Bottom Line: Great machine and a great deal if you buy it reconditioned or used
Positive Product Points

Great espresso without a lot of hassle. I roast my own beans and I've yet to find an espresso at a cafe, or on a friend's machine (including the Slyvia) that tastes better.

Negative Product Points

Just a tad messy, but not too bad.

Detailed Commentary

This machine pulls a great espresso shot! It's easly to use, very forgiving either with or without the crema disc. I know the disc is frowned upon, but I get richer crema with it and my shots taste better, so sue me :o) I bought my machine on Ebay about two years ago for about $150. After about a year I had to replace the gasket around the portafilter, but this was no problem. I have friends with a Rancillio Sylvia who use and roast the same beans as I do, and my shots blow them away. They have a Solis Maestro grinder which, if anything, is as good or better than the one on my Club Combo. The drip tray is kind of a pain and gets a little messy, but it's not really a problem. Overall, I love this machine and highly recommend it.

Buying Experience

Bought on Ebay through Final Call Auction for about $150. Good seller.
