You might check out the reviews on CoffeeGeek.com. There are several lower
cost burr grinders which seem to be built from lesser quality components. =

Here's a site to read lots of reviews of this and similar:http://www.coffeegeek.com/reviews/grinders/lapavonipaI currently have several grinders:
Rancilio Rocky (that's the really good one) - serves my espresso machine
Cory Electric mill - does a great job on my daily drip - (circa 1950's)
Melitta whirley-gig - this is at the office in case I needa quick pot
Zassenhaus 151 manual grinder - office regular grinder - love it
Zassenhaus 499 manual grinder - home, great all around - love it
Armin Trosser manual grinder - currently cleaning up - grinds great
I am a huge Zass fan. Not everybody likes to turn the crank (go to
McDonalds and drink their sludge instead - my thought). I know I know - I
have arthritis too - takes 1 minute to grind all I need....
I will never buy another cheap electric burr grinder...
