Have had it for about 3 months- Makes a very good espresso.
Because it does not swing out enough (or slightly up) it's not convenient to slide the milk container underneath for steaming.
The handle is spring loaded, for whatever reason, so you can't get a solid grip on turning the well to screw it on.

Purchased this after doing a lot of research and not knowing how much I was going to use an espresso machine. Best web site for research was Seattle Coffee gear. Great videos. This one was rated as good as the Via Venezia at making espresso and has the better frothing wand.. Could not justify Via Venezia price on something I was not sure I would use a lot. So I went for this one. Frankly very glad when I saw that Seattle Coffee Gear was actually the Amazon supplier, as their web site was such a good source of info, and would have bought direct from them, but I got Amazon Gift cards.

Another review points out some factual shortcomings but, considering price point, and that fact that it makes a great cup of espresso and the frothing is also excellent (yes, you do have to flush out a tad of water before frothing), this is a steal. Using this machine more than I expected and, if this use keeps up, I will give this one to my kid and go for a Via Venezia. But for now, this gives me what i want at a good price. And if you are comparing models, the Seattle Coffee Gear site is a good one. I have no affiliation with them.

After my cheaper espresso machine broke down, I decided to upgrade to a better one. I did my research and liked the reviews for the Saeco, and that it has the same internal parts as the more expensive units. So, I've been using it for a few days now (I will update the review if need be).

The machine looks good and it was well packaged. The instructions are OK, but not intuitive plus they're translated from another language. If you've used one of these before, it's the same procedures, so don't fret.

First, the on/off switch hides in the back of the unit, which is a totally inconvenient place. It took me a minute to find it, because I put the unit against my kitchen wall on the counter and I was looking at it to find out how it turns on after I plugged it in! Now, I have to move the unit forward and back every time I have to flip the switch. This could be a deal breaker if combined with the other flaws.

Is this machine supposed to stay on for hours? I don't think so, because the machine preps the water to high temp & builds steam ready for use. Do you want to have a machine ready all the time? What would this do to the parts inside if it's all the time? I don't know. Placing the switch to the back of the unit might make someone think that "flip it and forget about it"....

Second, I found that it's best to wait a bit more after the green light comes on before you switch to making your coffee. The temp/pressure are better thus. Also, before you steam your milk, run it for a few seconds as the first stuff that comes out is water only and this will definitely dilute your milk. So, collect this water in something and throw it out.

This machine is very well built, is really inexpensive and the coffee is very good.
I like it very much and never had a problem with it after 1 year.

The only design flaw I see is that it's hard to use the steamer, you need to tilt your mug a lot to take it in and out. You have to elevate the machine with something like a small box or a tall chopping block.
