Bottom Line: The Rolex of espresso machines
Positive Product Points

Working parts are of the highest quality and shot quality is just as good. A real prosumer machine

Negative Product Points

PID controls are a bit of a learning curve

Detailed Commentary

This is the Rolex of espresso machines, costs as much as one too! Like Rolex, LM has a history of making industry leading products with a great attention to detail. They didn't skimp on quality when then decided to make a machine for the home. Most of the parts they use can be found on their high end commercial machines and craftsmanship is also equal.
Note that as this is essentially a mini version of the machines found in cafes (GS3 can also be used commercially), it requires regular maintenance. The good news is, you can do this yourself easily ordering parts and following videos found on YouTube.

Buying Experience

Excellent. Clive Coffee has great service
