Closing this thread, I ended buying the Lelit Victoria with an Eureka Mignon Specialita. Thanks all for the feedback. I've only made three shots and none was drinkable, but that part of the game...

I have a Victoria on a smart plug and it works every morning to make me a wonderful doppio. I do need to put the portafilter in the group head for 10 minutes to warm it up. I set the PID temp a bit cooler for the comfort roasts I like and I'm done. My wife likes a cappa once a month and I can accommodate her easily. Very easy to clean and no pre-flush routine. I never use the wonky pre-infusion so I don't know if that works or not. Shot timer on the display is very convenient. US based dealer gave me comfort that I can get service and support if needed.
