Bottom Line: this machine is totally solid, quiet, and  reliable. It is one of the best things I ever bought. If you love coffee, find the money for this and you will be happy you did.
Positive Product Points

Great looking polished stainless unit
Very easy to use.
QUIET rotary pump

Negative Product Points

Isn't as pretty as the Millenium
Must remember to push the group lever all the way down, or water continues to come out of the group head.

Detailed Commentary

I had an Isomac Millenium for about 4 years. It was excellent. Some troubleshooting and repairs were required. Considering that I used it twice a day for four years, I remained a happy owner. It was time to upgrade. I wanted a quieter rotary pump model. Since I was used to the E61 type machine I didn't want to go crazy into a Laspaziale. Plus, that requires a special timer.
The Vetrano hits all the high notes. Each part seems to be a cut above the Millenium. Quiet rotary pump, cool touch steam arms, plumb in ready to go, and plumb out the drain easily accomplished.
I have no significant complaints. This should keep me satisfied and amped up for years.

If you are looking for an E61 type "semi-pro" home espresso machine, I would give this one a very serious look. There are a lot of similar looking units out there. Chris helped in the design features of this and you can tell.  It is very solid, and as I noted above, I don't think you can find the features of the Vetrano on a less expensive unit. Like other great equipment, it gives very reliable results when paired with an excellent grinder. It is worth every penny in my house. I use it once or twice a day, and on weekends I leave it on all day. I can pull a great shot for my pop in neighbors and everyone is happy. Probably leads to more pop in neighbors, but hey, it keeps the neighborhood connected.
You too can be the neighborhood Barista.

Buying Experience

Always excellent with the Chris Coffee team.

Three Month Followup

The coffee machine is still working flawlessly, but with the economic crises getting worse by the day, it's almost ridiculous to be worrying about a coffee machine.

One Year Followup

This is one of the best things I have ever purchased. No complaints.
