    Nice price but this one with some extras and a 2 year warrantee is maybe better value and they are sponsors too :) http://www.coffee-a-roma.com.au/shop...ackage-60.html

    I did see that one, but with the base included it comes up to 1400 or so. I do like to buy from sponsors if I can but a couple of hundred dollars is money I need to save where I can :-[ .

    I reckon its much more important to know if your machine is going to be bench tested and what service facilities your vendor has? *:-?

    A couple of interstate trips for warranty support will kill the difference very quickly.

    What about training? Are they going to assist you to get the best from your machine or will you be happy with a couple of boxes and a receipt.

    When dodgy internet suppliers sell boxes at wholesale or less, often without GST, something has to give. Its service and support that goes and its why we no longer service, support or train people on their Silvias- unless they were our clients ::)

    The training they dont provide but I have laready attended a coffee course (not on silvia but a commercial maching). Im guessing the bench testing doesnt take place and that is a risk. It is a business offer though and they say its from Sydney. I havent taken the plunge yet. I think hard about my purchases before I buy. I will ask them re warrenty support.
    Thanks for the advice
