Bottom Line: If you only want to make a decent cup of capiccino for guest once in a while, OK. If you are experienced, look elsewhere.
Positive Product Points

Great starter machine for the newbie. Is much better than a steam powered machine.

Negative Product Points

Because of design, you are "locked in" to beginner quality drinks. A lot of plastic which makes me wonder how long it will last.

Detailed Commentary

After 10 years of thinking I was drinking good capiccino, my wife bought me this DeLonghi as a birthday present. At first I thought the "crema enhancer" was a god send - made a good single shot. However, once you know what you are doing and want to change your methods, the DeLonghi design locks you into their method of making espresso. The same holds true for the "froth enhancer" - if you have never frothed milk before, this device with help you get a decent head of foam - NOT froth - on some milk. Again, once you gain some experience you are locked into the "DeLonghi way". I prefer the cheap Mr. Coffee machine with a slide on attachment that can be removed to experiment and do things your own way.

Buying Experience

As this item was given as a birthday gift I didn't have a say in it's purchase. However my wife says the salesman spent time with her asking about what I like to drink and how I buy and grind my beans, so I would have to say the experience was good.
