Bottom Line: Good for everything but espresso
Positive Product Points

Good for drip, french press
Easy to use and clean
Small and sturdy, good for travel

Negative Product Points

Grind isn't fine enough for espresso, even with the hack that apparently allows a finer grind I couldn't even reach 15 on my Saeco Aroma

Detailed Commentary

This really isn't a bad grinder if you have the right expectations. It works great with french press, drip, and vac, the grinds are pretty even and nice for all 3 and it serves as a good companion for a dedicated espresso grinder. It's small enough to store, saving some counter space and it feels pretty solid and sturdy enough to be moved or for travel. I suppose the main issue I had with this is I thought it would be good enough for espresso, and it just simply wasn't. Now that I've stuck it in the FP/Drip/Vac role I'm much happier with my purchase.  I would probably buy this again for the price as a secondary grinder.

Buying Experience

eBay buyer was good, got it during the 30% cashback for about $80.
