Sounds like people either love them or hate them. I love them.

Summary: Pros: -- So quiet you don't hear it even if you're in the same room. Having a Bosch is like getting another room in your house. -- Cleaning is amazing if you use the right detergent for your water and your water isn't too hard. Finish Tabs work extremely well for us. -- Efficiency is phenomenal. Uses extremely little water and electricity so over the life of the dishwasher it will save you a few bucks. Cons: -- You have to use good quality detergent.
Summary: Had the dishwasher for 6 weeks and both my wife and I hate it. One star for quiet. Racks are very inconvenient, holds only about half to two thirds of my 17 year old Whirlpool. Some dishes come out wet. Flatware tray drips water when you take it out. Gives off foul odor that the service person told me is normal but goes away when you turn it on. Difficult to program.
Summary: other reviews were critical of drying, but we are not having problems. This seems to be a good affordable and quiet diswasher. I did not give it 5 stars because we have not had it long enough to know about reliability.
Summary: We bought this dishwasher about 5 years ago from Lowes. Our Kenmore was still working great, but the basket had rusted through and there were no replacement parts available. We decided on the Bosch. We thought we were upgrading... Pros: It's quieter than our last dishwasher. It looks nice. Cons: The buzzer will drive you NUTS! We finally just turned the stinking thing off. The dishes come out soaking wet. Hot, but definitely wet.
Summary: I've had this thing for six months. Pretty much disliked it a month later. Now, I hate it. Researched but missed the part about air dry. My bad, but this is really stupid and it doesn't work if you don't prop the door open. Yes,I've tried different drying aids. No change. Now it is not getting dishes clean. Yes,I've tried different dish detergents . No change. The dish baskets are very inconvenient .
Summary: We just bought this dishwasher. I had difficulty when accessing the "options mode". When you are in an options mode, and wish you choose an option, you are supposed to press the < button and then "blinking LED lights" (as indicated in the instructions manual) will be visible, and you keep pressing the < button until you have the correct # of blinking LED lights for your choice. Well, wrong! We tried and tried, and could not get the LED lights to "blink".
Summary: Easy to install and very quiet. I like the range of wash selections. The only thing that I find a bit frustrating is the assumption I will be using a rinse aid and the light that indicates I didn't add it.
Summary: I never write reviews but I want to save people our agrivation. The only reason it gets one star is because it is quiet. We bought this dishwasher a year and a half ago and I am now washing dishes by hand. We bought this dishwasher because of the brand and stainless steel tub. Hated it the first month due to the small top for glasses. Now I hate it because it does not clean our dishes.
Summary: PROS: Attractive exterior, quiet operation, gets dishes clean and very dry. CONS: Holds fewer dishes than my old Kenmore Elite. No special holder for large utensils or odd-shaped items like thermal cup tops. No exterior light to indicate the drying cycle is done (there's an annoying series of beeps which can be disabled). An on-off switch and start switch both have to be pushed to begin a cycle, an unnecessary hassle.
Summary: I felt compeled to write a review after reading many of the reviews prior to buying this dishwasher. I was on the fence, but this model had the features I was looking for and thought I would try it. I had a almost new GE Profile that I should have loved. It was AWEFUL!!!! The dishes did not come out clean and I tried every product out there switching between gel and powder with no luck.
