I bought this machine halfway through college. Although i did not have very much money, it made more sense to me to go prosumer than spend $300 - $500 on a machine i would always think was a compromise. After plenty of research I decided on the Millenium because of it's reviews, design, and price point. What I thought I wanted was a professional machine, not a prosumer. Now I have owned the Mellenium for three years. I click it on every morning and it makes me a great shot. Every morning, never once have I been even mildly disappointed. The consistency and quality have made me grow to love this machine and the decision I made to buy it more every day. I would not trade this machine for a professional machine, even if i were rich.
Bought as opened/returned item through Ebay from one of the big online espresso retailers. I forget who. got a deal because it had a very small ding on one side. It just came and worked. Cannot be simpler.
