Summary: When it works, it did just fine. I usually brew one or sometimes two expresso cycles daily. I've had two machines, the first one started leaking all over the bottom. Also it would mysteriously turn on in the middle of the night, cycle through, and leave with a technical error display.
Summary: I purchased an earlier model of this expresso machine. It did not steam the milk, so had to send it for repair less than one month from purchase. It was returned with instructions to run some mineral water through it. It still did not work.
Summary: I bought a 7230 (indistinguishable from this one) 4 years ago after about 10 years of buying Saeco automatics and having them fail in the first year or two with no nearby service center I could find at the time.
Summary: For a really expensive espresso machine, this item did not give me the coffee pleasure i had hoped for. I returned the machine three times, every time for a different error code and reason, and the last time it was returned to me completely filthy with water still leaking.
Summary: Bought this unit a a year and a half ago and used it sparingly (5-6 cups a week typically), however after about 6 months the machine sprung a tiny leak, unnoticeable at first, at least until the amount of coffee in the cup began to drop after each use, until I spotted a water patch on the counter.
Summary: I am an avid coffee drinker and was very happy to receive this machine for Christmas almost two years ago. For the first year things went well and I didn't have any problems from my machine, but then right at the one year mark things started going wrong.
Summary: I have seen some You Tube videos out about this machine leaking, however I have two of these (one in both my summer & winter homes) and I absolutely LOVE IT! The coffee/expresso/latte/cappuccinos are excellent... And I've tried them all.
