Bottom Line: I like it,  I'll buy another and I recommend it - bravo.
Positive Product Points

It is labeled Salton.  In the model I have I was able to enter the grinding area and screwed down the burr holder to bring the two burrs closer.  Produced a super fine and consistent powder. I had to dial to coarser setting because the grind was turkish coffee powder.  Frankly I can't understand other reviews except that without my adjustments there  could be some truth in some complaints.  I am currently trying to purchase another as a back-up as I am aware that for the money the materials certainly are not top notch and will fail eventually.

Negative Product Points

I can't honestly find negatives considering how well it works and how inexpensive it is.  I am not having those extreme problems cited about static and clean-up issues.

Detailed Commentary

Same as Positive Points ---  It is labeled Salton.  In the model I have I was able to enter the grinding area and screwed down the burr holder to bring the two burrs closer.  Produced a super fine and consistent powder. I had to dial to coarser setting because the grind was turkish coffee powder.  Frankly I can't understand other reviews except that without my adjustments there  could be some truth in some complaints.  I am currently trying to purchase another as a back-up as I am aware that for the money the materials certainly are not top notch and will fail eventually

Buying Experience

Good experience for my needs

Three Month Followup

Well it's been more than three months and the machine still continues to work well.  This was purchased used as well.  Adjustments to the  grind setting must be made depending on the coffee bean product. I have even had to re-roast some beans to get the ginder not to clog-up.  Obviously there are many factors in the coffee grinding business other than the machine itself.  One point though - I notice the the top of the machine is always warm to the touch.  Some kind of micro-chip /transformer issue??
