Conclusion

We were impressed with the Platinum Vision; it produced a good quality shot of espresso, and is flexible enough to allow all but the most dedicated espresso junkie to tweak their brew to their specific tastes. The touch-screen control system is pretty easy to use, and provides an easy way to control the brewing process. The only downside was the slightly weak brew that it produced, and the occasional quirk in the on-screen interface. The espresso brewing process is a one-touch process, but the process of steaming and frothing milk is a little more hands-on, which some users might be uncomfortable with. These people should look at spending more to get a system with an automated milk frother (such as the Gaggia Accademia), but those are significantly more expensive. So, if simple espresso is the goal, the Platinum Vision is a good solution.
