Bottom Line: A superior product at the price point split between cheapies and industrial machines.
Positive Product Points

Solid heavy construction.  Stainless steel industrial-look finish.  Restaurant grade fittings.

Negative Product Points

Takes a bit of time to warm up, except through the use of "cheats".  Chintzy set-up for water retrieval (hose sticking into the reservoir).  Requires some tuning (of the operator) to make it work.

Detailed Commentary

This unit was a replacement for a Krups Novo, although it is several steps up the evolutionary chain from the Krups.  Paid about $400 for it, including shipping.  No regrets - its a superior machine.
