Positive Product Points

The range of adjustment for the grind gives me everything I need with my Saeco Classico espresso machine.

Negative Product Points

The much lamented anti-static flapper is not too difficult to get around.  Some have even removed it but  would recommend doing a search on alt.coffee and see what others have done.  I find mine isn't problematic at all but that's undoubtedly due to the low humidity around here.

Detailed Commentary

My first non-blade grinder to go with my first pump espresso machine.  Much research led me to this one for $125 and I haven't been disappointed.  At a #2 to 3 grind, depending on the oiliness of the beans used and a run of between 3 and 4 on the timer gives me a full portafilter.  It may not be the throw others recommend but it works for me just fine using a non-creama emhanced portafilter in the Classico.  Bottom line: would I buy again (with 2 months usage under my belt)?  Absolutely.
