Bottom Line: Uniform grind, excellent for drip (& mokabrew) machines
Positive Product Points

Uniform grind.
No static cling.
Easy to clean.

Negative Product Points

One bean always gets caught on top of the auger.
A few grams of coffee is trapped at the base of the burr.
On/off only via timer, or rotating the bin thru the coarser settings

Detailed Commentary

I have two of these - one plastic (office), the other brushed chrome (home). Both do an excellent job, tho' i must admit that  old Krups whizzers were my only basis for comparison.  I prefer the heft of the zinc casting, but the plastic unit is slightly  quieter - the casing may absorb some of the higher frequency noise. Build quality seems to be reasonably high; motor sounds like it has decent bearings.  I typically set the grind for the middle of the 'fine' range for my Moka Brew; low end of 'mid' for drip. On/off control is limited to the mechanical timer, and the bin interlock - sufficient for my needs (i don't do expresso). Only real downside appears to be the amount (several grams) of ground coffee that gets captured at the base of the burr.
