Bottom Line: If you can find it on sale, go for it, otherwise, if you need a serious grinder, go for the nemox, Le'lit, Ascaso, or Gaggia.
Positive Product Points

Small, easy to set up and use, easy to clean, hopper holds plenty, great for french press, drip, or cupping.

Negative Product Points

LOUD!!! grinds end up on counter (all grinders do this) the plastic collection chamber could be done away with. small burrs.

Detailed Commentary

Because my Ascaso is stepless and set for espresso, I needed a small inexpensive grinder that was capable for press, drip, and cupping. The grinder is loud for a small machine and the burrs are very small, but it gets the job done, without any serious bean heating. The plastic collection chamber is a static box, fines stick to the plastic and make pouring from it a pain. I found taping a plastic rod into the locking mechanism, and using a paper cup as a doser to be a quick fix (Im working out a more permanent one).
The timer is a bit useless, for me anyway, as I dont like a machine telling me how much 8cups worth is, so I find myself hitting the button and sliding the timer off when I feel I have enough.

I like the grinder, its small size makes it perfect and while it is a bit loud in the morning, the fresh coffee usually assuages any angry roommates temperament issue.

Buying Experience

Macy's what do you expect
