Detailed Commentary

I thought that I loved my 169DG, but the Wall Mounted 171 has all the guality and features of the 169 and is easier to grind with.

I tried it for drip and it takes 5 minutes and a half to two minutes to grind enough beans to fill a Glad Sandwich bag. For espresso it take about 2 minutes to make enough for four shots. I usually start my machine make the lunches for the family while the X-5 warms up. I grind the coffee when the machine is warm. Wow, what great start to the morning!! The great smell of fresh ground coffee (check out Moon's Coffee at http://www.thuntek.net/coffeemoons/moonsite.html) followed by the aroma of espresso.

Know that this grinder will grind fine enough for Turkish coffee.  My first attempt created such a fine grind that my X-5 wouldn't  pump through the portafilter. The various grinds are all consistent and the grind selection doesn't "float", it holds its setting well.

Buying Experience

The Ebay vendor (an individual) was great.
