to make sure it works when needed.

I have a V2B that I like just fine, but if you plan on rarely using the steam boiler, I think I would buy an HX. I don't think I would feel good about the water just sitting in the steam boiler for extended periods and not being used. How often do you think it will be used?
