Bottom Line: Between this and the Solis Maestro, get the Maestro.
Positive Product Points

Basically, it's usable. For a French press, the grind is pretty consistent
(not a ton of dust) and, after some tweaking, I was able pull properly
extracted shots on my Gaggia Baby.

Negative Product Points

Oh, boy...
1) the chute *clogs*.
2) even with the anti-static device installed, there's static.
3) cheap construction.

Detailed Commentary

1) Each time I use the grinder, I have to bang the side of the grinder with
my hand to clear the chute; a LOT gets stuck. Inelegant at best, junky
design at worst.
2) With the anti-static device removed (to prevent the chute from
clogging), there's so much static that it looks like there are gnats flying
around the grounds bin. Even if it is left in place, the grounds fly around
in the bin, or stick to the walls.
3) A little plastic disk in the bean hopper that (apparently) helps feed the
beans into the grinder already broke, even though it's not a moving/
moved part (it just sits there). I called the US distributor about this, and
they seemed to know that this was a common occurrence. The grind
adjustment wheel just broke (after ~10 months).
