Bottom Line: This machine earns its name. Very good piece for its price, with a few tips and tricks. Get it used if you can, and replace the portafilter.

Bottom Line: This low-maintainence machine works great out-of-the box and has been serving barrista-made shots daily for 10 years and brewing.
Harvey Dent 01.01.2010 Rating: 9.2
Bottom Line: easy to use + consistancy in taste + good quality esspresso - whatelse should one expect from an esspresso machine? machine looks neat&tiny but is very heavy, reliable and cosistant.

Bottom Line: Nice starter machine; don't pay too much for it.
Kevin Bailey (quality: 8.0) 09.26.2009 Rating: 6.4
Bottom Line: This is definitely a BEGINNER machine. A good grinder will do leaps and bounds for the overall product this puts out (as it does any machine). Treat yourself to a Silvia instead.
