Bottom Line: Not perfect, but the problems are periferal. The grind this machine produces is top notch.
Grant Watt (quality: 5.4) 05.21.2005 Rating: 10.0
Bottom Line: Perfectly matched to the Siliva.  Look no further.
Gino Magnotta (quality: 8.0) 05.14.2008 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Despite a few frustrating quirks, this grinder can grind - consistently and at a fair price.  In the end, this is what a grinder needs to do.  There are better grinders out there, but they also cost more.  Simple as that.

Endo Smith (quality: 7.1) 07.09.2008 Rating: 6.0
Bottom Line: There is a real need for a simple, solid grinder in the $300 range that fits between the cheaper Baratza models and the more expensive Mazzers. Unfortunately, the Rocky is not it.

Bottom Line: BEST unit for the price, despite design problem!
