Bottom Line: Great shots and great steam but the noise will wake your neighbors.
Positive Product Points

Great shots
Looks good
Commercial steam
E61
heat xchanger
easy to fill/clean
2 portafilters
ABS body is just fine and you won't miss the glare of SS
No hot water spout is not a bad idea on a non plumbed in machine as you will quickly deplete the tank dispensing hot water. Steam does quite well to heat liquids.

Negative Product Points

Noisy
Portafilter hardly rotates into group and I am worried the pressure may pop it off violently one day.
Replaced pressure stat after a few months (known issue)

Detailed Commentary

If NS can make it quieter (perhaps a rotary pump)  I would buy it again in a heartbeat
