Bottom Line: Buy when on sale at Starbies and you‘ll have a very nice grinder with an annoying static problem.
Positive Product Points

Consistent grind. Step above blade grinders without the $400 price tag

Negative Product Points

The damned static! I got grinds jumping all over the place.

Detailed Commentary

I bought this as my first ever grinder, happily jumping over the blade grinder step. I like the grinder - it looks nice and its grind is good (for my needs) and consistent.

However, I hate the static effect that results after every grind. The act of removing the plastic grind hopper causes significant amounts of ground coffee to leap suicidally over the edge and cling to the counter, toaster, coffee maker, me, etc. Grrr. My wife is not impressed with the mess I always make when prepping some coffee!
