There are mainly two most severe issues, I think, of the same magnitude.
The first is that after each grind there is quite a lot of ground coffee left in the output channel that is stuck, and exposed to stalling. So next time either you need to drop a scoop of coffee until a new will come out or you just use staled coffee. There is the third way, you can try to shake it off which is not quite a handy task.
The second thing is the location of the push button, which is far from ergonomic. To reach it you need to put your hand under the usually hot portafilter and burn your hand. Also keeping it pressed until the portafilter basket is full may be found inconvenient by some people.
There is also a few other things to be fixed if Rancilio wants to sell their product at this price tag, like sharp edges of metal casing or the width of the output perspex pipe which is much wider than the internal output channel causing that there is a bit of ground coffee stuck forever. Or the black plastic burr cover that has screw holes not blinded thus making coffee beans fall into it, also forever or until you turn it upside down.
I am using it for roughly a month so I cannot say much more on the robustness of the machine, but judging from its weight it should be pretty solid.
It's popular amongst the coffee geek community so there are lots of instructions on how to get the best from it because even at this price point, things aren't perfect, the grinder calibration isn't terribly good and the burrs can be non-parallel which might sound pretty damning but the problems with cheaper grinders are the same but worse.
Mine has now packed up but this is because I've been adjusting the grind without running the grinder which causes beans to block the burrs so it's time to give it a clean. It's been running for a couple of years without problems and I'm expecting it to go on running for many years more unlike my previous cheaper two (both over £100 in price so I'm quids in already).
I'd recommend it if you're looking to get seriously into coffee, there's not much equipment out there that can't be improved a bit if you're prepared to tinker and a grinder like this is a much better place to start than a cheap unit with fundamental problems that can't be addressed at home.
