I have had the DeLonghi 3500 now for about 4 months, and overall I am happy with the performance and consistency. I bought it primarily because I either do not have the time to stand in line at Starbucks or the inclination to pay $3-$4 for a cup served in styrofoam. Convenience is #1 factor, and I got it. It is easy to use, and easy to clean and maintain. The DVD was very helpful and the functionality of the programs is unbelievably easy for a sophisticated machine. 800# support was excellent when doing set-up. You actually do talk to a live human being after about one minute!!Couple of drawbacks. It is pricey and the temperature setting is a bit of a disappointment, but overall, I look forward to coming home and cranking it and have my coffee in less than 2 minutes. Highly recommended for those who do not like to fuss with extensive cleaning and maintenance. The display tells you what you need to do and when. Enjoy!
