For the price its the best (new) machine you can buy. The downside is the heat. The groupheads on this machine run hot! Purge before you pull!
Positive Product Points
It's cheap and it works
Negative Product Points
It runs HOT!
I disagree with the fact that I have to write a detailed commentary. I feel that breif, to the point reviews are all that is really nessacary. The costs and benifits of any machine can be descibed in under five hundred characters. As someone with 7 years of my life dedicaded to espresso equipment I can tell you that a five hundred word commentary is just trying to sell you something and it probably isn't actually a consumer review. So if you are a potential buyer don't read the detailed commentary.
