Positive Product Points

Cheap, unpretentious and kind of good looking.

Negative Product Points

Coffee is ho-hum. Steamer is worse.  That glass pot for catching the coffee is so easy to break and you have nearly buy a new machine to replace it.

Detailed Commentary

Many people have owned these machines over the years and they almost always are a learning experience.  They can produce drinkable coffee, but they will never coax the best out of any coffee.  The steaming is more than a bit of pain, but yes the "Perfect Froth" attachment does help, it just means there is one more part to have get milk-crusted and stinky.

My recommendation: if you love cappuccino, get a low-end pump Saeco or something like it (for about $65 more).  If you just want something to turn out quasi-espresso, go for a stove top pot for about $45-$50 less.

Buying Experience

They're everywhere, still.  I think I got mine at W-S
