I've had this machine since September 2012 and it's perfect! It doesn't look cheap, never leaks, works first time, every time and I have hot, delicious coffee in my hands within a minute of pulling a coffee mug out of the cupboard. Fantastic!

Having problems with Nespresso U since day 1 as it simply stops the extraction with the lights blinking like crazy. Nespresso club says its probably my electric socket so I went out of my way and spent 80 US bucks to replace it by a professional with a brand new one rated at 20Amps, still this is what happens. Most of the times it works, but every now and then it hangs. Coffee is LUKEWARM! Nespresso CLUB didn't answer my first email.. looks like I had to stick my NESPRESO CLUB number on the title, since I didn't, no email for me.. they say I CAN'T REPLACE it by another model, like the PIXIE one, so I'M STUCK WITH THIS PILE Of $#@$#@!!!!! THANKS NESPRESSO CLUB!!!! NOW I FEEL LIKE A HOMELESS GUY INSTEAD OF A MOVIE STAR!!! GOOD JOB!!! PROOF>>>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FoXwJ8lp998

Pros
when they work the coffee's good
Cons
on third machine in less than a month - leaks all over bench, burning smell. rubbish
• • •

In the periods of grace where this machine actually worked I really liked the coffee. The first machine lasted 1.5 weeks. Started leaking on bench, 'sizzle' sounds when next turned on and internal machine started to heat up, not sure of what I was hearing so tried to make a coffee - the machine stopped the pour before it was finished, lights started blinking, then it shorted - filling house with acrid burning plastic smoke, and actually melted the machine from the inside out and the top buckled. Machine 2 - lasted 5 days before it would jam on every 3rd or so capsule, puncturing it but not using it, had to turn machine on and off for it to spit out the capsule. Put up with that for a few days then took it back. Machine 3 - it's Sunday now, and I got this replacement machine last Thursday, used for the first time on Friday. Started leaking yesterday. Started sizzling today. Am taking it back too.

Very disappointed obviously. Someone I know has one of these machines and it works fine. I make 3 or 4 coffees a day so it's not over use. A bad batch?? Who knows. They're from the same store in the same colour so I don't know whether it's worth requesting they get new stock in to rule out the batch theory. But I have a heap of capsules I bought so It's either try new machine or upgrade to different model - which is much more expensive than I wanted to pay for a coffee machine.

Buyers beware!

Cant pour more coffee

Nespresso just does not want to let me in peace. This machine is just wonderful, and I had to get myself one, even if it would be my fifth machine. My wife LOVES the automatic capsule dispenser, since she forgets capsules a lot. I liked the beige color, it does NOT look cheap, although made in plastic. Au contraire, it looks sleek and sturdy in beige. I loved this machine!!!!

buttons too sensitive, broke down, crema lesser than citiz
• • •

Got one extra for my office, i was expecting something smaller.

Anyway they introduced a new electronic touch activation which i got the buttons wrong everytime. You have to really look at what you are pressing.

After a week, the machine went haywire and the machine activates by itself without pressing.

Crema is less as dense as what i recieved from my Citiz machine.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
