The Preciso is more expensive (is there any way of finding one of these on a discount without buying a refurb?), and I've seen a lot of posts saying the Virtuoso isn't good enough.  On the other hand, the Preciso got an absolutely glowing review here.  The I-Mini seems to have a pretty good reputation, but I have no idea how it compares to the Preciso.  And there's the price, which I guess I'd obviously prefer to be lower, but they're fairly similar.  Theoretically, either of these would be used with a Gaggia Classic (thinking of getting one from Aabree).

Help?

I'm going to be selling a brand new Ascaso I-Steel I-2 shortly for a good price.  I just haven't put it up for sale here yet.  They're both really good capable ginders - with the Ascaso being stepless, and the Preciso being nearly so at 440.  If you're interested, you can send me an email - its in my profile.
