Bottom Line: For the on the go person this is a care free machine, (with more time on your hands get a Silvia.)
Positive Product Points

For the working person with little time, and a need for great espresso
with no cleanup and only a 5 min wait for warm up, this is the ticket.
Roasting your own beans will have even better results.

Negative Product Points

The main electrical board inside the housing tends to go bad in some cases, like mine after about a year.
1st line did save the board with a repair, this saved me 250.00 for a new board, not to mention shipping and labor to fix it.

Detailed Commentary

The Gaggia Synchrony is great looking in the kitchen, unless you have
limited counter space.
The instruction booklet is sometimes hard to understand, and must be read more than once to interpret.
Cleaning is intimidateing at first, but gets easier with time.
You will love this machine when you get to know it by programming
to your coffee or espresso taste, it just takes a little time.
If in time your machine starts acting up and not warming up as soon
as it used to, or the machine jumps into self testing too often, that is an
indication your main electrical board is going bad. at 1st-Line they
have used boards for a lot less than a new one (if in stock)......soooo get it fixed if you love the Synchrony like I do.

Buying Experience

1st-Line is a great company for tec support and buying, at least in my case.
This company will work with you by phone or email.
