Positive Product Points
I've been using this grinder for a few months, and it has been spectacular. Love it!
Negative Product Points
The hinges for the hopper lid look like they could wear out sometime, though a lid wouldn't be necessity. I haven't used this grinder for espresso. I'm not a home espresso enthusiast. The power cord does have a funny hole to assist in pulling it out (in case of a fire?), which makes it stick out from the wall outlet a fair amount.
The grinder works wonderfully. Maintenance is virtually nothing. I absolutely love it. The coffee grind is selectable, and the selected option represents the differing grind consistencies very well.
I use it both for drip and for French press, and it delivers the goods for both of them.
The base for the grinder is solid. This grinder is perfect for the home user. Spending money on anything more that this would seem to me to be a waste, as it delivers, and is perfect for the amount of volume the typical home user grinds. If you are pulling a few hundred shots every day, this grinder is probably not for you. The only negative note on this grinder that I can think of is that the hinges for the hopper lid look like they could wear out sometime. Though I don't think it would make a difference if there was no lid.
Loved it, and it was shipped fast.
