Bottom Line: A worthy grinder with only a few nuances to get around.
Beth Connors (quality: 7.3) 10.04.2005 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Unless you handle high volume grinding, get the doserless.  It's much easier to use and produces great results.
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.
Homer Simpson (quality: 6.0) 11.07.2005 Rating: 8.0
Bottom Line: Rocky works fantastic for drip!  Save your money and avoid the cheaper grinders.
Richard Wolfson (quality: 4.4) 11.08.2004 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: As advertised -- get over your fears of spending real money for a grinder and pull the trigger.  Go doserless. You won't be sorry.
Becky Grimsrud (quality: 4.3) 11.20.2004 Rating: 7.8
Bottom Line: Good grinder for the price, but do yourself a favour and go for top-of-the-line.
Laurence Yeung (quality: 7.0) 12.15.2004 Rating: 7.8
