I personally take most reviews (including the ones here) with some skepticism.  I just checked the reviews here and there seems to be 15 good reviews for every one bad one.  Do the good ones hold any value to you?

Posted February 9, 2011 link

I looked at the positive reviews, and from those reviews I knew that the Baratza was going to give good, consistent grinds. And, I have no concerns about that matter. But, I was looking for both performance and durability. For me, a grinder, no matter how well it performed, was not something I'd want if it was going to break down in a short time.

With most reviews, not just for coffee grinders, the item's performance gets reviewed out of the box when its brand new. But, with a lot of items produced today, they're not designed to last long. That becomes an issue when most reviewers don't go back and re-edit their initial review when they encounter problems later on. In light of that, I always try to look at reviews where it was used for awhile, not the ones where they just had it for a week before they wrote their review.
