“I have had my Gaggia Syncrony Compact for about 4...”

Written on: 30/04/2010

I have had my Gaggia Syncrony Compact for about 4 years having bought it from the Gaggia web site as a factory refurb. I had an intial issue with the brew unit which Gagia sorted very quickly and since then it has worked perfectly. Not the most stylish of machines but neat and easy to use/clean. It gets daily use as I work from home where I am the only coffee drinker, so the relatively small bean hopper and water tank are not an issue for me but it wouldn't be suitable for a large household… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/01/2010 by dsh1 (1 review written)

We were reasonably happy with the Gaggia Synchony compact when it worked. After two years the flow deteriorated to the point it would not make a full cup of coffee. Normal cleaning & descaling didn't help & we were told it needed to be sent in for repair. We sent it in for repair to the Gaggia authorized repair center in Chicago. That experience has been unbelievable. The repair center did not return phone calls or emails for over a month after they received it. (Their web-site says typical… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/01/2010

Unreliable given the price. Very expensive to repair and just not worth it. Customer service is appalling and incredibly expensive - £100 just to look at it with further costs to be incurred.
Do not buy this (or any Gaggia as their service department is so bad)… Read Full Review

“Bought this machine expecting great things -...”

Written on: 07/11/2009

Bought this machine expecting great things - reasonable hope given the price tag. Very disappointed in the results. The coffee it produces is both weak (even at the max dose setting with fine grind selected) and luke warm. On the plus side the milk frother does work fairly well but the cleaning process afterwards does detract from the whole experience. All in all this is an outrageous price tag for a machine which performs so poorly. Spend your hard-earned cash on another machine!… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/11/2009

Had this for 5 years - had to replace steam valve after about 2 years. It now leaks somewhat but still works. I have just been devastated to discover that the coffee beans it grinds do not work through untill about 3 to 4 cups later. Unless you throw away the first 3 to 4 cups it produces each time you use it you dont get fresh ground coffee at all. The machine is a complete waste of time if you want 'fresh ground' coffee. I've been drinking day old grinds for years and wondering why it just… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/03/2009 by scmeakin (1 review written)

We got this machine at a really good price from a Gaggia outlet. It's a recon, but it had only made 101 cups when we got it. I got it November 08, and I use it all the time. If I go away I get withdrawal symptoms. I've definitely saved money on Starbucks since we got it. It's really really easy to use… Read Full Review

Don't buy for long-term it is unreliable and expensive to repair. Have had mine for 3 years and it had to be repaired once for $200 including shipping and at the second breakdown in 3.5 years another $200 including shipping. Decided to throw it in garbage rather than pay for second repair… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/08/2006 by romeo7 (1 review written)

The Gaggia 74877 Syncrony Compact Digital Coffee Maker is unreliable expensive to repair.

Mechanically it's not sound. This product is not suitable for long-term use. I have had mine for 3 years, and it had to be repaired once, which cost $200 including shipping, and at the second breakdown in 3.5 years, it cost another $200 including shipping. I decided to throw it in the garbage rather than pay for the second repair… Read Full Review

“I purchased the Gaggia 74877 Syncrony compact digital...”

Written on: 18/12/2005 by elmhurst (1 review written)

I purchased the Gaggia 74877 Syncrony compact digital coffee making machine 2 years ago, and it made a reasonable espresso and had a good milk frothing nozzle. However, after only 16 months the machine was leaking underneath and steam was pouring out of the steam knob. I contacted Gaggia who explained that it could be repaired under warranty, but if the fault was due to scale, the repair would be chargeable. I de-scaled the machine about every 2-3 months so I knew it was not due to scale… Read Full Review

The Gaggia 74877 Syncrony compact digital coffee maker made excellent Espresso for the first three months, then malfunctioned and even after repairs has not worked properly most notably slow coffee dispensing. I am sending it back for more repairs but would not recommend this product… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/06/2004 by bearra (1 review written)

The Gaggia Compact Digital replaces a Krups Orchestro which was a fantastic machine, however the extra controls through the digital interface make this machine a dream. The additional temperature, pre-brew, and grind controls are great. Looks wise I don't think this is a design classic like the Orchestro, but the little attention to details make this machine clearly superior! PERFECT COFFEE !!… Read Full Review

Could provide a bit more info, what are the extra controls through the digital interface you mention, how easy is it to work, you mention that the additional temperature, pre brew, and grind controls are great, but you don't say what these functions do, and how easy they are to work.
