It is worthy having it for the entry level espresso machine
Positive Product Points
It is very good for the price range little less than $600. You can get 10+% discount from Bed Bath and Beyond coupons. The grinder has wide range of settings which allows entry level espresso lover can experiment and enjoy.
Negative Product Points
The built-in grinder is not bad, but you need to change the setting for single non-pressurized portafilter and double non-pressurize one. I thought it should be consistent as long as I'm using non-pressurized ones.
Steam wand is not anti burn so the frothing milk can be stuck and not easy to removed.
The machine is very good if you think about cost versus value for entry level. The built-in grinder is also good for beginners who don't want to spend another $150+ on grinder only. If you compare the built-in grinder with Breville smart grinder ($200) the functionality (grind / coarse setting) is very similar. The only difference you can tell is the built-in grinder is manual.
The espresso taste good but you have to find the right grind setting and the setting may need to changed as your coffee becomes old. I usually buy a pack of coffee beans and finish in 2.5 weeks. However, I need to change the grind setting in the second week to be finer.
Since it is very good for the cost you pay, try to buy it from the store with discounts
