Positive Product Points

I don't think this grinder can be beaten for the relatively low price of $140. It's very well built, weighing around 6 pounds. I bought the brushed chrome model and apparently the metal housing, along with the 3-prong plug gives this unit more grounding for less static. I haven't noticed any static problems whatsoever yet. It's very easy to use, easy to clean. All beans (very oily too) feed fine. That's probably due to the small auger-like finger on top of the burr assembly. This unit grinds very consistently and from what I've seen can give any type of grind you'd ever need. I've read reviews about people claiming that it won't grind fine enough for some espresso machines or Turkish grind, but this isn't the case. This thing is capable of producing powder-like grinds if needed, which I'm sure will choke any machine. Just can't say enough about it.

Negative Product Points

The only thing I'd like to see on the unit is a pulse button, as well as the timer switch that's there. I did like that feature on the Solis Maestro and is the only thing I don't like about the Infinity.

Detailed Commentary

Like I stated before, this unit rocks. There's no way you'll find a better unit for the price. It's even available in a plastic housing for around $90, but I like the solid feel of the metal housing much better. It also seems to eliminate static as well.  This unit has alot of nice, useable features. The bean bin and the ground coffee bin fit very well and are made with durable, thick plastic. The burrs are replaceable (which won't be anytime soon), are well built with very sharp edges and do a fantastic job of producing any grind of coffee needed. It's relatively quiet with a strong, solid grinding action with no strain whatsoever. I did the first grind on one of the finest settings with dark, oily beans and this thing cranked out the powder like no tomorrow. I've definitely found a lifetime grinder to suit anything I'll ever drink.

Buying Experience

Great. I bought it at a local specialty store that has alot of great espresso machines, grinders, press pots, etc. Great price and great service. Not to mention that they roast their own beans and have what must be dozens and dozens of blends that will please anybody.
