Positive Product Points

Fairly simple, different sized portafilters for single or double shots

Negative Product Points

Cheaply constructed, poor steam wand, very low-quality espresso

Detailed Commentary

Espresso is bland tasting. If your grind on your beans is too fine, the pressure isn't even enough to pull the shot, the machine will just sit there and make noise.
The portafilters are hard to use, the baskets come out when you try to take the grounds out, it has ended up in the trash many times.
The steam wand heats the milk fairly quickly, but leaves the milk flat(not creamy or velvety, like it should) and just piles foam on top of the milk. It is also hard to find a container that fits under the steam wand, as the wand is very close to the machine and cannot be angled.  
The machine itself is constructed entirely of plastic, and seems cheap and flimsy. The "tamper" that is connected on the underneath side of the machine is difficult to use, and cannot be used without holding down the top of the machine.

Buying Experience

The store was out of the machine, and kept promising it would be in, though it took about 3 weeks in the end.
