www.costco.com has the Baby D for $330 - that's $69 less than WLL or any
other retailer. It's worth a look at least.

Enjoy!

My math misfired - make that $169 less than WLL.

Robert, does the Baby D have an easily adjustable OPV/PRV ?
What is your opinion on the reliability of this machine?

Thanks, Steve in Ft. Worth.

there is no pressure adjustment.
MAY be at costco as it is discontinued . . .

and the pressure? it is guaranteed to be too high.

Howdy Steve!
I've had the regular Baby on my workbench on several occasions, but never
the "D" model, so I'll base my comments on that. The Baby has an OPV/PRV
that's adjustable, but it's not an external adjustment. The hose from it
must be disconnected & the top removed - this will gain access to an
internal adjusting nut or screw. It seems like a bit of work while you're
doing it (it's necessary to reassemble everything to test, or run the risk
of water shooting out onto the electrics) but once it's done correctly it
shouldn't be needed again for a long time (if ever).

As for the reliability of the "D" model who cares? If you're familiar with
Costco's return policy you'll recall that almost all of the goods they sell
is backed by their 100% satisfaction guarantee. So if it ever fails take it
back to any Costco for you're money back.

Did this answer your questions?

Yes, your comments are appreciated. Thanks for the information. I agree
that Costco has a great return policy however, they are not guaranteed to
still carry the same machine if you just want a replacement of the same
machine. But, thats the trade-off when not dealing with a business that
services/repairs the machines that they sell. All, in all, not a bad price
for "commercial size group" machine w/three-way solenoid.

By the way, do you, by chance know of any good coffee places down in League
City, TX. My In-Laws just moved up there (from Freeport, TX) and we plan to
visit later this summer.

Steve in Ft. Worth.
