Bottom Line: If you need the basics and real cheap, then get this one, but if quality of equipment and result matters then better shell out. What you pays is what you get with grinders.
Positive Product Points

It does grind relatively even and the price / quality ratio is actually pretty good...

Negative Product Points

... but if you don't look at the price and merely at the product itself:
- it is too loud
- it has flawed design
- you can't really clean the coffee exhaust
- after 1 year the timer button kinda fell off

Detailed Commentary

... but if you don't look at the price and merely at the product itself:
- it is too loud: wakes our kids up every morning (maybe a hidden plus)
- it has flawed design: the groud coffee has to pass throug an opening on the vertical side, into the gathering chamber. Once you take the chamber off you spill coffee all over. MESSY!!! German engineering is not always very smart, I guess
- you can't really clean the coffee exhaust: unit clogs up and cannot be properly cleaned without disassembly.
- after 1 year the timer button kinda fell off

Buying Experience

bought it on Amazon for 10$ new. Good experience.
