Bought mine used off a guy in boulder, CO, it was a very well taken care of machine with very minor cosmetic damage. The thing took me a while to get used to with the correct grind and such, guess the VST baskets are a little tricky though. Overall this is an AMAZING machine for your start into the world of espresso. It has a few drawbacks due to a single boiler with 800w, the steam takes a while to get to temperature. I'm aiming for a Quick Mill Andreja now due to the amazing reviews, and the HX part of the machine.
