Bottom Line: for all the bad press, i'm not unhappy. dont be affraid
Positive Product Points

pulls shots with great crema; cup warmer works well

Negative Product Points

none yet(still new) however since this machine is only semi-auto you have to watch it (i made that mistake only once). it must be turned off to stop the pump

Detailed Commentary

seems like it could be fussy for what little time i've worked with it. though it does come with a tool to unclog the pinhole in the pressurized basket so i'll assume krups realizes a there's potential to clog it.  I dont froth things, I only drink straight espresso so dont count on this review to help with that stuff. the cup warmer works, unlike other reviews have posted. it does vibrate and pulls shots quickly, which i'm sure I can control with a better grind and tamping harder. as for the quality of espresso produced, after pulling only one or two shots I could get decent flavor and rich color.

since this machine is only semi-auto you have to watch it (i made that mistake only once). it must be turned off to stop the pump!

seems to have great potential, i'll do the three month followup
