Bottom Line: Horrible machine for the $150 price it carries.  More water than steam comes out of the steaming pipe.
Positive Product Points

If all you want is a machine to make a quick cup of espresso then this one would be fine but you can get that in machines for 1/3 the price.

Negative Product Points

I tried to steam some milk and ended up with so much water pumped into the milk I had to throw it out.

Detailed Commentary

I owned the machine for one day and am returning it.  It has to be one of the worst espresso machines I have ever owned!  I have had much better performance out of machines at 1/3 the cost of this one.   Not worh the $150 price tag it carries especially if it can't steam a pitcher of milk without diluting to the point of white water.  Although it has a clean look adn can make a cup of espresso quickly it is worhtless to me if it cna't steam milk.  Why does it pump so much water into the milk?  I have had machines in the  past that would quickly steam a pitcher of milk without adding large amounts of water.  This machine added 2.5 oz. of water to 10 oz. of milk and took forever to heat it to 160 degrees.
