Subject: Lelit PL041 versus Ascaso  Steel Uno Special Edition (or Acaso Dream UP)
 

Both can be purchased on-sale or refurbished for about the same price.  Is the Ascaso a better machine for the money?  I've seen some reports of reliability issues with the Ascaso's but they do seem to sell more new.  Is either one a noticeably better machine or about the same?  I've also seen that the Dream UP doesn't leave a very dry puck at the end even with the 3-way solenoid on the new version.

Thanks,
Paul

ps. my 'great deal' on a used Isomac Venus fell through so I'm back to buying something new....
