I've owned a bunch of dishwashers and about a year ago bought my first Bosch. And I have a love-hate relationship with the thing.
Pluses: it's really good at getting dishes clean. Which is good because that's what dishwashers are supposed to do. ;^) It's also insanely quiet - before I bought it I read stories on the 'net about people accidentally opening the doors when they're running because they didn't know the machine was running, and thought the people were exaggerating. They weren't! I've done it myself.
However there are a bunch of downsides too. First, the racks, especially the lower one, don't like to stay on their tracks. With most dishwashers if you try hard enough you can make the racks go off their tracks. With the Bosch, if you try hard enough you can make them stay *on* the tracks. Really annoying. The lower rack will also try to pop a reverse wheelie as you pull it out if you load too much stuff in the front with nothing to counterbalance it in the back.
Issue #2 is that the racks are not well-designed for holding things like frying pans and large pyrex baking dishes. There's one spot that poorly accommodates one, and God help you if you need to wash two at once.
Issue #3 is it has a very fine filter that's not self-cleaning. In a way this is a good thing... with our last DW (a GE Profile), the spray arms were constantly getting clogged with food particles. But the "fine" part means it catches absolutely everything, and the "not self-cleaning" part means the stuff stays in the filter and begins to smell if you don't clean the filter almost every time you use the machine.
All in all I'd buy another as to me the pluses outweigh the minuses. But you definitely have to get used to the quirks.
