I sold mine locally for $175-200, and found it to be a very cute display piece that also was capable of good shots and steam. A also know another person in town that has used one for a long time as a travel machine. I wish I filmed some shots with mine, but all I have is this first latte art attempt: click here

It uses a regular PF and normal steam wand. Its no prosumer machine by any means but with a good grind I have seen a good cup come out of it. Personally I haven't used it since I picked it up a long time ago but I did taste the coffee from the machine prior to purchasing it. I bought it for my personal collection as its a unique piece but I am now eyeing other equipment that takes precedence.
BTW that is a beautiful latte. The machine is now SOLD to a fellow CG
