Bottom Line: Love it but a bit pricey (and has gone up.)
Positive Product Points

Good, consistent grind. Built like a tank. Reliable as all get out.

Negative Product Points

Well. price. And the grind adjustment requires a fair amount of effort to turn, which makes it marginally more difficult to set (but only marginally; still not hard.)

Detailed Commentary

I love it. I didn't want a doser, which narrowed the options. I ended up with the Type A, which has buttons on top of the coffee shoot rather than buttons you press with the portafilter, which I like so I don't have to keep the PF jammed against the button when topping off. There are lots of different methods of level/distributing the coffee. I settled on just rapidly vibrating the PF with my hands for a few seconds after dosing. Seems to work as well as anything else and easy.

It's built like a tank. The place the cord comes out is a little awkward for my kitchen, but oh well. The price is high. In retrospect, perhaps too high (since it's also gone up). I suppose I might end up with something else today depending on the price differential (it was about $200 when I got mine).

Buying Experience

No problems. Several other places were out of stock on the Type A. Didn't require much interaction with WLL but there were no problems at all.
