Positive Product Points

This machine has an easy to use push button delivery system and is a reasonable size for counter top use where it is always in view.  Water filling and bean filling is easy.  The warning light system tells you when it is out of beans, low on water, or needs to have used pucks removed.  Heats up fast.

Negative Product Points

Somewhat flimsy design but ok for the price.  Coffee comes out not as hot as I would like and bean amount and grind adjustments don't seem to make much difference no matter what coffee you use.

Detailed Commentary

I've used this machine for just over a year.  It was an OK machine in that it didn't deliver the Crema that my other super automatic did.  Odd too, since the insides of this machine are the same as on my 600 model.  The only difference is that this model has more features compared with the old Vienna model.  However, this model broke and my old one is still working fine after 6 years and heavy use.  What broke?  The dial that sets the amount of water to go through the coffee.  It has a very thin plastic stem that is connected to another flimsy electronic part - the stem broke for no reason - I was not forcing it or treating it harshly.  I would rather pay another couple of hundred bucks and get a better made machine.  If you can find it for about $250 it is a great price for a super automatic.

Buying Experience

costco - fine, what can I say.
