You talked me into it: I've ordered a Gaggia Naviglio Silver, mostly because the reviews are good, the price is good, the coffee is (apparently) good, and it's one of the few machines where the water tank and waste bucket are accessible from the front of the machine instead of the back!
Given where I want to put it, that's a good idea.

One of the reasons I didn't use my older Espresso machine (a Kenwood Cafe Retro) too much was that the water tank needed the machine pulled away from the wall about 50cm to fill it (or even check it). Plus the steam wand was poor and hard to clean.
