Comparison Overview

The illy X7.1 is much cheaper than the Platinum Vision, but that is because it does less. Instead of grinding and tamping the beans, it uses pre-made espresso pods. Both are easy to use, though, and swapping out the pods on the X7.1 is no great hassle to do. Where the X7.1 fails, though is on milk; we found that the Gaggia Platinum Vision did a better job of foaming milk and producing better quality lattes and cappuccinos.
