All I can say is that I love my Alp and have been using it for as 
long as they have been on the market.  But if my Alp ever dies I will 
NOT replace it with the $500+ Bravi.  WAY too much money for what it is.

I have the Bravi and love it. I bought mine from Target online for a list
Price of just over $400 and then added a 10% off coupon on top of that.
No free coffee, though:http://www.target.com/gp/search.html/ref=sr_bx_1/601-8725031-4262502?field-keywords=bravi&url=index%3Dtarget&x(&y

Well, that is a LITTLE better.
All I can tell you is how my Alp works.  I have no experience with 
the Bravi.  The Alp standard load is 8 oz. (1/2 pound).  My Alp work 
very very well for run of the mill 1/2 pound roasting to full 
city.  I have no complaints about it at all.  I use it once a 
week.  However, I also do not try to modify the profile.... which is 
not possible with the Alp (and I assume the Bravi).  The Alp 
regulates the internal temperature and the only user variable is the 
roast duration.

My Alps finally died and I got a Hottop. I am a happy camper. One smallt 
hing I "noticed" right away with my Hottop was the smalls of roasting (I 
roast on a downdraft stove). With the Alps the smells were not 
particularly pleasant although the end roast was good. The various 
yeasty smells given off by the Hottop as the beans roast are wonderful. 
I generally turn on the downdraft fan, aided by a cardboard box, at or 
into the first crack leaving the earlier smaells to enjoy.
If I had my way, other than a computer driven HT, I would "reverse the 
leads" to the elapsed timer so the temperature was default.
