Answer from a basic semi-auto owner:
"How do you know it looks "just like a lever machine"? Did you actually hook up a pressure sensor and a data logger onto one and measure it?"

You don't need a data logger. It graphs itself. It's a lonely life, but it does keep itself happy.

Interesting. Are you talking about here at HB?

Because when I go through the first five pages in the "repairs" thread, there is only one BDB topic, and that was from a guy who simply replaced a $0.10 o-ring and is back in business. (Which IME is very typical of the BDB). I won't call out any other brands but lets just say that there are several that make significantly more prominent appearances in the "repairs" thread, AND for significantly more severe problems than the BDB ever has. Most BDB things are never more than seriously easy DIY. That Breville offers a good warranty and offers to replace machines even over simple DIY'able repairs is between them and their customer.
