Positive Product Points

-Portaholder gets in the way, perhaps if it were an inch lower it would be much better.
-Occasionally spits coffee far to the left dumping it onto the counter.

Detailed Commentary

Getting of sick of hand grinding with my hario skerton, I've been seeking out grinders for under $300 for the past 2 months. I'm glad I choose the PL53!
The quality of the grind is excellent for 'spro and dialing it in was a breeze although I definitely would not be wanting to change between spro' and FP on a daily basis - if ever.. Aesthetically it looks great, and is very compact.  Overall, (in my limited experience) it is a great grinder and delivers for under $300. I'm looking forward to using it more!

Buying Experience

Buying was a breeze, being out of stock until June. I had emailed 1st-Line to see if any demos were lying around. Jim from 1st-Line promptly replied that there was unit used for photography that he offered. I jumped on the opportunity to get it. The grinder arrived quickly in a well packaged box with the grinder in pristine condition. Thanks!
