Detailed Commentary

After reading the reviews on the types many coffee grinders found on this site I purchased a Bunn BCG-W from Coffee Wholesale-USA.
Being that I will only be grinding for drip and perhaps one day French press, this machine was perfect for me. For $140 dollars the main competitors were the Solis Maestro and the Capresso Infinity. The Bunn has a 3yr. warranty that's backed by phenominal customer service; unlike the others that have only a 1 yr warranty. Replacment parts are also readily available through Bunn.
The styling of the Bunn is Chrysler as opposed to a Fiat,  like the Euro grinders.
It grinds darkly roasted beans with aplomb and does not have static problems as some of the others. The grind adjustment is in the hopper, which could be inconveinient if you maintain a full hopper and change your grind frequently.  
The Bunn sells for between $140 -$180, which may seem expensive to some being that the Bunn is all plastic and does not have the alloy casings as the some of it's competitors .

Buying Experience

Smooth transaction and the lowest price from a reputable dealer found. Coffee Wholesale-USA.

Three Month Followup

I'm still very happy with the Bunn grinder. Everything still works.
No static problems nor mess.
Easy clean up.
I discovered that it won't grind unless the recepticle is in place ( Praise the Lord !!! )  Nice safety feature.
