From Coffeeco.com.au:

Thermoblock machines in general are cheap, and will produce average espresso and reasonable milk drinks given good technique, but anyone who wants better than average should avoid them. Another downside of aluminium thermoblocks is that they corrode, giving them a limited lifetime and introducing a fair bit of aluminium into your drink.

Taste is subjective.
I have yet to taste superlative espresso from most superautomatics - and have certainly NOT tasted great espresso from a thermoblock machine.

Thanks for the reply Colin, the explanation of cost and 'packaging' was very helpful.
