Bottom Line: Cheap and pretty, but no good for espresso.
Positive Product Points

Cheap, probably good for filter coffee, looks nice

Negative Product Points

Useless for espresso - Ground too coarse for espresso even with a pressurised portafilter.

Detailed Commentary

I bought one of these from whole latte love, to use with a Saeco Classico Machine. However, it appears this grinder does not grind finely or consistently enough for espresso machines. With the pressurised filter the espresso was under-extracted and weak.  The shots I poured with the non-pressurised filter were worse still. The grind is inconsistent, with some very large particles getting through. I did not try the unit for filter or french press coffee, but I would guess it might be OK for these - I eventually returned the unit under the 30 day return policy.

Buying Experience

Whole latte love have been very helpful, although the returns process is a little slow.
