For a new at 400$, I think I'll also buy the Gaggia, but not sure if I can find one at that price...

And I do prefer to buy new than used. I'm addicted to warranty ;)

In defense of the 830. My 830 is going on 2 years now making 3 to 4 double shots a day, 7 days a week and it has been absolutely trouble free. My machine before the 830 was a Gaggia Carezza which in less then a year I had to send in for repair once  and then the pump went out and I got rid of it , plus I could never get a consistent shot with it. Maybe I just got lucky with my 830 and a friend bought a factory refurbished 830 3 months ago  on my recommendation  and he has no problems whatsoever.
Just my 2 cents worth.

Well, 10 months and two weeks later, it's nice to know . . . I guess.

 
A morning without coffee is sleep . . .
