Arcadio M. Menendez, Amazon
11 August 2014
  • Summary: I bought the machine one year ago (2013) and the coffe was good. After one year the coffee started to taste burned and sour and it seems it was a problem of the software. After I sent the machine 3 times for service to Philips, the came back to me and told me that they can't do anything and neither will replace the machine or return my money. I am now under legal fights.

Very inconsistent coffee

Paul Locklin, Amazon
30 March 2014
  • Summary: This is my second Saeco. First one lasted eight years and I was very satisfied with it. It recently developed a leak which was difficult to repair so I decided to buy a new one. Big mistake. New machine is either a manufacturing defect or just very poorly designed.

Very disappointed

Hans Mulders, Amazon
20 February 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this item in Jan 2014 and was really looking forward to a great cup of espresso. We have had it for three weeks now and in the beginning it seemed to work fine. Right now it only makes a VERY weak espresso. We cannot get it to make a good cup. The beans somehow are not entering the grinding chute. You can hear the grinder, but it sounds like it is just running without any beans in it. We're very disappointed and will be sending it back.

Miss my Incanto

Amazon
20 November 2013
  • Summary: We have had a lot of problems with our unit. It has been in to service and we have it back but we are still not please. We upgraded to this from an Incanto and I miss our old machine! This looks nice and is easier to fill and empty but it is a lot more sensitive too. Upon receiving the unit back from service, we received a comical letter advising us not to use the machine on full strength. The person who serviced seems to have a personal attachment to coffee makers.

  • Excerpt: В общем машинка отстой и в первые 2 недели хотелось выкинуть в окно (благо не на свои куплена), но потом как то привык :( , но очень не советую! Заморочная она, и складывается впечатление о том что все эти недостатки были сделаны специально...
  • Pros: Симпатичная внешность За 4 месяца ни разу не сломалась
  • Cons: Недостатков просто море: 1. Не экономичная а. При нехватке кофе в отсеке для зерен - всё выплёвывает в помойку (не просит досыпать, а именно выплёвывает в контейнер с отработанным кофе) б. При использовании молотого кофе важна ювелирная точность дозировки, а то опять всё в помойку. в. При использовании молотого кофе важна последовательность выбора режима зерна/молотый, то есть если решили засыпать молотого кофе, то нужно в начале выбрать режим молотого кофе, потом сып...

critique

olivier, Amazon
28 August 2012
  • Summary: Cette cafetière est inacceptable compte tenu de son prix. Réservoir d'eau ridiculement petit, consommation d'eau énorme avec rinçages incessants, lenteur de mise en route, réceptacle d'eau usée toujours plein, filtre à eau à changer après 2 mois d'utilisation à 4 cafés par jour etc. Cependant le café est excellent.

Pour les très très petits débits

Praline, Amazon
27 August 2012
  • Summary: Machine achetée pour faire 20 cafés par jour environ. Elle consomme beaucoup d'eau (auto-nettoyage), elle est très lente, mais surtout elle ne chauffe pas assez. Le SAV m'indique surtout que mes tasses ne sont pas assez chaudes !!! Le café sort actuellement à 68°C, impossible d'avoir l'info chez Philips si ok...
