First, the X3 still can't really touch the Silvia, depending on the type of espresso-head you are. If you want convenience, then you shouldn't be buying a Silvia. The X3 is a possible machine for convenience seekers who want something that is beautiful.
Glenn, I don't think I'll be doing an X5 till at least next year,

Are you saying that when using the Solis Maestro the crema was pitiful - or that using the pods you had did not produce great crema? I need a good grinder and will get the Solis Maestro if it will do the trick. Please advise ASAP. Thanx
