Bottom Line: Solis 166 - IT ROCKS!!!
Positive Product Points

Easy to operate.  Ruthless burrs that simply OBLITERATE the beans!!

Negative Product Points

Dial timer, Id prefer an on/off switch.  Hopper for beans is juuuust a wee bit small.

Detailed Commentary

What a GREAT product!!  I did my homework after my Capresso burr grinder burned up and arrived at the 166.  What a SOLID choice!!!  Its quiet, has a smaller foot print than the Capresso, its neater and FAAAAAR more effective at pulverizing beans.  THe quality of grind is fantastic.  In fact, what the Capresso said was its finest is probably in the top two largest grind settings on the 166.  I did not know that a burr grinder could perform so well.

I got mine at the Coffee Bean Corral for $125.00 shipped and in my opinion worth EVERY cent!
