Bottom Line: Excellent, high grade espresso and late. Commercial parts inside. Unfortunatley now in its 4th year the rust is attacking the structure, so I will lose it in 1-2 years :-(
Positive Product Points

Excellent quality of espresso and late. The milk is frothed to creamy consistency without any special effort.

Negative Product Points

Rusts. The chassis is not stainless steel and it is rusting profusely. Due to the rust, I think I will lose it in a year or two . This makes me rather sad as the rest of the machine is of commercial quality, with commercial parts.  It also explains the low rating for the quality of the product. The "guts" are commercial, but the chassis is made from a 1970's Fiat car body.

Detailed Commentary

Makes excellent and highly consistent coffee. In fact anyone that tries my coffee, especially lates ends up very spoiled. They find it difficult to find similar quality in the cafes.

But, as I said, it rusts. After 4 years of ownership the rust is getting quite bad and now it is attacking the boiler and reservoir braces so the machine will suffer structural failure in a few more years.

The rest of the parts are all brass and fully commercial. I even have it serviced without a problem by a commercial espresso maintenance company.
