Robert Combs (quality: 6.8)
Bottom Line: If great price, real customer support, spare parts, and most of all, superior performance is important to you, than I highly recommend this unit. Mark, thanks for getting me off the fence with this unit.
RA Schuppe (quality: 6.8)

Leonard Wells (quality: 6.8)
Bottom Line: It's "Beauty is onlySkin Deep". as in Handsome machine, ugly grinds.
Stuart Niemtzow (quality: 6.7)

John Boddie (quality: 6.6)
