Bottom Line: Great Consistant Grinder but a Little Messy
Positive Product Points

Great Adjustability - micro fine adjustments are very easily accomplished
Easy to Clean - Easy to disassemble for cleaning
Consistent Grind

Negative Product Points

Messy - this grinder tends to fling grinds to the left of the portafilter
Fit - without purchasing the low profile hopper it will not fit under a cabinet

Detailed Commentary

Overall I'm very happy with the Mazzer grinder purchase.  I've had this unit for several years, use it daily for 1-3 double shots and have no desire to upgrade.  I can always get consistently ground bean and with infrequent adjustment needed.  Overall this unit is built like their commercial counterparts - like a tank!  With regular maintenance this should last any home user for years if not forever.  My only complaint about this unit is its a little messy.  When dosing the coffee into your portafilter it will tend to fling grinds to the left of the portafilter.  You do get used to it and if you dose slowly its fairly clean - but still a design flaw IMO.

Buying Experience

Great expereince with WLL... never a complaint.
