Bottom Line: Good, and delivers an even fine grind. But needs a finer grind setting.  Small, quiet, and "not too expensive" Easy to clean.
Positive Product Points

Quiet, conical grinder,  even grind, "timer", small.  The top grinding cone/wheel removes eaisly so you can clean it.

Negative Product Points

The finest grind is a bit too course. Hopper is of thin plastic. The claim is that it is "Static Free"....NOT

Detailed Commentary

Price:$ 125.00 (It is supposed to go on sale at Starbucks, so I heard in March).  On-line 125.00 as the "solis".  Needs to have a finer grind setting than it does. Not for turkish, but just a a bit finer.  The fine grind is close to salt grains and that is good, but one more fine setting.
