Do you know what burr set is used in the pharos? I haven't found that info yet. I see some great reviews on it but unsure of what burrs. The only complaint I have read about the pharos is that is not very ergonomic.

I have used (one afternoon) both and liked the HG1 better. And you can put a scale under the HG1 and stop grinding when you get enough out. Something you really can't do with the pharos. And it was a heavily modded pharos.
Buying advice: GRINDER GRINDER GRINDER. Don't cheap out on the grinder.
Doubt it, they've even mentioned along the lines they purposely made the grinder to be a full "hands on" experience and "raw" if that makes sense... for ease of use, VooDoo Daddy mods are a must.
bang for the buck, Pharos, I mean you getting a Titan burr set in a grinder that cost less then was some of the minimum espresso grinders start at (like the Preciso etc). But HG One will pry be my next grinder, we basically only single dose, and the HG-One just looks so cool and easy to use.
