I've seen this listed for sale at numerous websites, as well as at a local discount appliance store... however, I've only been able to find a grand total of two consumer reviews on epinions. Both reviews are very favorable.
Among its positives:
Meets 2004 energy compliance standards
12 lb capacity
Numerous authorized service centers in my area
Among its negatives:
Electronic controls (one more thing to break)
Very little consumer feedback
Then there's a feature that I'm not sure if it is positive or negative. The Avanti has no agitator, even though it is a top loader. Instead, it has a system where water is somehow jetted and pulsed through the clothes. This would appear closer to the frontloader method of cleaning clothes, although this IS a toploader.
