This is a good light-duty grinder and a definite improvement over those ubiquitous blade grinders. It takes only a little space on the counter and looks great. We've ground a few batches each day for a year with little difficulty. Very easy to clean, too.
Negative Product Points
Well, first of all, that static problem is unfortunate. The grinds can cling to the bin and spill out onto the counter when the bin is removed. It's not a big deal, but is a little annoying. Be forewarned!
The grind settings seem limited to me. Coarse isn't quite coarse enough and the espresso grind could be finer. (Of course, you can tweak the latter if you wish with some simple and "unauthorized" adjustments. I have not done so. Yet.)
I also had problems with the grind-setting mechanism getting out of whack--slipping around and jamming--but it was easy enough to fix.
Finally, it's a little too noisy for my tastes. Of course, that sound means fresh coffee or espresso is on the way, so there's positive reinforcement!
My comments above make this grinder sound worse than it is! In general, it performs like a trooper day after day for both drip coffee ad espresso.
Some advice: Keep this grinder clean. It seems susceptible to problems when grinds build up on the burrs. I'd suggest cleaning it more often than you think is necessary to keep things running as smoothly as possible.
This is a nice grinder for intermediate coffee lovers and would make a nice gift. The only reason I would not buy another is that I look forward to moving up to a more advanced model sometime in the future.
