That picture has been up for several days.  It is not one of the new ones.

I guess Chris got really busy and didn't have time to post the new pictures yet.

Maybe tomorrow.

What? A daughter not answering her cell when a parent is calling? I've never heard of such a thing! :D

A new photo is up on the facebook site.  It looks very nice (almost identical to the photo on Quickmill's site).  I'll be calling Chris' team when I get some time to ask a few questions.  I'm really leaning towards this machine as long as there isn't anything that is overly objectionable to me.  I'd like to see some more photos (like everyone else), especially showing a close up of the LEDs when off (and on) and some interior shots.  I'm guessing the LEDs probably looks better in person than the original photos Chris put up, otherwise he wouldn't order the machine with them.

The biggest draw to the 2B for me is the rotary pump (and I need a tank). I just like the low noise of the rotary pump models. I would have to see the lights in person to make a decision on them. Right now, I am not sure I like them, but like Chris says, if you don't like them, don't turn them on. If the lights are more functional than decorative, they would be nice for me because the place I set my machine in the kitchen is a little dark unless you turn on every light in the kitchen. If they are functional to provide light on the work space, I certainly would rather them be one of the white LEDs.

After seeing the larger pic, any concerns I may have had over the LEDs are gone. Whether I ever turn them on or not, the machine with them off looks just fine. So it's more an "added feature/option" than anything else. Having them there, off, doesn't harm the machine aesthetically in my eyes. And turning them on...we'll have to see how that looks in person. But now this machine is firmly in the lead for me. It seems to have most of the advantages the Duetto 3 had over the Dream T (58mm E61, tank or plumbable, rotary) but for a few hundred cheaper. The only thing the Dream T has over this is the built-in timer, but I'm prepared to live without that for a while.

Chris-can you comment on how dry and powerful the steam is? How many holes are in the tip (and size)? I know people love the 4 hole 9mm tip on the Duetto 3.

Thanks, and I'll be in touch shortly to get on the list.

I dont think that "stock" pic they posted is the machine that has the LED lights on it..

Were there supposed to be more pictures about 12:30 today?

I don't how Facebook posts pictures so maybe there is a delay before they actually appear on the page.
