I only got mine last week, but it is a very very good pick for the price. You will need a proper tamper, the one that comes with it is horrible. Have a look at Di Bartoli, they seem to have the best range of "off-the-shelf" 57mm ones, thats where I wound up getting mine. NB you need a 57mm one, not 58.
I would highly recommend getting a pl042, I was lusting after a silvia and rocky but this comes in $500 cheaper, and really can put out a fantastic brew.
