I recently bought this Chinese made Yang Chia 600N burr grinder for approx. $200, I have the macap m5 that I use as my primary grinder, I use the 600N only on weekends, I originally thought this cheap grinder would not produce a decent grind for my silvia, but after I use it for a while I'm impress with the quality of the coffee, it has a 60mm burr so it grinds coffee very fast (even faster than the m5) and it's also quiet. Have any of you ever use it? What is your opinion?

Same grinder as mine... Feima600N, you can pick em up for about $20, $30 with better blades. My best advice for this model: Remove the dial, and reset it so the lowest setting is *just* barely coarser than lock-up. The adjustment can also be slightly filed down to remove the clicks and make it more variable. Dial in your best settings and then mark it off.
Side note: You can use this to grind pretty much anything, not just coffee. Pretty decent at making rice powder as well. Replacement blades run about $8. About $15 for ceramics.
