Be careful about the V1 and V2 thing if you buy a machine that sold originally outside the US. Quite a few of the non-US V1s are new.
I have a V1 Mini bought in 2009. The only reason it was designated a V1 was because I bought it in Canada direct from LaSpaziale, rather than in the US through Chris Coffee (whom have exclusive distribution rights in the US and the right to the V2 name, which they helped develop, I assume).
My V1 has all the features of the latest V2 (new circuit board, new side panels, 1 deg C accuracy etc). The only difference is the round single pressure gauge rather than the square double gauge.
To be sure, use the V1/V2, but also check the serial number and date on the badge.
