I bought this one on the advice of a Harvey Norman salesman -he upgraded me as he said this would be much better and last longer. Worked Brilliantly without Fault for 4 years. Being used At least 2 times per day.
The machine is 4 years old - it just decided to stop spinning. The repair company came out ($80+GST) said it could be one of 2 things - the motor or the electronics that control the motor. He said lets start by trying the electronics ($770) and if that doesnt work we will have to replace the motor. His advice was to sell it as parts and buy a Bosch. Pretty disappointing that it only lasted 4 year and now we are looking to buy a new machine.
No, this product has too many drawbacks.
