When the Linea Mini first came out, Chris Tacy, one of our veteran former Team HB members did an in-depth review. Among other things he trained baristas at Stumptown Coffee Roasters. Later in that review, Dan Kehn, our site owner, takes a test drive and posts a video. For an impulse buyer wanting to get into making espresso they can tune, it's one of the best choices, where the idea is for the machine to be easy to adjust as you dial in shots by taste. It is not a showpiece listed by the original poster. I believe it's worth a read to help situate the kind of choice it is.

We also have a review of the Speedster by Dan Kehn.

Slayer is the best sized for home out of the three and looks great too! I'd go the lever route but that's bias :twisted:
