What warrenty does this refurbished unit come with?
Mark at WLL answered my email on this question, thank you Mark.
He confirmed that this refurbished unit comes with a 6 month warranty. A new unit has a 1 year warranty and they give you a 1 year extension for free (value $49.99) giving you 2 years (24 months) of warranty.
With the discounts that WLL runs every month on new units and the fact you get 24 months warranty for new over a 6 month for refurbished you are not saving all that much on a refurbished unit. I wish WLL would give a full 12 month warranty of refurbished units, it would make the buying decision easier.
Had a superauomatic Capresso and I really loved the coffee but the machine always broke downand it was expensive to fix. I would like the creamy coffee the Capresso produced but in a reliable machine. Also a good latte machine, the Capresso set me back $1500 and I don't want to do that again so I put my budget at $400. I would do a refurbished. Any ideas?
I am looking at this as well, WLL only gives a 6 month warranty on Refurb units. A new unit comes with a 12 month warranty and WLL includes for free a warranty extension of another year, valued at $49.99. When you look at the warranty 24 months new and 6 months refurb the cost savings on a refurb unit doesnt seem as attractive, to me anyway. And knowing others with esspresson machines, and your own experiance with another brand a 24 month warranty might be worth it.
I would take a look at the Gaggia Synchrony Logic Rapid Steam. It is close to your price range. With simple operation and produces a nice product. The thing I have found over the years with super autos. The more you spend, doesn't mean you are getting a better coffee product. You are paying for more gizmos.
