Bottom Line: I will continue using this machine until it wears-out again and parts are obsolete.  As long as I continue to get the crema and taste I've experienced during the last few months, I see no immediate need to invest in an upgrade.

Bottom Line: Good value, a great starter machine or one for your office (think of the $$ you'd save). Hard to beat on price/quality of shot.
