If you can afford it, get a better grinder. If you can't afford it, get a Zassenhaus. This one's a freakin' monster.
Positive Product Points
Better than a blade grinder
Negative Product Points
Grind very uneven
A lot of dust
I've gotten by with this grinder for a couple of years. I've just happily retired it. I learned to hate it. It's very loud. Did I mention it's loud? Oh, yes. It's loud.
There were times I used this grinder on the back porch in the winter rather than run it in the house and wake everyone three rooms away. My husband would grimace, bitch, and moan every time I ran it.
And it's messy. The grinds tend to drive the hopper away from the machine while it's running so that if you don't watch it you'll soon have grounds spewing across the counter.
And if that doesn't happen, the static and dust will still conspire to spread grounds around most of your kitchen.
I've since retired this for a Starbucks Barista (Solis 166) grinder. My new machine cost three or four times as much, but the grind is even, and it's reasonably quiet. If I couldn't afford the Starbucks, I'd still prefer a Zassenhaus hand mill to the Braun. The Zassenhaus is a pain to use, but the quality of the grind is better, and I'd rather endure a couple minutes of hand grinding than 45 seconds of the Braun's noise. Hell, I'd almost prefer Folgers than 45 seconds of... OK, I said almost.
