Rated 5 out of 5 by Lias A great entry level espresso machine
I just bought it 4 days ago after reading a few reviews on the net. I am based in KL and bought from Harvey Norman,
The machine comes with 2 years international warranty. The reason why I bought it is because it does the same coffee that some of its competitors make at a higher price. In addition, Philps and Saeco are two brands that my parents were using and that I put my trust in.
The coffee I make is the same that I get from a coffee shop at the exception that I get to use the coffee I like and it costs me a fraction of what I spend outside.
The machine has a nice look and has a smart water container that is removable and is hidden in the body of the machine.
The machine gets ready very fast to get your coffee done.
I have not used it to boil milk just yet but that would be my next step.
Adjusting the amount of water for the coffee does not disturb me as you will be able to know the amount of water after 1 or 2 cups of coffee.
I can use coffee pods too, I was confused about the piece of rubber that came with the filter but I got it figured out after reading the user manual.
For the price and what it can do, I would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by britandjack Very user unfriendly!
This looked a great coffee machine at a great price. Sadly it is so user unfriendly I am considering binning it and going back to my tassimo!
Where can I start. I have had to put it on a wooden block so that a jug/cup can be placed under the frother - even then the chances are I will spill the milk when trying to extract it.
The espresso part isn't automatic so you have no idea when to stop it.
The handle of the espresso part is so hard to pull round in the right position, it would never be suitable for anyone at less than full strength. I can run half marathons but I struggle with that!
The drip tray is wobbly and the silver part just rattles around.
The lid on top doesn't securely fit so it basically just laid on top.
If you can get over all of the above (i.e. spilling your milk and having the strength of 10 men to put the coffee handle in) it makes a nice cup of coffee.
