Summary: I was looking to buy a Saeco Royal machine which I know to make superb coffee and is VERY reliable (having witnessed three machines all with history of over 5000 cups and no malfunction), however, I was persuaded to buy the Gaggia instead on the pretext that since it is a more up to date machine it would be better.
Summary: I just love this machine it's amazing it does everything I would recommend it to everyone The gagia platinum isn't looks beautiful its very quiet and I love the touch screen To sum it up ... It's the best.
Summary: I feel like I'm tempting fate by saying this but this machine scores full marks. Hot, consistence quality coffee everytime. Milk frother fabulous. We were considering buying a Jura (the so called Rolls Royce of machines) and although the quality seemed consistent, the temperature of the coffee was not hot, particularly when dispensing milky drinks.
Summary: I've owned this machine for just over two years with fairly heavy use (at least two cups per day) and still love it as... + the quality of the coffee is excellent + it allows you to have ground coffee with the convenience of instant + it offers flexibility in the type of coffee you can have, including strength + it's simple to use and maintain + it looks great in the kitchen There are also some minor gripes, such as: - you need to keep an eye on water level or it will...
Summary: I had a gaggia titanium for 4 to 5 years and did 5600 shots from it before It died. Thouight I would try a change so I ordered and returned 2 saeco machines for 2 different reasons, one was performance and other was damage. I purchased this through Amazon marketplace and what a brilliant machine, thank you Avides, top matks for customer service and value. Gaggia from now on, it is really excellent by comparison even if more expensive.
Summary: Not being a coffee making expert I was looking for a machine that would make a "Starbucks" or "Costa" style coffee at home with the minimum of fuss. As many of these machines cost around £1000 and my previous machine cost less than £100 I did a fair amount of research mostly on the net, reading reviews etc It seemed like a minefield as many models from reputable suppliers appear not to work well while others do I decided on the Gaggia Platinum Vision as it seened to tick...
Summary: Bought this a year ago. Broken down within a month, which was devastating. Made the mistake to send it back to Philips/Gaggia where it spent ages in the workshop, which was completely overloaded. Then got Amazon involved who hassle free offered an exchange. So asked for an exchange. Had the broken one sent back unrepaired from Philips & got a replacement which has been working absolutely fine since. Great machine, wonderful coffee.
Summary: I have had this machine for about three years now, however, it has broken down twice with the same problem since I have had it. I had it fixed last year and six months later it was blocked and unable to dispense coffee. My frustration lies at the regularity at which it breaks down despite my attempts to look after it carefully; water filter, de-scaler, cleaning tablets etc.
