Bottom Line: A pretty good burr grinder for not-yet-hardcore coffee lover?
Positive Product Points

Quiet: compare with other "lower than $150 burr grinders" I tried, this is quiet enough.
Grind: French Press and Aeropress only so far. I don't get a lot of leftover at bottom of my cup.
Ease of Cleaning: No need to unscrew anything. A simple brush will do.
DESIGN: This is not the main reason I bought it, but I found its importance over time.

Negative Product Points

Static: You need a good shake to make sure nothing left in your machine.
Short Cord: Another ft will help a lot.
Plastic parts: I never liked to have any plastic parts directly contact food materials. Coffee in this case. After a period of time it stays on there. Can try to reduce the percentage of plastic using.

Detailed Commentary

Overall I like it a lot. It does a good job for the price I paid.
Other comments I read have already covered most of this machine, so I want to focus on the one thing I found very important after time.

The DESIGN: Living in a crowded city, you get to share space. In the shared space, you have to beware of what you present. The design of this grinder survived the standard of my roommates. Three of them are all females, all designers, and only one not-so-often coffee drinkers. For 3 weeks it stayed in the kitchen without any request for putting it into cabinet after use. This is something I didn't think of before purchase.

Buying Experience

Bought it on Amazon. Excellent service including shipping as always.
