Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It does what it's supposed to, and does it well. The digital strength setting is great.
Bad points:
It looks cheape.r in reality than on the pictures, and the startup animation gets old very quickly (that is, if you're unplugging the unit now and then)

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
looks great, and built to last
Bad points:
Seems to be very little the user can do to finely tune the toaster's settings. Anything over setting 4 would cremate a slice of bread. Even on a lowish setting the outsides toast quicker than the inside of the slice meaning you get burnt edges. Turning it down to 2 means you have to toast your bread twice to get anywhere.

Overall great style but not practical!

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Quicker toasting speed than many others on the market. Beeps as well when it is done. We have replaced an enormous 4 slice toaster for this, but due to its speed & then the beep it doesn't hold up the family! It is fairly compact & meant to stand with the shorter width facing you, as in the picture. [Bear this in mind if you would rather one that sits along the back wall, as many toasters do!]
Bad points:
Sometimes flip up the toasting rack by error if the toaster is round the wrong way. A little expensive for a 2 slice toaster, but I haven't regretted buying it!
