Robert Turner (quality: 5.3) 01.04.2005 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: I see why it's so popular and why so many people devote their time to make it even better.
Corey Diamond (quality: 6.8) 10.17.2003 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: The Rocky is a good quality grinder, however I think the factory should be more careful with quality control.
S Hanson (quality: 7.0) 01.01.2007 Rating: 7.4
Bottom Line: Best pro-level grinder in this price range (get the doserless, not the doser, model--even though doser looks better)
Darren L. (quality: 7.8) 04.10.2007 Rating: 7.0
Bottom Line: Excellent grinder
Scott Smith (quality: 4.3) 09.16.2004 Rating: 6.8
Bottom Line: An excellent grinder if you buy the doserless unit.
Jerome Harrison (quality: 7.3) 07.22.2008 Rating: 6.6
Bottom Line: Looks good on the counter, but cannot produce a reliable grind.  Pass on this grinder.
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.
Andre Preoteasa (quality: 4.0) 01.12.2005 Rating: 5.4
Bottom Line: Drop another $100 on a Mazzer and forget the Rocky if you're serious about espresso.
Henry Townsend (quality: 1.8) 05.03.2010 Rating: 5.2
Bottom Line: Makes good coffee,  but the machine broke down too quickly and it is taking far too long to get repaired.
Michael Nelson (quality: 6.7) 03.16.2002 Rating: 2.8
Bottom Line: Good basic construction, with several design defects and poor Q.A. at the factory
