Buy it on sale, adjust the burrs and save $100 over a similar quality grinder.
Positive Product Points
After doing to the mod to allow a finer grind, the Barista is perfectly capable of grinding for Silvia or any other quality espresso machine, plus it's easy to set for french press as well.
Negative Product Points
As it ships from the factory it, most likely, is not set fine enough for espresso and so you need to disassemble and reset.
While it is a hassle to have to dissasemble and adjust the burr settings to allow for a fine grind, doing so saves you $100 over a comparable grinder, and only have to do this once. The Barista is small and light, but if you are using it at home use it is more than capable. In fact, being on the small side is nice as it has a small footprint on the counter. It's also fairly quiet, at least for this price range. I got mine on sale for $99, making it a no-brainer. If you see it for this price, jump on it.
Easy as can be.
Three Month Followup
After three months the Barista is still a bargain. It grinds fine enough for every roast I've tried, and is very consistent. The only drawback I have found is that repeating an intermediate setting (between clicks) is a hassle. That said, I would not change my ratings. This is an affordable workhorse and a wonderful value, made especially for someone who only pulls a couple of shots a day or so.
