I just saw that Profitec Drive was released. Anyone have experience with this? Looks very nice and a fast heat up time too of 12-13 mins. I was leaning towards the Micra but I dont like its looks, the plastic filter, short steam wand and the low cup clearance, and the use of an app.

Nice machine. I assume that these improvements will be forthcoming very shortly on their flagship ECM Synchronika; plus maybe some additional upgrades.

Seems to be a replacement for the PRO700. New PID and display along with flow control being included rather than optional.

Nothing is going to make an e61 ready in 15 minutes. Too much mass.

They are claiming 13-15 minutes. The definition of "ready to pull a shot" isnt defined by the manufacturer however.

The ability to schedule the machine to turn on via internal timer is a nice upgrade. Looks like a solid replacement for the PP 700.

Yeah it looks pretty nice with some very good specs. Wish I could see one in person. Meets all my criteria.

Yes. On AND off, it appears. Was wondering why it took so long for that upgrade to happen.

The on and off is a button and not a switch. With a physical switch, you can use smart plug instead. Just preference. I think the drive's auto preinfusion looks pretty good. But you can already do that manually.
