Bottom Line: No more mess in the kitchen!  Descent coffee after some experimentation with the adjustments.
Positive Product Points

Least expensive superautomatic machine on the market.  Easy to use once you figure out what settings to use.  Good frothing capability.  Good product support via Saeco 800 number.

Negative Product Points

Somewhat dissapointed with the brittle plastic.  Requires a good amount of counter space.  Coffee dispenser knob is somewhat tricky to use.

Detailed Commentary

Best price at selectappliance.com, paid $415.  I prefered a grinding setting of 8 and about 1.25 onces of coffee for lattes and caps. Forget about the "golden rule of 20 - 25 sec brewing cycle", it does not work with this machine.  When adjusting the coffee dispenser knob, make sure you remove any slack; e.g., turn the knob clockwise well pass the desire mark, then turn it back slowly to the desire mark.  Consider spending an additional $50 for the Vienna DeLuxe, it has some additional features such as faster steaming and adjustable coffee dosage.
