Positive Product Points

Versatile; Has both doser and container for ground coffee.

Negative Product Points

Doser short lived.

Detailed Commentary

Doser lasts about a month before the teeth slip.  Re-engineering fixed the problem, but the doser outlet is too low to accomidate a portafilter.
Inconsistent grind at espresso level.  Blades are uneven and rub when trying to get the required "fineness" of grind.  Only two "clicks" available to adjust grind at this level.  Paid $99
