Summary: you can't beat a Nespresso and the price on Amazon was absolutely right. I already had a Pixie and I bought this one for my mother - she is elderly and I spend many evenings with her sharing dinner. Now I can enjoy my coffer and she also looks forward to hers.
Summary: Leaked since the first time I plugged it in. Called Nespresso who said they would send a UPS truck to pick it up within the week (still waiting - 4 weeks later!!) and now have missed the deadline to send it back to Amazon. Also, found out since that Pixie machines make a huge amount of noise - other Nespresso machines DO NOT make that much noise! Great price but definitely not worth the problems. Pay more and get a good machine.
