Bottom Line: i can't imagine ever wanting to replace it...
Positive Product Points

beautiful crema, brews and steams very fast, amazing coffee each time. no doubt, the best consumer machine i've worked with.

Negative Product Points

very small and not easy enough to access water tank.

Detailed Commentary

i'm a happier man thanks to that machine. i owned the la-pavoni  professional (a lever machine) and after it died (it was a used and badly maintained machine) i decided me and my girlfriend need to upgrade our morning and evening coffee.
i checked and tested many machines in the "up to a 1000$" standard. the oscar and the silvia were the best (i had to buy from a shop that didn't have quickmills, otherwise, it would have also been in the top three if not the first).
although i really liked the silvia, i fell in love with the oscar. elegantly designed (i have the red version), sturdy built, fast working, beautiful crema and powerful steamer.
i especially loved the feel of the machine - i felt almost like i'm working with a professional machine again.

Buying Experience

is anyone really interested in vendors in israel?
