Bottom Line: Simple, small grinder for people that are buying their own beans - but loud.
Positive Product Points

Small, not expensive, simple to operate.  Consistent, easy to use and clean

Negative Product Points

Plastic grind catcher that could break really easy.  VERY NOISY.  Small bean reservior.

Detailed Commentary

I don't remember what I paid but it was around $100 I think off Amazon.  I really like this grinder - it is used 6-7 times a week and I've never had an issue after one year.  It is very simple to put together.  Not a bother to clean.  

By twisting the the reservior you can select the texture of the grind (which I haven't noticed to be too significant).  Some times if the beans are oily they will stick to the inside of the reservior but that's no issue.  I usually weigh the amount of beans I'll grind and pour them in the hopper and press start leaving the "timer" go as long as possible.  I usually grind 60g for my pot and that normally will fill the hopper and use a minute to grind.  It's a great piece of equipment for someone who likes to grind their own beans.

It would be MAGIC if they produced a grinder that weighed the beans once they were ground - so you could set it to 50g or 60g depending on how much you wanted...

Buying Experience

From Amazon - no issue.
