Ok I have narrowed it down to these two, I can afford either but am wondering if I will notice a difference between the two that justifies the 20% price difference, I use a Brewtus II and currently am using a Rocky Doser... THANKS, I am paralyzed in making this decision!

Hey Adam, I own a Compak K3, and love it. Very good consistent grind quality.

So my new K3 touch arrived yesterday... dialing in was fairly easy, nice grind quality, a little clumping but I WDT so no problem, great shot consistency and noticed an instant improvement in my shots over the rocky.  I do notice what others have said about the absence of a well done scale on the unit to see where you are dialing in the grind, this is something that compak should fix.  I will come up with a home made one as others have.  Thus far very happy with the purchase and no static whatsoever!  Also not as messy as others have suggested, find that grinds come right out in the center with little being thrown!
