In that it's about a tenth of the price!
I bought this 4 years ago at £280 and it is absolutely brilliant. Use good quality beans like illy or lavazza and the espressos are lovely. Buy it, take care of it and you will not regret it.
i was waiting for price drop at Amazon nice & quick find. ordering tonight. hot hot hot
Good machine, more bulky than the latest models, but makes excellent coffee.

Exactly!
Had one of these for two years or so now - good bit of kit. Easy to look after, grinds well, had paid for itself many times over.
Do any owners have the correct dimensions of one of these? Online manual says: LxHxD: 280x364x400 mm but I it doesn't look that deep from the picture. I'd love one of these but a bit tight for worktop space.

Can't help you, but they are quite large. There is a smaller style but not at this price point.

Length being left to right and depth, front to back?
+1 would buy another one if I had the worktop space for it love mine.
Bought the newer version of this for £225 from Debenhams when they had a 10% offer on and a sale for £250. Fantastic machine, would highly recommend
love a good coffee machine. Had 2 Delonghi machines now but went for the dedica slimline one to save space. However its definitely nicer to have freshly ground beans and a steal at this price.
I have one of these, it's a great machine, use it every day
My top tip with these machines is that the coffee start to taste weaker after a while due to the burr grinder wearing in.
You have to adjust the grinder for a finer grind and this can only be done with the grinder running - I think I picked mine up for around £200 from Amazon.

Bulky, noisy (can't use while others in the house are still asleep), requires frequent cleaning/emptying/filling and generally more maintenance and attention than all other devices in my house together. Cups aren't kept hot on 'hot plate' above which is merely a style feature. Coffee never comes out strong enough nor hot enough. Buyer beware. (IMHO)
Bought this last week at Amazon for £40 more. Is it worth asking for a refund of the difference - will I have any luck doing that?

If you'd asked Amazon that question, instead of here, you'd probably have had the refund by now!
Had one of these - great machines!

Now got an upgraded model and tbh - there is a difference as you go up the range, but for this price. . can't go too far wrong.

I purchased the DeLonghi ECAM 22.366.B Magnifica S from Rakuten. They had the offer on points so got £80 worth of points + discount code at the time + Quidco meant it was down to £220 after everything (then sold my old one for £50

But comments above about noise are true - it is loud when grinding and water pumping. But as for strength - totally disagree, with decent beans + settings to get your "flavour" you can get what you want from it.

​with all due respect you are not using the machine properly. some many variables, quality of beans, heat of water, hardness of water, how fine the grind is set, all adjustable. the machine is not the issue though, unless it's broken

I find that you need to grind as fine as the machine will still work, and this changes with the bean type. As for heat it is adjustable (on mine) but any way you need to warm the cups and if using milk it needs to be warmed. Would not be without mine.

I once though a bean to cup was ideal for me and ordered this model from Amazon. On first use the infuser head came down jammed and broke. Was gutted.

Never ordered another and bought a manual machine and decent grinder.
I have this model at work, for the price its a great machine and really convenient, I'd definitely recommend it or any machine where you use fresh beans over pre ground (bean to cup or separate grinder). pop the beans in press one button and away you go. I've noticed it does get coffee grinds all over internally but just needs a quick clean up once a week. it is loud but so is every coffee machine I've used, especially with a grinder. As stated above, it doesn't make mega hot coffee but again, most coffee machines are similar the reasons for this are, a) it can't be too hot or it scolds the coffee and b) espresso machines only dispense a small amount of coffee. if this goes into a cold cup then your coffee will be cold, if you put cold milk out the fridge into your coffee, your coffee will be cold. either run your cup under the hot tap for a bit or zap the cup in the microwave or top up with boiling water let to cool for a minute while you prepare coffee or use the milk frother wand to heat the milk up(don't bother using the cup warmer on the machine, you're better off sitting on the cup and farting). it DOES make very strong coffee, or for that matter, weak if you choose, there's plenty of settings to change that (grind size, amount of water, amount of beans used) but its also very easy to use. One recommendation I advise, don't crank the water setting to the top, put it half way max. reason for this is the more water you put through the beans the poorer the quality of the coffee will be and it doesn't make it any stronger by draining ever last bit. if you like a bigger cup of coffee, either do another shot or top up with hot not boiling water.
my own first coffee machine was the delonghi icona (I think) it was amazing and I picked it up for £70 when half price. after a bit of practice it made great coffee from a dirt cheap machine but it was just a pain in the as s took ages to prepare then clean up. I'm too lazy so I only used it once a day. had that for maybe a year to 18 months then it packed in. eventually I saw it half price again and bought another. a year later that packed in. gutted.
next machine was another delonghi, honestly don't know which but it was like the ecam 25.462, it was a bean to cup which included an auto milk frother. AMAZIIIING! If you're lazy like me and sacrifice a slight dip in quality over convenience you have to get one. fill the milk carafe, one button, good lattes. so easy, really quick, no cleaning, milk goes back in fridge still in the machines carafe. I've had good coffees and great coffees out of it, hit n miss. I do miss the icona though.
For anyone looking for a nice blend of beans for their new machine, I recommend Rave Signature blend.
If buying avoid amazon as not always fresh.
I usually buy from their site and its roasted and dispatched same day, opt for free delivery and it's rested and ready when you get then.
I got this about 3 years ago, been really pleased with it, use it every day rather than calling in at a local coffee shop, its actually saved me a fortune! I think I paid around £250 ish, which was a good discount at the time. I'd buy another one for sure.
Heat.
Brilliant machine, use it every day. Easy to use, easy to clean and easy to fill etc.
I had a jura impressa z5 which I paid almost £2k for and it only lasted 5 yrs of light domestic use. Absolutely terrible reliability. I then bought this for £250 thinking if it lasted a year I'd be happy. Three years later of daily use and it's none the worse for wear. Lavazza beans from Costco and its consistently excellent. Buy one!

I've bought loads of stuff from there but never thought to try their beans.
Do you know if they are freshly roasted?
Will need to give them a try

U can get a z3 for £1500 nowadays. Not so good for the snow, though
Is the money worth a jump from a Tassimo? And what is it size was in comparison to a Tassimo (Joy)?

Thanks op!
