Espresso Machine Information Please

I have always wanted a good one at home and I have the opportunity to purchase one from a friend at a price well below the retail price of $800. The unit in question is the Nespresso Romeo E350. I know you have to have a certain amount of pressure to make real espresso but I have no idea how much it is. They say this one has 19 bars pressure whatever that means. Anyone with a clue on this subject that can help me I would really appreciate before I lay out the coin. Thanks in advance.

19 BAR sounds pretty good. We had an Rancilio manual machcine (supposed to be one of the best) and that is about what it held. We sold it and went with an automatic due to the fact I am lazy... Is the machine your looking at manual?

It does everything. It does the grind and has it's own capsules that run like 60 cents a pop which I am not real thrilled about. Consumer reports has their cheaper models rated #1 and #2 but for some reason doesn't rate this machine. I don't know. I am still not real thrilled with laying out $350 for a espresso machine and then having to pay for capsules and coffee.
